12017-07-20 12:38:22 UTCFirefishy Awesome! Thank you for these great edits of Grahamstown / iRhini :) Happy mapping.
12017-07-20 12:37:23 UTCFirefishy Awesome First edits! Happy mapping. Keep it up ;-) - Grant

12017-07-06 11:53:49 UTCFirefishy Nice first edit! Thank you. Keep it up ;-)
12017-06-19 11:35:43 UTCFirefishy Welcome to OSM. Any other improvements to the map are appreciated. Any idea what the school field behind the Grey's swimming pool & tennis courts is called?
12017-06-09 15:01:56 UTCFirefishy Awesome! Thank you.
12017-05-25 14:11:52 UTCFirefishy Welkom! Thank you for helping improve the map, keep up the good work :)
22017-09-13 22:04:12 UTCGielie Loots Dear Sir
I have done the correct naming of this streets 4 months ago and yet is is not corrected on google streets. Can you please let me know shy not. It is a new estate and people struggle to fine us as it is.
Regards
Gielie
12017-04-25 15:31:00 UTCFirefishy Please can you connect the paths to the road where they connect to the roads and make sure the alignments are correct.
12017-03-24 15:22:14 UTCFirefishy Please only add real data to the map. Vandalism is unacceptable.
12017-03-17 10:24:33 UTCFirefishy Thank you. Welcome to OpenStreetMap, happy mapping. Hope you like the aerial imagery ;-) - Grant
12017-03-14 12:02:41 UTCFirefishy Welcome to OpenStreetMap! Thank you for the excellent additions to the map, you are off to a flying start. I hope you like the very high resolution City of Cape Town imagery, which the CoCT have allowed us to use. I'd love to get similar imagery for Durban and other cities. - Grant
12017-01-29 17:23:58 UTCFirefishy Awesome first edit. More of your local knowledge greatly appreciated.
12017-01-15 23:22:42 UTCFirefishy Thank you for help in improving OpenStreetMap. Your local knowledge is greatly appreciated.
12017-01-15 23:21:02 UTCFirefishy Awesome. Great first contribution. Thank you for adding your valuable knowledge to the map.
12017-01-09 13:34:49 UTChadw I don't believe there is a hairdresser's here called Vacant Shop; I think I would have noticed the name if there was. This looks like misusing the name as meta-data.

There are at least two ways of indicating void shops; one is shop=vacant, but there is also a lifecycle prefix way of doing it.
22017-01-09 13:37:56 UTCFirefishy Yup sorry, I was testing a mobile app. The shop is vacant and is no longer a hair dresses.
32017-01-09 13:58:32 UTChadw I would still say that it should not be called Vacant Shop; it should be un-named.
12016-12-25 17:23:10 UTCFirefishy The paths you added don't seem to match reality much. Please could you take a look at improving them? OSM is a map used by all.
12016-12-19 17:20:28 UTCFirefishy What is the name of the Restaurant?
22016-12-19 17:22:07 UTCFirefishy Ah. I see you added it.
12016-12-12 14:49:34 UTCFirefishy Nice first edit. Welcome to OpenStreetMap. The aerial imagery is from the City of Cape Town. I collected it a few months back, it was flown in 2015.
22016-12-12 14:55:52 UTCDeonVDW Thanks! :) I live in the area and thought it would be nice to have an updated map.
12016-12-09 12:05:37 UTCFirefishy Dankie. Thanks for the fix, likely more in Sandton that could use your help... it has changed rapidly in the last few years.
12016-11-21 00:48:36 UTCFirefishy Is there a hiking hut here?
12016-11-21 00:48:04 UTCFirefishy You sure the position is correct? I cannot see a shop here
12016-11-16 22:07:37 UTCFirefishy Great first contribution. Any additional local knowledge greatly appreciated. Spread the word ;-)
22016-11-16 22:09:24 UTCFirefishy PS: Our coverage of Mosques is not very good, would be great expanding.
12016-11-15 15:27:19 UTCFirefishy Best to give the full name. Is JLD the full name?
12016-11-12 13:09:54 UTCFirefishy Could you add the road to get here?
12016-11-06 18:46:09 UTCFirefishy It is best to make the points alongside the road and not directly on the road. A point over the house/entrance.
12016-11-05 20:27:18 UTCFirefishy Awesome first addition. Thank you for adding your local knowledge to the map.
12016-11-05 18:36:36 UTCFirefishy Awesome first contribution! Any more appreciated. Tourism features maybe in the former Eastern Transvaal?
12016-10-22 15:51:53 UTCFirefishy Awesome first edit for the Eastern Cape. Really appreciate the help improving the map.
12016-10-19 14:51:50 UTCFirefishy Nice first edit!
12016-10-05 07:37:28 UTCFirefishy Great first edit to OpenStreetMap! Happy mapping ;-)
12016-10-04 14:14:23 UTCFirefishy Welcome to OpenStreetMap! Nice mapping. Enjoy.
22016-10-04 14:29:38 UTCFirefishy PS: Maps.me (Free cellphone app) allows you to add / amend too. The maps it comes with are update around once very 2 months.
12016-10-04 14:07:42 UTCFirefishy I am unsure what you are doing, but you seem to be making some very bad edits.
22016-10-04 14:17:58 UTCFirefishy I think it likely best I revert (undo) this changeset, you have made the R399 a straight road which it is not.
32016-10-04 14:25:46 UTCwoodpeck_repair This changeset has been reverted fully or in part by changeset 42631157 where the changeset comment is: revert edit mistake, see discussion in http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/42627423

