Category "OSM Specials"

I hereby request the addition of top level category “OSM Specials”.

Category name

OSM Specials

Is this a top-level category or a subcategory?

This should be a top level category since it provides a generic home for various more specialized sub categories.

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

It should be a home for, for instance, “Android” or - what I am particularly interested in - “Garmin maps”: Discussion and help on using OSM data on specific systems, converting/adapting OSM data to specific devices.

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

The existing categories here don’t cover these subjects.

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

The old forum exists at, segment “OSM Specials”.

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

Unknown to me.

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

Unknown to me.

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

Unknown to me.

List the usernames of the category moderators

Unknown to me. I’m a new user looking for the “Garmin maps” category since it seems to be locked on the old forum. However, there seems to be no replacement here, also as of today I can’t see that the data has been migrated to here.
