12018-10-03 16:02:16 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi Dan, careful when adding possessive apostrophes - it's Piries Place on the ground, not Pirie's.
22018-10-03 18:52:20 UTCDanGregory Hi Matt, Always careful me. It may be Piries on the ground, but sadly signwriters have been known to be wrong too. In this case it is named after local headmaster and landowner William Pirie (him with the donkey cart), and therefore merits a possessive apostrophe. There was only one of him, so there...
12018-09-30 21:14:51 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi Jake, highway=service doesn't prohibit public access to the estate by itself (that's what access=* tags are for). This road is a dead end only used to access the businesses, so highway=service seems appropriate to me.

Published using OSMCha: https://osm...
22018-09-30 21:38:31 UTCJake's Cars service road - noun
a subsidiary road running parallel to a main road and giving access to houses, shops, or businesses.
This road stands alone and being a dead end is not cause to type as service.
Therefore, I disagree with your ruling.
If you wish, driveway would be more appropriate than servi...
32018-09-30 21:50:49 UTCmatt_twam_asi Thanks for replying so quickly. The dictionary definition is a little misleading with regards to OSM data and sounds to me like it's describing a frontage road:

12018-05-18 11:41:27 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi Dave, I'm not sure about the name 'muddy cut through' for way 85621725. That's more of a description (albeit an accurate one!)

Is it a local name for the path? If so then loc_name would be more appropriate.
22018-05-18 15:53:52 UTCdaveemtb Fair comment, feel free to amend! :)
32018-05-18 20:54:37 UTCmatt_twam_asi Done, thanks. :)
12018-04-10 16:15:15 UTClakedistrict Did you mean to tag this changeset review_requested=yes? It looks fine to me :)
22018-04-10 21:32:12 UTCmatt_twam_asi Thanks for looking, yes I tagged this with a review_requested for a couple of reasons. Firstly I was doing it from memory (although I just noticed I put source=survey, oops) and couldn't remember the exact geometry of Dunelm and TK Maxx (I happened to have the chance to survey it a couple of days la...
32018-04-10 21:45:18 UTClakedistrict From what I remember TK Maxx goes quite far back (probably further than what's mapped) but in terms of tagging it all looks OK.
12018-02-25 23:24:58 UTClakedistrict Thanks Matt! I never did a proper survey of Swan Walk when I did the other streets in 2016 so thanks for this. I also missed out Middle Street and some of Carfax so if you get the chance to survey them too that would be great. :)
22018-03-20 21:51:13 UTCmatt_twam_asi No problem, I don't usually have the time to do a full survey but I'm filling in details and updating features from memory when I notice them. :)
12018-02-24 22:02:26 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi Phill, thanks again for the continued updates. Just a tip with the construction area in this changeset - it's a good general rule of thumb to avoid linking areas and ways together like you have done here:
12018-02-20 23:50:18 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi Phill, thanks for your recent edits. Just to let you know that you joined way 562741029 to part of the North Horsham admin boundary ( instead of Redkiln Way. I've fixed this in changeset 56535280.
22018-02-21 13:03:52 UTCPhill87 Hi,
Thanks for highlighting & correcting my error.
Fingers crossed you wont find any others :)
12018-02-09 21:40:17 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi Dave, is the ice rink now back to being a volleyball court? If the ice rink is only open for a limited time each year it would be better to use a seasonal=* tag (or something similar)
22018-02-09 21:43:05 UTCmatt_twam_asi Thinking about it, opening_hours would probably be better.
12018-02-08 21:20:12 UTCmatt_twam_asi Welcome to OpenStreetMap. Does this lake really exist?

12018-01-22 22:23:40 UTCmatt_twam_asi Nice, thanks!
22018-01-23 20:18:44 UTCbelugabob matt_twam_asi - i have a question, that you may be able to answer.

The changes that I made seem to be only visible at certain zoom levels, with the origial path still being shown when zoomed out a little further - see these two links...
32018-01-23 20:51:12 UTCmatt_twam_asi You only have to make the changes once - the different zoom levels render at different times. The full technical explanation is pretty long and I'm no expert on it, so I won't be able to help ;-) but the changes will show up eventually. It's unlikely to take more than a few days.
42018-01-23 21:32:10 UTCbelugabob Ok, that kind of makes sense, thanks.

Will give it a while.
12018-01-22 21:21:01 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi belugabob, and welcome to Openstreetmap! Your edit looks good to me, thanks for updating the map with the new layout.

