@BalooUriza huh? Both URLs work for me?

Experimenting with initial 3D printed tiles of Dublin at 1:2000 scale and map projecting OSM https://www.reddit.com/r/openstreetmap/comments/cqabot/experimenting_with_initial_3d_printed_tiles_of/
I'm a long time #OpenStreetMap person and even I need to sit down with a pen & paper to make sure I calculate slippy map tiles numbers properly. (I was off by a power of 2 before!)
@MapAmore Hi! You post often about OSM. Did you see my post about the OpenStreetMap trunk list? ( https://en.osm.town/@rory/102615337292043644 ). If you'd like to help new random people find you, you can submit your name to the list of "people to follow" 🙂
@louis I did call it the fediverse (twice!) I mentioned Mastodon because that's a very well known term, and the whole point of this toot is to promote things and make things easier for new users. C'mon, relax. 😛
The #Trunk is several lists of people who post about a topic here on the fediverse. It's a good way for new people to get started by finding people who share their interest.
And now there's a list for OpenStreetMap folk! 🙂 If you toot a lot about #OSM and would like to help new people, request to be added to the list. Or use it to find other OSMers to follow.
grumbling about the use of map projections
@MrGrim AFAIK the actual birth date is the date OpenStreetMap.org domain name was registered, which is a little arbitrary.
"middle of August" for a birthday party is good enough IMO.
@MrGrim different local groups are having their birthday party around now.
Bummer that I missed my local #OpenStreetMap birthday party.
@AkuAnakTimur I think GL will only pay attention if their data gets deleted. Direct action and all. Remember, any OSM user can delete/revert any other edit 😉