12016-10-04 14:14:06 UTCFirefishy Welcome to OpenStreetMap! Nice mapping. Enjoy.
12016-10-03 19:16:58 UTCFirefishy Please can you fix the tag, this place isn't a place of worship (eg: church).
12016-09-13 07:44:18 UTCwambacher Hi Adrian,

i think, you don't respect our "import guidelines" https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Guidelines

- i can't find any documentation, no wiki, nothing.
- you did not add your project to https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Catalogue
- you don't use an extra im...
22016-09-13 08:06:17 UTCNakaner Hi Adrian,

Walters an my changeset comment apply to multiple of your changesets.

I addition, I want to point out that deleting of existing data and recreating it destroys the history of the deleted objects. https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Good_practice#Keep_the_history

I ask you to resp...
32016-09-13 11:47:50 UTCAdrian Frith Hi folks,

Not sure I will be able to respond by your deadline but I have seen the messages and will provide a full reply as soon as possible.

Adrian
42016-09-13 16:44:13 UTCAdrian Frith Hi folks,

wambacher: In 2014 I added the previous set of SA ward boundaries - I can't point to the whole range of edits but the last one is changeset #21821462. Nobody had an issue with it or made a complaint then, so it didn't even occur to me to do anything differently this time. I will certain...
52016-09-13 16:46:22 UTCAdrian Frith (Regarding the second point, though: semantically, "deletion and recreating" is what happens to the wards in South Africa in the delimitation process. "Swartland Ward 2" in 2015 is a different entity than "Swartland Ward 2" in 2016. But I can still see the practical val...
62016-09-13 20:43:48 UTCNakaner Hi Adrian,

thank you for your quick response. What's the legal status of the data? Where is the permisson from the data owner which allows you to upload it to OSM and release it under the Contributor Terms? Where can we ourselves find the dataset (if it is an act or similar text document and no s...
72016-09-13 21:06:48 UTCwambacher Hi adrian,

ok, you did some imports in 2014 and nobody complains. But the times are changing. During the last 2 years, OSM decided to be more restrictive in importing external data. That's because of many problems, either bad quality or using unauthorized data. Both leading to big problems.

se...
82016-09-16 07:05:07 UTCwambacher @adrian: any news?
92016-09-19 00:02:51 UTCAdrian Frith Hey folks, sorry about the slow reply - I had a very busy week at work.

