==== Can’t this be cheated? ====
We also discussed abuse. When we recieve an application, we contact the mentioned OpenStreetMap account(s) through the OSM messgaingmessaging system to confirm they are owned by the applicant. You could of course make tiny contributions like wiggling a single node on 60 days, and maybe go undetected and get your membership. But that would be fraud, and the membership could be revoked if MWG finds out that the contributions are not meaningful.
==== Does paid mapping count? ====
The “active contributor program” is there to measure your engagement towards the project. In the first place, we think this is shown by volunteer activities for the project. If you do organizing or mapping for OSM as a part of your paid job, that is not necessarily a show of engagement with the project. By default, we would not include these activities as qualifying for this type of membership. But feel free to explain your contributions, and the Board will have a vote.
==== How are my changes devideddivided into days for measuring 42 mapping days ====
For measuring the mapping days, the time stamp of the first element of each changeset is used. Typically, all changes in a change set have the same time stamp. A day is defined in UTC from midnight to midnight.
