12017-08-17 10:23:09 UTCchillly The name on the board above the shop front is 'Chemist'. I surveyed it and it is still so.

Please don't just armchair this stuff - check first!

I will revert your change.
22017-08-17 10:36:59 UTCMike Baggaley The name is not Chemist, it is P. Rowbotham Dispensing Chemist according to http://www.nhs.uk/Services/pharmacies/Overview/DefaultView.aspx?id=5007.
32017-08-17 11:07:24 UTCchillly The name on the shop says 'Chemist'. I know that because I have been there. You cannot use copyright sources to update the name. I will revert your change and ask the DWG to intervene if you use copyright sources in OSM again.
42017-08-17 11:09:22 UTCMike Baggaley You will find his name is also on the front of the shop.
52017-08-17 11:10:27 UTCchillly Which is why I added the name as the operator.
62017-08-17 11:19:24 UTCMike Baggaley I suggest in the spirit of compromise the name be set to either P Rowbotham Chemist. or just P Rowbotham. The name of the business is clearly not Chemist.
72017-08-17 11:27:22 UTCMike Baggaley I also note that the NHS Choices data is made available under the Open Government Licence - see http://www.nhs.uk/aboutNHSChoices/aboutnhschoices/how-we-perform/Pages/datasets.aspx.

Read the link again. DOWNLOADED files are OGL, the web page you directed me to is copyright. I doubt anyone in the NHS would care, but you were prepared to use a copyright source before you then checked to try to climb out of the hole you just dug.

12017-08-16 19:43:58 UTCchillly Hello,
Someone who was adding population numbers has just been blocked. So is this a way to circumvent being blocked, or are you a genuine new editor?

Is the 2011 census data released under an open licence? Is there information about this?
22017-08-16 20:06:04 UTCDr Mark Hi Chillly,

I had no idea that anyone had been blocked for adding population numbers. I was looking for ways to use OpenStreetMap for Parish Council and local political work, and was trying to find a way to display ward and district boundaries. While doing that I saw that there was no population ...

Mark.
42017-08-16 20:13:18 UTCchillly Thanks for the reply. OGL is fine, but oddly wikipedia isn't always a safe source - we don't know where that came from. Your edit looks fine based on OGL.

The parish boundaries for much of GB have been added, it looks like your village has too. The purple dotted line show the boundary. This has u...
52017-08-16 20:31:50 UTCDr Mark I hadn't thought about displaying OSM on the village website but that's a really good idea.

62017-08-16 20:43:02 UTCchillly The map is created by volunteers. It looks as though no one has put the hours in to draw the houses in your village. A quick look at the aerial imagery tells me they could be traced from there, but it's a long job and not your real intention.

Electoral ward boundaries are not in OSM. I don't thin...
12017-08-14 14:02:54 UTCNoen Hi!
This changeset seems to focus on splitting roads on public_transport=stop_position nodes at the start/end of bus routes. Is this really necessary?
There is a warning for this in the JOSM validator, but i can't find anything on this issue in wiki.openstreetmap, the talk mailing list or the talk...
22017-08-14 14:13:27 UTCPolyglot I started doing this in bus stations, but I'm convinced that it makes a lot of sense at the beginning and end of the routes.
I'm 'traveling' around the world to test the PT_Assistant plugin and also to see how public transport is being mapped in different places.
32017-08-14 15:13:05 UTCchillly So you're not really travelling and seeing what is really there, you're making undiscussed, mass edits from the comfort of your armchair. Do you think this is a good idea and that it is acceptable?
42017-08-14 16:13:51 UTCPolyglot Of course I think it's acceptable or I wouldn'tbe doing it. I agree the changesets are big and it would be better that locals do them.
They take hours of time to work on though. Splitting ways has the consequence of affecting several other route relations, which in turn need to checked too.

12017-08-10 16:52:38 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM,

It is a common beginner's mistake to use the name tag as a description. Does the trig point really have a name 'Orton Hill Triangulation Pillar' on a name board at the location? If not then just don't use the name tag - many things don't have a name.
12017-08-09 18:16:36 UTCchillly Hi,
It's good you removed the coastline tag. I expected you to respond to my comment, then we could try to help.

I'm still not sure what your source is. Would you tell me where did you get this information from please.
12017-08-09 17:34:26 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

I think you have tried to show a proposed new road. You haven't added a comment to the edit which would help make that clearer.

