I started my first edits much later than my (2010) signup. What can I say, I lurk. I’ve started small. I have named some residential streets that I’m familiar with.
Next I plan on filling in names for more streets, and updating the new shopping center in west Madison.

Welcome to OpenStreetMap.Good that you want to suppert us.
Have fun and do not copy from other maps :-)

Welcome! I also took my time before making my first edit. It was quite daunting to think my changes would affect the map for everyone, but I read all the various guides I could find and I remember seeing a quote from Wikipedia: “be bold”.

Welcome! Nothing wrong with starting small. Careful, though - it starts small, and then the mapping bug gets you.
I have just been through a very long phase of very limited contribution due to other commitments, and I am just starting to get back into the swing.
