I've been doing for the past few days and it's been a really neat way to get into improving little by little. Tonight I sat down to add ten nodes to a river, and ended up posting up over 1000 changed nodes just now. In addition to greatly improving the way for the Ibina River in the DRC in Africa, I added over 50km of previously-unmapped tributaries while I was at it, and tidied up a few nearby villages:

I'm now up to 9 days in a row, and 27 points. Onward and upward :)

Many thanks to @Doudouosm for introducing me to it, it's been very effective!

Oh, and thanks to @inan for making the post that @Doudouosm boosted in the first place!

@cincodenada @Doudouosm Hey Joel, great work there with Ibina River. Also thanks for the shout out :) OSM Streak is indeed a great tool to boost the motivation for contributing to OSM. I'm on my 51st day now and planning to keep it going as far as I could. By the way, Ilya Zverev has some other great tools on You should check them if you haven't already.
