Where to merge the Panama forum?

Category name

in theory: Panama Forum ­— but read further, please.

Is this a top-level category or a subcategory?

Ideally, this would be a subcategory of LATAM, which is a subcategory of Communities, but we do not have that double sub-option, so I guess it would just flow into the LATAM subcategory, all topics tagged with Panamá? Is that an option?

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

replace the forum#61, local Panama topics. it holds announcements, questions, that are of concern to mappers local to Panama.

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

I am opening this topic not because I intend to have a new category created, but just to raise the question where do we merge the Panama Forum to?

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

as said, it already exists as the Panama Forum.

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

average possibly much than 1 message per month, seldom some bursts of activity, like one week with 5 messages.

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

I hope that the migration of the forum will include the Panama Forum.

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

Below the golden rules “assume and practice good faith”, “try to be kind”, I’m fine with the OSM Etiquette Guidelines to apply.

List the usernames of the category moderators

If we merge the Panama Forum into the Latam Category, I wish to apply as moderator for that category. I’ve been the most active contributor and user of the Panama Forum, without having had any official role there. Among other users of the forum, I don’t think any other wishes to do so, but I’m listening. I think that most have not even yet joined this community platform.
