12017-05-22 19:36:29 UTCSwiftFast Hi and welcome to OSM :)

Would you mind reviewing these following two roads you added?
- They don't appear in Aerial
- They are strangely straight
- They don't have a common node on their intersection.

Here are the roads:
1. https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/495159289

22017-05-23 16:49:59 UTCYaronAG Hi there!
yep, the trails do look strange, but were quite definitely there when I walked them, more than once. I'm there about once a week, so I could and will double check.
32017-05-23 18:06:12 UTCSwiftFast Okay. I added an intersection node. Let me know if this is wrong: https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/48924209
42017-08-08 14:43:24 UTCSwiftFast It turned out the roads do not exist, and YaronAG fixed this in this changeset: https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/50913606

12017-08-01 10:14:42 UTCSwiftFast It seems you removed name:he, but we always keep both name:he and name:ar, because the language of "name" is variable in Israel. In some areas it is Arabic, in others it's Hebrew.
12017-07-25 18:48:42 UTCrene78 I guess this revert went partly wrong. For example node 1224150978 seems to be a valid village.
22017-07-25 19:00:17 UTCSwiftFast Are you sure 1224150978 is a valid village? I saw tens of villages all named "الدار", meaning "home". I assumed they weren't real.
32017-07-25 19:05:19 UTCSwiftFast For instance, see these:

https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1222021281/history

https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1217865870/history

https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1219409595/history

https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1224322328/history
42017-07-25 19:05:43 UTCrene78 If you go to this url - http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1224150978/history - Click on the coordinates of the last changeset, then edit, then zoom in as much as possible. You will see that there is a village. Maybe "الدار" is a common name in arabic?
52017-07-25 19:07:08 UTCSwiftFast Unlikely. "الدار" means "the home". It's even less likely to have many villages bearing the same name right next to each other. (See my links, and those aren't all).
62017-07-25 19:09:18 UTCSwiftFast Indeed there's a village. I think it'd be best to rescan all removed villages and re-add them without the name at all, just place=village.
72017-07-25 19:09:29 UTCSwiftFast Thanks for pointing this out!
82017-07-25 19:12:54 UTCSwiftFast In your particular example, if you zoom out a little, you'll notice there are 2 villages with seemingly valid names. Perhaps they also cover that area and it's all good after removing "الدار".
92017-07-25 19:32:45 UTCrene78 Not sure. But nonetheless it is a good idea to do some housekeeping once in a while. Especially quite a few of those maps.me edits are of low quality. Thanks.
102017-07-26 09:07:19 UTCSomeoneElse Any idea what the change to https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/256498994/history was here? It seems odd that it has got caught up in a "my house" tidy-up.
112017-07-26 20:42:38 UTCSwiftFast This node https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/2621574419 is part of the way, and it had its name tag removed.
122017-07-26 20:58:08 UTCSwiftFast Method used for anyone curious: Downloaded nodes bearing "hot words" via JOSM+overpass, and manually inspected them.

the queries are often of the style node["name"~"hotWord"] or node["name:ar"~"hotWord"].
132017-07-26 20:59:21 UTCSwiftFast A time-consuming followup would be manually inspecting the edit history of each person who added a node that was deleted in this changeset. Looking for easy ways to script this.
12017-07-25 15:31:09 UTCSwiftFast According to map info, most people actually tag this as: amenity=shelter, shelter_type=bomb
12017-07-21 08:49:44 UTCzstadler https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/7304999 is the relation for the "Green Line" and https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/294464667 is already a member of it.

22017-07-21 11:50:55 UTCSwiftFast Yes. this is explicitly tagging for the renderer, or more precisely for almost all renderers out there.

Despite being discouraged, it's better than a border which doesn't render. I left it that way till I find a better solution to the following problem:

42017-07-21 11:52:24 UTCSwiftFast Also, adding "administrative" to the green line is factually wrong, I think.
52017-07-23 07:49:49 UTCzstadler If the 1949 armistice line is an historical line. Currently, it does not serve as an administrative boundary, not even a disputed boundary, because it was superseded by the Oslo agreements.
.

