Hi all,

I have written a proposal for the improvement of the current
geolocalization system used for the geonotice, being the current one
really poor and of no use in some areas. This proposal is based on the
use of the geolocalization capabilities of modern browsers.

Having a more accurate geolocalization system would benefit both
readers, which will be reading only messages interesting for people in
their areas, and the projects by fostering direct participation in
local events.

You can find the proposal here:

I know that the feature may be perceived as invasive so I would like
that as many people as possible share their opinion on this and I hope
that we can anyway start a discussion that will lead to an improved
geolocalization system, whichever we found appropriate.

Thanks for your attention,
