haven't seen any talk about OpenStreetMap on here. any other users/contributors?
I like to contribute using StreetComplete when I'm on walks and JOSM when I'm at home and bored

I had no idea about StreetComplete, it sounds pretty cool. I'm just an user, I sometimes use WaymarkedTrails to find hiking trails and OpenRouteService service to estimate how much I have walked (I wish there was some site especially for this and not for planning, and without needing to track myself). I have OsmAnd+ on my phone but I very rarely use it and even then just as a replacement for paper maps. I did play with the Overpass query thing once and it was pretty cool tho.

hooray, another user
yeah StreetComplete can be quite fun. clearing the entire area around where you live of tasks gives deep satisfaction. you can also leave notes for other mappers, particularly people who use JOSM in case there are errors that can't be easily fixed on your phone
if you hike a lot, consider installing Vespucci and record + upload GPS tracks. this is a great help when drawing trails

StreetComplete is great if you don't have the ability/time to manually edit the maps (I don't). I have a few hundred edits from there. I also checked the main site and there's a couple of mappers in my area. It's cool!