62017-07-24 05:22:15 UTCSwiftFast The reason I added a relation is to get it to render while avoiding adding "administrative" on the way itself. Do you have a better alternative?
72017-07-24 06:11:44 UTCzstadler I think that the line should not be rendered.
82017-07-24 07:21:14 UTCSwiftFast Is there anything different about the left just west of it? If not, why should one of them render, and the other shouldn't?
92017-07-24 20:07:13 UTCzstadler If you refer to http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/288825225, then it is a member of a (disputed) boundary=administrative admin_level=2 relation - http://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/1703814
102017-07-24 20:13:53 UTCSwiftFast I think you're missing my point: Both 294464667 and 288825225 are disputed. So, there isn't anything special about either of them, both should be rendered the same. But only the western one renders, because only the western one is part of the PL relation which is tagged administrative.
112017-07-24 20:15:31 UTCSwiftFast So I added this hack to make the Eastern one render. We have a very unique case a country (or pseudo-country if you will) has "two" borders. Putting them both in the PL relation is bad because it messes out outer/inner, so I had to do this hack.
122017-07-25 05:35:04 UTCzstadler A dispute can only be on a boundary claimed by some entity. No claim implies no dispute. Way 288825225 is part of the boundary claimed by Palestine and disputed by Israel.
.
Way 294464667 is not claimed to be a boundary by any entity - neither Palestine nor Israel. Therefore it is not a bounda...

142017-07-25 07:49:47 UTCzstadler I appreciate your listening and open-mindness!
152017-07-25 08:42:49 UTCSwiftFast :)
162017-07-25 08:45:49 UTCSwiftFast What was the historical rationale for having the green line split into two at this section?
172017-07-25 11:23:56 UTCzstadler I'm not an historian, but I think there was a no man's land area/שטח מפורז between the Israeli-controlled and the Jordanian-controlled areas.
12017-07-24 05:59:26 UTCSwiftFast Are you correcting outlines solely based on Aerial?

Please note that sometimes *Aerial is Misaligned*, and you need to take that into account.
22017-07-25 07:01:27 UTCStarlingCarter Thanks for your comment! I am aware of that shortcoming, and have been updating and drawing buildings based on Digital , which I am told is the most accurate imagery we have for Amman. I and others will be working over the next few weeks on filling out the Amman map as much as possible, so if you h...
32017-07-25 07:22:51 UTCSwiftFast I noticed you shifted many existing buildings. This may or may not be correct. A good indicator is GPS traces: You should enable GPS traces (in iD: Background > OpenStreetMap GPS traces). GPS traces are always aligned correctly, and if they disagree with the Aerial, You can re-align aerial by cli...
42017-07-25 07:25:05 UTCSwiftFast You can ignore my comments. Digital Globe Premium appears to be perfectly aligned in this area. So relying on it is fine.
12017-07-24 17:22:29 UTCwille Hi EzekielT,

Thank you very much for your mapping efforts. I don't see OSM as a place to map domestic itens like microwave, stools, televisions... if someone maps some itens inside another person residence it can even be a security matter.

best regards,
22017-07-24 17:46:45 UTCEzekielT Thank you for your feedback :)!

I agree we shouldn't map privately owned things like microwaves; maybe only in a public situation? I'll try to propose the tags soon (for public things only).
32017-07-24 19:08:58 UTCSwiftFast Microwaves in public situations are very useful. Pretty common in campuses.
12017-07-24 08:48:27 UTCSwiftFast_bot I think you should be using addr:housenumber or something similar rather than name

32017-07-21 15:30:41 UTCSwiftFast That's good to know. I've been looking for feedback from people like you in the area. I would appreciate some information for the future.

"road 60" is a bad name. We use the ref=60 tag for numbers. The Hebrew that you deleted means "شارع عفولة - بير السبع" If you want to translate that, add:

52017-07-18 07:16:57 UTCSwiftFast There are lots of online indications the place is there, e.g. here: https://he.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D7%9E%D7%97%D7%9C%D7%A3_%D7%92%D7%9C%D7%99%D7%9C%D7%95%D7%AA

It likely exists.
12017-07-18 06:55:33 UTCSwiftFast What's the point of a 1-member multipolygon?
12017-07-18 06:30:07 UTCSwiftFast Is "Apartheid Street Gate" an actual name, or a politically motivated edit?

