Hellou, I am mapping and editing OSM one year and
I am a fresh member (only few days) but I am for opening of
member list too and I agree with every single word that
Ilya Zverev wrote. Some sort of "certification", "card", "ID"
or something similar would be good.

>Hi. I'm also for opening of member list, and I find Oleksiy's proposal of membership cards great, though not for reasons he states :) I think just an offer of receiving something tangible from OSMF would significantly increase membership numbers. Right now the most frequent answer to "what do I get if I join" from members is "uhm...". A single card, which I hope is not too expensive to make, would become a token that less active OSM contributors would value and show off a lot. It could be shown to people they encounter while mapping villages: it makes them not suspicious strangers with cameras, but verified members of a worldwide organization. And the card could be given for paying for three or more years in advance, to cover production costs, which also would result in less members leaving the OSMF each year.
