Revision as of 20:41, 24 May 2023

Be friendly: OpenGeofiction can be confusing at first

This is a page for experienced mappers to identify and contact new users editing in the wrong places. Instructions are as follows:

  1. Search: The new user list below is updated every 30 minutes, listing the newest user with map edits at the top. Click on a username (skipping any on the "Contacted users" list) and then click "Edits" to see where they're editing. Users with "B" next to their name have an active block, and "b" have been blocked in the past.
  2. Confirm & List: If they seem lost, look at the overview map to make sure they do not own the area, and check the "Contacted users" list below to confirm they haven't already been contacted. If they're not on the list, add them at the top. Use the format * {{OGF user|NEWUSERNAME}} ~~~~
  3. Contact: Send the user a friendly message (see suggested message) via OGF inbox. If they are violating other rules (e.g. well-known place names, real companies/organizations, unrealistic content/scale, etc), you can mention those things as well.
  4. Check back: If they don't reply to your message, look in on their mapping later. If they are still editing inappropriately, notify admin.
  5. The recent edits list on the Dashboard is also a useful resource, as is the daily activity map.


Contacted users New users
Please add to the top of this list, using the format:
* {{OGF user|NEWUSERNAME}} ~~~~

  • Please add to the top of this list, not the bottom.

Suggested message

Hi there, I just noticed your [recent mapping](ADD LINK TO CHANGESET) in OpenGeofiction.

Unfortunately, this area is not open to public editing. Before making any more edits here, please take a moment to read the [site policies page,](https://wiki.opengeofiction.net/index.php/OpenGeofiction:Site_policies) which has instructions for new users.

Please note that new users can edit only in the blue territories on the [overview map.](http://wiki.opengeofiction.net/index.php/OpenGeofiction:Territories) Once you've built up a lengthier edit history, you will be able to [request a territory](https://wiki.opengeofiction.net/index.php/OpenGeofiction:Territory_assignment). You may also be interested in participating in a [collaborative project](https://wiki.opengeofiction.net/index.php/OpenGeofiction:List_of_collaborative_projects).

If you have questions or anything, just let me know. Thanks for understanding, and welcome to our world! 

YOUR_USERNAME (assisting the OpenGeofiction admin team)