By the way, there's also this tag: military=checkpoint, which might be more appropriate for checkpoints.

12017-07-11 16:24:57 UTCSwiftFast I removed "palestenian" from the name tag. Politics have no place in OSM, and the territories are marked by the various relations already.
22017-07-11 19:11:08 UTCNidal Elwan Nice try, just admit that you removed ''Palestinian'' because you are Israeli, not because of OSM !
32017-07-11 19:18:58 UTCSwiftFast I don't care about politics.

If you look at my edit history, you'll see I make edits both ways. In fact I'm the one who renamed the second "Judea and Samaria" relation (an Israeli name) to "West Bank" (A Palestinian name) because it was objectively the right thing to do.

42017-07-11 19:27:04 UTCSwiftFast If you are curious regarding territories, I made a list here:

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WikiProject_Israel#Palestine_Related

But that's just about it, there really is no need to mark individual points as as IL or PL. It's just a door for edit wars.

Thanks for your understanding.
52017-07-11 19:39:25 UTCNidal Elwan ''objectively the right thing to do''
How ironic !!!!! if you and Israelis are truthful, your occupation will end and we'll be living in our own state peacefully.

22017-07-01 05:58:05 UTCSwiftFast You have a parking node inside a polygon tagged with "area". If the entire area is a parking, you should simply put all the tags on the polygon and remove the center node.

The "description" is a short sentence explaining what the point of interest is.

You can go and verify :)))
In Hebrew the bank name is (right-to-left) DISCONT (דיסקונט)without Alef and Waw as "O", the station name is DISCAUNT (דיסקאונט) with Alef and Waw as "U"
32017-06-24 18:47:15 UTCSwiftFast I am saying that you named it "discont", which I know is a bank, but you gave it the type "fuel".

Thanks :)
12017-06-23 11:30:49 UTCSwiftFast Welcome to OSM. It is a common convention for the "name" tag to be in the local language. Which is Hebrew / Arabic in Israel.

12017-06-06 09:22:14 UTCSwiftFast Although עספיא is the legal name, I think the mostly used name is עוספיה. Fixed here: https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/49299539

Careful with name tag edits :)

32017-06-06 09:27:37 UTCSwiftFast I might have got confused and it's the other way around, regardless, the 3 variations should be searchable. Last change set should do the trick.
12017-06-05 05:12:16 UTCSwiftFast You should use name:en for the English name, and not name:he
12017-06-04 10:27:58 UTCSwiftFast Hello,

It is possible to make perfect 90 degrees (זוויות ישרות) .

In iD, right click a building, then click "square". Or use the "S" keyboard shortcut.
12017-06-04 08:39:31 UTCSwiftFast Welcome to OSM :)

You tube "רכמל" instead of "כרמל". Also, a bridleway is used mainly for horses. Are you sure that's a bridleway? They're uncommon in Israel, I think.
22017-06-04 08:39:43 UTCSwiftFast You typed*
32017-06-04 08:56:24 UTCSwiftFast In a PM, Tamir Rarn explained that bridleways are common. I apologize for my previous comment. Happy mapping :)
42017-06-04 09:37:34 UTCSwiftFast Following a discussion, this was changed to a "path".
12016-12-21 18:55:32 UTCzstadler Hi Eliyak,

This relation had no country-level tags.

It is useful in cleaning up OSM data using Overpass Turbo.

Zeev
22017-06-04 07:52:21 UTCSwiftFast It is also super useful for automated edits, and generic overpass queries for statistics and so on.
12017-05-12 11:29:23 UTCSwiftFast This edit was not made by a bot. I accidentally used the wrong user. Won't happen again.
22017-05-20 22:58:49 UTCPolarbear Why did you remove the "emergency=no" tag from the hospital?
32017-05-23 07:19:15 UTCSwiftFast Accident. Sorry. Added it back in https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/48908220

Thanks for the catch.
42017-06-02 07:24:43 UTCSwiftFast Actually, this was not an error. Apparently they have an emergency department (and even a helipad which I presume is used in emergencies). http://www.gmc.org.il/Pages.aspx?pg=division&CategoryID=500&ID=45

62017-06-02 08:51:25 UTCPolarbear Seems to be fine now.
In general, however, do not "presume". Do not conclude "if there is feature X, there must be feature Y". Reality has exceptions. Check on the ground, and research objects individually.
That's why OSM is quite strict about mechanical edits.
thanks.
72017-06-02 09:34:20 UTCSwiftFast 1. The link explicitly states it has an emergency department.