You have added what I think is the new road as coastline. This is very odd, is there any reason for this?

What is the source for this new road lay...
12017-08-01 17:17:55 UTCchillly Hi,
Please add useful changeset comments. '.' really doesn't help understand what and why you are changing.
12017-08-01 17:14:56 UTCchillly Hi,
Adding the designated= xxx is not widely using the UK. It is intended to show a specific legal restriction which often doesn't apply in the UK. In the UK it is more common to use designation=public_footpath or designation-public_bridleway. See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/United_Kingdom_...

You seem to have moved a shop in Tate Modern into the Thames. Did you realise that you were editing real, live data? Would you like any help sorting this out?
22017-07-27 20:59:31 UTCAnita999 Hi chillly, no sorry had no idea what I was doing! umm yes, help would be great! Thanks
32017-07-27 21:00:52 UTCchillly OK, starting out can be hard at first. I'll put the shop back where it was.

If you need help, please ask and I'll try to help.
42017-07-27 21:02:47 UTCAnita999 Thanks so much! I will try not to move buildings into the water next time :)
12017-07-27 20:42:07 UTCchillly I have reverted (undone) this edit. It looks like an experimental edit.
12017-07-24 21:23:27 UTCchillly Looks much better, thanks.
12017-07-24 19:58:29 UTCJamesKingdom Deleted in #50538537
22017-07-24 19:58:58 UTCchillly Why was this deleted so quickly, with no comments?
32017-07-24 20:31:15 UTCchillly I've reinstated the point. I needs moving over the top of the building that business is in, and then it will be a useful addition to the map.

If you have any questions, please ask.
42017-07-24 20:48:03 UTCSafet Mustafaj Hi, sorry I didn't mean to delete any points. thanks for your help. Is the business on the map now?
52017-07-24 20:52:20 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

No problem, you didn't delete the point, a rather too hasty monitor did. You added the business and all looks well, except you added it to the road rather than over the building the business operates from. Please move it to the side of the road to where the business really is.

62017-07-25 17:25:17 UTCJamesKingdom Sorry for my hastiness, and assuming that this place is non-existent, I will take more time to check next time, and not just delete the point without looking.
12017-07-24 20:47:14 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM
You seem to have added the publishers twice. I suggest you delete one of the points.

Feel free to ask any questions.
22017-07-24 21:25:52 UTCe3b45 OSMAND wasnt uploading so tried a couple of times and one must of uploaded without confirming. How do I delete? Can't see an option on firefox for android

12017-07-22 20:51:22 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

Thanks for the detail.

We mark objects either by a single point or (better still) by drawing an area. When we place the single point we try to position it around the middle of the object. Adding a farm to the middle of a road is not how it is usually done. The aerial imagery sh...
22017-07-22 20:58:19 UTCPietroPavese Great, thank you. I'm just starting and I was purely having a look at functions. Do you know if there is a way to add house names to the map?
32017-07-22 21:22:33 UTCchillly To add a house name I would always draw the outline of the house footprint, add a building tag and add the address tags. Don't use the name tag for a house name (common mistake) as that is for, say, a business name in a building. E.g a shop might have a building name as part of the address but the s...
12017-07-21 11:53:08 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM
I think you have got some wires crossed. You have added the details of a pub to a bus stop which is named after the pub nearby. Adding the pub, with its full details, would be good, but the pub details need removing from the bus stop. You can't buy a beer at a bus stop! :-)
12017-07-20 20:24:23 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM
You seem to have changed the building name from 'Victoria House and Dorset House' to 'Mail Boxes Etc.'

This seems an unlikely name for a building. It is a common beginner's mistake to use the name tag for a description.

Would you like me to revert (undo) this change?
12017-07-18 11:26:26 UTCchillly Please add comments to your changes as you save them. It helps everyone else understand what the changes are your are making
12017-07-18 11:22:36 UTCchillly This is a stadium, but it's also a building. It needs the building tag. I'm adding a building tag.
12017-07-12 18:21:32 UTCchillly Just what is this? Is this some kind of incomplete edit, or some advertising spam?
12017-07-12 17:19:43 UTCchillly This is not a university. please stop adding university to all the objects within the area of the university. This is incorrect tagging.

