12017-11-15 22:31:18 UTCMarion Barry Hi there, I just noticed this issue. it looks like you moved an entire town and it doesn't match up with imagery or OSM GPS traces, can you explain more about the edit? Thanks
22018-05-20 12:29:11 UTCFreedSky He shifted all the data
12018-02-02 10:02:10 UTCMateusz Konieczny Can you look at ? Why you changed admin level to 7?

In future, please describe your edits.
22018-02-09 16:08:11 UTCFreedSky ???? is 3
32018-02-09 16:28:33 UTCMateusz Konieczny Sorrry, I was supposed to ask why you changed admin level from 7 to 3.
42018-05-05 08:39:02 UTCFreedSky Because this is the actual control line between the two countries
52018-05-05 08:42:37 UTCMateusz Konieczny is not a line, it is an area - 50 km in North-South direction, 10 to 30 km in East-West.

wikipedia tag links to that is about a village with 78 inhabitants - is it really spa...
62018-05-10 03:18:56 UTCFreedSky My mother tongue is not English and I cannot communicate smoothly in English. Can you simply retell your question?
72018-05-10 05:20:54 UTCMateusz Konieczny "Because this is the actual control line between the two countries" - so why is an area rather than a line?
82018-05-10 05:29:25 UTCFreedSky Because of this simplicity, the disputed area has partial control between the two countries, so it is convenient to use one area and it can be easily posted on Wikipedia.

In addition, the change from 7 to 3 is hopefully highlighted. After all, this area does not want overwhelming control in south...
12017-10-31 08:38:30 UTCSomeoneElse Hello FreedSky,
Please use changeset comments for your edits explaining what you're changing and what the source is. Changes to national borders, especially where there are multiple claims, should be clearer so that all relevant parties have a cha...
22017-10-31 08:39:02 UTCSomeoneElse 你好FreedSky,说明您正在改变的内容以及来源是什么。 对国界的变化,特别是多方面的要求应该更清楚,所有有关方面都有机会看看和评论所做的改变。
32018-02-09 16:11:07 UTCFreedSky I made some revisions based on the boundary data and actual satellite imagery. There are some discrepancies in the frontier. Of course, my guess may be wrong, but I try my best to be neutral. My amendment to this large boundary Is based on this logic, so nothing to say, I do not like to write a reas...
42018-02-09 16:11:46 UTCFreedSky The source is based on the data from China's official mapping bureau, and their boundary data can be consulted for comparison.
52018-02-09 17:03:28 UTCSomeoneElse There are two potential issues with that:
1) What's the licences associated with "data from China's official mapping bureau"? Is it compatible with OpenStreetMap?
2) Where this impacts the boundaries of other states there could be problems. A number of states in this region have overla...
62018-05-05 08:34:19 UTCFreedSky
My modification of the boundary is a feeling that some places are inconsistent with actual control. For example, some ravines are clearly in one of the countries and there are roads leading to them. If you don't think this is acceptable, you can discuss or return my editor.
72018-05-05 08:35:33 UTCFreedSky I also understand the specific conditions of the disputed areas between the two countries. Please rest assured that I will not arbitrarily modify the actual control boundary. As a user editing in the South China Sea, I know how tortured the boundary is.
82018-05-05 08:39:17 UTCSomeoneElse Thanks for the detailed explanation. Sometimes it might make sense to add something like that to your own changesets (because the changeset comment is limited to 256 characters) to explain the reasoning behind it.
92018-05-10 03:15:03 UTCFreedSky I also know that you are worried that, in fact, you can find that my series of boundary editors basically does not involve the disputed areas. It is just some of the borders identified by the existing two countries. The data used before OSM may be a bit error.

22018-04-25 07:19:02 UTCkent1D Ok I'm sorry.

Is there a link on where we can find useful informations about that?

