12017-03-22 18:22:26 UTCtrigpoint Hi, you seem to be using a strange imagery URL. What were you copying and do wehave explicit permission to use that imformation?
22017-03-22 21:04:51 UTCjesus_army Information came from a GPX trace rather than the map tile but I will remove that way and re-edit for clarity
12017-03-21 22:00:07 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
In OSM we map what exists on the ground, you have for some bizarre reason changed the Chertsey town node to a hospital. This sort of edit breaks the map for other users and will be reverted.
22017-03-21 22:44:39 UTCtrigpoint Reverted
12017-03-21 22:03:44 UTCtrigpoint The hosital is already mapped, for some reason you have created a duplicate node.
12017-03-21 18:33:37 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. You seem to have changed a place node to a park, the park is already mapped and the name you added looks very unlikely. I have put this back to the place node
12017-03-20 17:55:23 UTCtrigpoint HI, I am not convinced there is a legal no-U turn restriction here. I have never seen any signage and if there was one, how would I get into Knighton Junction Lane or the New Road Inn?
However I have spotted that Welford Road is incorrectly mapped as a single carriageway so I will fix that.
22017-03-20 18:36:47 UTCCebderby Hi, If turning right from the southbound Welford Rd into Knighton Jnct Ln or the pub is ok then this new turn restriction can't remain. The specific routing problem was in (expecting to) turn right from Victoria Park Rd to northbound Welford Rd - OsmAnd app's router gives left turn then U-turn whic...
32017-03-20 21:45:59 UTCtrigpoint Hi, I have looked at this on OSMand and it has got a very serious routing issue. Both OSRM and mapzen work perfectly here.
Maybe it should be reported to OSMand?

42017-03-20 22:04:31 UTCCebderby I suspect it is over-penalising a route from a secondary to a primary road via a minor way, even though it seems short and obvious. Trying with 'fuel efficient' route option (ie. short route) OsmAnd gets the right turn, it's only the 'fastest' route with the problem. For now, I've removed the no-U...
52017-03-20 22:36:51 UTCtrigpoint I agree the cross ways should be secondary, and I would consider Putney Road/Commercial Square to be tertiary. But a router should cope with the mapping as is, classifications are an indication of importance rather than speed, especially when they are tagged as 30 mph.

I am working through Mapill...
12017-03-20 19:22:10 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
It looks like you were adding a hedge. They are tagged as barrier=hedge.
Give me a shout if you need any help.
12017-03-19 16:48:16 UTCwill_p Hi, what does 'RA surveys' mean? The abbreviation isn't clear to me.
22017-03-20 17:41:47 UTCtrigpoint My guess, and knowing Stan as I do. it would be Ramblers Association
12017-03-19 16:25:44 UTCtrigpoint Has the building been demolished?
22017-03-19 16:42:40 UTCsam kenney Yes and has been replaced by fuel station
12017-03-19 15:25:56 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM
I see you have added Humbleton Farm, which is great. We outline the farmyard, as best we can, and ass landuse=farmyard, not place=farm. That will make it consistent with most farms in the UK on OSM
22017-03-19 15:30:25 UTCtrigpoint You have also joined it to a powerline, which is obviously incorrect and to the centreline of Mill Lane.
32017-03-19 15:37:55 UTCdelfimo Apologies. Have sorted now. Deleted old area as unable to figure out how to change area.
12017-03-18 10:09:14 UTCtrigpoint Hi, the name tag should only be used for an actual name, not just to add additional information. The correct way to indicate that a car park is private is to use an access tag, in this case access=private. Not sure if can fix this, you may need to login to and use a proper editor suc...
12017-03-15 12:32:57 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
Thank you for edit, however according to the osm wiki smoking=no should not be used if it is the law, as it is in this case.
You seem to be using an app called SpotOn, please could you provide a URL for it?
Cheers Phil
12017-03-14 19:50:59 UTCtrigpoint Hi Mike, just checking that you have surveyed this path recently. The area is being developed so just checking.
Cheers Phil
12017-03-11 15:18:09 UTCtrigpoint Hi, what is the source of this information?
I have never seen any evidence for the existence of a Roman Road and find it highly unlikely that it followed the modern alignment of the A49 between Weston and Prees.
Also this type of information is more appropriate in OpenHistoricalMap rather then OSM...
22017-03-12 09:35:51 UTCtrigpoint The North Shropshire section appears to be pure fiction, the Roman Road is only shown on your claimed source in very short sections. Where did the rest come from?
It is very unlikely that the Roman road followed the present roads through Shawbury.
I do not have a usable source but I do know it did...
32017-03-12 14:36:43 UTCDyserth Hi. Please see area around SJ55471 24483. Marked as Roman Road (Course of) on OS Map, northern section curves to the west near Moston Grange and follows the alignment of the unclassified road heading towards the A49 where it passes through the modern cutting.
This has been constructed at a natural...
42017-03-12 15:16:56 UTCtrigpoint Thank you for these updates, it does seem much more believable and there are references to the Roman Road on OS Opendata.
I would suggest that the route was not through Prees village but followed a straight line from the present junction with the B5065 via Prees Church which forms a straight line ...
52017-03-12 15:29:38 UTCtrigpoint I should probably add that is is likely that the course of the road drifted over time and that up until WW2 this section of the A49 was a minor road which was upgraded as a bypass.
12017-03-12 14:06:07 UTCtrigpoint Hi, I'm not sure what this shop is. But it is certainly not a department store. Please do not mistag.
12017-03-12 13:05:42 UTCtrigpoint Fiction reverted
12017-03-12 13:03:21 UTCtrigpoint The middle of a residential road is a very unlikely place for a viewpoint, I am reverting this edit.
12017-03-12 12:56:05 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
Cherry Hinton Campsite is already mapped, so I am removing your duplication.
12017-03-10 17:34:44 UTCtrigpoint Wow, the A14 is being extended to North Wales?
22017-03-10 18:54:00 UTCGlucosamine Ooops - one of those change set titles which gets copied from one set of updates to quite another - mea culpa for not checking. Any ideas on how to change a change set title? On the other hand, with a £1.3B budget, the A14 really ought to reach the border ...
32017-03-10 18:56:53 UTCtrigpoint Don't worry about changing the existing ones, not sure if that is even possible. I was just jokingly making you aware so you would fix it next time you edit.
42017-03-10 19:27:12 UTCGlucosamine Taken in the spirit intended. Not the first time this has caught me out when using a specific title when I normally use a generic - will try to remember to check for at least the immediate future - though I'm sure I'll slip up again at some point.
12017-03-10 15:20:56 UTCtrigpoint Airbnbs are private homes and do not belong in OSM, I have reverted this
22017-03-10 15:25:05 UTCHpriem Good...thank you
12017-03-10 14:45:24 UTCBCNorwich Are you sure that is a hotel, or is it just a room rental??
22017-03-10 15:13:39 UTCtrigpoint Airbnb are private homes and have no place in OSM, I am reverting this
12017-03-09 20:22:08 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM
Rapid Welding is an unlikely name for a hardware shop. What are you trying to map. is a very basic editor, to do more than basics you need to use a proper editor such as iD on
12017-03-09 18:15:53 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

You seem to have added a park over the top of an existing park. This is not a good idea.

I will revert (undo) this edit.
22017-03-09 18:16:18 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your edit, the park was already mapped so I have removed your duplication and put the name onto the existing area.
32017-03-16 15:44:00 UTCDaveF Removed
12017-03-06 13:10:46 UTCtrigpoint Hi, way appears to be total fantasy. There is no separate way visible on bing or mapbox imagery. Also many entry exit nodes are shared which causes exit counts to be wrong, i.e. you have to enter a roundabout to leave it. Oneway on a roundabout is not neede...
22017-03-07 01:26:47 UTCDyserth Fantastic appearances can be deceptive. The left carriageway separates into three lanes here, the left hand one of which you can only use to bypass the roundabout, turning left along Abergele Road. You cannot enter it. I have therefore tagged it as a one-way Primary Link as this lane has no intersec...
12017-03-05 22:31:32 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this looks very small and an odd place for a hospital. What were you trying to achieve
12017-03-05 19:40:11 UTCtrigpoint Hi, I got some odd instructions from for this roundabout today. Now I am home and able to check I see that for some strange reason you removed the roundabout tags and replaced it with oneway. Why?
22017-03-07 01:51:43 UTCDyserth If I remember correctly at some point iD was not showing roundabouts as oneway unless they were tagged as such. I did change a few tags to reflect this as clearly roundabouts are not two-way flows but clearly this flaw in the editor has now been rectified. However because that edit was done 2 years ...
12017-03-05 09:45:07 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Please remember that osm is a live database, please do not usr it for tests. I am removing this doodle.
12017-03-04 17:30:44 UTCtrigpoint Hi, thank you for adding these footpaths, however they should not end where the gate/stile is, they need to connect to the road otherwise routers will see them as dead ends and not use them.
I have connected the footpaths to the roads.
Cheers Phil
12017-03-02 20:17:18 UTCtrigpoint Hi, not sure how closely you were looking here, but the smaller roundabout is clearly a mini-roundabout.
22017-03-03 09:32:49 UTCchris_debian Hi, trigpoint.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I've done some reading, and it seems that a mini-roundabout is frequently described as being a white painted circle, on the road, or a slightlyraised white bump, in the road. Having reexamined this roundabout, for it's construction and size...
32017-03-03 21:25:48 UTCtrigpoint The definition of a mini-roundabout is not necessarily painted white, but it needs to be traversable. At least one in Oakengates is cobblestones.
This one is very definitely a mini-roundabout, and painted white, so I have corrected it.
12017-03-03 16:33:50 UTCtrigpoint Hi johnnie
There was no need to remove these paths, I am in no doubt that they exist. They just needed to be connected to Thornton Lane and the sidewalk tag removing as they are not sidewalks.
But please do no check OS, we do not have permission to use such data, what you see is the best data we ...

12017-03-02 20:18:51 UTCtrigpoint Hi, please can you explain this change, as far as I know wikipedia tags are not case sensitive. Who decided they must start with a capital letter?
22017-03-02 20:25:05 UTCnyuriks Hi @trigpoint, the Wikipedia title has a "normalized" form (actually the rules for it are very complex, such as each portion of the title has to be capital first, such as namespace, after namespace, and after each "/" if subpages are enabled). Plus some url decoding, spaces instead of underscores, a...
32017-03-03 22:09:55 UTCnyuriks I just updated my auto-generated page with lists: -- these are only wikipedia articles with their wikidata's "instance of" = Q13406463 and Q15623926, but I could obviously add more. Let me know
42017-03-03 22:10:23 UTCnyuriks oops, wrong changeset, sorry.
12017-03-02 19:50:12 UTCtrigpoint Hi, I'm not sure the address and postcode belong on the ATM. They belong to the post office to which it is attached :)
12017-02-24 18:22:40 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Priory Country Park is already mapped as a nature reserve. Adding a park over the top seems contradictory and doubles the name. Bing imagery seems to confirm it is not what we normally tag as a park.
22017-03-02 18:40:03 UTCtrigpoint No response, so reverted
12017-03-02 18:29:30 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your additions, however you do need to connect them to the road for them to be useful. Also I do not think footway=sidewalk is really an accurate description of these cross-field rights of way.
The correct way to tag rights of way is highway=footway, designation=pu...
12017-03-02 18:19:36 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your edit however you have created a number of duplications. McDonalds and TNT were already mapped using ways, mapping with nodes are a bit of a step backwards.
Also the name tag is for an actual name, and should not be used for descriptions such as 'playground' an...
12017-03-02 18:05:22 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. I have been trying to work out what you were doing here and all I could find were two new ways which had no tags. I am going to revert this change.
Please carry on editing, but it is better to map things locally that you know well to start with.
12017-03-01 10:13:00 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
In OSM we map what exists on the ground, the tags you have added suggest that this is on the wrong continent. Please remove and, if it.really exists, an appropriate place. But please remember that OSM is not a business directory.
12017-02-28 13:18:26 UTCtrigpoint Hi, just wondering if ref:gss has any purpose in osm. There appear to be several within the town, why this one? and what purpose do they serve? The areas have no geographic meaning and appear to have been drawn by a 2 year old.
Cheers Phil
22017-02-28 13:30:59 UTCThe Maarssen Mapper Hi Phil
The areas are civil parishes, so they are definitely geographically relevant, just like districts and counties. The ref:gss indicates the ID of the polygon in official records. When the boundary changes, it gets a new ID, so knowing which version of the boundary is represented by the relati...
32017-02-28 19:42:30 UTCtrigpoint A google search took me in a little deeper and that gave a strange area, which I could not work out the logic behind although it was suggested that it is postcodes, that example cuts at least one postcode in half.
It does feel wrong ...
42017-02-28 20:07:38 UTCThe Maarssen Mapper Hi Phil,
An output area is only for statistical and not for local government jurisdictions... E00 polygons are not present in OSM as far as I know. The immediate source of the data may be OSBL, but the actual source of the boundary is GSS, who provide the boundaries to the OS, also for "publication...

