12017-03-27 09:48:14 UTCmanoharuss Hi opengislab,

This might be an accidental error. But you have given ESRI SUCKS COPY THIS in the name tag for a few place objects you created here. This is a similar case with few other objects in other changesets as well.

May I know the source of this data?

I just wanted to know if any antivandalism system exists or was implemented, and apparently it does, and it works, thank you.
It was just a proof of concept for a scientific article.

Welcome to OpenStreetMap. Your contributions are greatly appreciated. I have observed that you have been adding unverifiable water bodies along with this one in this changeset. I reverted your edits as these seemed unreasonable. Please do continue mapping but please only map what i...

I came across your edits and noticed you have mentioned Google as a source. Please note Google cannot be the source while mapping on OSM. Please do not map anything on OSM if you are using google as a source. Thanks and welcome to OpenStreetMap. Happy Mapping :)

Ok I didn't know, do I need to remove the changes ?

Alexis Nugon.
32017-03-27 05:21:10 UTCmanoharuss Hi Aleix Nugon,

It would be great if you can. Google data is proprietary and not open data. This is the reason why the information from any Google product(maps,streetview) cannot be used on OSM due to license issues.


42017-03-28 15:30:28 UTCpoornibadrinath Hi,
Yeah, please revert the changes. But it can be added again with a source compatible with OSM or by doing a field survey :) Thanks.
52017-03-30 16:06:14 UTCAlexis Nugon Hi,
There's no way to revert all of it in one 'click' or something ?
Do I need to delete the changes for every building one by one and push a new changeset ?

12017-03-24 07:54:15 UTCmanoharuss Hi Love Toys Ctg,

The correct tag for sex shops is shop=erotic. I corrected your edit. Can you confirm the name of the places here? if they are correct.


12017-03-24 07:40:30 UTCmanoharuss Hi Abderrahmane Benkhalifa,

These are way too many attractions, are you sure these are right?


12017-03-24 07:17:37 UTCmanoharuss Hi asdunn,

Welcome to OpenStreetMap. For buildings instead of area=yes, building=yes is the right tag. It would be great if you can correct.


12017-03-24 06:42:07 UTCmanoharuss Hi EmGee0430,

Nice job on building mapping here. If you can correct the overlapping buildings here that would be great.


12017-03-24 06:40:23 UTCmanoharuss Hi DaveHath,

Welcome to OpenStreetMap. Your interest in contributing to the map is greatly appreciated. Nice job here on building mapping. If you can fix the building overlapping issues here, that would be great.


12017-03-24 05:34:47 UTCmanoharuss This relation is now broken
22017-03-24 05:51:03 UTCmanoharuss Hi AragonChristopherR17Z,

I understand a large relation is manageable by splitting it into smaller relations. But the bay area relation here seems broken. May I suggest using JOSM for easier manipulation of relations. I understand that you have created these relations in the first place and maint...

12017-03-22 11:32:20 UTCmanoharuss Hi wolfbert,

Observed that this changeset was open for more than 2hrs and the changeset seems to have touched a large area. Just leaving a note here to confirm if this was an intended behaviour.


22017-03-22 20:43:00 UTCwolfbert Thanks, I'm currently doing a lot of QA (mainly geometry problems, waterways with wrong direction, old-style multipolygons and such) which can occasionally lead to such changesets.

12017-03-21 08:46:01 UTCmanoharuss hi Manuchehr,

You just created 10001 untagged nodes here. Is this a broken import? Can you revert and cleanup?


12017-03-20 15:05:32 UTCmjkab108 Why was the name of this park removed. It has been known as "The Battlefield" for decades. It is where all rally's for the football team as well as bonfires for the local football team are held. At this point I feel that your simply just picking on my submissions.
22017-03-20 15:49:53 UTCmanoharuss @mjkab108 I am not. I apologize for assuming this was a wrong edit and removing the name. But from your initial mapping of park on a residential area made me think this was not a right addition to the map
12017-03-20 11:35:38 UTCmanoharuss Hi mjkab108,

Welcome to OpenStreetMap. Your contributions to OSM are greatly appreciated. But this place does not look like a park from satellite imagery. Please make sure that you map what is existing on the ground. Deleting these.

12017-03-17 06:00:29 UTCmanoharuss Hi Cz ja,

You did change relation from a forest to redbead wetland. Are you sure this is right? From Bing imagery I see distinction between the area tagged as forest and wetland here.