Regarding the permission for the data: I have emailed Grant Slater (a/k/a firefishy, you probably know him) because he was the one who arranged permission with the Municipal Demarcation Board to import their data. I have aske...
102016-09-19 00:03:34 UTCAdrian Frith ("any of this" meaning "any importing of this data", of course)
112016-09-19 07:02:41 UTCFirefishy Yes, OSM has explicit permission to use this dataset. Adrian kindly manages the updates of this data every few years. The data is high quality and is the definitive boundary dataset for South Africa.
122016-09-19 07:58:47 UTCwambacher Great.
Please add your project to https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Catalogue
12016-07-27 21:09:37 UTCVaxe Honeybun community? Cute, but what's the explanation for this?
22016-07-27 22:16:03 UTCFirefishy It is called Honeybun Estate.I don't know why it is called that. See here: http://honeybuntra.weebly.com/ or many other search results.

12016-07-10 22:19:53 UTCFirefishy Awesome additions to the map. Happy mapping.
12016-07-10 22:18:18 UTCFirefishy Great first addition. Happy mapping. Maybe some local attractions? Show me a PE guy that JHB has lots to offer. ;-)

12016-06-05 16:05:51 UTCFirefishy Great first edit! Welcome to OpenStreetMap ;-)
12016-05-23 15:56:22 UTCFirefishy Likely best to add a space in the name of the B&B. "My Housy" instead "MyHousy" :)
12016-05-14 14:17:18 UTCFirefishy Great First edit. Welcome to OpenStreetMap.

22016-01-29 16:16:25 UTCglamping So I added the pin yesterday, but when I go to the mapbox section on our site, I still don't see a pin on the map? Did I miss doing something? Or does it take longer for that to happen than I think? Or do I need to add something with regards to my address in my website data in order to find it? Tha...
32016-01-29 16:18:02 UTCFirefishy I am unsure how frequently mapbox update their rendering of OpenStreetMap data... May be a few hours or a few weeks, but normally I'd guess a few days.
42016-01-29 16:52:48 UTCglamping ok. thanks.
12015-12-29 07:42:55 UTCFirefishy Awesome. Thank you! ;-) Happy mapping and keep up the good work. If you have absolutely any questions, I'd be glad to help. - Grant

12015-11-08 00:12:39 UTCFirefishy Hi, Do you have any more info about the opening of this rail section? Who is RTG?
12015-10-29 16:47:59 UTCFirefishy Awesome contributions! Thank you. Loving the railway contributions. If you have absolutely any questions... I'd be happy to answer them for you. Kind regards, Grant
12015-10-29 11:11:56 UTCFirefishy We only map features that physically exist on the ground. If this feature exists and is known by people locally by that name, then great... if only future planned... then it should not be mapped.
12015-10-16 18:22:26 UTCFirefishy Awesome contributions! Welcome to OpenStreetMap. If you have any question, I'd be glad to help. Happy Mapping. - Grant
12015-10-13 17:23:06 UTCFirefishy Welcome to OpenStreetMap. Thank you for helping improve OpenStreetMap. Happy to answer absolutely any question you might have about OpenStreetMap. Regards Grant

12015-09-25 17:45:29 UTCFirefishy Welcome to OpenStreetMap. Thank you for improving the map. Any other additions or corrections greatly appreciated. Howick could definitely improve with some of your local knowledge. If you have absolutely any questions about OpenStreetMap, let me know, I'm happy to help. Happy mapping. Thanks Grant

12015-09-25 17:38:27 UTCFirefishy Welcome to OpenStreetMap. Any help improving areas you know greatly appreciated. Welkom could definitely do with some improvements. Top tip: Always use full names without abbreviations... eg: Road instead of Rd. Feel free to ask me absolutely anything. Kind regards, Grant
12015-09-09 08:50:25 UTCFirefishy Awesome first contribution. Thank you!
12015-09-08 21:26:51 UTCFirefishy Removed the name of the house. We'd have a lot of "My Houses" if everyone did that. ;-)

Cheers
Grant
12015-08-18 15:50:15 UTCFirefishy Welcome to OpenStreetMap :)
You also need to mark the building as a building. If using advanced use tag building=yes

