Hungary (Magyarország)

Category name

Hungary (Magyarország)

Is this a top-level category or a subcategory?


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

Hungarian mappers

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

Because it is a separate country (as of 2023) :slight_smile:
It would use a separate language (Hungarian), and local topics.
(See migration users: Hungary - OpenStreetMap Community Forum as well)

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

Plenty of places. (Mi az OpenStreetMap?)

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

Negligible, like a few in a month. Still, they’re pretty separate by language.

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

The main point is

  • to make it possible for users to find content here faster,
  • to separate HU language posts from English and encourage users to use it, and
  • to make it simpler to search and find topics, and maybe
  • possibility to get narrower amount of notifications?

This forum co-exists with the others, category or not.

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

General netiquette applies, with a strong emphasis on positive attitude, which is fortunately the approach of the Hungarian (and mostly of the international) OSM community.
Moderators expected to discourage personal attacks and unhelpful approach to new/inexperienced users.