12017-02-24 17:56:28 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your contribution, based on your description and aerial imagery this area is a recreation ground, rather than a park. I have changed it and added the playground.
12017-02-21 22:15:00 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to osm. Something has gone a little wrong here, the building you have created is rather large and covers several streets. Would you like some help fixing it?
22017-02-22 07:39:15 UTCBCNorwich Hello yes welcome.
Your next changeset made incorrect alterations so I've reverted both changeset as both have problems.
I researched your company and have added a POI at the building mapped as 46 Loman Street. Please check this out and adjust as necessary.

12017-02-18 14:36:23 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. In OSM tagging is sometimes subtle, there is a difference between a park and a recreattion ground and all evidence suggests this is a recreation ground.

2. Imagery shows a grassy area with pitches laid out, that definitely fits the w...

12017-02-18 12:28:55 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your input however your comments make me a little wary. You state 'as per OS map', current OS maps are copyright and cannot be used in OSM and your lines do not match older out of copyright data.
When mapping rights of way we map the line as it exists on the ground...
22017-02-18 14:11:54 UTCTom Webster Phil,

Many thanks for your input. I came across this site whilst looking for local walks and footpaths and then thought to check paths crossing our own land. Your current map appears to be incorrect and shows a path that does not exist in practice or on any other map I have seen. It is this that...
32017-02-18 15:36:18 UTCtrigpoint Hi Tom
Thank you for your comments, that sounds like you have actually made these changes using your own knowledge, rather than just copied from another map. This is the kind of input we prefer, there is no need to justify what you know/have seen by quoting another source.

12017-02-09 14:20:13 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap. IMHO one ought not to assume speed limits, it's really just guessing. Would it be possible to go there and properly survey the roads.
22017-02-09 14:27:56 UTCBCNorwich Oh and the foot-way, are cycles allowed there? Also the foot-way is not joined to the roads at each end so software will not be able to route along it.
32017-02-09 19:15:50 UTCmarkf0wle I live on this road. The speed limit isn't sign posted on the estate, my assumption was my interpretation of the highway code. I will double check & correct if nessecary.

I will amend the footpath. Yes, bicycles are permitted on all the footpaths in the area to my knowledge.
42017-02-11 15:53:48 UTCtrigpoint You have tagged Welling Road as lanes=1, is that true? It doesn't look like a single track road on bing imagery.
Also 20mph areas cannot exist without signs.
52017-02-11 22:57:23 UTCmarkf0wle OK, good shout. I have corrected the lanes on Welling Rd, is 2 lanes - 1 in each direction.

I have too found this reviewing the highway code, therefore the official speed limit would be 30mph as that is the last posted speed as you enter Welling Road from Brentwood Road.
62017-02-12 07:14:37 UTCBCNorwich Would you then correct the speed limits on the estate please?
It would be wrong for OSM, (the best map in the world), to knowingly contain wrong data.

22017-02-10 19:10:22 UTCtrigpoint I am reverting this edit as this area is a construction site for crossrail.

12017-02-08 21:26:27 UTCtrigpoint Hi, are you sure this path has gone. I do remember it was to be retained and quarried around. It and the bridge are clearly on bing imagery. Has it since gone? If so what is the new route of The Rutland Round as the relation now has a hole in it.
22017-02-08 22:54:03 UTCB'o'B The diversion route was temporary and the Rutland Round and E229 footpath are now back on the original line which is the straighter path to the NE of the path I deleted.
Kind regards
32017-02-08 22:58:22 UTCB'o'B My apologies for making a hole in the Rutland Round route I had assumed it was still marked on the original route which it has now been returned to
42017-02-10 09:27:33 UTCB'o'B I have re-edited the removal of the temporary diversion of the Rutland Round by moving the nodes to the line of the footpath that it now follows instead of deleting it. I hope this is satisfactory to you.

12017-02-04 17:44:21 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for these additions, they are very useful. One small thing, these types of path are normally tagged as highway=footway, highway=pedestrian is normally used for pedestranised streets such as Gallowtree Gate. Keep up the good work.
12017-02-04 09:56:17 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. The post office was already mapped so I have removed the duplication.
12017-02-04 09:48:23 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. You seem to havbe misplaced this node. It has an address in the US yet you have put it in London.
I am reverting this edit.
Please drop the verbal diarrhea in the changeset comment.
12017-02-03 13:43:08 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Some of your edits seem a little strange. For example if I were to visit this location will I actually see a monument? and if I do is it really in the middle of the road?
Also tagging a modern office building and a bike rack as historic is very bizarre. What were you trying to a...
22017-02-03 14:05:24 UTCStuart Lennox-Hill I seem to be having some difficulty with the tagging, it's copying from history. (Same with the edit notes... it's using the old one).

The office building is Vantage House, right next to it is the bike rack, they should be two completely separate edits?! I had to un-merge it once already. Zoom in...
12017-02-02 12:38:20 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. The school is already mapped as an area and with a name.
I am removing this duplication.
Cheers Phil
12017-02-01 10:33:09 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

Thanks for the new road. You may like to join it to Millhall Road. This allows routing by phone and satnav to get people to the road.

22017-02-01 10:37:13 UTCtrigpoint Also please could you capitalise the name correctly, thanks
12017-01-31 20:51:29 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
We try to map things accurately as they exist in the real world
This and many of your other additions appear to be doodles, this one is on top of a road.
22017-02-01 07:38:33 UTCBCNorwich Removed duplicated way.
12017-01-31 20:05:09 UTCtrigpoint I am reverting this change, you have turned a correctly mapped skateboard area into a park, that is considered vandalism
12017-01-31 19:46:51 UTCtrigpoint Hi, you seem to have changed a wood that had been added by another mapper to a park. I can see it is a wood so I have fixed it.
12017-01-31 19:35:07 UTCtrigpoint HI, you seem to have added a park to a mountain area. In OSM we map what exists on the ground and this is not most peoples idea of a park.
I am reverting this edit.
12017-01-29 21:44:19 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. The paths you added were already mapped as service roads, you therefore created duplications. I have removed these.
12017-01-29 21:00:42 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Something has gone a little wrong here, you have added impossible paths which pass through houses. I have reverted this change.
Please remember that we add only what really exists.
12017-01-26 22:08:34 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM
Thanks for the edit. You need to add amenity=fuel to mark the object as a fuel station. It probably isn't called 'Petrol Station', so changing the name to the name that is displayed on the business would be good too.

22017-01-29 16:55:17 UTCtrigpoint I have tagged this from memory, will check sometime or NWillowsrough can confirm.
Cheers Phil
12017-01-29 16:39:27 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. I have reverted this changeset as you have incorrectly changed recreation grounds and a common to parks.
The clue is in the name i.e. Fryern Rec is not likely to be a park.
12017-01-28 20:43:03 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. In OSM we map things that really exist on the ground, we do not map thing that do not exist such as your reservoir, a garden as a park or footpaths through gardens. I am reverting your edits
12017-01-27 18:10:02 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. I assume this footpath is meant to connect to Wellbeck Drive? For it to be usable it does need to connect. Shout up if you need a hand.
22017-01-27 19:20:13 UTCBCNorwich I don't think there is a footpath goes through the houses just there.
12017-01-27 17:42:08 UTCtrigpoint You seem to have deleted all the buildings in the botanic gardens, that is vandalism. Reverting
12017-01-27 17:28:25 UTCtrigpoint These areas were correctly mapped as grass, they are not parks. Reverting
12017-01-27 17:22:22 UTCtrigpoint You have for some reason changed two schools to colleges, that is clearly incorrect they are very definitely schools. I am reverting this edit
12017-01-27 17:06:57 UTCtrigpoint Reverting fiction
12017-01-27 16:18:36 UTCtrigpoint This footpath is a duplication of the existing cycleway. I am reverting this edit.
12017-01-27 16:17:33 UTCtrigpoint This footpath is fiction, I am reverting this edit
12017-01-27 16:13:45 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. OSM is a live database, used by many people and as such we only add what exists in the real world. There is no park here, it is houses so I am reverting this edit
12017-01-26 23:45:15 UTCtrigpoint Hi, thank you for your edit. You do seem to be making things complicated, a relation for your first edit. In this case it is not really needed, just join the two way and put the tags there. And of course delete the relation.
Give me a shout if you need a hand.
12017-01-26 23:38:13 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Something appears to have gone a bit wrong here. You seem to have deleted a large number of POIs. I am sure that was an accident so I am going to revert this changeset.
If you would like to comment and explain what you were intending then we can help
12017-01-26 23:30:40 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM, I am reverting this as we only map what already exists and this is housing.
12017-01-26 23:16:36 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Please remember that OSM is a live database and that we only map what exists in the real world,
This area is clearly not a park, I have reverted this change.
BTW It is unlikely you will find a missing park in Wigston.
12017-01-26 12:51:58 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your addition, however Greenfields Rec was already correctly mapped as a recreation_ground. Your park was a duplication which I have removed.
Please ask if you need advice on adding information to OSM.
Cheers Phil
12017-01-24 20:35:03 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. The area around a church should be tagged as a churchyard. It is not likely to be a park. That seems to be mistagging.
12017-01-24 18:21:18 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
Thank you for correcting the position of the Admiral Duncan, although we only map the building where it is, I have tidyed this up and mapped the car park. The beer garden isn't exactly a park so I have retagged it.
The village green can be tagged as a village green, no need to ...

12017-01-21 16:24:31 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM and thank you for your addition of a footpath. It looks good.
As you are local I wonder if you could check the legal access status of Vincents Roadm it has previously been tagged as access=permissive which looks a little odd.
Thanks Phil
12017-01-02 14:17:11 UTCimagico I would consider this essentially mapping for the renderer - beaches do extent below the high water line obviously and natural=tidal_beach is not documented while equivalent established tagging exists (natural=beach + tidal=yes)

If the lowest parts here is still a beach (i.e. wave formed) or a ti...
22017-01-15 11:05:48 UTCdmgroom_ct The wiki is very clear that the tag "natural = beach" is only for the part of the beach above the MHW line.

So what you refer to as established tagging is still in contravention of what is expected.
32017-01-16 11:03:54 UTCimagico Well - the 'how to map' section on the wiki does not represent common mapping practice here and contradicts the basic definition of natural=beach as a landform.

The wiki by the way currently also says you should tag the part of a beach below the high water line as natural=shoal - which of course ...
42017-01-17 14:26:32 UTCdmgroom_ct I will emnail you via the OSM msg system
52017-01-21 16:16:05 UTCtrigpoint Please don't do that, it is better to keep these discussion in the open.
Thanks Phl
12017-01-18 19:23:13 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. This edit looks very odd, what is the source you are using.
It seems very odd to map mud around jettys.
Also please could you use meaningful changeset comments describing what you have done so that other mappers know what you are intending. #thamesmapathon tells us nothing.
12017-01-18 19:11:26 UTCtrigpoint Please see comments on note
The spelling does not match OS Opendata Locator or local tradition.
Thanks Phil
22017-01-19 09:47:38 UTCACS1986 By bizarre coincidence I stopped at the premier inn next door earlier in the year and noticed the Dutch spelling at the time. Unless it has been changed Kopje is the spelling on the road sign
12017-01-16 16:20:28 UTCmaldav I do not seem to be able to label the route 6. What am I doing wrong?
22017-01-17 12:44:20 UTCtrigpoint What do you mean by label? What are you expecting
32017-01-17 13:08:40 UTCSK53 If you want it to appear on the transport map I think you need to put the bus route number in the ref tag, so add ref=6 and then it should appear along the relevant roads. Here's an example from my own area:

22017-01-13 20:14:06 UTCBCNorwich Hello Phil,

No I didn't miss it, I left it for you, please see my comment here :-, just joking. It will always be football to me! What do you think, conform or not?