I was using the comment on Josm as aquired... it says city is more than 100.000 and town between 10.000 and 100.000

I see you already changed back lots of them, did you do all of them?\...
32018-04-25 09:47:51 UTCFreedSky You can open Wikipedia for more comprehensive information.

Specific use please refer to

The Chinese community is relatively closed, and mappers who are interested in other regions of China are less likely to get information.

12018-02-02 05:52:51 UTCFreedSky This sea area is actually controlled by China. There is no dispute whether it is one thing or the other. Actual control is one thing.
22018-02-02 13:33:53 UTCgiovand Hi @FreedSky - thanks for your comments. This area, as several others in South China Sea, may be controlled by China, but sovereignty is claimed by other countries as well. I would suggest keeping all these features in OSM free of any relation to countries until an official resolution is achieved. I...
32018-02-02 15:47:18 UTCFreedSky I disagree with the fact that the prime minister can basically confirm the actual control of China's South China Sea islands through references to wikipedia. For example, Huangyan Island is a stable stop for military vessels in Beijing and no other state forces can enter, and this is from 2012 to th...
42018-02-02 16:07:11 UTCgiovand Control does not mean that it's not disputed. Some areas have been disputed for a long time and will probably be forever. See this example:
52018-02-02 16:10:31 UTCFreedSky However, it is enough to comply with a stable control. Nothing in the world is immutable. It is a fact that China has stabilized control of Huangyan Island since 2012, and if you say the ownership change happened on the island a few days ago We may need to wait and see a few months no problem, but t...

72018-02-02 16:17:44 UTCFreedSky Unless tomorrow there is an incident in Huangyan Island, the ownership may change; I know Huangyan Island unlike China's other controlled islands in the South China Sea have built artificial islands, so regardless of both the political and military forces, but simply to consider one only by For a lo...
12018-02-02 16:06:17 UTCFreedSky This is a district-level unit in China's administrative divisions, including the Xisha Islands, which are actually under the control of China, and the Nansha Islands as a whole is not the same concept. Please do not arbitrarily modify it.

22017-10-02 09:38:41 UTCAustin Zhu Part of your changeset will be reverted, please comply with the tagging guidelines(
32017-10-02 14:54:45 UTCjamesks Please let me know what the issue is. I am aligning tagging across the entire country - trying to fix regional and local inconstistances, and tagging according things that have no longer exist (e.g. old 'trunk' roads from the 1980s)
42017-10-02 15:08:29 UTCAustin Zhu It's G316. It should be tagged as trunk instead of primary.>_<
52017-10-02 15:15:50 UTCjamesks I just checked, since it is an old trunk road, almost the entire road is 'primary'. the 'Trunk' tag is used mainly for elevated roads in cities, and a few of the old 'G' network that have been upgraded.
62017-10-03 16:37:45 UTCAustin Zhu If it is currently a member of the G-network, then it should be tagged with trunk.
72017-10-04 09:38:05 UTCjamesks Almost none of the old G roads in China are tagged "trunk" - trunk is used for other things. Almost all the old network is replaced by the new G Expressways.
82017-10-04 12:58:08 UTCAustin Zhu I don't think so. All G-network roads should be tagged trunk, Chinese contributors have agreed on that. And they are not replaced. The expressways are new G roads with higher construction standards. There's nothing called old network. Trunk is mainly used for national road system (all G-nnn roads) a...
92017-10-04 15:47:51 UTCjamesks Should we label all the all G roads as part of the trunk network, even if they run alongside a much newer more important 'primary' route?
Maybe there should be an automatic changing of all G roads to 'trunk' tagging - there must be 10s of thousands, or does it need checking on the ground to see wh...
102017-10-04 18:21:00 UTCAustin Zhu My answer is yes. I don't know which primary route you are referring to, if that primary route connects several provinces, then I have to reconsider that issue. Currently, Freedsky and I am doing this changing manually ( because some G-routes have been diverted to newer roads). We hope foreigners ca...
112017-10-05 08:38:09 UTCjamesks I understand, I have been tagging like in Germany and France, where when they built the expressways, the old national trunk routes were left with the same numbering system, but are often not developed, so are no longer the backbone of the national network, nor necessarily funded by central governmen...
12016-09-14 16:57:00 UTCff5722 Is this correct?

