[talk-ph] spare us a few minutes for (a little more) mapping

Hi folks.

After our little geoweek celebration [0] last week, I was approached by an
enthusiastic participant who expressed a sincere interest to map their
hometown.

To start them off, I made a low-priority task in a Tasking Manager [1] ,
where feedback can be made about their edits, and the particular job. The
plan is eventually to cover more ground, but for now, the task scope is
limited to the town center.

With very limited time for interaction, I can only introduce the rudiments
of iD editing.  I pointed out the available resources online for self-paced
learning, and the various channels they could use to reach out to fellow
mappers, - but also made sure that they could still reach out to me
personally.

My intention in this outreach, is to mentor them remotely, but made the
caveat that they can not expect me to spoon-feed them.

Show some <3, and polish off a grid, or two, or leave feedback about the
edits. They're pretty small, and it would be encouraging for them to know
that there's actually a  supportive community behind their effort.

Thanks!

/Erwin

P.S.
This isn't a "directed editing" effort. ;)