22017-03-19 22:07:08 UTCCz ja Sorry. I fixed it, Now is better?

12017-03-10 10:04:30 UTCmanoharuss Hi AndiWin,

Curious why this changeset is not associated with any OSM editor and why this changeset was open for exactly 1hr.


12017-03-09 12:04:00 UTCmanoharuss Hi lorandr_telenav,

Observed that this changeset bbox is huge. May I suggest keeping the changeset size to a smaller area by uploading often.



12017-03-06 05:52:25 UTCmanoharuss Hi mustafakamil,

I have observed that you have been editing "Jebel Aulia Reservoir". Even though you have spending a lot of time working on this waterbody relation, observe that this is not rendering on OSM.

22017-03-06 06:29:40 UTCmustafakamil hi Manohar
I know this problem from the beginning and I'm trying to solve them
As soon as possible Thank ^_^
12017-03-03 06:39:36 UTCmanoharuss Hi jcaviborg,

You have deleted a lot of farms and landuse polygons here. May I know why?


22017-03-03 07:18:00 UTCjcaviborg In Denmark we prefer the tag ”landuse:farmland” not ”landuse:farm”. Only en small part of the fields in the area are tagged. I deleted those with the wrong tag.
32017-03-03 08:42:22 UTCHjart I think it's usually better to retag than to outright delete otherwise correct polygons. For reference please see
42017-03-03 08:42:38 UTCHjart Also please see
52017-03-03 09:40:07 UTCjcaviborg @Hjart, bagdelen ved "highway=service + service=driveway" er at det ikke kræver et vejnavn. Det er flittigt brugt, også på steder hvor der er flere adresser. Her må "highway=residential" være at foretrække, da det kræver et vejnavn.
62017-03-03 10:05:33 UTCHjart Jeg forstår ikke det argument i forbindelse med private adgangsveje. Bemærk at generelt bruges til at betegne offentlige fælles beboelsesveje/villaveje, ikke private adgangsveje.
12017-03-02 10:38:44 UTCmanoharuss Hi palmfiction,

Welcome to OpenStreeetMap. Your contributions are greatly appreciated. But you did 2 tabletennis points here. I have deleted one point.

didn't you see the tag fire_hydrant:type=undergrund? I don't understand what should be wrong here.

Best regards

I read the discussion on your first changeset. And as it seems you have imported similar incompatible road set again into OSM. 1. Before importing any data into OSM, read up on what is procedure regarding imports, what data is acceptable on OSM. Read:

I see that you have been mapping all along this coastline and mapping only tertiary roads. These are not tertiary roads. Please read

It would be great if you can correct this. Thank you.

22017-02-23 08:51:58 UTCmanoharuss Please tag these as unclassified

12017-01-24 09:27:44 UTCmanoharuss Hi muzirian,

May I suggest not having the tamil version of the name in the "name=*" tag considering we do also have name:ta translation for the same node.


22017-01-24 18:25:44 UTCmuzirian First what i did was remove tamil version from name, but then thought of reverting my change to include tamil version, as it may help someone, not sure.
32017-01-29 09:45:16 UTCmuzirian there are also more nodes like this. Also i see @PlaneMad adding :en tag for these nodes after the main tag was edited to add tamil too in the name.
So there will be a reason for him to leave it like that.
So it would be better if u ask him too.
Hope to hear from u.

All of these ways you have deleted seemed to exist in the imagery with appropriate feature tags. If they are well mapped, exist on the ground (be it for private use which is also tagged) how are they unnecessary?

22016-10-24 17:33:11 UTCSomeoneElse @manoharuss Did you ever get an answer here? Assuming these names aren't real, what's the next step?

82016-11-14 12:52:22 UTCSomeoneElse Thanks - hopefully someone local will comment.
92016-11-23 18:41:39 UTCSomeoneElse @manoharuss - looks like talk-lk is mostly adverts for events, so I guess no reply there is not surprising. Maybe trying contacting individual mappers locally to see if they can validate or invalidate any of the locations?
102016-11-24 11:15:30 UTCmanoharuss @SomeoneElse, OpenStreetMap Sri Lanka group on Facebook seemed more active. Left a quick post to get traction. Hopefully, someone replies.

