Hi, Map-Finder reported that he wants to become moderator in this subforum. What do you think about this proposition?

Re: Proposed moderator for Greece forum

Moderators have to be trusted by community. The discussion however is available where all such requests are made:

Re: Proposed moderator for Greece forum

Dear JayCBR, are you talking seriously?
Who went behind your backs?
I took the initiative so that to offer some things to Greek community (should i remind you, your democratic bullying about a new post I made)  and you just vote(?) No without any serious reason.
kocio knows exactly what was the subject of our conversation, and should mention it on this post.
After that I suggest you, the democratic person to be Moderator.
Will you join the forum everyday so that to moderate it?
I expect your next answer on next weekend.

@kocio

kocio Do you remember what i asked at my 1st - 1st post?
"I would like to know who can make a post sticky?"
This had to do with my older post "https://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?id=65180" with title "Βασικές οδηγίες για χαρτογράφηση δρόμων (cab it be sticky?)"
Do you know how many Greek member took part in this post?
Only 2 (two) beatnickgr & JayCBR.
All Greek members should participate posting their suggestions, but none cared about it.
My intention was to build a clean and basic guidance in Greek for Greek users of the forum.
This could be only if I was becoming a moderator, so that to keep clean and in order this post (merging, moving and adding new sentences and posts).
That's why I asked to be a moderator. But JayCBR thinks that I am the dictator or the bad guy that went at their back (of 2 active members) and to harm them!
Anyway i give up this try, since mr JayCBR thinks he can do better than me, with his participation only every weekend.
kocio thank you for representing my intentions with the plain way "Do you want him for Moderator". Thank you again.

I don't have to apologize to any of you, but if you search what I 've done for OpenStreetMap (mapping, translation from English to Greek in Wiki and more) you will see a global try to make this Project better all time. I don't know why some members are hostile with my contribution or my intention.
From now on, only mapping.
JayCBR will make the forum better.

Re: Proposed moderator for Greece forum

I apologise for the delay in replying, but I can support nomination of Map-Finder if the following are respected:

1. For named streets, "Οδός" and "Λεωφόρος" are not used as a prefix in name=*, per current consensus: I am neutral on the subject of "Περιφερειακός", "Εθνική Οδός", "Επαρχιακή Οδός" and "Αυτοκινητόδρομος" being used in name=*, and I am also neutral on "Οδός" and "Λεωφόρος" being under name:prefix=*.

2. Names in other languages, particularly the languages of North Macedonia and Turkey, should not be removed without a good reason: it is inexcusable to remove name:mk=* and name:tr=* on political grounds, since OpenStreetMap is not a political battleground.

In general, I am not here to argue about politics, and I do not want to argue about politics here, since it has caused me to suffer from depression and suicidal thoughts.

As I wrote before, my intention is to build the guide and nothing more.

Re: Proposed moderator for Greece forum

I am interested to see a draft of the proposed guide that addresses my concerns. I do not think that this is too much, since my concerns about politically-motivated edits are not intended to be aimed at anyone in particular.

Re: Proposed moderator for Greece forum

My idea was about to have a common way to create things on OpenStreetMap.
For example, there are various ways to create toll stations.
I am planning to make some examples, by uploading captures of the map and after this, Greek community will choose the best way, that will remain on the post. All the others will be deleted.
So this post will have title "Toll Stations".

I, personnaly, use OpenStreetMap database as navigator. So, I would like things to represent reallity and not a "beautiful" or "fantastic" scenery.

Re: Proposed moderator for Greece forum

I think "quality" is the word we are looking for, and it is possible to represent reality with the best quality.
