12018-08-15 17:31:24 UTCandrewwiseman Thanks for all your mapping! Don't forget to square the corners of your buildings with the s key on your keyboard, that way they are the correct shape and have 90-degree corners. Thank you!
12018-08-10 17:22:38 UTCandrewwiseman Thanks for mapping, looks great! Keep it up!
12018-08-10 17:21:48 UTCandrewwiseman Thanks for mapping! don't forget to square the corners of your buildings though, they should be 90 degrees. Do that by clicking the s key on your keyboard. Thanks!

12018-08-10 16:43:27 UTCandrewwiseman Thanks for mapping! Don't forget to square the corners of your buildings, they should almost always be 90 degrees. To do that click on the building and click the s key on your keyboard. Here's a gif that shows what it looks like https://media.giphy.com/media/9V3I96bqVZ0K9BKZsq/giphy.gif

12018-08-10 16:27:15 UTCandrewwiseman Thanks for mapping. However make sure to tag buildings as "building" -- they will turn pink. If it is white colored then it's just a shape without any info.
12018-08-10 16:26:31 UTCandrewwiseman Looks great! Thanks for mapping, please keep it up
12018-08-10 16:24:46 UTCandrewwiseman Looks great, thanks for mapping!
12018-08-10 16:24:38 UTCandrewwiseman Looks awesome, thanks for mapping!
12018-08-10 16:23:22 UTCandrewwiseman Thanks for mapping! One reminder, make sure to click the ’s’ key on their keyboard after tagging it as a building. That will make sure the corners are 90 degrees. I’m seeing a few buildings that are funny crooked shapes. Thanks!
12018-08-10 16:22:11 UTCandrewwiseman Thanks for mapping! One reminder, make sure to tell people to click the ’s’ key on their keyboard after tagging it as a building. That will make sure the corners are 90 degrees. I’m seeing a few buildings that are funny crooked shapes. Thanks!
12018-08-10 16:19:25 UTCandrewwiseman Thanks for mapping! Don't forget to square the corners of your buildings with the 's' key on your keyboard though. Most buildings are going to be rectangles or square shapes, not angled

12018-08-10 16:15:06 UTCandrewwiseman Hi, thanks for mapping! When mapping buildings, make sure to tag them as "building" -- they will turn pink. Also make sure to right click on them and choose "square corners" so the building will have 90 degree corners.

Here's a video with more info

12018-07-23 19:01:40 UTCandrewwiseman Thanks for mapping! However some of these roads already existed so now there are two overlapping sets. I can remove them but make sure to zoom in when mapping and make sure something isn't already mapped.
12018-07-10 18:35:56 UTCandrewwiseman Hi, thanks for mapping. However it is better to add tags to the road that already existed than to add a duplicate road. This road already existed here so now there are two: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/267321774"
I can fix it, but just so you know going forward.
12018-07-10 17:28:50 UTCandrewwiseman Thanks for mapping! But don't forget to tag your buildings as "building" -- they will turn pink. Otherwise they are just shapes with no attributes. Thanks!

12018-07-10 16:18:42 UTCandrewwiseman Thanks for mapping! Make sure your buildings don't overlap. You may need to zoom in closer to make sure they don't.

12018-07-10 16:01:48 UTCandrewwiseman Looks good! Thanks for mapping. Don't forget to right click on each building and click the "square" building tool so the buildings have right angles (90 degree corners)
12018-06-28 16:27:35 UTCandrewwiseman Thanks for mapping, welcome to OpenStreetMap! When mapping rectangular things like houses don't forget to "square" the corners to make them 90 degrees by hitting 's' on your keyboard after mapping the building. Thanks!
12018-06-27 15:01:53 UTCandrewwiseman Hi, thanks for mapping! However it looks like two of the ways you added, https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/598220756#map=13/-1.3712/10.6324 and https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/598220763#map=13/-1.0780/10.5578 are already mapped, so we are going to remove them.

12018-06-21 18:24:45 UTCandrewwiseman Hi Alexandra. Primary and secondary roads should only be the most important highways in a country. These are small rural roads that should be unclassified or residential. Check out the Africa Highway Tagging page: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Highway_Tag_Africa
12018-06-21 18:24:12 UTCandrewwiseman Hi Peter. This road already existed when you added it (https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/588421617). Please check for existing roads before adding new ones. Thanks for mapping!
12018-06-05 18:20:31 UTCandrewwiseman Hello, you mistakenly dragged a corner of the road, so there is a big triangle now. We can fix it, but make sure to be careful with what features you are moving. Thanks for mapping!
22018-06-05 18:23:33 UTCandrewwiseman In particular, this corner: https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/2833603505#map=19/12.98507/7.61232

12018-06-05 18:19:15 UTCandrewwiseman Hi Usman,

Thank you for contributing to OSM! It is best to represent each road with only one feature. You are adding some roads that already exist. Please look for an existing road before adding a new one. Let me know if you have any questions. Here is more info https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wi...

12018-05-17 19:47:44 UTCandrewwiseman Hello, thanks for your edits! I think the top of https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/588867619 is a little off though according to imagery, it is currently going through parking spaces. I think it should go farther east and then turn 90 degrees
12018-05-17 19:28:22 UTCandrewwiseman Hi there, thanks for your edits! However I think the highway=service you added should probably be either highway=residential or highway=unclassified, it looks like a regular through street. Also I think the small segment (https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/588875194) should be part of the main way, a...
22018-05-18 05:13:43 UTCygudeti Thank you for the suggestion. I have edited the road accordingly.
12018-04-18 22:33:35 UTCandrewwiseman Hi there, welcome to OpenStreetMap! I see you are adding some highway=motorway -- that means a controlled access, divided highway, like an interstate highway in the US or an autobahn. In this case this looks like a much smaller road. Please refer to the task instructions for your HOT task and follow...

