This is the unofficial OSGeo member list. If it works out someone might want to make a motion that something along this line will document each user's OSGeo's official Membership Process.

Introduction

Add yourself (by adding this category tag to your user page as [[Category:OSGeo Member]]). Everyone is welcome. Please add some information about yourself on your user page (must be logged in). You may input your latitude and longitude on your user page. Read the discussion page to see what could be done with those coordinates. Hack it if you feel like it. Watch out for Axis Order Confusion when you do it.

Naming

If you want your name to appear in the list, rather than the User: prefix foloowed by your OSGeo userid, follow these steps:

  • Construct a URL consisting of "http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/" plus your name, where spaces in your name are replaced by underscore (_) characters. For example, if your name was "First Last", the URL would be "http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/First_Last".
  • Visit that URL. If you get a page that says "There is currently no text in this page, you can search for this page title in other pages or edit this page", then 'your' page doesn't yet exist, and you can proceed with the next step. If you find that the page does already exist, then you will have to go back to the prior step and select a 'different name' (e.g. perhaps add your middle initial).
  • Select the "edit this page" link. You now have to add two things to this page:
    • A redirect to your user page. For example, if your user page is at [[User:FLast]], then add this line: #redirect[[User:FLast]]
    • Tag this page so that it appears in the OSGeo Membership list. You do that by adding this line: [[Category:OSGeo Member]]
  • Now save your new page. Do not add a [[Category:OSGeo Member]] tag to your user page.
