Inform users of tiles.wmflabs.org that they can switch to the production tile server
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Most users of tiles.wmflabs.org would be better suited to the production tile server.

If people want to stick with tiles.wmflabs.org, they can - it's not a WMF maintained resource, so it's no additional development work for any teams, but I'd hate to see people using it because they didn't realize they could substitute it.

I'm not sure who to ask for a list of users. This should be in server logs somewhere in the form of referrers.

If people are wanting to stick with it, it'd be good to know why and what they're getting from the old osm-carto style it uses that the current WMF style doesn't do.

Hi, thanks for filing this task.
Community Relations has a little template that's useful for us to gather information around the request for support.
I think we're good on the "What is the problem?" point, here are the other questions, copied from https://office.wikimedia.org/wiki/Community_Relations#Support for your convenience.

  1. How can we help you?
  2. What does success look like?
  3. What is your deadline?

Based on your answers, I should be able to properly resource this project. (If you could please remove Chris as the assignee, as I believe he can't help here ATM.)
Thanks!

Sorry I didn't see the comments before. I agree with you @Elitre, we're going to decline for now, since we are not going to be working on this (we're busy doing the critical maintenance tasks) and there is no maps team.

We can re-open if we or others need it in the future.

Thanks for the guidelines for working with community relations 👍
