ASEAN/South East Asia
For all users discussing pan-ASEAN (South East Asia) topics or topics about specific countries in ASEAN. Members of ASEAN are Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. Observers of ASEAN are East Timor and Papua New Guinea.
ASEAN countries on OSM share a lot of commonalities in terms of culture and urban geography, so it would be helpful to have a centralized place for members to share their experience. There are also established links between ASEAN countries on OSM via HOT OSM initiatives (active on facebook) and Grab organized editing activities. Also, most countries in ASEAN does not have enough member on OSM to create a new subcategory, so this also serve as a place for occasional posts about these countries.
Both Thailand and Indonesia subcategory only has 1 post per month. Posts about ASEAN countries in general on this forum is estimated to be around 1 post per week.
Existing Thailand and Indonesia forums can stay without merging. Participant at these subcategories can post either in their country-specific category or in the ASEAN category.
I try to list prominent members from ASEAN countries that is not in Thailand or Indonesia (since these countries already have their own subcategory).
