Seandebasti's Diary

Recent diary entries

First, I am human not a AI.

Recently I got a block by SomeoneElse mostly because my changeset comments were not perfect. I understand their meaning, but the DWG could have talked about it, before blocking just for this.

Explanation for my changeset comments:

I am using hashtag comments, like #DEU, #industry, etc. already a long while. Using hashtags leads in a time, where I got introduced in usecases of hashtags at SOTM and I saw tools who evaluates them (like HDYC and other organised mapping (like HOTOSM using hashtags automatically. The people are using hashtags to filter posts in social network platforms like Twitter.

According to chatgpt you can quickly find an simple explanation what #DEU or #LBY means. It is about the code of ISO 3166-1 alpha 2 which is just a indicator for the countries where the changeset was edited.

The other hashtags were just known categories and local or professional abbrevations. Maybe there is a gap of categorizing or filter changesets for a better overview where and what a mapper is editing.

If you have questions, I am happy to answer them.