Are you going to remove these?
22017-07-17 15:00:26 UTCSomeoneElse The "water-based hockey pitch university" has been fixed, but there is still a "national throws centre university" at https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/58404006 .
12017-07-12 17:18:32 UTCchillly You really need to remove the univerity from all these buildings. Please stop doing this
12017-07-12 17:17:40 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM
We only tag each object once. Loughborough University is tagged for the site as a whole. Tagging it on each building makes it look as though there are lots of universities.

If you have questions please ask.
12017-07-10 14:12:43 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM, thanks for your edits.
We usually add names in mixed case: Hica Group, though if HICA is capitalised as initials it might be HICA Group.
22017-07-11 19:57:18 UTCStarbeamrainbowlabs Ah, I didn't actually fill out the name here, as I was doing this through the app. I'll certainly correct this though to the right capitalisation. Thanks for the tip!
32017-07-11 19:59:20 UTCStarbeamrainbowlabs A note though: This whole building doesn't actually belong to HICA Group. There's another business in one section building too.
42017-07-11 20:02:17 UTCchillly I would probably divide the building. Effectivly we draw two buildings so two walls exactly overlap and share the nodes. You can see that in Wright Street nearby. Then you can tag each building separately.
12017-07-10 14:16:15 UTCchillly Thanks for the details. The church address is not Hull, but Anlaby Common. The boundary fall where Hull Road turns into Anlaby Road. If you do add an address to any building in Hull we use the city name as Kingston upon Hull so all the buildings are consistently tagged.
22017-07-11 20:00:47 UTCStarbeamrainbowlabs Ah ok, sure! I've updated that now.

22017-07-10 13:33:07 UTCchillly The addr:city tag is a bit confusing for new starters sometimes. It doesn't just mean city, if the address is a town or village then that goes in the city tag. I'm not sure what the place is, so I left it unchanged.
12017-07-09 14:18:36 UTCchillly Thanks for your latest edits.
You are using the name tag as a description, for example 'Lowfield Lane to A63'. We only use the name tag for signed names. The fact that it link Lowfield Lane and the A63 is clear from the geometry. The 'South Hunsley Footpath (Students Only)' is probably best disting...

Rather than removing a footpath or track, you could add access tags to make it a private footpath or track. The fact the path exists is a good reason to have it on OSM. Someone will see it is missing and add it again. If you mark it as private anyone seeing the map will see the path ...

12017-06-23 14:23:02 UTCtrigpoint Hi Martin, is https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/502622232 really a park?
It looks a very odd place for a park, and aerial imagery suggests it isn't.
Also it is bad practice to join areas such as this to the centreline of roads. The area will end at the edge and should be mapped as such.

22017-06-23 15:34:17 UTCMartin Wynne Hi Phil,
I use "park" for any public green space with trees or shrubs, because there doesn't seem to be any other designation available. I have noticed the same used in lots of other places on OSM. "Grass" is ok for plain grass, but this clearly isn't that - see: https://goo.gl...
32017-06-23 17:02:11 UTCchillly mapping landuse boundaries to the centre lines of roads is not good practice. Your explanation sounds good, but in practice we don't do it.

42017-06-23 17:12:05 UTCEdLoach Personally I'd have mapped it as an area of (mostly) grass and perhaps added an occasional natural=tree node (similarly when I mark an area as wood or forest I don't usually map holes for every clearing in the trees).

12017-06-22 14:22:15 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM. Thanks for the edit.

I have a couple of comments. It would be usual to use building=house when you know it's a house. Postcodes have a space in them: HU17 7EN. Postcodes are especially useful for routing and satnavs, so getting the format right helps.

If you have any questions ...
22017-06-22 15:09:52 UTCchillly Looking at this again, Is Church Road in Beverley or Molescroft? If it is Molescroft then the addr:city should be Molescroft. The term 'city' is a bit confusing. It gets used for any place, so the houses in a village would get addr:city set to the village name.
32017-06-22 16:56:55 UTCSaidtheguru It sounds like i should put Molescroft, when we moved i tried to determine the correct postal address and that is Beverley, HU17 7EN
42017-06-22 17:01:08 UTCchillly The Royal Mail's view of addresses can be very obscure and certainly only one company's version of things. I'd use Molescroft.

