I appreciate the gesture @EmerickPaul but I’m ok if we let this play out to see how all actors ponder and weigh the validity of the map in context with the importance of the evolving FOAM project’s vision. With this case in point, your organization was represented incorrectly by potential error (TBD) in a mapping database that we, in all our prior experiences with maps, take for granted as true or suck it up because we have no control. Here, the onus is on the community to make the hard decisions and to work towards correcting what needs be, in the name of progress.
How do we vote? One sadly must lose but a loss should not be heartfelt as surely I feel we’re both good fellas. This one though, is hard I know, and even if the vote were to go to the accuracy of the map, this forum discussion is important as it may likely become the basis to rectify future confusion or add varying protections for varying users in subsequent governance processes.
Beyond the cost of challenge, how does a mapping technicality like this affect your organization’s presence_on and/or future_use with this map or the likely inaccuracies existing on other maps? How does this location discrepancy affect businesses other than your own with differing objectives? Is this address format what all NY’s prefer or believe is standard for their representation? Does it have any affect on future FOAM implementations? Does a vote one way or another lead to difficulty or inhibit creative and accelerating use cases, especially now that we live in an age with so much logical opportunity? Is a decentralized approach to creating location standards and levels of accuracy, an imperative progressive approach?
The FOAM project attempts an evolution in mapping dynamics. Is this all for the betterment? I don’t know, but in part I think the destiny is in the hands of the greater community of participants, whether there is a shared vision, to what extent participants get involved, and how badly they want… what they see, in their mapped world of potential.
Errors will be made, feelings may be hurt, integrity may be challenged, coins may be lost but that’s all the more reason to put our heads together to see this project evolve, get past the rough stuff, and iron out the world for future users, to the aim of unbridled dynamic progress.
As for me @EmerickPaul if the vote lands to the challenger’s favor, once you revive the Bushwick Generator listing from the graveyard layer I will stake any reward received straight to your POI as a beacon of the great work you all do.
