OSM Etiquette Guidelines

Sounds good overall! Two suggestions:

First, I’d like to note that when the OSMF board approved the Etiquette guidelines, we explicitly did so for international spaces and excluded regional communities from the scope. This was to enable the latter to set rules written in local languages and adapted to cultural expectations. There may also be specific rules for some forum categories, e.g. what kinds of content is on-topic there. So I would propose writing “enforce OSM Etiquette Guidelines and/or a local set of forum rules documented within the category as a pinned topic”.

Another addition to the process I would suggest: OSMF local chapters will be consulted when the creation of a location-based category for their region of interest is requested.