2. This is not a mechanical edit. It was accidentally made in SwiftFast_bot
82017-06-02 10:42:20 UTCPolarbear As said, everything fine with this CS.
My last comment was to be generally cautious with mech edits.
Take care, and thanks for the cooperation and discussion.

I find automation to be a very powerful drudgery saver, allowing mappers to work on what really matters. I am taking great care to document every step and to always start slow:

12017-05-27 10:39:26 UTCSwiftFast Is this name tag needed here? The other tags convey the full message, and the place might have a real/official name.

12017-05-24 09:21:56 UTCSwiftFast Hi,
you updated "Dor Alon" to "Alon", but as far as I know, the name of the brand is actually "Dor Alon". Did I miss something?

Also, you changed the name from "Dor Alon" to "אלון תל אביב- פלורנטי" - We've discussed brand tagging...
22017-05-24 16:39:13 UTCAlexander Markhovsky I don't know exactly about brand name changing, but now all former "Dor-Alon" gas stations have instead of blue-red Dor-Alon colours white-green colours and only "Alon" name

12017-05-25 07:48:44 UTCSwiftFast Hey, I'm not that familiar with 3d tagging, but according to the following Wiki page, all building:parts should be wrapped with a building outline: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:building:part

This does not appear to be the case e.g. here: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/90843677
22017-05-25 09:50:37 UTCYnhockey That method would be quite terrible, as it would create conflicts in the building outline. I am reading the page in the same way you are, but maybe they meant something else, because this method wouldn't work properly in any of the common renderers (like OSMBuildings, etc.). What does make sense is ...

The wiki says "it is not wrong to add it explicitly", so you are performing a mechanical edit just for your own tagging preferences.
Has the mechanical edit been discussed in the community before, if so, where?
22017-05-23 10:05:31 UTCSwiftFast It was not discussed. I took it for granted that no one would mind this since it's always implicit. Perhaps I shouldn't have. Would you like me to revert it?

- miss specific exceptions on individual objects

32017-05-02 18:19:53 UTCSwiftFast It appears the convention for crossing is a way with "highway=footway, footway=crossing, cycling=yes", the crossing is terminated by two "highway=crossing" nodes at each side of the street.
42017-05-02 18:23:27 UTCSwiftFast It appears many people don't put the "cycling=yes" part. I wonder if it messes with nav apps. https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Talk:Tag:footway%3Dcrossing#does_footway.3Dcrossing_imply_cycling.3Dyes.3F

12017-04-26 16:14:30 UTCSwiftFast Welcome to OSM :)
Usually, the name tag is used for actual names. So "ברזיה" is probably not a suitable name. I'd just leave it with "amenity=drinking_water" and no name.

12017-04-28 08:59:05 UTCSwiftFast You used name:en for a Hebrew name.
12017-04-26 21:13:16 UTCSwiftFast Selfnote: is it ok to make a multipolygon building like I just did?
12017-04-26 20:54:23 UTCSwiftFast You got the Braude buildings wrong. See my Changeset: https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/48175045
12017-04-26 06:16:58 UTCSwiftFast It appears you removed some fire zones in Israel. Is this an accident?
22017-04-26 06:23:00 UTCSwiftFast My bad. They are still part of a multi-polygon. Sorry.
12017-04-24 17:30:11 UTCSwiftFast I see you removed a "name:he", duplicating "name" and "name:he" is actually encouraged.
12017-04-22 11:35:27 UTCSwiftFast Hello. the name tag is used for real names. To mark a "שרידי חומה", use "historic=ruins".
12017-04-18 17:04:58 UTCSwiftFast Hi. Would you mind explaining the deletion of 226615133. It doesn't seem right, though I'm not sure. Did you remove the forest?
22017-04-18 17:07:27 UTCSwiftFast On further inspection: It appears you removed a big forest (which I know is there by local knowledge) and replaced it with several chunks of smaller forests. Could you explain?
32017-04-18 17:39:16 UTCvalleyofdawn The big forest was very crude. It covers forested and bare land. The smaller ones were hiding beneath it. These were imported from kkl data. It's time now to
complete the missing forest patches individually.
12017-04-16 07:56:44 UTCSwiftFast Your changeset has overlapping buildings.
22017-04-17 09:20:03 UTCSwiftFast My apologies. Appears to be a multi-level building. All good.
12017-04-16 09:44:19 UTCSwiftFast Why is Nof Hakarmel's highway marked "memorial"? Is this an error?
12017-04-14 17:28:11 UTCSwiftFast Typically, a name tag has a single language and transliteration is discouraged.

