22018-06-30 02:18:22 UTCAdamant1 No worries. I seem to be getting an ever growing group of stalkers lately. I prefer that though over no accountability. I was actually never clear on the copyright issue anyway. So I'm glad its being brought up.
In this particular case there was nothing explicitly stating the information was copyr...

12018-07-01 14:49:31 UTCNakaner Hi Gregory,

are you sure that this hotel is really located in Florida? https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/5720393422

Are you sure that "Tumblr Ridge" is the correct name of the municipality? OSM doesn't know any feature of that name. Is it a spelling error?

Best regards

32018-06-29 09:31:12 UTCmadhepura Amazing - thanks!
42018-06-29 09:50:22 UTCfreebeer No problemo.
Do note that in both cases, the revert action was not 100% successful, so you may find a bit here and there that needs to be fixed by hand,
Not too much, but just to keep in mind as you work further in this area.
52018-06-29 10:34:50 UTCmadhepura Alright - I will have another look.

12018-06-24 14:59:41 UTCmueschel Hi,
these edits on ~100 stores look a lot like an edit for SEO.
You're introducing many new tags, don't add any source of the information.
Please spend some time to change all these POIs to use common tags like they are described in the Wiki.
22018-06-27 08:27:26 UTCfreebeer also, what do the fields like copyrights=AAP and google_id have to do with the OSM requirements for non-encumbered data?
It seems the source of the data is tainted or not allowable, and here I would suggest a revert to v2, considering I could not find useful licence info about mapk.in with a google...
32018-06-27 11:02:03 UTCcat_crash Why you have decided that it is encumbered data?
42018-06-30 10:29:28 UTCmueschel - The source you added is not a valid URL, we can not check it.
- You added a "copyrights" tag, which implies non-conformity with ODbL
- most of the tags you added do not follow any established tagging schemes

There are at least 16 shops that should be reverted in my opinion. The info...
52018-07-04 13:33:23 UTCcat_crash 1) any references how "validation" process looks like? Actualy I'm owner of mentioned mapk.in resource
2) I do.
3) All non-compliant tags were removed in next update
Any other concerns?
12018-06-25 04:01:52 UTCPaul Johnson You're probably boned, since the internet doesn't forget and public records entities like your local government are likely to re-add the address to the map anyway.

But what is clear is randomly editing OpenStreetMap is not the way to accomplish your goal, and degrades the map for everyone.

could you address https://www.openstreetmap.org/note/1437191 pointing here?
I suspect a recreational_ground tagging would fit better than commercial or the park it had been, and a lot of GNIS and similar tagging info got lost too.

22018-06-27 13:20:18 UTCAdamant1 My bad. Its clearly not a commercial area.

22018-06-20 03:23:14 UTCuser_5359 Hello! Please don’t use abbreviation for highway names. For details read https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Names#Abbreviation_.28don.27t_do_it.29
32018-06-20 04:19:29 UTCAdamant1 Personally I don't. I was just pointing out there might be cases where they should be used since its what the street sign says.

42018-06-20 06:36:02 UTCfreebeer Hallo Ad Aman T-1,
What may be printed on a physical sign will reflect a policy that transforms an official name into a shortened or abbreviated version for cost savings or brevity or modern spiffiness or whatever.
That is, these streets do not have the official and spoken name of Str or St., but ...
52018-06-21 01:45:59 UTCAdamant1 Hello Freebears,
Points taken. I would image what ever benefit there is, if there really are any, to keeping abbreviated names in cases where the local government has them in some cryptic document in a basement, probably isn't worth the time and effort it would take. I wasn't aware of the short_nam...

I notice you changed the name:en/de/fr to 'moment' but left the name tag as 'Les Terroirs'. Should that tag also be changed? And out of pure curiousity, what is the relevance of having tags in multiple languages if the name in all of those is the same wouldn't the name=moment tag be s...

12018-04-29 05:36:48 UTCchachafish Hello, thank you for your additions to OSM. Many roads you added in Denver do not exist. You are using old imagery. You created roads directly through buildings, which are clearly mapped. Please use the most current imagery when mapping. Thank you.
22018-04-29 13:24:20 UTCWitcher_UA Hello. And thanks for the comment. For all of geometry, I added, I used Mapbox imagery. These imagery are the latest available in JOSM. I checked that some geometries do not exist in Google Maps 2018, but for legal reasons, I can not use it in JOSM. Thank you.

42018-06-04 21:21:30 UTCMiguel Curto I'm referring to paths, these are mostly mountain bike trails (marked as such with mtb scale) built propusedly for mtb.Judging from the "standardized" reply I guess your bot is misbehaving, any chance to put all these with original names back or do I need to ( re) enter all those by hand?