152016-12-23 19:17:03 UTCSomeoneElse I'd be tempted to do a revert then - it seems unlikely to me that is an ATM.
Presumably you're OK with doing a revert here? If not, let me know and I'll do it.
162017-01-09 15:06:43 UTCSomeoneElse Interestingly, they've edited again - . Does that look plausible?
172017-01-10 06:06:23 UTCmanoharuss @SomeoneElse from Satellite imagery, this seems like a residential area. Seems betting and bookmaking is a legal, regulated business in Sri Lanka. There is no way to verify this mapped object by the user. From the given name tag, this could also be a personal bookmark.
12016-09-05 06:14:18 UTCmanoharuss Hi msyam,

62016-12-23 20:21:18 UTCSomeoneElse The usual stuff to try now would be to try and find a local mapper forum, or even just a local mapper, and consider an Arabic translation of any message. If that fails, I'd just revert it - on the balance of probability they're just personal markers.

12017-01-06 05:28:10 UTCmanoharuss Hi Cynthi Cepada,

Welcome to OpenStreetMap. Your mapping contributions are greatly appreciated. The footway you added was crossing the service road here. I have fixed this. Please make sure that the highways you add do not cross with the existing map data.

12016-12-23 06:21:38 UTCmanoharuss Hi Luciola,

Welcome to OpenStreetMap. Your edits to the map are greatly appreciated. But you have left some of the footways here unconnected and there definitely seems to be a road connecting these footways to the nearby residential road. It would be great if you can connect these footways.

12016-12-23 06:17:58 UTCmanoharuss Hi minar,

Welcome to OpenStreetMap. Your contributions to the map are greatly appreciated. I observed some duplicate nodes, overlapping footways in your edits. It would be great if you can fix these.

22016-08-17 08:36:54 UTCAirlobster Hello,

The removed water was a duplicate of the Gowne Dam.

Kind regards,
32016-08-20 16:10:08 UTCLittle Brother I tend to agree with @Manohar.
The pertinent area should probably be tagged with "landuse=reservoir", "intermittent=yes".
Dam only refers to the actual dam and not to the reservoir area.
42016-08-20 19:57:54 UTCAirlobster The area is already tagged with "landuse=reservoir". I added "intermittent=yes".

I'm not 100% sure, but when googling some pictures it looks more like a waterhole that is called a "dam" because it looks like a small dam.

Your contributions to OpenStreetMap are greatly appreciated. I looked through this changeset along with your other changesets 41465760, 41488327, 41488458 to understand what happened here. The wiki for tagging power stations is here(
22016-08-17 08:03:32 UTCVictorIE Hi,

Apologies for the unorthodox method. I've been removing deprecated tags and names. For example: lists operator=ESB (154), operator=ESB Generation and Wholesale Markets (21), operator=ESB Networks (394), operator=ESB Telecoms (3), operator=ESB ec...
32016-08-17 08:27:05 UTCVictorIE has updated. I'll get to work. :)
42016-08-18 13:33:15 UTCVictorIE I'm working on the last set and it should be gone today
12016-08-10 14:45:11 UTCGrillo Upptäckte det här changesetet av en slump. Det ser ut att vara 50 000 otaggade noder? Finns det något vettigt här eller är det bara att reverta?
22016-08-10 14:49:54 UTCFringillus Det var förut landcover. Det blev reverterat men någon glömde ta bort noderna också. Så bara att reverta.
32016-08-16 07:00:48 UTCmanoharuss Hi Fringillus,

I am reverting this changeset since Grillo and you did not revert this yet. Happy mapping!

42016-08-16 09:28:16 UTCmanings I deleted all the untagged nodes in this changeset:

Because the data is so big, I had to manually download each section in JOSM. After completing the download, I selected all untagged nodes that is not part of any way using this filter in JOSM: `...
12016-08-03 07:54:01 UTCmanoharuss Hi DianaPS,

Welcome to OpenStreetMap. Your mapping efforts are appreciated. I have observed that there are duplicates in this area. This changeset from you and this changeset created buildings and uploaded nearly at the same time. I am reverting you...
12016-08-02 06:10:17 UTCmanoharuss Hi Carlos Cevallos Armas,