Regards Bernard
12017-01-13 19:15:46 UTCtrigpoint Another undisguised mass edit, with no explanation. And you are still ignoring mappers comments.
22017-01-15 10:00:52 UTCdmgroom_ct I was nit ignoring mappers commenst, I have no idea what changeset comments were not being emailed to me, but to be fair there were enough other ways of contacting me.
12017-01-11 12:57:35 UTCDaveF Hi
Out of curiosity, what software are you using to validate these errors?
22017-01-11 18:27:18 UTCtrigpoint And what are you actually fixing, and please map in smaller areas so that you don't waste mappers time trying to work out which of the 6 pages are in their area.
32017-01-15 09:56:22 UTCdmgroom_ct It's not a mass edit. Each edit was individually made my me after viewing Bing imagery, looking at the error I was trying to fix, and then fixing it in JOSM

12017-01-10 18:58:35 UTCtrigpoint Hi, FP20 is a public right of way reference and should be put in the prow_ref tag, rather than the name. The name tag is for names.
It is certainly not FP20 for the majority of its length, it obviously isn't a Leicestershire right of way reference.
It also needs a bit more, I doubt it is Derbyshir...
22017-01-11 09:56:41 UTCENB45 Hi Phil, I continued on an existing path, I guess the name was already in there.

12017-01-04 18:07:04 UTCtrigpoint Hi Geoff, welcome to OSM but please remember that OSM is a live database. It should not be used for testing.

22017-01-05 13:53:35 UTCdebelasers Hi Robert, Yes the node should be in one of the buildings but I couldn't place it correctly on the first go and then couldn't work out how to move it. We are in the north east corner of Appley Court, directly facing the access road.
And yes we moved from St Francis Way in November so I was trying t...
32017-01-05 13:54:57 UTCdebelasers Also, Electronics shop is a poor description of what we do (we design industrial lasers) but it was the closest I could find
42017-01-06 15:19:38 UTCtrigpoint Shop is probably the wrong description, made_made=works, product=industrial_lasers would fit better I think.
You will need to use a proper computer based editor, such as iD, rather than as it only allows a very limited subset of pre-defined tags to be used.
12017-01-06 13:49:36 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
The correct way to tag a a postcode is addr:postcode rather than the name tag. I am not sure what Wy Wyri is, but the middle of the road is an odd place, postcodes normally apply to places where mail is delivered to, and maybe use addr:housename.
Trees are mapped as natural=tre...
22017-01-06 13:52:31 UTCMikeValentineUK Cheers Phil.
I'm completely new here and clearly blundering around whilst trying to make myself accessible to the World!
The trees are a local landmark and regular navigation aid.
32017-01-06 14:00:20 UTCtrigpoint Thank you Mike, they sound a useful thing to add. If you change them to natural=tree, you probably need a new node so you have one for each tree, then tag them as natural=tree then they will show on the map.
You can add species:en=oak, maybe species:cy if you can.
12017-01-06 13:34:56 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
THis edit looks a little odd, a stream that passes through a house.
I am reverting this edit.
12017-01-05 12:56:04 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
Heathrow is already mapped, please do not add personal markers to the map.
I have removed this node.
12017-01-04 18:08:55 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. This should probably be amenity=social club, bar implies it is open to the public, whereas a social club has membership rules.
Cheers Phil
22017-01-04 19:56:08 UTCBCNorwich Yes welcome to OSM. Actually the facility is already mapped and all information is on the building outline. It is tagged as amenity=social_club, so I have removed your POI so as not to duplicate the information, hope that's OK.
32017-01-04 19:59:23 UTCtrigpoint Well spotted, the building and club outline are separate and overlapping ways. That could do with a tidy up while you are removing the node.
42017-01-04 21:02:22 UTCBCNorwich Sorry forgot to mention the duplicate I removed as well.
12017-01-02 14:09:57 UTCtrigpoint Hello, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your edit however something has gone a little wrong here, you seem to have created 2 untagged ways on top of existing ways.
What were you trying to achieve, maybe we can help.
Cheers Phil
22017-01-02 14:10:52 UTCchillly Hi, Welcome to OSM.

You seem to be struggling. You have added two things over te top of existing roads, but they are not tagged in any way to say what you intend them to be. Did you mean to save this? Would you like some help to tidy this up?

12016-12-31 11:52:32 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
This addition looks a little odd, looking at bing imagery it does not look like a car park, or accessible.
What were you intending, the name trailhead also looks odd. That is an American concept.
22016-12-31 19:15:46 UTCSparky59 .

This is a new hill walk that a local farmer has created to allow the public to use 4 purpose made trails (each between 1.5 and 5.5 km long, from the car park, along the side of the river and then up into the hills before returning to the car park.

The car park is a small stone area with room...
32016-12-31 21:17:46 UTCtrigpoint Thank you for that information, it just looked a bit odd with no road link.
Its not possible with, but would it be possible to login to osm on a pc and add the access road, bridge and car park and maybe the paths too?
Ask if you need any help.
Cheers Phil
12016-12-30 19:17:59 UTCSomeoneElse Is the pub really separate to the "Inn at Ardgour"? Does it have a different name?
22016-12-31 17:29:52 UTCtrigpoint They were one and the same place when I was there a few years ago
12016-12-31 16:30:58 UTCtrigpoint Hi, thank you for your addition however you should connect the steps/paths to the road in some way otherwise you are just creating an unusable island.

12016-12-31 14:49:36 UTCtrigpoint Hi, what does fgmn mean?
12016-12-31 13:58:29 UTCRobJN Not bogus trigpoint! Please check before reverting. This is a grassed "park" area with paths through it.
22016-12-31 14:03:01 UTCRobJN Needs a proper survey but I've done a basic revert of your revert as the user was right to add a park here: changeset 44807049
32016-12-31 14:25:14 UTCtrigpoint Sorry Rob, it does need a survey but not sure I would consider a small grassy area in the middle of a housing estate to be a park.
12016-12-31 11:22:18 UTCtrigpoint Hello, thank you for your additions. In the UK we use footway, rather than path, for mapping PROW. I have changed these to footway and added designation=public_footpath. Not sure why we need path at all to be honest, it just confuses new mappers.
The southern path you added is actually a track, aga...

12016-12-30 13:17:44 UTCWynndale Did you mean to enter the postcode as NW10 7F?
22016-12-30 14:37:17 UTCORaha Well there are two postcodes assigned to this building, 7FR and 7FS
32016-12-30 15:56:58 UTCtrigpoint I assume they are for different businesses?

If so then it would be better to add a node for each and remove the postcode from the building.
42016-12-30 22:43:59 UTCORaha No it's a residential building. One block and different flats have different postcodes
12016-12-29 19:27:40 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM, thank you for your edit however are you sure it is a park, imagery suggests a school to me.
22016-12-29 21:03:46 UTCxWolfeBlitz Hiya yea its a park, there is a nursery there aswell but mainly its a public park
32016-12-29 21:51:06 UTCtrigpoint Thank you, keep on adding to OSM.
Coalisland looks rather empty, there must be load of stuff to add. Schools, pubs, shops and stuff
12016-12-29 19:19:37 UTCtrigpoint Please remember that OSM is a public database, it should not be used for personal markers
12016-12-29 18:55:12 UTCtrigpoint Hi, I am not sure why you changed the relation type from the British Museum, but the type multipolygon was correct, there is no such relation as building.
I am fixing this mistake, but please read
Cheers Phil
12016-12-29 18:04:38 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
Shiprow 15 is a very odd name for a hotel, however 15 Shiprow is the address of the Ibis which is already mapped. I have removed your duplication as it is in the wrong place
12016-12-28 13:33:01 UTCtrigpoint Hi, something has gone a little wrong here.
Chessington South station is now tagged both as an active station and a disused one. Which is correct?
22016-12-28 16:20:04 UTCshitworth Ah, that probably explains my confusion at not being able to spot it earlier. It's definitely an active station:
32016-12-28 17:05:15 UTCtrigpoint It was changed a few weeks ago, will comment on that and tidy up here. He has also changed the platforms to disused.
42016-12-28 17:28:32 UTCtrigpoint Hopefully all fixed now
12016-12-28 17:12:00 UTCtrigpoint Hi, something has gone rather wrong with this change. You changed Chessington South to disused, which has obviously confused local mappers as it is very much still in use. I have fixed this but in future please can you add meaningful comments to your changes so that other mappers can work out what y...
12016-12-28 15:12:02 UTCtrigpoint Hi, the name tag is for actual names. Gated road is a description, if there are gates then map them but please to not use name for stuff like this.
12016-12-27 18:12:37 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

When I see your first edit deleting stuff with comment of deleting excessive detail, this is worrying. OSM wants MORE detail not less. Why have you deleted stuff like this?
22016-12-27 18:19:21 UTCchillly Looking at this more closely I have reverted this edit. There is no way all this should be deleted.
32016-12-27 18:47:04 UTCBCNorwich Just wanted to add support to the decision to revert this changeset. It's very easy to make mistakes when you first jump into OSM mapping, I'm sure freefromsociety can make positive contributions. Just takes little research as to best practices first.
42016-12-28 09:27:31 UTCSomeoneElse Whilst it might make sense to restore some of this detail, I'm a bit sceptical about others - I doubt that is any sort of "pedestrian area", for example.
52016-12-28 14:04:24 UTCtrigpoint Also, whilst not part of this changeset. The A16 is incorrectly mapped as a dual carriageway. This could use a tidy up.
12016-12-27 20:59:33 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. The paths you added in Central Park were a duplication of the existing cycleways. I have removed the duplication.
12016-12-27 18:13:30 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. This edit has gone a little wrong, the Drayton Court Hotel is already mapped, I have removed your duplication.
12016-12-26 14:57:51 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. The paths you have added seem to be pure fiction. There are no marks on the ground and they cross pitches.
Please remember that in OSM we only add what exists in the real world.
12016-12-24 11:16:05 UTCtrigpoint Does really exist, it looks like it goes through someones garden?

12016-12-25 16:12:18 UTCtrigpoint Reverted
12016-12-25 16:08:48 UTCtrigpoint Please remember that OSM is a public database, please do not add personal markers.
I am reverting this addition
12016-12-25 13:43:03 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Please remember that OSM is a map in which we map what exists in the real world. Please do not retag objects for your own purposes, this is considered vandalism.
I have reverted your changes as neither are parks.
12016-12-24 17:01:39 UTCtrigpoint Is there really a pear tree in the middle of the road?
22016-12-24 17:05:05 UTCHarrymapping So sorry, it's left a bit, there's a residents pear tree at the end of the road.
32016-12-24 17:31:34 UTCtrigpoint You may want to create new node and tag it as natural=tree, tree=pear.
Just creating a point with a name does nothing.

22016-12-24 17:03:26 UTCHarrymapping There's a small plaque on the wall for Bobby.
32016-12-24 17:30:04 UTCtrigpoint This is normally mapped as historic=memorial then memorial=plaque. You may want to add some more detail, they usually say a bit more than Bobby.

Aerial imagery suggests that this path does not exist, can you convince me otherwise?
22016-12-24 08:15:25 UTCBCNorwich Yes Welcome to OpenStreetMap. The park doesn't look right either. I can find no reference to a park or public space here. It is likely to be part of Woolmer's park, a large farm.

12016-12-23 17:27:59 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
I think this change has gone a little wrong, you have changed New Walk from a pedestrian street to a footway which seems a little odd to me as it has been mapped that way since it was first mapped 9 years ago. Just wondering why you consider it to be wrong?
You have also create...
22016-12-24 10:48:51 UTCtrigpoint I have restored New Walk and Highcross to highway=pedestrian
12016-12-24 09:42:58 UTCtrigpoint HI, welcome to OSM. We only map what exists on thbe ground, and we do not mis-tag what does exist. Changing a road to a footpath means map users will not be able to route over it. I consider your change vandalism and have reverted it.
12016-12-23 09:02:07 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
What is the source of this addition? I am not aware of any such path. The name also looks a bit odd.