42018-06-04 07:55:24 UTCNakaner Hallo,

52018-06-04 08:06:49 UTCBlackKnight001 Nein, das stimmt so nicht. Jegliche Grundbuch-Eintragungen beruhern auf diesen Karten und somit auch die Wegerechte. Aber es ist schon in Ordnung, den Weg als "razed" zu kennzeichnen. Mach du das doch bitte!
62018-06-04 08:37:47 UTCNakaner Worauf die Grundbucheintragungen beruhen, ist irrelevant. Die Hessische Vermessungsverwaltung beansprucht Urheberrechte auf ihre Kartenwerke und somit sind diese als Quelle tabu. Ende der Diskussion.

more detailed response: #mapsme spam.
I'm leaving this and the nearby spammy nodes intact as potentially the address information from the names given could be useful.
Do I have a problem with maps.me? You bet. Visit Nepal, f'rinstance.

22018-05-29 21:42:16 UTCfreebeer looking at one or two of these many changesets, it appears that John wanted to delete many untagged ways, all the ones I checked for which the previous editor was some variant on osm-saint-louis or so.

12018-05-29 09:52:49 UTCMateusz Konieczny I have no idea what happened here, I modified only some objects to avoid globe-spanning bbox :(

12018-04-17 09:58:04 UTCAdamant1 Hi there. Whats with this Pidgie thing? Is it a home based business or something? If so, I don't think we map for those. Also, the website looks rather not relevant to anything, especially OSM, because it is essentially empty.

Thanks
22018-04-17 19:24:23 UTCsquidpickles It's a name for a household, which gets used for a number of public events. It's listed as a business in Google Maps, since that's the easiest way to classify it, but it's useful for people to be able to specify "Pidgie" and find it on a map.

The website does not have much public-facing...
32018-05-13 10:32:48 UTCAdamant1 Just an fyi, its pretty easy to get fake businesses listed on Google maps. There's a bunch of news stories about it. Also, we don't usually use Google Maps as a reference and if this a house hold, I don't think them having backyard parties or movie nights in their living rooms counts for inclusion. ...
42018-05-14 00:01:02 UTCsquidpickles It's certainly not a "fake home business". Nobody ever said it was a business, just that it's listed on Google Maps that way (by the way, Google reports 180 different requests for directions using "Pidgie").
Lots of households in Berkeley go by names; graduates of the student co...
52018-05-14 01:04:13 UTCAdamant1 Sorry. I didn't mean it as an insult to the nature of the place. It was mostly in respect to it being called a business on Google Maps.

Why have you chnaged https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/23618254/history from living_street to residential? There's no reason why you can't have parking rules on a living street and no reason why people can't drive there, it's just a different sort of street.
If you have got any qu...
22018-04-12 06:37:42 UTCcharabor If you check access for such street before my edits it was motor vehicle access=not specified,
which restricts vehicle movement & the tag is ambiguous,since vehicle movement & mapillary data shows that vehicle is permitted I felt it should be modified.
32018-04-12 07:43:35 UTCSomeoneElse > If you check access for such street before my edits it was motor vehicle access=not specified
Where does it say that?
If you have got any questions please do ask other mappers - don't just change a road from a type that you don't understand to one that you do.
42018-04-12 08:47:23 UTCcharabor it was there in the living street bBEFORE I EDITED,thats why I updated the street attribute,please read the comment carefully before replying back.

12018-03-07 15:14:37 UTCfreebeer Hallo,
I am afraid that in this changeset, you used bad satellite imagery to move a building 5 metres, when using much better aerial overflight imagery from the ESRI Comminity up to a sharp detailed zoomlevel 21 will also show the road you bent, really does not fallow that shape.
22018-03-07 15:46:16 UTCspeaketh Hi,
Thanks for the feedback. Can you elaborate on how "good" vs "bad" imagery is determined? What is the reference/standard?
32018-03-12 02:02:05 UTCfreebeer Sorry for the delay.
There is probably a wiki page in english about aerial imageries.

12018-03-11 23:55:06 UTCfreebeer Hi,
Here you deleted a road with a name:
name \tWest County Road 400 North

As TIGER roads have been known to be inaccurat...
22018-03-12 12:55:31 UTCBernyce Canyon That's all farmland/grazing grounds and homes there, so I'm confident that road never existed at that location.
12018-03-08 15:48:39 UTCuser_5359 It would be very helpful if you read and accept the change comments. Similarly, the incorrect keys should not be used again for corrections, but rather the corrections. The value of key description has been identified as advertising and deleted as unwanted.
22018-03-11 23:21:47 UTCfreebeer If they're going to delete the opening_hours you fixed for them, perhaps they are trying to tell you it's now closed, and should be deleted from the map.

