[OSM-talk] OSM Streak: edit the map every day

I am Ilya and I have been uploading changesets 15 days in a row. Not 
because I'm so into it or somebody makes me: I've made a tool that 
reminds me to do it. In a year I expect my HDYC activity chart to be 
completely filled. And you can have the same too.

Introducing OSM Streak: a website that gives you points for submitting 
changesets each day:


You get 1 point for the first changeset, and then you get more: for 
example, I will receive 4 points for my next changeset tomorrow. And 
that is not all: it gives you a random task each day, so you don't stare 
at the map trying to come up with an idea. For completing a task, you 
get an extra point. And when you map many days in a row, you gain 
levels, which open more tasks.

Forgetting to visit a website is expectable, so OSM Streak is also a 
Telegram bot (find the link on the "Connect" page). With the bot, you 
can forget about the website: it accepts changesets and sends you tasks 
every day. Alternatively, you can subscribe to e-mail notifications, 
which will be sent on 1:00 UTC.

All the tasks and the website and the bot can (and should!) be 
translated into your language. We have English and Russian, and I would 
be very grateful for more translations:


Have a truly mappy new year,