22016-12-23 09:39:29 UTCZanigan Hey Phil

Yeah, made corrections to the playground in town. For some reason the name 'Minsterley Play Ground (with in-built GYM)' kept to other corrections made for some reason. Would I have to delete and re-create again to change the title?
There is also a public footpath that goes directly thro...
32016-12-23 14:54:42 UTCtrigpoint There is no need to recreate the playgound, the odd title is only on the changset, although you may want to disconnect it from the road.

It would be good to map the legal lines, if a farmer illegally obst...

22016-12-23 14:48:51 UTCtrigpoint I drove passed here today, your edits are entirely fiction. I intend to revert them.
12016-12-22 00:32:02 UTCtrigpoint Is tourism really the correct tag for ?
Aerial imagery suggest it is residental, rather than somewhere to go on holiday?
12016-12-21 23:07:04 UTCGinaroZ Hi, noticed you added a number of duplicate POIs in this changeset. I've removed some of them, please make sure you check buildings/nodes already present before adding duplicates next time :)
22016-12-22 00:26:11 UTCtrigpoint A miners welfare is normally tagged as amenity=social_club, it is unlikely to be a traditional pub.
12016-12-21 10:34:21 UTCtrigpoint Hi, whilst I can see that Dalefiemapld Drive has been extended on mapbox imagery, I don't see a turning circle. It looks like a cul-de-sac, you certainly cannot turn around without using reverse.
22016-12-26 10:52:37 UTCnikhilprabhakar Hi Trigpoint,

Excuse me for the late reply, I have removed the turn circle as per your feedback. Please have a look and lemme know if everything else is correct in this area. And thanks a lot for pointing this out.

12016-12-20 20:02:05 UTCtrigpoint Hi, something went a little wrong with this changset. Whilst you created a building in Japan, you also dragged a crossing node in London. I have fixed the node drag and hopefully did not affect the building.
12016-12-20 19:39:11 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. I think that something has gone a bit wrong here. We normally change the tagging on a closed pub to disused:amenity=pub. For some reason you have changed the name of the bus stop.
12016-12-20 19:36:56 UTCtrigpoint Hi, I don't think the postbox is actually named Post Box. The name tag should not normally be filled in for object such a postboxes.
12016-12-20 17:07:37 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. What is actually here, is it a building or simply a signpost.

12015-07-04 17:31:45 UTCDaveF Hi Snake Skin

There's an expression in OSM: 'Don't tag incorrectly to suit the renderer'.

For accuracyIf a KG is a KG then it should be tagged as such. If you wish an item to be visible in a specific render you should contact the person creating the tiles.

72016-12-20 16:53:37 UTCtrigpoint Not really a comment on the mapping, or the rendering, but if a PROW has stiles or kissing gates then it is a public footpath. You should not be taking a bike on such paths.

The admin_level=10 boundary already exists and you removed the place node which is important for navigation.
22016-12-19 20:48:41 UTCshirokazan The difficulty of the existing boundary is that it means that roads such as Curlew Croft are not recorded as Leighton Buzzard but Billington, which doesn't make any sense.
12016-12-17 10:58:07 UTCtrigpoint Please do not add spam to name tags or change the name of bus stops away from their official name. I am removing these tags.
22016-12-17 19:00:40 UTCSomeoneElse Actually, I'd suggest adding a "real_ale" tag, like here .
You won't be able to do this from MAPS.ME, but you will from the web-based editors at

22016-12-16 17:01:18 UTCmrlourobinson Apologies, I didnt realise it had added that comment. Seems to have kept the comment from a previous change for Missing Maps. I'll be careful it doesn't happen again.

12016-12-15 13:08:52 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
It is impossible to work out what you wanted to achieve with this addition to the live OSM database as there are no descriptive tags. What I can deduce is that as far as I am aware this line is not verifiable as existing in reality, (unless you can enlighten me)....
22016-12-15 15:05:26 UTCBrianWharf Feel free, what I was trying to achieve doesn't seem possible here. Also, you may wish to get somebody to read back your text as some of it seems rather condescending.
32016-12-15 16:23:49 UTCtrigpoint What were you trying to achieve? Maybe someone can help. OSN is based around tags, so any untagged object will do nothing in OSM.
12016-12-14 19:23:45 UTCtrigpoint Hi, did you discuss the removal of the building tags from HMS Belfast anywhere, such as with the GB community?
It is long accepted practice that permanently moored ships are tagged as buildings.
HMS Belfast is a significant national tourist attraction. I have replaced the tag you have removed.
22016-12-14 20:54:12 UTC4b696d I did not discuss anything. All I did was following the rules I found in the wiki which clearly state otherwise, but it is not my object to cause any trouble. In case you have complaints about my other edits please let me know. Don't worry about the ship, I will not touch it again.

22016-12-11 19:03:31 UTCJoeNerini1 Hi Phil,

The OpenStreetMap Wiki states that Town Halls "may just serve as a community meeting place" so I feel this classification is appropriate.

32016-12-15 16:59:00 UTCSK53 No this is not an appropriate classification. Use either amenity=village_hall or amenity=community_centre which are the accepted values for such places in the UK, and have been so for at least 6-7 years.

Happy mapping, Phil
12016-12-05 12:50:06 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your edit, however you do need to tag the objects you add. As a minimum they will need building=yes, area=yes isn't needed very often.

142016-12-02 15:59:16 UTCSiHollett Mike, any reason why you couldn't do it? surely it would have taken less time for you to do it than to ask me to?

also, why am I responsible, when someone else erroneously made it secondary, rather than tertiary?

Anyway, I've changed it, though I have no idea why I'm being so nice. I even chan...
152016-12-02 16:32:06 UTCMike Baggaley Thanks for that, Si. I am not local to the area so don't know anything about the road, other than that it failed my check of secondary roads with a ref beginning with something other than a B, so I had no way of knowing which tag was incorrect. As the last change to the road was to set its ref, it s...
162016-12-02 16:37:59 UTCSiHollett OK, thanks Mike, that makes sense
12016-11-29 23:57:59 UTCtrigpoint Hi, I think the words Roman Road mean it was a Roman Road, its not the name.

32016-11-30 19:01:06 UTCA12B I can confirm this area of land is grass and can even be seen from the satellite imaginary.
42016-11-30 19:08:31 UTCSomeoneElse Er - not really. If you look at you can see a dog-leg of grass which covers part of the university's sports ground (which presumably is grass, but there's already a football pitch tagged there) amd also Manor Road itself (which presumably is asphalt rather than grass?

I did tell the on site ranger what ...
32016-11-28 20:27:42 UTCtrigpoint Thank you, walking them with a GPS is the best survey you can have. There is no need to justify what you have seen, unlike wikipedia we prefer original work.
12016-11-26 15:45:28 UTCtrigpoint I have fixed which you had dragged.
Cheers Phil
22016-11-28 12:11:30 UTCLE6Ram Thanks Phil. No idea what happened there.
Are you Phil from the Get Walking project?

12016-11-28 18:49:37 UTCtrigpoint The user did not respond, but I was able to see the path on bing imagery and have added it

22016-11-27 00:47:17 UTCvwJim Hi, yes its one of those small "pay toilets" that self clean etc. Ony slightly larger than a phone box.
32016-11-27 09:53:34 UTCtrigpoint Thank you
12016-11-26 19:41:32 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
It is helpful to other mappers if you keep changes to managable areas. Changes over an area this large are very difficult to follow.
Thanks Phil
12016-11-26 16:32:55 UTCtrigpoint Hi, is there really a toilet here?
It looks like a house on aerial imagery.
12016-11-26 16:09:28 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this should probably be tagged as a gallery rather than an artwork.
Cheers Phil
22016-11-26 16:32:09 UTCBCNorwich Agree, changed.
12016-11-26 16:05:34 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this would be better tagged as shop=farm, but probably doesn't offer that :)

52016-11-26 12:38:03 UTCSomeoneElse The address given in their edit checks out with their website - might be worth someone phoning the number on the website to ask if they added it themselves (and then explaining how to do it not in a car park) or if they paid someone else to do it, and if so who.

12016-11-25 14:08:59 UTCtrigpoint Hi, changing Tesco Express from amenity=fuel to a shelter looks very odd to me. Is there a good reason for that?
Cheers Phil
22016-11-25 14:32:09 UTCBCNorwich Sorry, I wanted to add the feature/area as a shelter but failed to realise I was removing the fuel tag from amenity.
Looking at it again shelter doesn't seem right anyway. Now found building=canopy, perfect.

22016-11-25 14:49:53 UTCJohn Grubb Well spotted! Heaven only knows what happened there - probably had that section selected and then, after a distraction of some sort, went and held down CTRL to pick other edits having panned the map to another area of interest. Oops...
12016-11-24 12:41:04 UTCtrigpoint Is this verifiable, i.e. if I walk down the street will I see a sign on the building and can customers visit to book an appointment?
22016-11-24 12:47:20 UTCptmaintenance We don't have a sign for our office. We book our customers via phone and email.
32016-11-24 13:08:03 UTCtrigpoint In that case there is nothing to map, OSM is not a business directory.
12016-11-23 18:32:10 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. There is no need to fill the name tag with what is a description.
We can see it is a postbox from its amenity tag.
Cheers Phil

Thank you for your additions, but they don't really look like they should be mapped as highway=pedestrian. That is for pedestrianised streets in town centres.
I would suggest that these should be mapped as highway=footway.

12016-11-21 12:52:54 UTCtrigpoint Hi, is this really a hotel? The name suggests self catering holiday cottages.

I am reverting this addition.
12016-11-17 18:43:45 UTCtrigpoint Hi, we normally tag Tesco Express as shop=convenience, supermarket is reserved for the larger ones that are subject to Sunday opening restrictions.
12016-11-17 17:13:49 UTCtrigpoint Hi, Berkley Mansions is already mapped as way, you have created a duplicate node in the middle of the road. I am removing this duplicate.

22016-11-18 00:25:10 UTCDr-Mx I've removed the node and added the postcode to the apartment building
12016-11-14 19:06:53 UTCtrigpoint Does the post office have an actual name?
22016-11-17 10:01:15 UTCPeterwhs I don't think so. It's just a Post Office. Maybe it's called a Royal Mail Post Office? Does it matter?
32016-11-17 12:47:15 UTCtrigpoint Post Offices always have a name, it will either be Raphael Street Post Office or maybe Knightsbridge Post Office. There is no point just putting Post Office in the name, we can see that from the symbol. It does matter, when a card is left saying there is something to collect it will need to say whic...
12016-11-15 19:07:50 UTCtrigpoint Hi, I assume the numbers you are adding are housenumbers.
These should not be put in the name, they should be put in the addr:housnumber tag.

22016-11-15 19:51:19 UTCJC49 These are not quite house numbers as the buildings are massive concrete bunkers. They don't have addresses as such.

