Estonian category

Category name

Estonia category

Is this a top-level category or a subcategory?

Subcategory I guess. Just like all the others.

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

Estonian mappers. Currently there is no good channel for us. Only the talk-ee mailing list which is quite silent (6 posts in 2022). Discussion happens in changeset comments instead.

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

I don’t understand the question, but a place to converse in Estonian would be nice.

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

Just a defunct mailing list.

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

As I said, 6 posts in 2022. 19 in 2021. But there are several active mappers who like to chat in changeset comments, and we plan to grow the community, so we need an accessible point of entry.

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

We will post a message to the mailing list.

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

We’ll take the general guidelines thank you.

List the usernames of the category moderators

Initially just:

  • me (@Zverik). I live in Estonia, map it every day, and have an experience in moderating other communities.
  • @qqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqq who is quite active and willing to participate in the new community.

The list might change during the discussion, but this would be a good start.