22017-06-04 15:32:51 UTCChristopherRowland Falconers is a residential house.
32017-06-04 15:53:07 UTCchillly Then that tag needs adding. Adding a point with details is useful, drawing the area of buildings and adding the tags to the whole area is much better. With a building set back from the road there maybe a service road or driveway to show how one would access the place too.
12017-06-04 15:50:35 UTCchillly Thanks for trying to sort this out, it is not quite right. You have drawn an area for the house, but you have added the tags to just one of the corners of the house, rather than the whole area of the house. It also needs a tag to say what it is, in this case building=house would be best I think.
12017-06-04 11:52:36 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM. Thanks for the detail.

12017-06-04 11:58:23 UTCchillly You might like to draw the outline of buildings like this. Tag it as building=house and you can add address details from there. A cottage would use the housename tag to specify its name, not the name tag. The name tag is then free if a business is run there too.

Please ak if you need more info.

12017-05-30 16:00:39 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM
Thanks for the detail. It helps a lot to know how the path is surfaced, we use the surface tag to show that. If the path is a public right of way you might like to add designation=public_footpath (or public_bridleway)

12017-05-30 15:56:58 UTCchillly Buildings are best drawn as an area, not a point. If you want to make it clear that it is part of the school (it is within the grounds but an extra tag might help) you can use the tag building=school.

12017-05-27 18:59:10 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM
OSM is not a business directory, so your advert in the description tag is, IMHO, inappropriate.

You have added many useful tags, but a key one is missing. There is no tag to describe the object you have mapped. Is it an office, a shop ... ?
12017-05-27 12:49:01 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM
You have added an area and given it a name, but not described what it is. The description tag is really only a form or comment. If Tilmore is a suburb there is a place=suburb tab, but it looks a bit small for that so I would use place=neighbourhood.

22017-05-20 15:53:55 UTCchillly Looking again, I suspect you want to add one unit that is just part of the building. That is a bit harder than just dragging the bigger building around. If you need any help, I'll try.
12017-05-19 18:42:09 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM
If you know the road names are wrong, use the editor to change the name. Just have a go. If you make a mistake don't worry, it can be sorted out.

You have drawn a rough outline of a building but tagged it as landuse=residential. If it's a building you could tag it as a building (building=yes is a start). If it is some kind of residential home there are tagging schemes to describe this. e.g. https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wik...
12017-05-16 14:46:30 UTCchillly Hi,
Is the area you marked a garden or is it allotments. I see you've tagged it as a garden but your comment indicates it to be an allotment area. Is it an extension to the existing allotments?
Cheers
22017-05-16 17:44:18 UTCDavid Beaver Hi,
Sorry for the confusion.
It's a community garden on the council allotment site.

You can add a point for each address and add addressing for each one. See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Addresses for more info.
52017-05-15 17:49:21 UTCKDDA Amazingly that is not surprising, as Google Maps is very wrong in a lot of areas!

The carpark node you added duplicates the area already there. You added the name 'test' so It won't matter to you that I'm going to remove it.

I hope you add some real stuff in the future.

12017-05-15 14:03:27 UTCchillly Hi,
You have tagged the Walesbymoor Trail as a track. That means it is wide enough for a four-wheeled vehicle, yet you have tagged the width as 0.5m. I suggest you want to use highway=path instead. The extra (useful) tags makes it clear what to expect.
You haven't added any access tags. Is it a p...
12017-05-15 10:23:54 UTCchillly Hi,
If the designation is public bridleway, then I suggest the highway tag should be highway=bridleway too
12017-05-14 16:44:21 UTCchillly I'm going to sound very picky, but a meadow in the UK is a very specific thing, with grass left to harvest for hay, allowing wild flowers to flourish then later, some animal grazing. This could be a meadow, or maybe grassland.
22017-05-14 16:52:55 UTCMithos1 Hi. I wasn't sure about this one. It's definitely not used to create hay, but the developers added and over time there is now significant amounts of different Flora and Fauna that grow and live here, so Grassland seemed too basic. However I can change it if you think that would be best?
32017-05-14 16:57:05 UTCchillly I leave it to you (I don't know the area). If there's no hay some would say it's not a meadow, but grass with wild flowers would sway it for others. You could add a note (note=x) to explain your choice for the next mapper.

