Greece subcategory

Category name

Ελλάδα (Greece)

Is this a top-level category or a subcategory?

Sub-category of the Communities category, like every other local community.

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

It will serve mappers of Greece, either for cases specific to Greece or general help in the Greek language.

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

It doesn’t fit currently anywhere else, just like other communities do aswell. Plus, it may serve as a documentation gatherer for some stuff.

Is this a new space or is it already existing in other platform(s)? Where?

On the old forum (FluxBB), as users: Greece.

What’s the current volume of messages in the former platform (per week/per month)?

Pretty low. On average we could say there’s 2 topics per month and 2 posts per week. On average.

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

No, there hasn’t been any discussion for that. Although I personally consider of taking few of the topics of the old forum to reformat them in a wiki-post to properly show some useful stuff, and possibly keep them updated.

(Optional) A link or list of the category specific guidelines (if none OSM Etiquette Guidelines will apply)

We don’t have specific guidelines, so the OSM Etiquette Guidelines shall be applied.

List the usernames of the category moderators

(I’m not good at describing sometimes, I hope the above description reflects properly the general stuff of the suggested mods :d) The 3rd suggested moderator doesn’t have account yet in this forum.
The discussion for this application was open in the Greek community in the old forum, part of which also occurred in the Matrix channel of the community.