Use name and name:he for Hebrew.
use name:en for English if an English name exists.
12017-04-13 09:29:59 UTCSwiftFast The changes to Dalia seem very wrong. What's the source of this?
22017-04-13 09:31:07 UTCSwiftFast The road you removed "672" from and marked as "secondary" is in fact kvesh 672 and is "green" which is primary.

The other road you marked as primary is definitely not 672.
32017-04-13 09:44:13 UTCSwiftFast Reference: http://www.govmap.gov.il/?c=%2bdiEwrFn8i0iVGbRsa4O1Q%3d%3d|UTM2%2bCT3IX5uol2LhsswdA%3d%3d&z=6&b=0&ap=1

52017-04-13 11:47:08 UTCWillRock41 I saw road signs that display these streets as part of the main road
62017-04-13 12:27:45 UTCSwiftFast I believe you confused the two roads. The north-east road (known locally as Okef Dalia) is certainly not part of 672. I'm a local.
72017-04-13 12:31:24 UTCSwiftFast I see you've made a followup changeset: http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/47739940

You marked the north-eastern road as secondary. I think that's OK. (IL Wiki says: [secondary][Exception]: Roads that are more important for routing connections than a normal tertiary road.)

You also marked ...
12017-04-13 06:41:45 UTCSwiftFast Note that "Ram Or" is not a Radiotechnics store. It's a store that sells תאורה.
22017-04-13 06:44:11 UTCSwiftFast Note that "משהדאוי קינג סתור" is named literally that on the title. You renamed it to "משהדאוי קינג"

12017-04-12 13:27:17 UTCSwiftFast Hello :)
I see you tagged "זאפה חיפה", we typically duplicate the name both in the "name" tag and "name:he" tag.
12017-04-11 20:05:51 UTCSwiftFast Hello. I see you've created an area with building=yes and put a node inside it with amenity=toilet. Usually you don't need the node inside it. The area itself can be marked with amenity=toilet instead.
22017-04-12 08:13:10 UTCtiberX Thank you for the hint! Next time I'll do it this way right from the beginning
חג שמח!
32017-04-12 13:23:36 UTCSwiftFast You too :)
12017-04-12 13:23:07 UTCSwiftFast Hello :)
I see you've created an area with "building=yes" and put a node inside it with "leisure=fitness_centre". Usually you don't need the node inside it. The area itself can be marked with "leisure=fitness_centre" instead.
12017-04-12 13:18:51 UTCSwiftFast Hello. Welcome to OSM :)
Please add both "name=אמפי גולן" and "name:he=אמפי גולן" tags.
22017-04-12 13:19:42 UTCSwiftFast Also, please use "amenity=theatre"
12017-04-10 17:30:10 UTCSwiftFast Hello. A memorial is NOT a place of worship.
22017-04-10 17:31:56 UTCSwiftFast Please use "historic=memorial" instead. And welcome to OSM :)

22016-02-28 19:38:10 UTCNakaner It looks like user عقبة بن نافع is not able/willed to discuss mechanical edits in advance. He did a multi-changeset (only very small changesets) mechanical denomination edit over the whole world today.

32017-02-25 22:55:28 UTCnyuriks This edit changed way 332308716 - religion= christian to "Zuluetismo." -- seems wrong - was that a revert bug?
42017-04-10 07:55:30 UTCSwiftFast Worth noting Druze are not a branch of Islam, Just as Christianity isn't a sub-branch of Judaism.