Cheers, Jan
22016-11-12 14:56:29 UTCtrigpoint That looks like a typo, it should be adopted=no.
32016-11-13 14:22:08 UTCPaul Berry My mistake; thanks for correcting it, @mueschel.
12016-11-12 13:33:19 UTCtrigpoint Does this ATM have an operator, it is also unusual not to be associated with either a bank or a shop.
12016-11-12 13:30:40 UTCtrigpoint I doubt the name is really McDonald's Restaurant with Drive Thru. We simply use the name McDonald's. If it has a drive through, then we map that as a way. You need to use a proper PC based editor to do that. McDonalds is normally considered fast_food rather than a restaurant.
Cheers Phil
12016-11-12 13:22:46 UTCtrigpoint Again, this is not how you spell Barclays and I seriously doubt any of these ATMs are genuine. Please could you explain what you are trying to achieve.
12016-11-11 15:42:08 UTCtrigpoint Hi, your edits in London look a bit odd. I somehow doubt that there is an ATM in The Palace of Westminster and that the London community could have missed 10 ATMs.
I suspect that these are personal markers.
Please learn to spell Barclays.
12016-11-11 13:49:28 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Does this clothes shop have a name and I imagine it is one of the buildings and not in the middle of the road?
12016-11-10 19:12:40 UTCtrigpoint This looks very odd, are you sure there is a post office here. It is mapped as a farm and that what it looks like on bing imagery?
12016-11-06 18:37:21 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Features added to the OSM database must be factual and verifiable on the ground by any one. So this POI looks like it is a fiction.
It is in fact a Post Box address and as such should be removed.
22016-11-08 18:57:56 UTCtrigpoint Should we not just remove the spam, and tag it as a postbox. The shop could probably use a post office node too?
32016-11-08 20:52:30 UTCBCNorwich Agreed that makes sense. My information came from a web search so I'm not free to transfer that positional data. If you're happy please make the change.
12016-11-04 23:02:57 UTCtrigpoint Tagging a driving test centre as a police staion seems very odd, it should be tagged as office=government.
You will need to use a proper editor to make this change, please ask if you need help.
22016-11-08 18:53:34 UTCtrigpoint user did not respond, fixed tagging
12016-11-07 17:56:00 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Does this department store have a name?
12016-11-06 17:39:53 UTCtrigpoint If is a postbox, then it should be tagged amenity=postbox, there will be a ref on the plate. It will not have a postcode as it is not somewhere post is delivered to.
22016-11-06 17:49:12 UTCJim Thurston This is the postal address for The Maylands Mayl - The PostBox is where the mail is placed so that it doesn't get mixed up with the mail for the supermarket.
32016-11-06 18:27:47 UTCtrigpoint So is thete an office inside the supermarket building?
42016-11-06 18:47:20 UTCBCNorwich Hi, this is a Post Office Box presumably inside the post office not outside the building. From their website ( there is no office at the building.
12016-11-06 17:35:34 UTCtrigpoint H welcome to OSM

Please remember OSM is a map not a business directory, please cut out the SPAM comments. By all means map the shops, but leave your self promotion to yourself.

12016-11-05 00:28:05 UTCtrigpoint Hi, I pass every day and cannot recall any signs legally prohibiting HGVs. What is the source of this, remember access tags are meant to indicate the legallity, if you wish to tag suitability then lanes=1 or width = 2m are the way to go.
22016-11-05 08:38:25 UTCMike Baggaley Hi, I split this way from way 39207901 and did not define any of the tags whilst adding the Shropshire Way relation to parts of it. You may wish to look at the adjoining parts of Isombridge Lane and remove the hgv tag from those as well. I am not local so don't know the restrictions on it.

32016-11-05 09:38:30 UTCtrigpoint Sorry, should have dug a bit deeper. I can see the tag has been on the original way since forever. I will investigate.

Cheers Phil
12016-11-04 23:40:19 UTCtrigpoint This is a duplicate, the hotel was already mapped
12016-10-28 05:52:08 UTCBCNorwich Hello, I think you have positioned this property on the wrong side of the road (as far as the existing mapping of roads is concerned). It is not therefore verifiable on the ground as mapped.

12016-11-03 18:36:22 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
This edit looks a little odd, the name indicates that these should be bicycle_hire but I am not sure about these. There are others mapped nearby and it is unlikely that such things would be missing from the map. Do you have any more information?
22016-11-04 07:21:27 UTCBCNorwich I don't think 4478909590 exists, but there is a dock round the corner on Greenland Road.
The other two I've tagged similar to other cycle hire stations. If Lui_E98 would like to look at these and use this type of tagging it would concur with how other stations are mapped.
32016-11-04 11:54:44 UTCtrigpoint I am not convinced any exist, discussion on irc suggested that they are personal markers of some sort. Cycle hire is not something our London mappers generally miss.
I was planning to revert, just seeing if I can get a response from the user.
42016-11-04 14:09:11 UTCBCNorwich Nodes 4478899792 and 4478899791 are listed at the mapped position on the website :-

In order to add such detail you need to split the building into sections. Maps,me isn't up to such a task, you will need to use an OSM editor on you PC.

12016-10-23 14:08:31 UTCtrigpoint Hi, have you any more detail for
It looks a very odd location for a place that sells cars.
12016-10-22 12:28:10 UTCtrigpoint Welcome to OSM, I do not recall a hotel inside the cathedral last time I was in Edinburgh.
Please remember that OSM is a public database and should not be used for personal markers
12016-10-22 12:07:10 UTCtrigpoint This is an odd place for a viewpoint
12016-10-11 14:30:57 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
Are you sure that is really a tourist attraction?
Best regards,
22016-10-22 12:05:33 UTCtrigpoint I would imagine that the mosques you have mapped have actual names and are not simply called Mosque, you should add a religion tag to indicate that they are Mosques. I doubt that is in the middle of the road.
12016-10-17 15:56:46 UTCJarek Piórkowski Are these hostels open to the public, or are they places where your friends live that you've added for your own reference? The marks you've added are visible on the public page on, if it's just a friends' that might not be accurate.
22016-10-22 11:58:57 UTCtrigpoint I am reverting this, sixt car hire and Long Walk are already mapped.
12016-10-22 11:57:27 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to osm.
A cricket pitch is not generally considered a tourist attraction, we tag these as leisure=pitch, sport=cricket. Would you be able to change this? You will need to use iD from on your computer. It would also be useful if you could map it as an area rather than a node. In ...

12016-10-11 14:34:56 UTCSomeoneElse Hallo,
The website isn't correct here, surely?
You've added a link for the website for the chain, not this example of it.
Best Regards,
22016-10-11 22:37:32 UTCgtjack9 Each resteraunt does not have a unique website so I used the general McDonald's website/menu.
Is that ok?
32016-10-16 11:21:51 UTCSK53 Generally no OSM is not a directory of business services, so when websites are provided it should be directly related to the object itself. One of the more useful purposes of website/url tags is to enable other mappers to quickly verify information. A generic McDonald's url adds no information that ...
42016-10-16 15:40:35 UTCtrigpoint A similar issue to this has also caused problems in the past, somebody in Japan helpfully added starbucks wikipedia page to every outlet in Japan, which caused a nominatim search made anywhere in the world to return those ahead of local ones that the user actually wanted. Not sure if a website has ...

12016-10-12 17:33:34 UTCtrigpoint Welcome to OSM, thank you for your edit. I have tidied the node you had dragged on Lavender Hill and tidied the additional nodes to leave a single node for the CAB within the library.
12016-09-20 11:44:01 UTCtrigpoint Hi, does this guest house have a name/phone number? Also I doubt it is in the middle of the road, please can you put it in the right place?
22016-10-11 15:11:46 UTCSomeoneElse @trigpoint What's the next step here - remove or add a note?
32016-10-11 18:20:08 UTCtrigpoint I have removed it, the housing on bing imagery makes it look very unlikely that there would be a guest house in that area
12016-10-10 17:52:46 UTCtrigpoint The location of this cafe looks a bit odd, I would expect it to be in one of the buildings rather than on the pavement.
Cheers Phil
12016-10-10 16:59:04 UTCtrigpoint Please could you explain what you have done in this mass edit and where it was discussed.
It is a really nasty big edit that is too big to even analyse,
22016-10-10 17:15:09 UTCmaggot27 this add a space to maxspeed=40mph to make it maxspeed=40 mph
to comply with the standard format

This is the only change made to all nodes.
32016-10-10 17:23:49 UTCtrigpoint Whilst the space is something josm moans about, but what doesn't it moan about. In practice it really doesn't matter. OSM base tools, such as OSMand, has never cared if the space is there or not. Other tools certainly don't mind. Which tool has caused problems for you?
42016-10-10 19:55:54 UTCNakaner @trigpoint You might have a look at another discussion of maggot27's changesets.
12016-10-10 17:15:13 UTCtrigpoint What is in the place of Costcutter?
12016-10-10 16:31:15 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. This is a very odd name and location for a viewpoint, please could you explain?
12016-10-09 17:40:33 UTCtrigpoint Tesco is not spelt with a k, I am reverting this.
12016-10-09 17:24:29 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM, thank you for spotting this ommision. The correct way to tag a roundabout is junction=roundabout, rather than oneway=yes.
Keep on mapping, its great fun.
Thanks Phil
12016-10-09 08:11:00 UTCtrigpoint A court seems a very odd place for an ATM, please could you explain it?
12016-10-08 12:49:50 UTCtrigpoint Please can you explain this addition?
12016-10-08 11:31:18 UTCtrigpoint This looks to be a very odd place for an ATM, are you sure its not some sort of personal marker?
Please remember that OSM is a public database and somebody getting off the train and needing some cash for the races will not be please with you.
12016-10-08 11:28:25 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. These hotels look very odd, they all appear to be personal markers. Please could you explain this edit?
12016-10-07 19:04:08 UTCtrigpoint Hi
This appears to be a large mechanical edit, was it discussed anywhere.
What is your justification for this change, the wiki says waterway=riverbank is the correct way to tag riverbanks on large rivers.
22016-10-07 21:09:29 UTCDaveF What evidence makes you think it was "mechanical"?
32016-10-07 21:18:03 UTCtrigpoint It covers a large area, which makes me suspicious, howevet what is the justification for this change that goes against the wiki and changes the work of local mappers?
42016-10-07 21:18:37 UTCDaveF Why haven't you read the wiki fully?
52016-10-07 21:21:07 UTCDaveF It's a "large area" because it's the "longest river in the United Kingdom". Why do I have to explain that to you? You should be intelligent enough to work it out for yourself.
62016-10-07 21:32:01 UTCDaveF Do you look at the time a changeset is active before making unfounded accusations?
72016-10-07 21:33:08 UTCDaveF Do automated mechanical edits involve deletions mixed in with tag edits?
82016-10-07 21:37:13 UTCDaveF It appears you are unaware of P2's 'task' facility. Why is that?
92016-10-07 21:40:42 UTCDaveF You need to perform a such of the Tagging archive for 'Canal Banks' before replying further.
102016-10-07 21:52:17 UTCDaveF perform a *search
112016-10-07 22:37:33 UTCDaveF Do mechanical edits involve splitting polygons & rejoin them so they correctly abut their neighbour?
122016-10-07 22:40:20 UTCDaveF Do mechanical edits involve splitting polygons to remove sections to create separate objects which are part of a different entity?
12016-10-07 18:47:37 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM and thank you for the information.
I have added a bollard, please could you check it is correct.
Thanks Phil
12016-10-04 11:50:08 UTCtrigpoint Hi, is this work complete?
I keep seeing notes from Navmii users which indicate that what we have on the map is no longer what is on the ground.
That said there are no gps or strava traces indicating it is yet open.
Thanks Phil
22016-10-04 20:58:15 UTCRichardB Hi. I've not been down the A21 for about a year or so, so haven't seen for myself recent progress. I do believe, however, that the official opening date for this section is Spring 2017 - but equally it's likely that some sections may have recently been realigned before the full opening.
12016-10-02 15:57:35 UTCtrigpoint Hi
Something has gone very wrong here, you seem to have put the box back to how it was before redevelopment. You have removed 3 new roundabouts and put Coach Central back to oneway.
Please could you explain the reasons for this edit?
Thanks Phil
22016-10-02 16:00:47 UTCtrigpoint BTW The box, as it is now, is on mapillary.
32016-10-02 17:24:56 UTCtrigpoint I have reverted this change, mapbox imagery also shows the box as it now is.
12016-10-02 14:50:58 UTCtrigpoint Hi, just wondering what the source of your edits is?
Some of them seem a little odd, for example I don't recall Oakengates Road being a single lane road. From memory it is cerainly wide enough for two cars to pass.
Also seems unlikely to be highway=pedest...
22016-10-02 18:27:16 UTCdogmatic69 source: resident