Welcome to Openstreetmap. Your mapping efforts are appreciated. You have mapped a `tourism=alpine_hut` in a city. Please check this wiki If you want to map a hut, this would be right tag for the building but no...
12016-07-21 07:17:26 UTCmanoharuss Hi Sujan Nepali,

Welcome to OpenStreetMap. Your mapping efforts are appreciated. If all the users strive to map their hometowns, OSM would be a great source of open map data. I have observed that you have given names to the buildings here. I would like to suggest you against it. The names can be ...
12016-07-20 06:57:59 UTCmanoharuss Hi Prijoy Peter,

Welcome to OpenStreetMap. Your mapping contributions are appreciated. But I have found few issues in this changeset. This OSM way is traced to be a residential road. But it is mapped over other roads which were already there (ht...
12016-07-19 06:48:08 UTCmanoharuss Hi Juan David Saad,

Welcome to OpenStreetMap. Your mapping efforts on OSM are appreciated. But you have added `name=casa` for all the residential buildings you have traced.
`Casa translates to Home`. You should not give `casa/home` to tag to buildings to residential buildings. `building=house` ...
12016-07-19 06:35:48 UTCmanoharuss This was a test to see if iD editor gives warnings on overlapping buildings. Going to revert it, now.
12016-07-15 09:01:58 UTCmanoharuss Hi rosomak,

There were a few duplicates for buildings in this changeset. I cleaned up those in this

12016-07-14 06:05:59 UTCmanoharuss Hi msyam,
Welcome to OpenStreetMap. You have given alphanumeric names to banks, attractions and sport shops. The number of attractions, banks and sport shops seem unreasonable. I would like to the reason behind this. This is a public map database and your POI's are visible to all OSM users. please ...

12016-07-12 07:12:45 UTCmanoharuss Hi kailashdhirwani,

Welcome to OpenStreetMap. I appreciate your mapping efforts. But you have added tourism=attraction, tourism=artwork tags to many amenities. I suggest you that when you are in doubt or didn't find the exact tag in the app, don't tag it as anything else. Check this out for exact...
22016-07-12 11:25:27 UTCkailashdhirwani dear

i corrected all amenities later on web.
please check it
32016-07-12 12:30:36 UTCmanoharuss Hi kailashdhirwani,
I appreciate your reply. I have seen that still there are few nodes with `tourism=*` tags for many nodes. I appreciate your effort in adding POI's. Please take some time to look into the nodes you have created.


42016-07-12 12:41:11 UTCkailashdhirwani Dear Manohar
i agree with you i will defiantly change it

i am using app it has limited poi that please allow me some time. i personally aware about all poi.

please give some time.


52016-07-12 13:16:18 UTCkailashdhirwani hi Manohar

now all nodes are updated with real and accurate names.

but if you find some error inform me

some are still with tourism tag. it are informative for tourist


62016-07-12 13:23:50 UTCmanoharuss Hi kailashdhirwani,

Great job updating your the POI's. Awesome mapping. Now the POI's you just created will be of use to another OSM user. Good job. Please continue mapping on OSM. If you need any help in mapping or seeking to learn more, I am always here to help. Make sure that your edits are ta...

i am updating lots of poi(as i think) so please correct me if you find some wrong thing in it as a tourissam ,attraction...which i didnt corrected.. if possible.. please help me

i normaly correct all poi but if by mistake some of them will left than pleace point it out.

12016-06-15 20:08:52 UTCZverik Hi, I guess you've mistaken the "Add place" feature for markers. All these points were added to a global database, that is, a map. Do you need these points? I plan to remove them, but if you need, I can export them in any format.
22016-07-12 07:50:13 UTCmanoharuss Hi Julie Thurman,

You have not replied to Zverik's comment. 27days after you uploaded your changeset, your edits are still on OSM. These edits maybe are your local bookmarks you wanted to have in your phone. But this is a public database. What you map is visible to everybody and seem as tourist p...
32016-07-12 08:31:37 UTCZverik Manohar, thanks for cleaning this up. Do you know you can revert and other simple changesets with ? :)
42016-07-12 09:55:36 UTCmanoharuss Hi Zverik, I've not come across It seems like a quick, handy tool to revert small changesets and edits. Thanks for this.
12016-07-12 08:12:46 UTCmanoharuss Hi pohaham,
Welcome to OpenStreetMap. But clearly the airport does not have these many doctors. This is a public map database you are uploading to and people who use OSM would see these unusable mistagged POI's. I am not sure what you were trying to tag. If these Points of interest are right but yo...
12016-07-12 07:01:44 UTCmanoharuss Hi dennislyn,
You have added tourism=viewpoint tag to streets too. This is clearly a mistake. Please have a look at Make sure to clean up your edits or let me know if you want me to do it for you.

