[Talk-us] Fwd: Re: a plea to armchair mappers

Hello,

         Making imagery more up-to-date won't solve the problem.
         The real problem is that OSM never communicates with its
members, expecially not with those "armchair" mappers who do
it recreationally. They are not reading the email lists, which are
mostly geeky and obsessed with obscure details of mapping.
         Until OSM has a method of communication aimed at ALL
members, these problems will continue.
         I'm sure most "armchair mappers" never even saw Richard's
initial email.

Charlotte