Happy to help (If I have :-) )
12017-05-14 15:59:02 UTCchillly Again, are you sure about the name? It is not unusual for things to not have a name.
22017-05-14 16:13:38 UTCMithos1 Thanks for the help Chilly. The residential on the estate call it that, but there are no official signs etc. Thanks
32017-05-14 16:40:39 UTCchillly There is a 'local name' tag (loc_name=x) if that helps.
12017-05-14 16:00:28 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

It is very unusual to have an edit that spans the world. I would always break each edit up into much smaller locations.

22017-05-15 03:35:01 UTCQwertii Maps.me doesn't let you split up edits as far as I can tell. It just uploads once you stop adding things for a bit.
12017-05-14 15:58:03 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM
Thanks for the detail.

We only use the name tag for names from a sign or a name board. We don't use it as a description (it's a common beginner's mistake).

If it is a balancing pond we do have a separate tag for that (landuse=basin, basin=detention for example.)

You seem to have changed a wood to be a park. Are you sure?
22017-05-12 20:37:53 UTCAshenskyy Yes. Has grass areas, trees, swings, roundabout, slide and other children climbing frames. There for a park and not a wood in my opinion.

12017-05-12 19:24:26 UTCchillly Hi,
Thanks for this detail, everything is useful. You have made a very common beginner's mistake. You have added a description as the name tag. We only ever use names in the name tag, usually from a name board or a sign. A phone box will not have a name and certainly not 'Phone box'

You have converted a grassland to a park. When I look at the aerial imagery, including some new imagery, it shows as buildings. Are you sure that's a park?

The new park you added extends out onto the surrounding roads. Are you sure that is right?
12017-05-11 20:45:29 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM. Thanks for the detail. Drawing building outlines is better than just a point, though a point is better than nothing.

I think I would have drawn the whole area as the park, not in two parts. You can still draw the footpath through the park.

HTH
12017-05-11 15:09:54 UTCchillly This needs an object type to describe it. Is it a monument perhaps?
12017-05-11 14:55:26 UTCchillly Rather than just a point I like to draw the area and then tag that as sport=tennis. Does the place have a name? name=x
12017-05-11 14:54:14 UTCchillly A barbers needs a shop tag so the software knows what kind of an object it is. shop=hairdresser, plus the name tag should do it. You can extras such ass address and phone number tags if you know that info too.
12017-05-11 14:52:57 UTCchillly The building=no tag (from a previous editor) might cause problems. I would describe this as each pitch for each sport (tennis still needs a pitch tag with a sport=tennis) I would possibly add the name to the building where people enter.
12017-05-11 14:50:13 UTCchillly You have added an area, over the top of an existing wood. There are no tags to dewcribe what it is, what did you have in mind here?

You have added a couple of living streets in Pocklington. These are vanishingly rare in the UK and as far as I know the East Riding council have not created any. It is usual to just use highway=residential in the UK, with surface, sidewalk and maxspeed tags to add more detail.

22017-04-17 12:13:33 UTCDerick Rethans Hi, and welcome to OpenStreetMap. I see you're a new mapper (5 edits), and you've decided to change town/suburb classfications around London. This is a controversial move, and should have been discussed on the talk-gb and talk-gb-london mailinglist first.

32017-04-16 16:24:52 UTCMasterThomasG (Small playground that is)
42017-04-16 16:27:19 UTCchillly I would draw an area that outlines the playground. We have a tag, leisure=playground to mark that too. By being separate you can add it's own tags, e.g. name.
52017-04-16 16:31:13 UTCMasterThomasG On my phone rn I'll sort it out when I get back to my pc 😀. I added that part as a park prior need to go there at some point to see if it has a specific name😀

I would expect that a green space given mostly to sports pitches would be a recreation ground not a park. What do you think?
22017-04-16 16:16:53 UTCMasterThomasG This area is called Warner's Bridge park, like the name suggests it's a park granted living close it may seem's it's also a recreational ground but it's called a park so I added it as a park. Thanks for the comment hope for a reply.😀
32017-04-16 16:20:32 UTCchillly In OSM terms any green space that is mostly laid out with sports pitches is a recreation ground. It is a fine line. The name suggests the ambiguity. Looking again I would make it a rec, but it's not my local area.

