Italy subcategory

Category name

Italia (Italy)

Is this a top-level category or a subcategory?

Subcategory of “Communities” main category

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

The main purpose is to have category where new users and old users can discuss topics about Italian mapping standards and make proposals while speaking their native language

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

None of the other categories are italian-language based

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

There’s a specific category in the old forum (users: Italy / OpenStreetMap Forum)

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

The former platform was a low volume platform (I think 2 posts per month in the last few months), but we are evaluating a full Mail list migration in the future

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

It should be part of the OSM Forum migration

List the usernames of the category moderators

@Mannivu main proposer of the category
@alesarrett proposed itself on the Italian ML
@dieterdreist proposed itself on the Italian ML, knows very well how the new forum works

Unfortunately, we didn’t have any moderators on the old forum. However, the proposed moderators have experience in moderating a forum and have the trust of the Italian community.
