Please avoid using alternatives to the official algorithm unless there is a compelling reason to do so in your locale.
  • Alternative algorithms are appropriate for island regions or small countries without open borders. In such cases, please work towards a clear consensus with others in your graticule on the best alternative method for your region before establishing and publicising your local convention.
  • By using an alternate algorithm where it is not appropriate, you effectively fragment your graticule, reducing the number of people who might come to the same meetup.
The following method is only a suggestion. It may not be suitable for all areas requiring an alternate algorithm.


Simply add {{Alternate algorithm}} to any page to include the above announcement.
