People have contacted you several times in the past about invalid admin level changes (including me, in ).
Whereas most things in OpenStreetMap are simply a matter of going and surveying something and then adding the results to OSM, wit...
32016-03-14 00:17:25 UTCEzekielT I have many sources:,,, Maarten, and (although you did say...
42016-03-14 00:37:22 UTCSomeoneElse One of the articles you quote says "Aruba is one of the four constituent countries that form the Kingdom of the Netherlands". is the admin level 2 relation; Curaçao is a subarea of that.
52016-03-14 15:28:41 UTCEzekielT That's a good idea. Okay.
62017-12-04 19:17:17 UTCtbakhuis Curacao is not NL as the Nominitem geocoder suggests.

Currently a lot of addresses are displayed in OSM as Street, Willemstad, 0000AA, NL. This is not correct. Here in Curacao we don't have zip codes and the NL should be changed to CW. Since 10-10 2010 Curaçao is an autonomous Country that...
72017-12-04 19:25:52 UTCSomeoneElse Thanks - I've added a comment over at (which is the forum where admin levels etc. are discussed). However, I'm not actually sure whether you're describing a problem with the data in OSM or with the Nominatim geocoder (Curaçao i...
82017-12-04 19:53:38 UTCtbakhuis It does sound strange when you see it like that but we never put NL (Netherlands) as country. I live in Curacao it just doesn't look right when we see Curacao, NL. Google's Geocoder has it right this time. Google Geocoder has Street, Willemstad, Curaçao
92017-12-05 08:49:08 UTCwambacher please read this answer at the forum:


Just for clarification:

Within this kingdom there are 4 autonomous countries:
- the Netherlands (again, plural intended in Eng...
102017-12-05 16:44:54 UTCEzekielT That's what I knew all this time, but I guess all of you still didn't listen :).
112017-12-06 10:52:25 UTCwambacher Hi EzekielT. no easy stuff ;)
122017-12-06 20:52:13 UTCEzekielT Maybe we should tag all of them (Kingdom of the Netherlands, the Netherlands, Aruba, Sint Maarten, and Curaçao) as admin_level=2, as they're all officially countries!
132017-12-06 20:58:34 UTCEzekielT As in:

Kingdom of the Netherlands (including the Netherlands, Aruba, Curaçao, and Sint Maarten) -> admin_level=2

Netherlands -> admin_level=2

Curaçao -> admin_level=2.

Aruba -> admin_level=2.

Sint Maarten -> admin_level=2.
142017-12-07 03:15:43 UTCtbakhuis Seems correct to me. Indeed they're are all countries
