I would like to use slippy maps in this wiki. (including the different OGF layers) --Oxalia (talk) 11:53, 2 August 2014 (CEST)
This <slippymap lat="51.485" lon="-0.15" z="15" w="450" h="300"/> should display a slippy map.

Coord template

A Template:Coord like the Template:Coord from wikipedia would be nice. --Oxalia (talk) 18:23, 10 August 2014 (CEST)

Map images

Is there any standard for the map images used in the country infobox? - If not, please develop and document a standard. --Oxalia (talk) 11:59, 2 August 2014 (CEST)


I think it is a good idea to start grouping pages into categories. If we start doing it now, the number of pages is still small, so it will be easier than in a couple of weeks.

My proposal for a category system:

  • Everything/All/Container
    • General categories (not used for normal pages)
      • Help pages
      • Maintenance pages (like Pages with broken file links)
      • Templates
    • Countries
      • One category per country, the owner of the country is free to organise this category
    • Continents
      • Continent category
        • Countries of this continent
        • Seas, large rivers etc.
    • Water
    • Harbours
    • Cities
    • etc.

How do we go about making the Babel template functional? I tried doing it, but then some of the templates were missing, so I'm currently adding all the templates that I need to complete my Babel section manually. Is this the only way to do it? tom_m7 (talk) 21:53, 6 September 2014 (CEST)

I would copy them from Wikipedia. They are from there, so I think it can be only done by manually copying. KVh (talk) 20:35, 7 September 2014 (CEST)
I'm copying Template:User pl (pl-0, pl-1...), and Template:User de-1 because i think it's missing. Is it okay? --Trabantemnaksiezyc (talk) 12:13, 23 April 2016 (CEST)

Community Sandbox

As part of my project to create a new Main Page for the wiki, I have created an OGF:Sandbox namespace for shared development work in the wiki. I'm not sure if this is the best way to do it. Feel free to correct me if this is a mistake - I'm new to the wiki business. Anyway, we need a place to put "sandbox" type work that is shared by everyone. This might be a place for other people to test changes to the Main Page, for example, before taking it "live."--Luciano (talk) 14:39, 17 February 2015 (CET)

Should we have an OGF chatroom? I was thinking of Google Hangouts maybe?
