First Day of Editing

Posted by dwbond on 15 January 2014 in English (English)

Well, I said that I would start doing this this past summer. Now I'm finally here.

My neighborhood still doesn't have any of the houses identified, so I'm going to add all of those (presuming that someone else doesn't get there first). Thus far, I've only added the street addresses for my street, but I'm going to go back and add those on now.

This is exciting. It's editing Wikipedia in 2006. People have kind of heard of it by this point, but there's still tons and tons of work to be done.

Welcome and hopefully we never reach the red tape of English Wikipedia (my local one is much friendlier...)

Welcome! Enjoy your time here! I also started editing Wikipedia in 2006, and I really started editing OSM only from 2013, so we have kind of a similar history :)
