|Adding Mobile Money Agents to OSM||about 1 month ago||
Agree, just decide which tag they should be filed under and then start to tag them. Easy enough to do tiles or POI search for them then.
|MapBBCode: free maps for everyone||about 1 month ago||
This looks fantastic! Looking forward to delving into it and test it out!
|What is the OpenStreetMap convention? Do we tag addresses on buildings or on separate nodes?||about 1 month ago||
The margin is probably wider. In Iceland we mark both the building way and add addr also to any shops for example within the building.
This means that the shop entry by itself can stand alone and also by looking for a particular address you see the corresponding building, not the node for the hairdresser there as that might be confusing when you know your dentist is there (but his node is missing).
Personally I understand nodes as addresses when dealing with multiple addresses in a single building complex, but for stand alone buildings a node makes no sense to me personally.
|Artwork : only for tourists||about 2 months ago||
Good point. Much left to do in making sense of what was arbitrary tagging that has since become the standard to use if you want default Mapnik to render it.
|First buildings and addresses in New York City||about 2 months ago||
Interesting. Are we able to create own projects on Task Manager yet? I am not useful for NYC but have two sparsely populated countries in mind.
|Wad Medani streets||2 months ago||
Nice work, a lot of Africa is undermapped, local knowledge incredibly important there!
|How to add new Business||3 months ago|
|Some more Android hackery for efficent mobile surveys||3 months ago||
Interesting feature, was unaware mobile phones had a compass
|Texas Farm to Market Roads, the end...||4 months ago||
Congratulations! It's the little things happening beyond the big cities that are vital to OSM and allow it to show just how vital it is to be crowd-sourced.
|Using OSM on a phone Part 2 (plus a protoype)||4 months ago||
Precisely what was bugging me on my BlackBerry Curve, until the latest update when the map just doesn't load.
I tried your page on the Curve, I would like to have some text next to the search box, when you click on "Just show me a map" you are not shown a map but a searchbox with no indicator of what goes in it. Just a simple "Enter name of location" would help tremendously.
When I do get the map it is absolutely miniscule, the search box and white area around it takes half the screen and the map is about 50 pixels high if so.
|GPSMash update - Support for NMEA import, data cleanup updates||4 months ago||
Very interesting, nice visual output. Looks like something that could help me with introducing OSM to people, am about to finish mapping (buildings and their numbers, streets, sidewalks, paths) my hometown and want to present it with a bit of flair to show the work behind it (quite a few .gpx files used to help make it better) and to try and get official sources to release data for it (fire hydrants and other).
If I do manage to do something with it I'll let you know!

Best of luck. Remember to check wiki if in doubt and you can also find people answering questions on IRC
