OSMUK folks. We have a UK forum right here!

Message to OSMUK folks who are discussing on Loomio whether we could install forum software...

We have a UK forum right here!

There's also an atom feed of UK posts. Maybe we could syndicate these forum discussions onto


Also hello to any folks who hang out here on the UK forum! Heard of OSMUK?!

I wonder what percentage of folks who participate on here, are also chatting on OSMUK's Loomio. Is there lots of crossover? or are these weirdly separate communities, like ships passing in the night?

Re: OSMUK folks. We have a UK forum right here!

Hello Harry!

It's fairly low-volume here - I tend to post GB-specific questions of my own to the talk-GB mailing list, but do answer questions here (often from people for whom the forum is the default for their community, so they not unnaturally assume that other communities are the same).

I had always assumed that the reason why the OSM UK chapter (which is a subset of people involved in OSM in the UK) wanted a separate forum was that they wanted a closed rather than an open space, together with the ability to do e.g. polls which aren't natively supported by FluxBB (though it looks like there's an add-on for that: ), and at least one of the people involved in setting up the UK chapter was not a fan of open mailing lists.

One thing that does seem to be missing - (and which it gets its data from) doesn't seem to know about the forum.  I'd have expected a "world-level" resource in … rces/world for it.