Maybe there is a more detailed source to smoothen these bends.

12016-07-09 05:35:41 UTCFTA Hi, can you provide some context for adding to the Sansha City relation as part of its administrative region? What does this claim stem from?
22017-09-23 16:24:39 UTCFreedSky Sorry, maybe this part should not add borders.
12017-03-24 11:29:22 UTCPlaneMad Thanks for your change, you can also add the wikipedia article for a place, like `wikipedia=en:Khorgas`

12017-07-20 15:55:56 UTCAustin Zhu hey, overrun is a part of the runway!
22017-07-20 19:28:34 UTC4b696d No it is not. Here is my proof:
1. These runways have a length of 3800 m wich is the length without the blast pads. Lengh with blast pads is 4000m ->
2. Quote from wikipedia: The runway thresholds are markings across the runway...
32017-07-21 16:01:26 UTCAustin Zhu Yes, the runway is 3800m in length, but that's for normal use. You should also include its feature for emergency use, which is the overrun. And most importantly, Wikipedia mentions that blast pad is a section of a runway, so it definitely belongs to a runway. The "runway" which you referre...
42017-07-21 16:28:39 UTCAustin Zhu Plus, for visual convenience, I think it's more easier to identify the gray area if it is a little bit stretched out. Otherwise it may seems to mix with the gray taxiway although they differ in width when displayed. And visual convenience is crucial for a map, I think.
52017-07-21 16:49:49 UTC4b696d Please keep in mind that we are not supposed to map for the renderer. That means that we shall not map something to make it look better on a certain map.
When there is no tag for a certain feature then you should not use a different one just to make it show up on a map.
I have had a look at hundre...
62017-07-21 17:34:49 UTCAustin Zhu I have read several books about airport design and construction. None of them excludes the blast pad from a whole runway. I did not mean that I'm mapping for the rendering, I mean it is convenient for people who use the map. I acknowledge some of your points, but not all.
72017-07-21 17:37:37 UTCFreedSky Well, that's empirical. You should follow the definition. What he said makes sense.
82017-07-21 17:44:47 UTCAustin Zhu Yeah, I can also say that I have viewed many airports in OSM, but only some of them follow the definition. So I don't think it's persuasive.
92017-07-21 17:58:03 UTC4b696d @FreedSky: I don't know to whom you are referring to as "you" and "he" and I don't think that "the definition" exists.
@Austin Zhu: If you have read a lot of books then you certainly know more about this topic than I do, I only got my info from Wikipedia. I still would...
102017-07-21 18:14:26 UTCAustin Zhu That's OK. I will not bother your fix a lot. I only care about airports modified precisely by myself(RJTT, RJAA, RJGG, RJBB, RJOO, etc.), and obviously you can still edit in a way you prefer. Thanks for your suggestions. :-)
12017-07-10 09:20:52 UTCFreedSky 你别吧行政边界连起来 这种做法直接导致一大堆问题
12017-06-29 10:15:02 UTCSpanholz You created a lot of forests here. That doesn't look correct compared with the satellite imagery. Was this an import?
22017-06-29 17:29:50 UTCFreedSky I checked, after all, the amount may be more or less there may be some problems, but I do not recommend to repair, after all, is a huge project is not much significance, the overall reference significance.
12017-04-26 19:04:12 UTCsamely you traced a road that doesn't match with the imagery, can you check it?

42016-12-07 02:43:05 UTCFTA Hi l8ghtofheaven, generally in OpenStreetMap we follow a policy of representing de facto borders in the case of the South China Sea because of the disputes that are occurring by multiple countries.