12018-04-17 19:02:47 UTCandrewwiseman Hi there, please make sure to map buildings as squares tagged building=yes instead of points. Also for this task you don't need to add land use. Thanks
12018-04-06 20:53:41 UTCandrewwiseman Welcome to OpenStreetMap! Thanks for your edits! It looks like you are adding a bridge to this road but you accidentally tagged the whole road as a bridge.

12018-03-30 19:38:36 UTCandrewwiseman Thanks for your mapping! You added a lot of features like restaurant, church, cafe, and so on but it looks like you were using Bing imagery. Have you been to this place? If not, please just map what you are sure of, like this is a building, rather than guessing what might be in the building. Thanks!

12017-11-15 22:37:34 UTCandrewwiseman Hi there, it looks like you adjusted the India-Bhutan border and removed some roads here, do you have a source for that? Thanks.
22017-11-16 12:49:14 UTCSrihari Thalla Must be an unintentional mistake?
12017-11-15 22:31:18 UTCandrewwiseman Hi there, I just noticed this issue. it looks like you moved an entire town and it doesn't match up with imagery or OSM GPS traces, can you explain more about the edit? Thanks

12017-11-07 02:31:10 UTCandrewwiseman Hi there. Thanks for mapping! It looks like you mistakenly deleted the place=city tag for Dhaka so I will re-add it. Be careful with big, important features like this.
12017-11-02 17:57:03 UTCandrewwiseman this mountain is called Mount Obama. Please stop changing it. http://www.mercurynews.com/2009/08/04/antiguas-highest-peak-renamed-mount-obama/
12017-10-27 19:55:06 UTCandrewwiseman Thanks for mapping! Buildings are usually going to be rectangular though, make sure to use the imagery to find those right angles

12017-10-24 17:42:41 UTCandrewwiseman Hello again. I see you have been changing large apartment towers to small houses and adding fanciful names from the fictional Rainspell Island (https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/173222225#map=18/1.29389/103.82931) and adding something called "Gaga Base" and added a reservoir that used to b...

12017-02-26 08:11:45 UTCHarald Hartmann Hi carlitos gomez, this changeset looks like an import (14782x man_made=water_well). Where was this import discussed and documented? (https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Guidelines)

52017-03-03 14:05:05 UTCcarlitos gomez Hi Edvac
Sorry for my late reply, I was on field mission
This data have been shared by CDIG (Centre de Documentation et d'Information Géographique du Tchad) in early 2016. In theory these data is public (I'm in the process of requesting confirmation from my contacts in Chad)
62017-03-03 14:18:37 UTCHarald Hartmann The problem is, that public data isn't public data. In Germany we have also public OpenData, but: The "attribution" obliges the data user to name the respective data provider. This doesn't match the OpenStreetMap License Policy, and therefore this (OpenData) isn't useable in OpenStreetMap ...
72017-03-03 16:01:43 UTCandrewwiseman But if he gets confirmation from the data provider then it will be fine, correct?
82017-03-03 16:08:18 UTCHarald Hartmann If he pays attention to the import guidelines,
and documents it in the wiki (for transparacy, legal and license issues),
and corrects the import,
and so on, yes, then everything will be fine.

122017-03-06 15:41:33 UTCcarlitos gomez Hi edvac
Add data manually: ok for digitization some infrastructures but I do not think that is a good idea if there are 500, 1000 or 2000 points to add.
Freaky, some members of the OSM community met for me (mostly humanitarian staff) just encourages the opposite.

12017-02-21 19:18:55 UTCandrewwiseman Hi there, I saw your edits, do these things all exist? They don't seem to show up on imagery and the names don't seem correct for a Spanish speaking country. If you are testing out OpenStreetMap that's fine, just make sure to remove your tests after you created them. Thanks!
12017-01-27 18:03:03 UTCandrewwiseman Hi, please only add things that exist on the ground to the map.
12016-12-24 02:59:08 UTCandrewwiseman Hi Jeffrey, I saw your edit and I've heard that too. Where did you read it?
22016-12-24 17:21:04 UTCToeBee Please do not add fictional things to OpenStreetMap. I have removed this edit. You are welcome to experiment with Pokemon Go by adding actual features that are missing and observing their effect on the game.
12016-12-23 05:36:39 UTCChetan_Gowda Hi Dra9on107, Welcome to OpenStreetMap (OSM). You can edit good features on OSM to create database. Please go through http://learnosm.org/en/beginner/ to learn some basic editing. Once again, you can reply for this discussion to know much about OSM.
22016-12-23 06:47:37 UTCDavidKewley Chetan_Gowda, there are two chaotic footways here that do not improve the map. They appear to be attempts to get Pokemons to spawn -- I'm seeing this in my region too (25 new users today adding footways, some mentioning Pokemon). See any reason not to delete the two footways at this location?
32016-12-24 02:54:30 UTCandrewwiseman Maybe we can find out where they are hearing about this?
42016-12-24 03:07:18 UTCDavidKewley I think the instigation may include these two sources:
