Oktoberfest is boring; just running around and sweating in the sun + buying expensive beer, sitting and getting drunk.... all this surrounded by a noisy crowd, loud retarted music and a disco atmosphere...

Trust me, i visited it once. Therevis nothing to see and nothing to map. I would be very surprised if smbody makes a good oktoberfest map....

coronavirus outbreak theme?
haha I would be on the floor crying if you said “ Jungle ruins? “

Virus outbrake theme might actually be do able. I like the idea, not fun times right now tho, I’ll grab my tent and stay in the woods for a couple months while the rest of the city rats panic about handsanitizer.. people in Sweden are actually stealing that stuff from their workspace right now 😮

tbh.. We've been given strict orders to not go to our appointments unless it's closing/paperwork. But i'm sat here like "it's last month of the quarter... No COVID-19 is gonna stop me earning commission!"

The bad thing is, in the UK, statuary sick pay is something like £95 a week. Noone can afford to take the time off work. My mortgage is £550 a month... What do they expect people to do? The bank wont care why I can't pay. Whole control measure of this is flawed. I'd imagine similar with other countries.

As for theme, maybe some 'infection' theme would be cool.

As the season came to a halt, this month will be a grace period and the competitions will return next month. More suggestions would be good to consider.

In Sweden we get 80% paid, now including even from the first day we are home sick.

On topic: Chaotic-virus mapping theme - could that even be a thing?

Home office? Does it exists in UK? :p About banks, situation may change, I'm not sure but probably Italy did something to help people with loans. The same thing is discussed in Poland right now.
btw. Imagine that people in biggest Polish cities pay little less than 550GBP for rented flat...

About theme, maybe quarantine theme. On a border, in a city, whatever.

It does, but my job is sales, so I'm out at meetings up and down the country. I can sorta work from home but not always that simple. People tend to not buy from people they haven't met face to face. And the thing is, if you're sick. You're sick. You're not expected to work. Staying home to avoid spreading or being infected, then yes and that measure is being taken everywhere afaik. My work is headed that way since we had an email yesterday from the powers that be to reduce our appts and only go if we have to etc. So I can imagine in a week or two, we'll be working remotely.

I'd probably say in UK, average flat price would be circa £350-600 per month.. Obviously cities a lot more.

Quarantine theme is a nice idea.. Certainly different.

I think that you should prepare for some break from work or home office. Few days ago there was a big mess about closing up schools and universities in Poland, now they decided to close all shops except groceries and pharmacies and shutdown international travelling.