The only improvement I'd make is that you have split the cycleway up into three parts for what seems to be no reason (I'm happy to be corrected!) - ways 235219134; 554875249 an...
22018-01-22 21:33:15 UTCbelugabob Thanks for the feedback, Matt.
I appreciate any input that you may want to offer, as I'm just feeling my way, at the moment.
I did realise that I'd split the track, after I'd submitted the changes, but decided that I'd see what feedback resulted from that change, before going further. I'll pop bac...
12018-01-14 22:30:30 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi Dan, did you mean to remove ways 540057208 and 540057209? They were mapped recently by michaelinredhill so I would be surprised if the waterways didn't exist any more.
22018-01-18 12:11:17 UTCmatt_twam_asi No response so I've undeleted them in changeset 55548041.
12018-01-14 22:34:39 UTCmatt_twam_asi Thanks pcbbc, and welcome to OpenStreetMap!

12017-12-23 22:12:14 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi Davezilla, and welcome to Openstreetmap.

Thanks for your edits to Horsham. Just letting you know that I've undeleted node 558647746 as it had address information which I would assume is still correct - let me know if that's not the case. I've marked the restaurant (Sanmae) as disused.
12017-12-05 20:52:16 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi, did you mean to delete the residential way 22814436 around Horley?
22017-12-07 20:41:52 UTCmatt_twam_asi No response so the residential area has been undeleted in changeset 54442530.
12017-12-06 22:02:28 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi Mike,

I've carried out a bit more work on these three buildings (changeset 54415729 if you want to check)
- Added smoking=yes to way 544250782 from the node that was deleted in this changeset.
- Merged the Andrew Lyons node into way 544250762.
- changed ways 544250762 and 70007760 to buildi...
22017-12-07 08:31:04 UTCMike Baggaley Excellent, looks good to me!
12017-09-16 19:32:44 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi ─░brahim Yurdakul ,

Thanks for adding this information to the map. You've added the CAA node twice - I guess this may be a issue? Also you could add the information directly to the building ( rather than creating additional nodes.

12017-06-16 21:03:04 UTCSomeoneElse Hi, is tagged as "historic=f". I guess that this is a typo for something?
Best Regards,
22017-08-29 21:25:23 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi,
Also, has source:designarion. Is this also a typo?

32017-08-30 13:55:16 UTCmatt_twam_asi Sorry, not to the west. I meant to the east. I knew I'd fall foul of Muphry's Law.
12017-08-20 19:12:16 UTCmatt_twam_asi Thanks, I've added a fixme and will re-survey when I next pass by.
12017-08-19 11:22:05 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hello Dave, thank you for your contributions and welcome to OpenStreetMap.

Regarding the bus stop (node 5041516821) - there is an existing bus stop just to the south on the northbound side of Bury Road. Is there more than one bus stop going north? If not I'd suggest editing the existing node rat...
12017-08-16 22:37:56 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi Rikki, do the footpaths follow the path of the service roads mapped in this changeset or are they actually separate?
12017-08-13 21:27:02 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi Dan, thanks for updating these shops. Do you have any idea what will be replacing the cafe? It may be worthwhile keeping the node but removing the cafe and name tags as currently there is useful address information that will be lost.
22017-08-20 12:25:48 UTClakedistrict Hi Matt and Dan, I've undeleted the node and updated the tags on it so that the address info isn't lost.
12017-08-04 21:35:41 UTCmatt_twam_asi To answer your fixme question on way - good spot, you're right. This isn't and has never to my knowledge been a cycleway. I'll change it back to a footway.
12017-07-24 21:28:13 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi Jake's Cars, I'm reverting this change too as it was tagged correctly before. Only the very end is surfaced in asphalt, the majority is surfaced in paving stones (well, I call them bricks, but I'm following the wiki). There are photos of the road on Mapillary to confirm.
12017-07-24 21:08:48 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi, I'm reverting this change back to highway=construction. The three roads are still under construction, therefore they shouldn't be tagged as highway=residential yet.
12017-06-28 15:47:50 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi Rafal, is way 91748591 really farmland? If the area is used for allotments then the previous tag of landuse=allotments would be better.
12017-06-20 14:07:04 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi Stephen, Google Street View is not a valid resource as it is not made available under an open license. Having said that, your note isn't factually inaccurate. I'm removing the note and putting a not:name tag on the way instead.
12017-06-05 12:05:44 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi Dan, I first want to say that I'm impressed by the amount of work you've done around the Horsham area over the last few years.

Apologies for commenting on an old changeset but I have noticed that you have occasionally used the "name" tag to contain details that really should be in s...