changed the highway to footway, Changed the other one to a pvt alley. its for "residents" only, no reason for anyone to walk/ride a bike there.
12016-10-02 12:54:50 UTCtrigpoint I don't think the name of this museum is Belfast, reverting
12016-10-02 05:59:29 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
The positioning of this hotel POI, in the alley behind buildings, some way away fro the address of Romford Road, will not be much help in helping folk to find it. Better to actually draw the building and state the floor if the building has multiple businesses.
22016-10-02 12:08:14 UTCtrigpoint The name translates as house, which is an unlikely name for a hotel so I suspect this yet another personal marker edit from a user. Reverting this.
12016-10-02 12:04:15 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Please can you capitalize names correctly and not use lowercase.
12016-09-30 14:42:49 UTCtrigpoint Ikea isn't here, its already mapped in its correct location. It certainly isn't open 24/7.
12016-09-28 16:42:24 UTCtrigpoint Welcome to OSM, thank you for your addition but does this restaurant have a name? It is also more likely to be inside a building?
Please could you login to OSM and use iD to correct it.
12016-09-22 22:34:39 UTCtrigpoint This seems a very odd name for a bar, are you sure its not part of the hotel? Is it open to non-residents?
22016-09-28 11:48:09 UTCtrigpoint Mapper not responded so reverting
12016-09-26 08:44:30 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. This seems a very odd place to find a bus station. Are you sure it is here?
12016-09-26 07:19:15 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Has this pub, actually I assume its the hotel bar, really changed its name to Bedford. It looks a little odd.
12016-09-23 17:53:27 UTCtrigpoint Holland & Barrett is not normally considered to be a convienience shop, is this one somehow different? They are usually health food shops.
22016-09-24 09:26:19 UTCsampierce_ That's what I wanted, but there was no option to put it in that category when I created it for some reason!
32016-09-24 09:30:04 UTCtrigpoint No problem, I can update it.
42016-09-24 11:00:46 UTCtrigpoint Updated, thank you
52016-09-24 11:01:42 UTCsampierce_ Great, thanks
12016-09-22 22:30:50 UTCtrigpoint I am removing this toilet as it is a duplicate
22016-09-27 08:40:05 UTCmikemiee Apologies for duplicating this. Obviously did not see the original on the map I had on my phone.
12016-09-21 13:17:18 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to osm. Do you have a shop customers can visit here?
22016-09-21 18:18:11 UTCBCNorwich There's no shop, that address is the registered company office for an online wine seller.
12016-09-20 11:51:02 UTCtrigpoint HI, something has gone wrong here. The pub now has two names, not your fault as is very broken when it comes to name tags. Which name is correct?
22016-09-20 12:06:44 UTCJethro10 Ah I see what it's done. It's recently changed to The Spotted Pig, I've fixed it along with another one I did at the same time that's also wrong, The Tithe Barn a few miles away.
A shame that because is an excellent map product I use loads and do add quite a few things with it as well. Howe...
32016-09-20 12:08:37 UTCJethro10 Are you aware if it's actually been reported as a bug to
42016-09-20 12:20:31 UTCtrigpoint There is a bug reported
52016-09-20 12:23:12 UTCJethro10 Ah, well debated!
Anyhow, my two are fixed and I'll try and remember to avoid it in future.
12016-09-20 11:52:30 UTCtrigpoint HI, something has gone wrong here. The shop now has two names, not your fault as is very broken when it comes to name tags. Which name is correct?
22016-09-21 10:58:26 UTCtrisosaurus Hi, yeah i think i'll stick to making changes on OSM; it is now called 'Best One Local'
12016-09-20 11:46:41 UTCtrigpoint Is this shop really call Last Shop Before Ferries?
12016-09-19 16:45:54 UTCtrigpoint Please do not map personal markers
12016-09-19 16:43:20 UTCtrigpoint Does this hotel have a name?
12016-09-19 16:15:23 UTClostmike This looks like an error to me. Did you mean to add a new tag with the name in your language?
22016-09-19 16:41:47 UTCtrigpoint Reverting
12016-09-18 10:18:41 UTCtrigpoint Do yo have any more details for this charging station, it looks to be in an unusual place and we do need the type so that electric car users can find one that is suitable for their vehicle
12016-09-18 10:17:10 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Does this hostel have a name? It is also very unlikely to be in the middle of the road.
12016-09-17 16:06:05 UTCtrigpoint Are you sure this is a guest house, in a guest house I would expect someone to cook me breakfast.
22016-09-17 16:11:01 UTCAlan Streluk I can see your point and indeed I didn't want to put it as a guest house. Sadly to put a listing on OpenStreetMap you have to use one of their categories and they don't have a "Holiday Cottage" or "Holiday Rental" option. This was the nearest they offer... Sorry!
32016-09-17 16:14:48 UTCtrigpoint Thank you, I can fix the tagging. is really intended for mapping on the go and is very limited, You do need to use a proper computer to be able to edit OSM properly.
42016-09-17 16:18:46 UTCtrigpoint I have changed it to tourism=holiday_cottage
52016-09-17 16:19:04 UTCAlan Streluk Thanks for doing that! As for your comment about my "note" being spam, There was an "about" field in the interface so I thought it was for a description. I had no intention of adding spam. I just wanted to add a listing!
62016-09-17 16:42:00 UTCtrigpoint No problem, isn't the greatest osm editor.
12016-09-17 16:25:47 UTCtrigpoint More vandalism. Please remember that OSM is a public database used by many people, you have changed the name of a tesco to a personal marker. Please use the bookmarks function for that.
12016-09-17 14:35:00 UTCtrigpoint Starbucks is normally tagged as a cafe, cuisine=coffee. Is this one different?
12016-09-17 10:23:10 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Horse=no is a very odd tag to find on a bridleway, after all that is the point of them.
Also please do not copy from the definitive map, it is based on OS and is therefore copyright.
12016-09-16 12:16:24 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your contribution, however the Premier Inn is already mapped on the surrounding way, I am going to remove your duplicate.
When editing please capitalise names properly. Thanks
22016-09-16 18:30:53 UTCBCNorwich POI deleted before I saw the above comment.
Note also that the tag name:en=??? is not needed.
32016-09-17 09:30:36 UTCtrigpoint Sorry, I meant to delete the node when I got home.
The name:en problem is a feature of, not something the user has any control of.
12016-09-17 09:23:54 UTCtrigpoint Hi Andy
You have added a node for Lloyds Bank inside a building tagged as a Lloyds TSB.
It would be better if you can remove your node and update the name on the building as it has full address information.
Thanks Phil
12016-09-16 14:13:22 UTCtrigpoint I am reverting this, jot is not thew English name for Selfridges
12016-09-16 14:12:41 UTCtrigpoint Does this ATM have an operator that can be added? Also this is a residential street and hence is a very unusual place for an ATM.
12016-09-16 13:06:37 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this should be tagged as amenity=book_exchange. Tagging it as a bookshop is misleading to map users.
Please can you correct it and please capitalise words correctly. Thanks
22016-09-16 13:19:26 UTCJanetChapman Hi, I added this via as a test and where that wasn't an option so I have now deleted it.
12016-09-16 12:39:10 UTCtrigpoint I have removed the name node you added, as the name was already on the beach area way
12016-09-16 12:11:50 UTCtrigpoint Is really a guest house that is open to the public?
12016-09-15 18:58:16 UTCtrigpoint Has this shop really become a restaurant? If so please could you fix the tags, it is still tagged as a shop.
12016-09-15 18:55:02 UTCtrigpoint Does this guest house have a name/phone number?

12016-09-14 16:45:37 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. This edit has gone a little wrong, the mddle of an airport is a very odd place to find an ATM. What were you trying to achieve?
12016-09-10 13:14:50 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. I am just wondering what this is and what the source is?
It sounds very dodgy.
Descriptions do not belong in the name tag, I am hoping that it is something historic and is no longer operational Maybe historic=crow_trap?

I was asked by an "Against Corvid Traps" investigator to provide a bing map link with a flag showing the location of a crow trap I found and reported to them, and not wishing to sign up to bing, I decided to use OSM. Apologies if I've not followed protocol - if this typ...

It does look a very odd edit, it may be some sort of residential caravan site but looking at aerial imagery I really don't think its for tourists.
22016-09-11 20:18:55 UTCericthefish Yeah it was an odd edit sorry. I did mean to come back and add more info but I forgot. I stayed at this site recently. I'll add a name (Oaklands) and some more info.
12016-09-03 14:34:19 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I have corrected the spelling of your POI and removed the unneeded tag name:en=???.

B & M is usually tagged as a variety store, it is not really a supermarket.
Cheers Phil
22016-09-03 08:19:53 UTCSomeoneElse Actually - what sort of B&M is this? There's "B & M Bargains" (which is a classic "variety store") and the slightly more upmarket "B & M Home Store". That gets various tags, including "homewares": (but probably not really a supermarket).

You seem to have added 2 stations with no name. They are very close to Euston and Kings Cross so appear to be duplications.
What were you trying to achieve with this edit?.

22016-08-24 16:59:35 UTCtrigpoint No answer and they are clearly duplicates/wrong so reverting/
12016-08-22 18:39:59 UTCtrigpoint Hi, is really a post office?
It seems a very odd name, and there is a post office over the road. Actually I visited Kings Cross Post Office on the way to SOTM-EU
22016-08-22 23:58:13 UTCyourealwaysbe It's a good question. Doddle is a service to which you can have packages delivered and then pick them up (eg on the way home from work). I'm not 100% happy it's a post office, but i'm not sure what else to tag it, and post_office had been used elsewhere to tag Doddles. If there's a more accurate tag...
32016-08-23 01:38:32 UTCyourealwaysbe The description of post_office on the wiki seems appropriate, though it doesn't match the intuitive meaning in the uk.

There is one in Birmingham tagged parcel_collection_point, but googling for this doesn't turn up anything for me.
42016-08-23 16:31:32 UTCtrigpoint The description in the wiki is a bit like describing a supermarket as a place that sells baked beans:)
THis does look like it is tagging for the renderer and really isn't the understood meaning of a post office which does banking, passports, car tax and loads of other things. Somebody searching for...
52016-08-23 17:39:47 UTCyourealwaysbe I expect the wiki takes a more international view: Fedex and UPS seem to be generally tagged as post_office also. I think Doddle sits happily with these two (packages can be sent and received and there is a customer service desk). It is also the typical tagging of Doddle in the UK (admittedly n~=1...
62016-08-24 11:26:00 UTCSK53 I think basically in the UK tagging them as post_office is not accurate. The minimum I would expect from a post office is to be able to buy stamps & send letters, packets & parcels through International Postal Union members.

I would suggest amenity=parcel_service
72016-08-24 11:27:07 UTCSK53 Or possibly amenity=post_depot (but parcel services do not handle post (yet!))
82016-08-25 02:49:56 UTCyourealwaysbe amenity=parcel_service sounds good to me :)
12016-08-21 19:35:58 UTCtrigpoint Is this really a resturaunt, or even a take away that customers can visit? The website makes it look like it is delivery only.
12016-08-21 19:23:24 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. This seems a very odd place for a tourist attraction, can you give more detail?
12016-08-14 11:14:48 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
DOes this greengrocer have a name? Looking at the map, it seems to be in a very unlikely place for a shop.
Cheers Phil
22016-08-19 17:09:02 UTCtrigpoint No response from user and its already mapped as residential so I am reverting this very unlikely greengrocers
12016-07-30 10:30:37 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
You have added a shelter inside a shopping centre, that seems a very odd place to map a shelter. What were you trying to achieve/
22016-08-18 15:44:35 UTCtrigpoint No response from user so reverting unlikely edit
12016-08-17 16:31:31 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
Thank you for you addition but what is here now? Looking at bing imagery I am guessing it should probably be tagged as leisure=park.
Cheers Phil
12016-08-14 11:30:14 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this edit seems to have created a duplicate campsite. Was that really your intention?
Cheers Phil
12016-08-10 18:54:06 UTCtrigpoint Is this shop really called Polish Delicatessen, it sounds more like a description than a name.
Please also capitalise the names, lower case looks wrong on a map.
Thanks Phil
12016-08-10 12:01:13 UTCtrigpoint Has Viva really become a Costa?
If it has it should no longer be tagged as a restaurant but as a cafe with cuisine=coffee.
Cheers Phil
22016-08-10 12:14:16 UTCEdLoach Also, has "The Filling Station" become "Beatles" - the FHRS data extract from yesterday suggests not?
32016-08-10 12:27:49 UTCDerick Rethans Phil, doesn't allow you to change category ...
42016-08-10 15:10:35 UTCKenneth Gafa Sorry but I do not have an idea about "The Filling Station"
52016-08-10 15:23:40 UTCtrigpoint Hi Kenneth, was there a fast food place called Beatles when you were in Liverpool?
Have you some more details if so?
Cheers Phil
62016-08-10 15:29:13 UTCKenneth Gafa Trigpoint, I do not recall such a place but in Liverpool The Beatles are mentioned at every corner. When I was there I ate at Nando's and TGI.
72016-08-15 13:01:02 UTCSomeoneElse It's already been changed back, but I'm pretty sure The Filling Station was still called that when I walked past it a couple of months ago.
12016-08-08 14:01:49 UTCtrigpoint Hi Mike
Something seems to have gone a bit, you seem to have removed the.ways from this through route relation.
What.were you trying to achieve or what did you see wrong here?
Cheers Phil
22016-08-08 16:57:01 UTCMike Baggaley Hi Phil, my understanding of the through_route relation is that it should have two ways and one common node to indicate the normal way ahead. This relation had more that two ways connected to it and was causing warnings to be generated in a process I use based on the OSM data. I was going to try to ...
32016-08-08 20:36:27 UTCtrigpoint Thank you for your reply Mike.
The number of ways had increased, caused by adding speed limits.
Had not realised the proposal had been rejected, although it is important and should be revived at some point. I am quite surprised by the lack of understanding in some of the comments, these junctions ...
12016-08-06 18:36:19 UTCtrigpoint Reverted rubbish added to name
12016-08-06 17:45:25 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. From your edit I assume Brantano has closed? Poundworld is normally tagged as a shop=variety.
Cheers Phil
22016-08-06 21:06:47 UTCmaroubal2 Thanks Phil. Yes, it's closed. Couldn't seem to change the category within MAPS.ME. Will trying using other editors.
12016-08-05 07:02:04 UTCBCNorwich Hi and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.

