Germany subcategory

Category name

Deutschland (Germany)

Is this a top-level category or a subcategory?


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

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

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

For all three: Replace the Germany user forum.

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

The German user forum is the main place of discussion in the German community, a lot of topics apply every week.

Integrating talk-de mailing list may be an option in the future. However, there are currently no plans to do so. In comparison to the forum, mailing list traffic is rather low.

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

The official migration process for the old
Discussion takes place in this forum post.

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

At this time, Users:Germany specific rules can be found in this forum post.

List the usernames of the category moderators