12015-08-17 15:08:56 UTChadw Arc House is rectangular, and significantly elongated and I wouldn't classify it as "commercial", although refining the full nature probably awaits its opening. My provisional guess is that it is an open air theatre.
22015-08-17 16:09:01 UTCFirefishy I'm surprised it has taken so long to open. I've seen the council showing prospective leasers? around.
32015-08-17 16:53:46 UTChadw The sign says operated by Harrow College, and also says: events, dance, music, cafe, open daily, but it wasn't open around 14:30 today.
12015-08-06 09:28:24 UTCFirefishy Baie Dankie ;-) Great first contribution, thank you for helping improve the map. Looks good. Happy to answer absolutely any questions you might have. - Grant

12015-07-25 23:46:02 UTCFirefishy Hi Paul,

I have reverted your edit, it seems to be vandalism.

22015-07-10 16:16:14 UTCroger@coffeebay Thanks Firefishy. I see on the map there is a node and bed icon but no name. How do I go about getting the name "Geckos B & B" to appear next to the icon?
Regards - Roger@coffeebay
12015-07-04 09:45:53 UTCFirefishy Thank you for the accessibility info to OpenStreetMap/Wheelmap, any additional appreciated. Happy to answer any questions you have. - Grant
12015-06-23 08:53:58 UTCFirefishy Great first contribution to the map! Thank you. Happy to answer anything if you have any questions.
12015-06-17 08:30:13 UTCFirefishy Very nice first edit. Welcome. Local knowledge is what makes OpenStreetMap great. Let me know if you need help with anything.
12015-06-17 07:40:22 UTCRoland Andrag Sorry everyone, I was too quick on the button and did not post a description of the changes - I removed some centre pivot circles on Wildeklawer that have moved since they were drawn.
22015-06-17 08:29:51 UTCFirefishy Very nice first edit. Welcome. Local knowledge is what makes OpenStreetMap great. Let me know if you need help with anything.

22015-06-12 14:47:55 UTCPhoenix_SA Thank you - will do :)
12015-05-26 18:48:41 UTCFirefishy Welcome to OpenStreetMap :) Happy mapping.
12015-03-30 11:00:39 UTCShaunv Added street names Blesbok and Koedoe street

12015-03-27 11:01:09 UTCFirefishy OK if I remove your test? The data is live...
12015-03-25 23:35:47 UTCFirefishy Hi. Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Quick tip: Use full street names and not abbreviations.
12015-03-21 22:43:38 UTCFirefishy Welcome to OpenStreetMap South Africa. Very nice addition. Best to not use abbreviations. Use Avenue instead of Ave etc.
22015-03-21 23:05:24 UTCFirefishy Fixed them up: https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/29646301
12015-03-21 00:45:28 UTCFirefishy This has cause massive damage to the road network. You have merged the roads and areas very badly. I have spent the last few hours unpicking this. Horrible. Please start small.
12015-03-16 11:22:31 UTCFirefishy Welcome to OpenStreetMap. Thank you for the great addition.
12015-03-13 14:11:04 UTCFirefishy Welcome to OpenStreetMap South Africa. Appreciate the addition. Any more greatly appreciated.
12015-03-10 13:21:11 UTCFirefishy Great addition. Thank you.
The old names are best kept under the tag old_name=
22015-03-10 13:22:00 UTCFirefishy Oh and always best to use the full names, no abbreviations. ;-)
12015-02-23 20:38:33 UTCFirefishy Anything else nearby that you could map? ;-)
12015-02-23 20:38:03 UTCFirefishy Looks great. Quick tip: Do not use abbreviation. eg: Use Street instead of Str. It is very difficult for software to unabbreviate names, but very easy to abbreviate them.
12015-02-15 22:35:43 UTCFirefishy Hi Roelan,

OpenStreetMap is a live, real map used by many. Please only delete stuff if it no longer exists on the ground. "Ground Truth"

Dankie,
Grant
12015-02-15 22:12:32 UTCFirefishy Hey Flashatstar

That was a particularly bad typo of Makro Store Cape Gate. Best to be careful.

Kind regards,

12015-02-15 21:18:33 UTCFirefishy Great work improving Bloem. Any more would be appreciated ;-)