The website you posted for the restaurant is no valid so I have removed it.
22016-08-05 15:49:34 UTCtrigpoint The website which this changeset removed, does appear to be valid.
32016-08-05 15:49:50 UTCtrigpoint
42016-08-05 17:50:27 UTCBCNorwich But apparently the restaurant is now under new ownership and a new name.
12016-08-05 02:50:23 UTCCloCkWeRX Strava users report way 345760205 is just farmland now, imagery tends to concur. Can you resurvey and perhaps add notes to it to reflect whats on the ground?
22016-08-05 15:38:02 UTCtrigpoint Historic OS 1-25k mapping shows a PROW on this line, unless it has been legally extinguished it should not be removed.
There is a legal right to walk a PROW irrespective of condition.

12016-08-02 20:38:50 UTCtrigpoint Hi, is cafe the right tag here? craft=btewery would seem more appropriate
22016-08-02 20:49:30 UTCVincent Vandalon True, I did this from Maps.Me which is not the greatest tool (it did not give me).

Thanks for noticing, there was a chance that I did not get back around to changing this after my trip if you hadn't reviewed it.
12016-08-01 17:16:08 UTCtrigpoint Hi Brian
Please could you split your changesets into smaller areas. Large areas such as this make it difficult for the community to see what has changed in their areas of interest.
Thanks Phil
12016-07-29 14:56:47 UTCBCNorwich Hi, this node is where the footway (Rupert Court) joins with the street (Rupert Street). There in no restaurant in the middle of the street so I will remove it.
If you know where the restaurant is sited please add the POI at that position.
22016-07-30 10:54:38 UTCtrigpoint Looking at the users other edits notes/edits this is a personal marker of where a tourist coach should stop.
I think this should be reverted.
32016-07-30 11:04:46 UTCMike Cahill Well spotted trigpoint....I am a 'tour coach driver' and the flag is for me and my fellow drivers to navigate to that point!
42016-07-30 11:27:07 UTCtrigpoint Is there anything verifiable in these locations, some sort of rule you need to follow?
Although it is clearly wrong to map this as a restaurant it could be a bus stop with some appropiate tags that ensure a normal map user wont walk there to try to catch a normal bus.
52016-08-01 11:48:14 UTCtrigpoint Hi Mike, please could you answer my question?
OSM is a collaborative project and we all need to work as a community. As these edits stand, they are misleading to other map users and need to be corrected, or removed.
If these are official places or marked in some way then they can be tagged accordi...
12016-07-31 20:06:19 UTCtrigpoint Hi
Just wondering what your source was for this change? Did you visit Chirk at some point?
Cheers Phil
12016-07-30 13:51:46 UTCtrigpoint Again, please could you explain this edit?
12016-07-30 13:22:59 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Please could you explain this addition, a shelter inside a building is very improbable, wlan doubly so.
12016-07-30 11:00:23 UTCtrigpoint Is there really a bus stop here? It seems unlikely that it would have been missed by the London mappers.
12016-07-29 09:18:36 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
Thank you for your addition, however Madame Tussauds is already mapped.
You have created a duplicate node which should be removed.
22016-07-29 09:27:55 UTCDerick Rethans Reverted.
12016-07-28 14:02:58 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.

Please could you provide some more information, like what its the site of.

12016-07-28 11:59:37 UTCtrigpoint Hi, something has gone wrong here. You have placed a campsite node in the middle of a road in a built up area. It seems unlikely there is a campsite here. If one does exist, please add it as an area in the correct location.
I am reverting this change
12016-07-28 11:56:01 UTCtrigpoint Hi, something has gone wrong here.

12016-07-27 12:04:24 UTCtrigpoint Hi, you created a guest house here last week, is there any reason you have created a 2nd with the same name?
22016-07-27 18:49:28 UTCMartin Escardo It was probably a mistake because it was the first time I tried to do this in openstreetmap. Apologies and sorry for the inconvenience.
12016-07-26 18:44:52 UTCtrigpoint Hi welcome to OSM. Thank you for your change.
Please remember that osm is a community so please make your changeset comments meaningful and explain what you are changing.
#Accenture #ACCNLDN is completely meaningless.
12016-07-26 18:03:00 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your addition of a bus route.
Bus routes are not tagged as separate ways, however. We map bus routes as relations, if you go onto the transport layer you will see some examples.
Ask if you need any assistance.

12016-07-26 06:33:20 UTCpoornibadrinath Hi Mario330,
I came across your edits and you have added a Casino POI in the middle of a residential area, where it is highly unlikely for a casino to be built or permitted a license. I was just curious whether you were trying to mark a gaming arcade or your house. Can you please let me know why ...
22016-07-26 11:54:24 UTCtrigpoint I have reverted this, it is a very typical edit where personal annotations are added to the map. The user probably has no idea he was editing OSM.
As you have said this is a residential area and there is zero chance of a casino being allowed here.
12016-07-22 13:58:38 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Something has gone a little wrong with this change.

You have changed the name of Burnhervie to be a farmhouse. Please remember that OSM is a public database and edits made with update OSM.

I am reverting this part of the changeset
12016-07-21 16:45:13 UTCtrigpoint Hi, I think this edit has gone a little wrong. There is no building here so it doesn't really belong in OSM, we map what exists now.
Things like this may belong in openhistoricalmap.
Cheers Phil
12016-07-20 17:10:12 UTCtrigpoint OSM is a public database, please do not abuse it by adding personal markers.
I am reverting this
12016-07-20 17:06:29 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. This edit is a little odd, alpine huts are really rare in Birmingham.
The name seems to translate as Macka's House which makes it look like a personal marker.
Please remember that OSM is a public database and should not be used in this way.
I am reverting this.
12016-07-15 15:17:52 UTCtrigpoint Hi welcome to OSM, thank you for your contribution but please could you explain what you are trying to do?
You have created a supermarket, with a very odd name that is outside already mapped buildings. Has tesco express changed hands?
22016-07-20 16:59:11 UTCtrigpoint No response and seems unlikely as its on the pavement with a nearby Tesco Express, reverting this

12016-07-18 17:01:39 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
This edit has gone a little wrong, the name of the village is Ashurst. The name does not include a postcode. Postcodes belong on premises to which mail is delivered.
I am going to revert this.
12016-07-17 15:16:43 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. I am assuming that there isn't a postbox here but a bollard. Please could you confirm?

Thanks Phil
12016-07-13 09:04:57 UTCtrigpoint Welcome to OSM.
Something has gone a little wrong here, osm is a public database to which we add only things that exist in the real world and can be verified by others.
Personal markers should not be added, if for example you had lunch at a picnic table, you can add that.
12016-07-13 08:44:26 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
Thank you for your addition, however the Romanian Embassy is already mapped as a building, so now there are two embassies shown.

12016-07-10 08:53:50 UTCtrigpoint Again, why have yo changed these speed limits. In the UK they are signed in mph, and if they were to be converted to kph, I doubt they would produce a sign saying 161kph.

By removing these tags, you wreck the University of Cambridge's online map, so we propose to put them back in. If you don't like this, perhaps we can have a discussion about it, but in the meantime, we need our map back!
22016-07-06 16:53:19 UTCtrigpoint That sounds like you are tagging for the renderer.
32016-07-06 16:59:19 UTCdavidearl Not at all: tagging for the renderer is where you tag something to make it appear the way you want on some particular renderer.

42016-07-11 09:40:21 UTCEoghanM The tag `operator=University of Cambridge` is the correct way to indicate that a node is part of another institution. `amenity=university` is a much more major thing to signify that there is (the centre of) a significant university here.

142016-07-11 16:21:12 UTCEoghanM A good rule of thumb about 'what is a university' i.e. what should be tagged with `amenity=university` would be to look at the list of campuses/sites/colleges at

So for Douglas House, it should be tagged if ...

12016-07-01 19:06:33 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. This change has gone a little wrong, Madame Tussaud is already mapped. I am going to remove this node.
22016-07-01 19:08:17 UTCrene78 I was quicker :)
12016-06-27 06:05:38 UTCtrigpoint HI
When were the tracks re-layed into platforms 1 & 2?
According to the wiki railway=disused means the track is still present meaning this change has gone a little wrong.
Please revert this change as it is now incorrect.
22016-06-29 21:25:30 UTCtrigpoint No response and I know thete ae no tracks so reverted
12016-06-29 18:07:23 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Wild camping locations are not verifiable and are no more than personal notes. Please remember osm is a public database and calling these campsites is very misleading to other users of the database
12016-06-29 17:37:53 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
This edit seems a little odd, you have mapped am artwork but called it car and metal recyclers, which is correct?
12016-06-28 10:04:52 UTCtrigpoint Was adding a garden centre in the middle of the road intentional?
22016-06-28 12:30:43 UTCwille I just deleted it, It was an error. Thanks for the alert!
12016-06-28 09:15:17 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
Please remember that this is a public database and should not be used for personal POIs.
Please keep adding genuine verifiable POI, but please use genuine tags and do not mistag.
I am removing this as it is not a hotel and does not belong in OSM
12016-06-28 08:54:39 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. I am sure your business isn't in the middle of the road. Please remove and add in its correct position providing it is signed and therefore verifable.
Please drop the spam comments and description, OSM is a map not a business directory or a place to get free advertising.
22016-06-28 09:01:53 UTCtrigpoint Reverted, same address as garden service so clearly an attempt at gaining free advertising
12016-06-28 09:00:29 UTCtrigpoint Reverted as this is spam
12016-06-28 08:47:52 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
Something has gone a little wrong here, I am sure this business isn't in the middle of the road, but is in one of the already drawn buildings. Please can you move it to its correct location or indicate where it is.
12016-06-26 20:19:05 UTCtrigpoint I am fairly certain that this sandwich shop does not have a chinese name displayed.
I am reverting this
12016-06-24 19:00:50 UTCEoghanM The changeset says 'add district/suburb' but Bounds Green suburb seems to be the only thing removed. Was this accidental?
22016-06-26 11:38:45 UTCcrossmyloof yes, forgot to change my reason - it should have been 'delete non-existent district'
32016-06-26 12:09:40 UTCtrigpoint I had heard of Bounds, I had family there when I was young and according to wikipedia ( ) it exists. What evidence do you have to suggest otherwise?
42016-06-26 12:59:19 UTCtrigpoint Sorry, I meant Bounds Green
52016-06-26 15:10:30 UTCSomeoneElse @crossmyloof what was your source that it doesn't exist?
62016-06-26 17:03:29 UTCcrossmyloof There is a road called Bounds Green Road but there is no evidence I can find that the area was ever called anything other than Wood Green or Bowes Park
72016-06-26 17:26:17 UTCtrigpoint @crossmyloof Have you actually visited the area and asked? I certainly had relatives who lived in Bounds Green.
82016-06-26 17:43:08 UTCcrossmyloof I don't believe that places/districts/suburbs etc., should be named based on anecdotal evidence.
92016-06-27 13:22:17 UTCEoghanM I'd say @trigpoint meant that the fact that he knows of relatives living there, is grounds for further investigation, rather than grounds for restoring the suburb!
Maybe it should be mapped as a locality or neighbourhood rather than suburb? I certainly have no local knowledge. At the moment the map...

