Description

These days the Wikimedia tile server isn't "open" anymore. I think we need to use one of the other free options: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tile_servers

@MusikAnimal Which one would you want?

Any! My guess is OSM's official tile server is probably the most reliable, but I really have no idea. Since maps are currently broken on Miraheze, I'm guessing not too many wikis are actively using it. Thus, I suspect we wouldn't meet the "heavy use" that is forbidden in OSM's usage policy.

I do not know how production Kartographer works. I'm guessing you all are using Kartotherian, and the tile server is configured somewhere in there.
