Mapathon "Operation Cowboy" - 23. -25.11.

!i!
Holla spanish community,

(sorry I can't write in spanish, but maybe someone of you might
translate it, for your mappers that only speak spanish?)

I'd like to announce the fellow of the "night of the living maps" party:
"Operation cowboy" :
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Operation_cowboy
Guess what, this time it's about mapping the America :)
Maybe the people from spain will start a local party und assist the US
community?

The date is the weekend from 23.11 till Sunday, so everybody should have
a chance to get a day, where he can join a local party.
To make it more easy to get a room, I give you this announcement already
today, even if there are still some todos (detailed mission statement,
party map, logo, ...).
So please still wait with an official announcement to the public, I bet
we can fix this things next week.

So if you like to *start a local party* , create a wiki page (or reuse
the local user group page or your city page) and paste/adapt this:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Template:Operation_cowboy
Cool mappers can add this button to the user page, too ;)
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Template:User_OPC

But hey, I would *need still some help* , to get all the things ready:

1. *Wiki translation*
Would be great if the wiki could be translated in other spanish as well.
(maybe you can recycle old NOTLM translations)?

2. *Social media*
Is there anybody who likes to start further social channels as facebook
etc? It's pretty simple, just to spread the things we post at Twitter
and of course answer questions and present the project (create events ...).

Later:
Creating a "thank you all" poster with all teams or actually a video
clip with animated edits and country music would be a great finale :)

If you have any questions/ideas, just post it (sorry in english please).
I think all general critics on armchair mapping or our choice of the
target area would be better in a seperated topic, as the past showed,
that they generate a lot of traffic.

Greetings from Germany,
Matthias