112016-06-27 16:11:07 UTCEoghanM Ya, and the road 'Bounds Green Road', so with the current situation, both of these could be taken to 'belong to' the railway station; but I don't think that's the case, ergo we should have another 'Bounds Green' entity.
12016-06-23 08:27:15 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. I am a little confused by your edit. Please could you explain what type of attraction Laura is?
12016-06-22 12:00:52 UTCtrigpoint Please remember that OSM is a public database and you should not add personal features.
I am reverting this changeset
12016-06-12 16:56:21 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your addition, however does this guest house have a name/phone number/website?
Somebody looking at the map will need a means of making a booking.
22016-06-21 11:59:10 UTCtrigpoint No response from mapper and aerial imagery makes this unbelievable as a location for a guest house, reverting
12016-06-21 11:55:32 UTCtrigpoint I have removed this as bing imagery suggests there is no campsite here
12016-06-20 14:17:14 UTCPierZen Where did you took your infos before mapping? This look like more like spamming. Please only add features that exist to OpenStreetMap.

I cannot comment for the club near Liverpool.

22016-06-20 14:44:31 UTCPierZen Sorry, wrong position with my navigator.

32016-06-20 15:42:35 UTCSzabolcs Nyikó Sorry, not sure what's happening.
I only added the Kitesurfing school in Rhyl, North Wales.
No idea how the embassy got linked to my account.
42016-06-20 16:42:25 UTCtrigpoint The edit has gone a little wrong, the kite surfing school tag has been added to an existing monument that isn't right.
Does it have a building somewhere?
52016-06-21 11:45:08 UTCtrigpoint I am reverting this change, please add the kitesurfing school in its correct location.

12016-06-14 18:14:10 UTCtrigpoint Hi, have you visited and surveyed this shop?
You seem to have changed it from a convenience to supermarket, why?
This is a generally regarded as a convenience store by local mappers.
22016-06-15 05:37:51 UTCBoswachter Yes I've visited this shop. I agree that it's a point of discussion, whether it's a convenience store or a supermarket. Mostly I did it because I find it rather annoying that a shop of this scale is not found on OpenFietsMap as a supermarket.
Ouch, thats mapping for the renderer. It is a problem w...
32016-06-15 09:26:42 UTCSomeoneElse Additionally I'd suggest to the style maintainer of the Garmin map style that you are using that convenience stores are pretty useful things for cyclists!

You can, of course, create your own Garmin maps and include as many features as you like.
42016-06-15 12:06:13 UTCtrigpoint I am going to revert this change, it very definitely fits the convenience criteria as defined in
Whilst the Tesco Express, Sainburys Local brands provide for easy distigushment Co-ops are less easy, Sunday opening hours do provide a helpful clue.
12016-06-14 17:58:44 UTCtrigpoint I have removed the access=permissive tags as they should not be used on a public highway and are causing routing errors
12016-06-14 17:17:42 UTCtrigpoint Hi again, this seem to have gone even more wrong, you have now deleted the bridleway completely and it now needs to be restored.
22016-06-14 17:54:46 UTCtrigpoint The way needed to be split and the sections changed to allow routing along the tarmac sections to the farms at each end.
The centre section is a mix of track and bridleway and is important to other map users.
I have fixed these in so routing will no...
12016-06-14 10:05:12 UTCtrigpoint Something has gone very wrong here, your changes have broken routing along The Fosse Way, we are now getting error reports A trunk road should never be access=permissive.
Please can you explain what you were trying to achieve and revert this change asap.
Thank Phil
12016-06-14 10:00:24 UTCtrigpoint Hi, please can you explain this change. It doesn't look like an unclassified road on bing imagery, more a track. I would not want to be directed this way in my car.
22016-06-14 17:09:36 UTCTashia-traveline Gloucester thanks for this - was putting a road in for a school bus service and must of got distracted - have now deleted this 'road' and added the correct access road
12016-06-13 14:54:24 UTCtrigpoint This seems an odd name for a guest house , any more details, phone/web address
12016-06-10 10:24:38 UTCchillly Is this a mech edit?

Association football in the UK is NOT soccer, it is football, and yes I'm sure you're going to quote the wiki at me, but it is NOT soccer in British English.
22016-06-10 21:59:24 UTCWarin61 No, fully manual. I have found some to be tennis/netball/basketball courts. One was both rugby and soccer. Where I could not identify what sport was/is played there I left a fixme. Each and every pitch has been looked at using my eyes using Bing imagery. I have missed some! What do you expect of a ...

soccer - British English

52016-06-11 10:44:49 UTCSomeoneElse For the record, "soccer" is _not_ the regular British English term for the sport you're trying to tag here, "football" is.

There are however cases where OSM has adopted an americanism (e.g. sidewalk) in order to avoid confusion; that may make sense here (but some prior discussion and a heads-up...
62016-06-11 14:44:01 UTCSomeoneElse On further investigation (going through all the tag changes in here), I've reverted this for the reasons described above and in . Far more tag changes made things "more wrong" rather than just "differently wrong" or correct" A large number of items d...
12016-06-10 16:49:47 UTCtrigpoint Are you sure this is correct, aerial imagery suggests these are residential streets and is therefore an unlikely place for a bar.
12016-06-09 16:54:12 UTCtrigpoint Hi, you have created a duplicate node for Whitwell, it has existed for a very long time,
I am going to remove this duplicate, along with the name from the landuse.
12016-06-09 16:47:47 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
This change has gone a little wrong, there is already a node for Whitwell on OSM so it displays perfectly well on OSM . We do not tag residential landuse with the name and certainly not add the county to the name.
I have never seen maps on facebook, so don't know what you were ...
22016-06-10 08:28:22 UTCSomeoneElse Is the "twinned with Paris" sign still there?
12016-06-08 07:29:54 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Do you have any more details for this campsite as it seems to be in a very odd place?
12016-06-06 20:06:11 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
Thank you for your edit, just one small thing we tag closed pubs as disused:amenity=pub rather than just changing the name. This prevents them rendering and stops routing software from directing you to one.
If you need any help just ask.
Cheers Phil
12016-06-05 19:21:55 UTCtrigpoint Hi, you seem to have created an isolated way which is going to show up as a problem on QA tools.
What was the source of this service road and should it not be connected to something?
12016-06-03 07:21:44 UTCtrigpoint Hi, are you sure this is genuine?
Would a company really expect its employees to stay in a hostel?
Looked like a personal marker to me, does seem to generate them quite frequently.
22016-06-03 10:20:20 UTCBCNorwich Hi, I could not see anything to suggest a fiction. The building name and street exist, it's actually a small block of flats, the research center is not to far away. So give the benefit of any doubt?
32016-06-03 11:23:16 UTCSomeoneElse There's been at least one example (in France) of people "spoofing" armchair mappers into adding inaccurate POIs based on notes. might be entirely genuine, but a genuine local mapper would be able to (a) check that it was, (b) check whether "hostel" really w...

Could you clarify what you've amended in this Changeset please?
22016-06-01 16:11:17 UTCAlan Trick Hmm, It looks like I made a mistake. I thought a hedge was supposed to be a closed polygon. I was trying to work on an error identified by but either I got the wrong error or "to-fix" is wrong. I'll revert the edit.

42016-06-01 17:12:35 UTCDaveF Thanks
52016-06-01 21:47:25 UTCtrigpoint A hedge is a linear barrier, there is no rule that they should be closed. A gap is perfectly normal .
Please remember that QA tools can consider things as errors, when they are correct and as intended.
12016-06-01 09:54:06 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.

12016-05-31 13:18:03 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.

12016-05-31 13:32:36 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
I somehow doubt that the Alleyway is named as such, it seems more of a description. You should leave the name tag empty if there is no verifiable sign present, I know editors do tend to prompt for things to be added which can confuse a new mapper.
Cheers Phil
12016-05-31 01:54:29 UTCDeanna Earley Is there any more evidence of this roundabout other than the note?
Bing and Mapbox don't show anything, and no traces go around it.
22016-05-31 05:51:16 UTCtrigpoint There is strava cycling heatmap evidence, which I have used to get the size/position.
No idea where the other roads off it are, but would guess there may be development to the north.
12016-05-28 11:07:07 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
Please can you explain why you have deleted a service road, that is clearly visible on satellite imagery?
12016-05-26 22:41:18 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.

That looks better, you can add the following tags to complete the information if you wish

Cheers Phil
42016-05-25 17:17:38 UTCtrigpoint BTW
You will not always find the tags you need as editor presets but you can type in your own.
12016-05-24 19:07:19 UTCtrigpoint E roads are not signposted in the UK, there is little point on a island where ferry/shuttle prices/schedules are far more important than E numbers.
We do not add int_ref to roads for this reason however the E13 is mapped as a relation making these additions unnecessary,
Cheers Phil
22016-05-25 10:07:06 UTCtrigpoint Please could you point me to where these routes are verifiable in the UK.

12016-05-24 16:35:01 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
I assume the path still exists, so should really not be deleted as it is still useful for navigation.
In this case the foot=permissive tag should simply be removed. The access=private will do the rest.
Do you need any help restoring it?
Cheers Phil
22016-05-26 12:52:36 UTCGrezzoR Thanks.

The path is still there, but it has been blocked in various places. Should this still not be removed?

This seems to have gone wrong a little, it is very unusual for a postbox to have a name. Are you sure thats what you intended, although your changeset comment seems to confirm it was.
If you need any help fixing this, just ask.

The Me Hotel is already mapped, although only as a restaurant and the node you placed is on the pavement outside the building. It would be good if you could add the hotel tag to the existing way and remove the node.
Also is the supermarket really called Tecko, should it possibl...

I have commented on one of you changesets on this same issue before, but you did not respond.
Please keep your changes to sensible areas, close and start a new changeset for each area, for example this one should be a minimum of four separate changesets.
Large areas such as this make review by...

32016-05-08 09:41:25 UTCSomeoneElse Please don't just say "I'll be more careful" and then just carry on as normal the very next day, as you did in .

If you're connecting two roads, such as and in thi...

52016-07-15 17:51:04 UTCdannykath Hello Andy, It could happen because I had internet connection issues yesterday.
12016-05-02 12:56:01 UTCP65084849 Bridleway is not used by route engine which creates silly results.

Would therefore suggest to change type to footpath and select access for horses.
22016-05-02 22:14:27 UTCtrigpoint That would be tagging for the renderer, or in this case for the router.
If routers are unable to handle a standard highway type then they are broken and you should raise a bug report against the router.
12016-04-29 16:02:09 UTCtrigpoint Hi, something has gone wrong with this edit.
You seem to have deleted the cul-de-sac spur which is obviously wrong.
The road had been drawn incorrectly with overlapping ways, but that should have been fixed rather than simply making the bug report go away.
Please revert your changes and fix the p...
22016-04-29 17:08:27 UTCLuis36995 Hi Phil

the change was made, thank you for your feedback
32016-04-29 17:14:27 UTCtrigpoint Thank you, however you now need to fix the original problem of the overlapping ways.
Thanks Phil
42016-04-29 17:48:21 UTCLuis36995 Done!
52016-04-29 18:17:12 UTCtrigpoint Thank you
12016-04-29 16:07:42 UTCtrigpoint Please keep your changes within sensible areas, large areas such as this make peer review by local mapper very difficult.
Thanks Phil

12016-04-22 13:57:28 UTCtrigpoint Hi, does this path really just end with no connectivity to to other ways?
Cheers Phil
22016-04-22 14:59:09 UTCNigel Packer Hi Phil
Yes the pathway continues further on right up to the B4555 in fact. It goes up past the back of the Severn Centre.
I cant make out the exact route as the satellite image is not good I just see the tops of the trees. I need to walk it to be sure.
This part of the footpath goes past the fro...

As long as you can get the road connections correct(ish) you could add it in roughly, with a fixme tag and then improve it when you can.
Cheers Phil
