gpxeditor problems
« on: August 05, 2019, 04:46:42 pm »
Does anyone know if there a problem with gpxeditor.co.uk?  The option of using OSM Cyclemap seems to have gone and, when I tried to email admin@gpxeditor.co.uk, the email bounced back as undeliverable.

Yes, I noticed over the weekend that Open Cycle Map has disappeared for me too  :(

(I own the site) The email address is definitely working as I'm getting emails from people on it, but if you are having problems with it you're welcome to pm me as an alternative.

But yes the option of using OCM has been removed I'm afraid, sorry.
It is what it is. It's not what it's not, so it must be what it is.

I switched over to a subscription with gpxeditor.   Really great, thanks for all the work on it

Really needs OCM in my opinion.

At a guess I'd say the site tripped over the 150,000 tile requests per month limit that you can do with a free account.

The first non-free tier is £95/month, probably too much given the relatively few subscriptions and other costs.

Here's OCM's pricing tier page: https://www.thunderforest.com/pricing/

So if 57 people ( 95*12 ~= 20*57) subscribe you can have OCM again

That's reminded me, I should really subscribe as it's useful for doing various bits of route planning (including Veloviewer tile bagging).

Done.

Not worried personally about OCM though.

A lot of people doing stuff with tracks in France (for some reason) could have caused a spike in Open Cycle Map usage on the site.
