12017-12-08 17:34:58 UTCuser_5359 Hello! Did you really need a review? :)
22017-12-08 22:54:23 UTCchachafish No, I must have accidentally clicked the button ;) Thanks for reviewing, tho'
12017-09-14 05:06:04 UTCchachafish Hello, I noticed you entered, "Reflector House" in the name field of a house. Are you saying this is the name of the house? Thanks :)
22017-12-05 19:22:28 UTCRaymo853 I am not sure what structure you are referring to.
32017-12-06 01:48:48 UTCchachafish The house is located at 5175 Gray Street, Denver. Latest changeset #52114895
42017-12-06 17:30:43 UTCRaymo853 This name is a local un-official name. I see it was removed, that seems to have been the correct decision.
12017-11-17 06:59:48 UTCchachafish Greetings, jahbrewski,

Thank you for your contributions to openstreetmap. I notice you changed Washington Street to "North Washington Street". This has the effect of immediately flagging over a hundred addresses of buildings as being on the wrong street. Can you cite your source for th...
22017-11-17 14:52:57 UTCjahbrewski Hmm. So, I live at 79 N Washington St, and our official address through the USPS is 79 N Washington St (see:!input.action?resultMode=1&companyName=&address1=79+Washington+St&address2=&city=Denver&state=CO&urbanCode=&postalC...
32017-11-17 15:32:23 UTCchachafish I looked up your official property record from the City and County of Denver. You actually live at 79 Washington Street. USPS is most likely adding the "N" so its drivers don't accidentally go to 79 South, if that address exists. Here is your public record:
42017-11-17 15:40:46 UTCchachafish Also, Google Maps cannot be a reference for OSM mapping. Google Maps are often incorrect and they're copyrighted, so we don't use them for OSM purposes :)
52017-11-17 15:43:22 UTCchachafish If you walk outside, you'll see the street signs say, "Washington", not "N Washington" ;)
62017-11-17 16:08:27 UTCjahbrewski Ah! That’s awesome. I’m learning so much about where to go for accurate data. Thanks for looking into that and I’ll change Washington back :)
72017-11-17 16:09:32 UTCjahbrewski So - do you think we should we give our address as 79 Washington from now on?
82017-11-17 16:51:44 UTCchachafish Technically, yes. Your address is 79 Washington Street. In Denver, anything north of Ellsworth does not have a, "North" designation. Anything south of Ellsworth does have a "South" designation. Historically, that's just the way Denver has always done it. If you go to the "pr...
12017-10-14 07:04:38 UTCTomas Straupis We need height tag on tower object for information displaying purpose.
22017-10-14 09:43:59 UTCchachafish Understood. Supratau ;)
12017-10-10 09:58:39 UTCTomas Straupis Note that meters is the default unit for tag "height". So " m" is not required and is considered as an error by a number of QA tools.

32017-10-10 16:24:27 UTCchachafish Interesting. Thanks :)
12017-10-09 17:18:20 UTCchachafish Hello, Inked, thank you for your contributions to the map. I noticed with a number of your edits you have deleted work others have done and replaced it with your own. That's not quite the way to do things. If you need to change previous work, you can change it, but not delete it. In this case you co...
12017-10-09 05:24:54 UTCTomas Straupis Reverted. Please do not do mass updates without checking local mapping agreements.
22017-10-09 16:39:08 UTCchachafish Ačiū, Tomai, can you refer me to the local mapping agreements?

12017-09-28 15:27:21 UTCHarald Hartmann Hello chachafish. At you have tagged `building:roof:colour_1`. Why not `roof:colour`? And no `#` leading the hexvalue? Please have a look at
22017-09-28 15:53:38 UTCchachafish Thanks for your comment. It's my experience that colors render just fine with or without the '#'. Do you have information otherwise? Can you provide a link defining problems encountered without '#'? Thanks
12017-09-24 07:45:15 UTCchachafish Greetings, thank you for your additions to the map. I noticed the tags you created for hotels on Yas Island; Crowne Plaza, Radisson Blu, Park Inn, Rotana, Rotana Centro and Staybridge. However, these hotels have already been created as buildings and your nodes would simply duplicate work that has al...
22017-09-25 06:36:29 UTCMirjanOil Hello Chachafish,
Thank you for your comment. I'm aware of the OSM policy regarding to duplicating the names. Recently I was in Abu Dhabi and I couldn't find any of those hotels on Yas Island on my navigation app in POI. The reason, as you mentioned, the hotels are presented as buildings. So, if so...
12017-09-22 09:14:19 UTCchachafish Greetings. Thank you for your mapping. I noticed you had given a "name" to the bus ramps here. Just so you know, the OSM Wiki on highways states, "If only buses are allowed then access=no together with bus=yes would be appropriate." So, the ramps don't really have a true "na...
12017-09-22 08:39:42 UTCchachafish Greetings. I've been researching the name change you created for I-25 in Denver; "Dwight D. Eisenhower Highway". I looked at the source you sighted. The first part of the article states the Dwight D. Eisenhower Highway ran from, "I-270 between the Capital Beltway and I-70 in Frederick...
12017-08-31 22:25:08 UTCCanyonsrcool Hi there,
Curious as to where you got the building names from? Have you been to Abu Dhabi? Do you know "TheAverageNomad"? That username has similar changes to yours. Thanks.
22017-09-01 02:16:14 UTCchachafish Greetings. I just stepped out and checked. These are still marked with their 700 series names. Where did I get them from? I got them from the one-meter posts placed in front of each building which jut up from the ground identifying each building. The 700 series names predate the new Abu Dhabi initia...
12017-04-17 06:47:05 UTCPlaneMad Your edits are amazingly detailed :O
22017-04-20 09:58:30 UTCchachafish Thanks. I do my best ;)
12016-01-09 13:07:59 UTCchachafish As to the name of this bus stop. Can you tell me where you found the name? I just walked over there and cannot find the name you placed here.
12016-01-09 13:05:53 UTCchachafish As to the name of this bus stop. Can you tell me where you found the name? I just walked over there and cannot find the name you placed here.
22016-01-09 17:50:30 UTCSkybunny Hello! You'll want to look further back in the history of the bus stop's changes and ask 'Niels Elgaard Larsen'. I was merely changing a bad tag, 'ref:rulan:addr' to 'ref'. The name itself was put there by that person. Hope this helps!
12015-01-08 01:22:22 UTCKristenK Hello,

This changeset affected the relation that represents the boundary of Denver International Airport (DEN). Since this changeset was committed, the boundaries for DEN *do not* render in OSM and because the relation is no longer a valid multi-polygon.

It isn't clear why the deletions were m...
22015-01-08 06:20:38 UTCchachafish Hey, Thanks for contacting me. That deletion was done completely by mistake. I accidentally hit "save" and didn't know how to repair the error. Sorry about that :)
32015-01-08 17:42:15 UTCKristenK Thanks for responding. I'll go ahead and revert this changeset.