52017-04-14 13:54:05 UTCchillly No, in English it is a piece of public land used for sports and games. The tagged space is a piece of rough ground that could not support sports and games. That may be a park, I suspect it is just grassland, it's certainly doesn't look well kept for a park.
12017-04-14 13:08:45 UTCchillly You have added the building of church, but you have not matched the actual building, you may have matched the area around the church, but that's not the building which is what you have tagged. How do you want to sort this out?
22017-04-14 13:16:15 UTCJordan Steeles-Turner I suppose making the area slightly smaller to fit around the building would work.
32017-04-14 13:18:32 UTCchillly Yes, that would be good. Try to match the footprint, the aerial images are often slanted from the camera angle. Churches (not rectangular and not an even height) can be awkward

22017-04-13 22:31:20 UTCkaritotp Hi Chillly,
I dont know exactly what is this one, also I deleted it because the area does not match with the satellite imagery.
I saw that other edits have also been flagged by community - https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/47639516

12017-04-10 19:49:47 UTCchillly You seem to have tried to outline the area of a hospital. That is a better way to describe it than the single existing point.

You have added a hotel, with what looks like an English name, but you have tagged the name as the name in spanish (name:es rather than name) It means the name will not appear unless the tag is changed.

Thanks for the extra detail.

You have drawn around the outline of a building. It is more usual to tag it as a building (building=yes). The area is already a commercial landuse, so your newly drawn building won't show up very well as it stands

12017-04-07 14:26:13 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

You don't need to add oneway=no, that is the default. You only need to add the oneway tag if it is 'yes' for a one way street.
12017-04-07 11:41:10 UTCchillly You have added an area and tagged it as a place of worship. That should only be the building. If the area around is a grave yard there is a tag for that. The address details etc all belong on the building.
12017-04-07 11:38:58 UTCchillly We usually don't add footways besides roads, we usually add sidewalk tags to the road. You have also added highway=crossing to a section of footway parallel to the road. Highway crossing is used on a point or short section of path where it crosses a road, such as a pedestrian crossing.

22017-04-04 21:53:04 UTCtrigpoint The village was already mapped as Llanddew, which was correct according to OS OpenData, my view is that this maps.me edit is probably a personal marker should be reverted, it altered an existing object.

Thanks for the detail. It needs a little change to be more useful.
You have added a point with only a name. OSM needs a tag to know what the object is and so how to display it. I would suggest you need to add amenity=clinic as well as the name

22017-03-18 21:00:55 UTCMartin Hügi Yes, it is the site of some houses that were abandon when the occupant died of Cholera several hundred years ago. At least so I am reliably informed by the landowner, Major Ted Barclay. There is actually a small pond at the NE corner that I could add in. I do the woodland management plans for the es...
32017-03-18 21:04:41 UTCchillly OK, interesting.

The wood has a 'hole' in it for the pond. So it needs a similar treatment as the other lake, only this time the wood is the 'outer' and the pond is the 'inner'. Draw the pond then select both the wood and the pond and merge them from the menu.
42017-03-18 21:11:11 UTCMartin Hügi Ok will give that a go, thanks

62017-03-18 21:49:19 UTCchillly You added the pond OK, but it is not in a 'hole' in the wood. As I said before, multipolygon editing is not as straightforward as simple editing.

In the online editor you are using you select both the wood and the pond (use shift click to select the second item). Then the ring menu has a plus (+) sign which is merge. Click that. That merges the two polygons as a multipolygon, thus making the pond into a hole in the wood. I...

42017-03-18 21:40:49 UTCMartin Hügi So do you need proof of what people are putting on OSM, how does it work. Do you do a certain amount of background checking to ensure it is not nonsense? Or does it really on the collective weight of many people to find and correct errors?

12017-03-18 20:40:28 UTCchillly Hi,
You would be better to space the postcode as normal, SG9 0HF. If some uses the map data to search for a place, using postcodes is common, such as in a sat-nav. Badly spaced postcodes don't work
22017-03-18 20:44:46 UTCMartin Hügi Ok, what's normal? without the space then? I normally put a space, but then I accept I am not a SatNav. At least not knowingly.
32017-03-18 20:48:12 UTCchillly You have entered it without a space. It would normally have a space before the last three digits. I know more about postcodes than is good for me, I maintain the UK postcode layer for OSM. http://codepoint.raggedred.net
42017-03-18 20:56:44 UTCMartin Hügi You are quite right. I had to check by starting to add another building. That's quite unusual for me, it was a typo. I normally put a space in, hence my first comment. I ocd-hate postcodes without spaces

12017-03-13 17:27:14 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM.

