Bangladesh subcategory

First of all, sorry for the wrong formatted link, but I can only post 1 link

Category name


Is this a top-level category or a subcategory?


Description of its purpose and which open mapping groups it will serve

It will be the place of general purpose discussion for mapping related activity in Bangladesh and will serve anyone working on or interested in the mapping activity of Bangladesh.

Why is this new category needed instead of being hosted as part of the existing ones?

Currently, there are several community channels split into different platforms, like Facebook Group, Telegram, and Mailing List for the OpenStreetMap Bangladesh community. We want to use a modern forum system to be a place to have discussions about the community.

Is this a new space or does it already exist on other platforms? Where?

  • OSM Mailling list
  • [Telegram Group](t. me/OpenStreetMapBD)
  • [Telegram Channel](t. me/osmbd)
  • [Facebook group](www. facebook. com/groups/osmbd)

(Optional) A link or list of the category specific guidelines

Current volume of messages on the former platforms, if any (per week/per month)

30-35 / per week

Is there a transition plan for the old platform to this new one? (please link or describe)

the plan is to try to start doing all the announcement and discussion here and share the link in the existing channel. this way everyone is notified and as this site only needs an OSM ID to sign up, everyone can sign in with OSM and perticipat here.