12016-07-11 10:45:17 UTCmanoharuss Hi Lafta Dakhil Hasan,
Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
You have added so many department store tags. What is the reason for this? Is this a marketplace and you tagged each store? Please reply.

12016-07-11 10:01:07 UTCmanoharuss Hi Arjie'Cindy,
You tagged `tourism=viewpoint` to so many nodes. Even to few streets. These edits are not constructive to OSM if they are not actually viewpoints. You want me to revert this?
12016-07-08 06:41:33 UTCmanoharuss Hi PSHye06,

You have added `tourism=viewpoint` tag to all kinds of POI's. Ex: Motorcycle parts store would have a building=manufacture to the polygon instead of a node with viewpoint tag. It is not a POI. For Car Emission testing, you can give `amenity=vehicle_inspection` to the node. Please go t...
12016-07-05 07:49:26 UTCmanoharuss Hi Danilo Reinoso,

You added a lot of 'shop=hardware' shops using Maps.Me. This is way to many for a couple of cities. Can you mention the source of your edits or the reason behind this. The number of hardware shops are unreasonably huge.

12016-07-05 06:48:52 UTCmanoharuss Hi Razor74,

I saw that you added building:levels for few buildings. Awesome mapping. However, can I request you to be descriptive in your comments and please mention source for your changesets. It is a good practice. Our OSM community grows and integrates much better if we have lesser communicat...
22016-07-05 08:20:58 UTCrazor74 I am from Bucharest and i saw these buildings daily. I know what i do. Do you?
12016-06-28 06:10:37 UTCmanoharuss Hi rdz3056,

Your contributions to OSM are appreciated. We need more mappers in India. You are doing a good think adding point of interests and amenities. What I would like to suggest though is draw a building with building=yes tag and then add amenities/shop etc so we can avoid these amenities l...
12016-06-22 06:16:50 UTCmanoharuss Hi epician,

Your mapping efforts are appreciated. But the 'name' tag should only have the name from the local language. There is no need of English name in the brackets. OSM way, 301792883. The english name you have given for name_en is correct. I request you to avoid giving english names in brac...
22016-06-22 07:12:17 UTCepician Hello, Manohar.

After read your comment and few wiki pages I learned about correct naming rule that are you described.

Long time ago when I learn about OSM map, I'd reference some posts like here ( And I just follow the rules already named by other. This is why ...
32016-06-23 08:26:46 UTCmanoharuss Hello epician,

Thanks for the reply. The guide post at is actually quite good. It is suggested that English names be in "name:en" tag and local name be in "name" tag. But I have observed that the name tags in South Korea actually also have english name in brackets. ...
12016-06-14 09:52:26 UTCmanoharuss Hi kdano,

I came across your edits in this changeset and observed that you have deleted many crosswalks in this region. It would be great if you could explain the reason for deleting these crosswalks as the Bing imagery clearly shows the crosswalks.


22016-06-14 10:26:43 UTCkdano Hi Manohar,

I didn't delete the crosswalks. I deleted the footways leading from nowhere to nowhere and replaced them with crosswalk nodes on the roads.

My reason was to clean up the database: there is no point in having paths leading nowhere. (most of the crossings drawn did not even have a c...
32016-06-16 06:51:14 UTCmanoharuss Hi kdano,

Thanks for your detailed reply. There is a kind of back and forth on-going discussion in the OSM community about the best way to map crosswalks. This is the reason why both methods are presented in the OSM wiki ( You have a completely val...
12016-06-10 06:32:12 UTCmanoharuss Wrong changeset comment. Changed footway highway tag to unclassified based on Bing imagery.

you changed from secondary to teritiary and teritiary to secondary again from version 21 of the OSM way. You changed ref to old_ref and old_ref to reg_ref as well. Along with that, in your final e...
22016-06-09 09:07:25 UTCJayCBR there is a reconstruction of provincial network in progress, you should visit the greek wiki and forum..we the community decided for all provincial roads to be secondary (unless unpaved)