The area you have added as a meadow is not one. A meadow is a very special type of land in the UK. It was already marked as farmland which looks correct to me.

I propose to revert (delete) this edit, what do you think?
12017-03-13 16:30:35 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

The 'park' you have added is not a park in OSM terms. It is landuse=farmland. I doubt it is called "Farmer's Field". You have drawn it over the top of a number of houses.

I will revert (delete) this edit.
12017-03-13 16:03:56 UTCchillly This looks like a private garden. I will revert (delete) this edit.
12017-03-13 16:02:58 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

Parks are best added as an area not just a point.
12017-03-09 21:01:35 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

Looking at the park, I wonder if recreation ground might be better? The individual pitches can be mapped too if you want (leisure=pitch, sport=xxx) Does the park / rec have a name?
22017-03-13 15:41:29 UTClostmike Since Zopes is a Pokemon go player I think any added parks should be regarded as suspect.

See http://www.openstreetmap.org/message/read/625774
32017-03-13 15:43:37 UTCchillly Only lost mike can read that message. Not all Pokémon players' work is poor quality.
42017-03-13 15:50:08 UTClostmike I agree. I was probably a little too harsh in my comment.
52017-03-13 16:13:43 UTCZopps I was entirely transparent mike. I have not and will not be adding any false data. True I am adding to experiment with the notion that osm data is used to govern the spawn of pokemon. But I am only adding real location data, which in turn furthers osm as a by product :)
62017-03-13 21:32:13 UTClostmike I agree. I apologise.
12017-03-12 15:22:46 UTCchillly Adding a pitch is a good idea. We usually draw the whole area like you have done and describe that as, say, a recreation ground. That can carry a name and maybe opening times. Then draw the outline of the pitch more precisely and only tag that as pitch and sport.

Hope that helps
12017-03-12 15:17:47 UTCchillly Added a park that covers the river really isn't the way to do it. You need to be more fine detailed than that.
12017-03-12 14:57:00 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

You have added an area but you haven't tagged it as anything. OSM needs to know what you are adding in order to make use of it.

The second area looks a bit of a doodle. Do you need any help with this?
12017-03-11 12:57:35 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

Looking at the aerial imagery, you seem to have a drawn a park over the top of some buildings. Have the buildings been demolished recently? Have you made a mistake? Do you need any help with this?
12017-03-10 21:46:43 UTCchillly Have these buildings really been destroyed or is this an effort to attract Pokémon?

I will revert this edit.

Just kidding. Sorry for wasting your time. A nice site / idea this whole community mapping thing is though :)
32017-03-10 23:05:07 UTCchillly It will be even better if you add some of your local knowledge too :-)

You Pokemon guys can help, you go out and about, even if you only add a little of what you see here and there it all helps.

Enjoy.

parks are better drawn as an area rather than a point.

This stuff looks real. You might like to click the icon that makes the houses have right angles. Most houses have squared off corners.

Your small park has a name that looks like a description. We only use names that can be verified, so names on name boards for example.
12017-03-09 22:00:10 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

From the aerial imagery your park is someone's garden.

You seem to have added Cairntows park over the top of the existing Cairntows Park. I will remove your extra park. Pokémon will still recognise the old park :-)

You seem to have changes a children's playground into a park. A park is an area not a point ( a playground is often an area too).

We welcome edits from everyone, but they need to be real things, in the right place and correctly described.
12017-03-09 18:00:04 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

We draw parks as areas, not points. It is usual to draw roads in first as part of a new development. It you don't have a GPS (or a phone with a GPS in it) maybe a note would be best saying there is a new development so someone else can follow it up later.
12017-03-09 15:11:27 UTCchillly Reverted
12017-03-09 15:10:52 UTCchillly I have reverted this and your second edit. Both involved dragging points to new places. You can create new points and lines rather than drag stuff around.

Thanks for the detail. It looks as though you added the postcode as the house number. Adding the postcode correctly makes is easier to find
12017-03-03 23:11:40 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

The restaurant looks rather close to the road. Shouldn't it be where the buildings are? Postcodes are very useful, but they need to be correctly formed, so they need a single space in the right place in the middle

HTH
12017-03-03 23:09:52 UTCchillly Again you need to add tags to describe what you have added. In OSM a ginnel is highway=service + service=alley.
12017-03-03 23:08:39 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

You have added a line with a name which looks like a description. We reserve the name tag for real names, usually from a sign. If the path is a path that isn't just informal, you need to add a tag to describe what it is, probably highway=footway.

