Some people (mea culpa) would have liked more details upfront, but in we often try things out first, and see what works. A do-ocracy. So “mod team trial” is in keeping with the OSM spirit 🙂

This is a trial for the next 8 months, in which time the Board will vote on whether to continue with this set up or not. So let's see how this trial goes. 🙂

My god, never realised how rubbish Google Maps is once you compare it to Open Street Map. Completely forgot how a good map is supposed to look and work. Here’s a compare and contrast for anyone not familiar.

The part of geek life no-one tells you about, is that you have to resubscribe to all your mailing lists.

(I know exactly what this is for, and it make perfect sense, and is verifiable data for . It's just a “double take tag”)

Do you want your posts to be seen by as many people as possible on here?

If so, it's important to use hashtags. Hashtag searches are the main way people find posts on the Fediverse. If a post doesn't have hashtags, people probably won't see it in search results.

Don't worry about using too many tags! As long as they are relevant, it is fine to have lots of tags. Many put a long list of them at the end of the post.

Also, if you are using tags, it's important to set the post's visibility to "Public" so that the post appears in search results.

On Mastodon you can set a post's visibility by clicking the visibility icon at the bottom of the post when you're writing it (the icon looks like a globe 🌐 , lock 🔒 or @ sign).

You can set your default post visibility by logging in through the website and going to Preferences > Other > Posting Privacy, select the default you want and click "Save Changes".
