whathappened15 (Ed) is currently a Rank 6 USA Local Champ with over 275k map edits, as well as TN SM and SAT MSM. Based in East Tennessee, he focuses his editing primarily within the SAT region, where he works to assist and support developing editors throughout the region, primarily with informal mentoring. His travels occasionally take him north into GLR (primarily Ohio), west into SCR (primarily Mississippi and Arkansas), and south into SER (primarily Georgia), where he assists with completing BOTG requests and correcting other mapping issues and opportunities for improvement observed, in consultation and coordination with local editors. Since his CM promotion, he assists nationwide with closures, editor requests, and other activities.

His interests going forward remain predominantly within the SAT and surrounding regions, improving the app's user experience through better mapping, while working at a national level with PNH, raids, and other special projects.