You have added a farm in the middle of a road. I expect that a farm will on the land at one side of the road. We are very fussy about copyright, taking stuff from a web site without permission is not the best.

42017-02-28 15:29:01 UTCchillly Just add what you feel you want to. More detail is good but if you make a mistake it can always be changed later. Any buildings you want to add create a lot of context for other features.

You seem to have tagged the end of a road as Black Cat Motorcycles. I suspect that business isn't on the road, but in one of the buildings around the road. You might like to add a point to where the business really is and add the business details to that.

HTH
12017-02-25 14:34:44 UTCchillly I suggest that the footway joins Delamere road, so it should join the road by sharing a point on it. This allows router software to suggest a walking route using your new path.

HTH
12017-02-25 14:32:52 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM
We generally don't add footpaths beside roads as separate entities. We use the sidewalk tag on the road to describe them instead.
12017-02-24 20:31:09 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

The landuse=farm tagging you have removed is rather out of date because it was ambiguous. We now use landuse=farmland for example on fields, both arable and pasture. We use landuse=farmyard for the area around farm buildings.

12017-02-23 20:27:46 UTCchillly The line you have draw is intended to be a footpath, from your edit comment. You need to add tags to describe it - probably highway=footway. Footpaths are connected to other routes, such as the roads. This allows routers to describe routes using the footpath.

Meadows in the UK are very special habitat that is very carefully grazed, some hay is grown and mown all to encourage wild flowers. If your meadows fit that, great, but if not you might like lanude=grassland, or landuse=farmland instead. Meadow is overused in OSM.

HTH
12017-01-31 14:06:38 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

I see you have added a pedestrian road in a park. This is not usual. In the UK we use pedestrian to show a pedestrian area in an urban location, such as a shopping area. I think highway=footway would be better.

I think you have tried to add multiple conflicting tags to a single area. You can only have 1 landuse tag or one leisure tag on each area. If there is a recreation ground with pitches on it, you nee to draw the pitched separately inside the rec, so you can tag them.

Its a playground/kids park that is fenced off. I wasn't 100% "park" was the right thing to class it as but it is different to the rest of the surrounding area. (hope that makes sense!)

I see you have tried to add a footpath beside a road. highway=pedestrian (that you have added) is not right. A pedestrian road is a road converted from car use to pedestrian use in, say, a shopping area. If you want a footpath beside the road use sidewalk tags for the road. This a...

The church you have traced is a good thing to add. The tip for tracing when the photo is not directly above is to expect te building to be right-angled corners and imaging the floor plan even where you can't see it.

You have changed stuff to be parks that I might use other tags for. E.g. Hornley Harriers looks like a recreation ground, not a park. Hepworth Recreation ground is a recreation ground not a park.

Thanks for the detail. I wonder why you added Swanspool Gardens in two parts?

If they really are gardens and not a park you can tag it as leisure=garden with access tags such as access=public.

If you have questions please feel free to ask
12017-01-26 21:04:30 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM.
Please don't add bits and bobs all over the world in one go. Looking at the paths you have added I question if they are real or just wandering routes you have taken. We only add stuff that someone else would be able to see if they visited.

You have added a highway pedestrian. This is normally a a road for cars that has been converted to a pedestrian road in, say, a town. I would use highway=footway, a normal footpath.

If you have questions, please feel free to ask.

52017-01-26 21:34:12 UTCGinaroZ Hi, I've fixed the paths that you added beside Lyon Court - I've connected them to the road so that routing software can direct users along them.
I also added a couple of bowling greens that I saw - perhaps you could add the pavilion building and club name if you know it?
12017-01-26 20:57:50 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM
You seem to have added a footpath over the top of a road. We usually do not add footpaths like that. If a road has a path next to it we add sidewalk tags to the road. This makes phone and satnav routers for pedestrians work better.

If you need any help sorting this out please ask.

The smaller pond you have drawn has an island in it. This is awkward for beginners to understand, we create an area with a hole (the island) in it. I'll create that so you have a reference for the future.