12018-03-07 14:47:26 UTCfreebeer Hallo,
Unfortunately, you have deleted an accurately-mapped building traced from aerial orthophotos, only to re-draw it crudely from very bad quality satellite imagery that can be seen to have almost ten metres of inaccuracy at this point, and is not at all sharp.
22018-03-08 16:12:26 UTCstbstbstbstb Well. Great. You might guess I'm new to this. Currently trying to figure out how to revert it.
32018-03-08 20:40:08 UTCfreebeer Hi sptphtpthpthhpthtpthtpbltt (sorry, its late, and I think you anonymised/raspberryfied your username ;-)

It's late here, so give me overnight if needed.

12018-03-09 13:55:37 UTCMapsterJoe Just curious, what sorts of things did you do with the tags? It's hard to tell with such a large changeset.
22018-03-11 20:38:31 UTCfreebeer I'm almost thinking that the TIGER/Line Identification (tiger:tlid) field can be useful for debugging the inconsistencies being pointed out by the Telenav team.
One random sample I pulled below had that deleted, I think.
Then again, other earlier changesets have purged many of those, and others be...
12018-03-09 22:26:09 UTCemergency99 What are those supposed to be?
Private Appartments?
You know, that those nodes are now live on the web, for everyone to see, right?
22018-03-11 20:08:18 UTCfreebeer They were badly positioned and without info.
Looks like it was an attempt to point out the FeWo at Schumanngasse 50: Vienna Top Apartment (their own name) which is not yet mapped to render.
(Fabelhaft? in Wien? Пфффф.)
Thanks for cleaning up the maps.me mess.
12018-03-10 03:03:20 UTCfreebeer Here you have deleted 11 service drives, which can be clearly seen in aerial imagery, giving access to buildings, a dam, parking, and what appears to be a campground.
Can you explain why you have done so?
22018-03-10 03:40:43 UTCWinfredC freebeer,
I clearly don’t know what I am doing in OpenStreetMap Map. Therefore, I will delete my account as soon as I figure out how to do so. I was trying to delete the test trails that I created.
32018-03-11 19:53:14 UTCfreebeer Hi WinfredC,
We were all beginners once. you were given useful advice by plitschepatsch (whose nick I've surely misspelt ;-) about a chance to test in a safe sandbox.
I have seen your other changesets where you have successfully deleted your own additions, so that has worked.
What I wondered is...

12018-03-11 15:58:28 UTCfreebeer Hallo,
in a quick review of this changeset, I see you deleted a number of private driveways that may have been poorly positioned or not present.
But you also deleted a named residential drive, Turkey Ridge, https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/5655961/history
This viewed in https://overpass-api.de/a...
22018-03-11 16:21:16 UTCrrkramer1 This is a private driveway to our neighbors house. In no way is it a road. It has a sign at the end of the road with the name Turkey Ridge, however this street sign is not town issued and was custom made to simply name their driveway.
32018-03-11 17:38:05 UTCfreebeer Thanks for the quick reply and explanation.
In OpenStreetMap, we also map private driveways as well as service drives and tracks not generally open to the public.
For that you can use the access=private tag.
So the houses do not receive post or deliveries to a Turkey Ridge address?
In any case, ...
42018-03-12 03:49:50 UTCrrkramer1 There is a mailbox on the end of this supposed Turkey Ridge road. But it has a Alpine Meadows address. And a number of the roads i deleted never existed or are so old that full grown trees no stand in the way of the road.
12018-03-11 15:43:24 UTCfreebeer Just curious -
Why did you trace the outline of the Wal*Mart building visible in the Mapbox aerial imagery, only to delete it so soon after?
12018-03-03 16:03:01 UTCImNotReallyANerd will the changes I made be accepted?
22018-03-04 04:56:42 UTCfreebeer I am trying to figure out what you are wanting to do. I see a lot of probable errors that have been accepted, probably in more changesets than just this one.
Can you explain what you want to map, so that either we can do it to your wishes, or better, guide you as to how to do it correctly yourself...
32018-03-06 13:00:22 UTCImNotReallyANerd I'm just trying to make a simple path that goes around the lake and back to NW 10th Ave. I've been at it for weeks but it never gets added.

12018-03-10 13:55:57 UTCfreebeer Hallo,
Here you deleted two roads, one Acadia Street which can be seen obviously was wrong, but also Sioux Street north-south.
That one can be seen present in all available aerial imageries -- under construction in the oldest, and ir seems well-used to give access to unmapped school car parking.

32018-02-24 17:16:19 UTCuser_5359 Unfortunately, the aerial photograph does not always show where the ground and the building meet. I have drawn some details in more detail, maybe the inner courtyards have to be drawn in.

12018-02-24 00:28:06 UTCfreebeer Hallo,
please make sure you connect your driveways to the appropriate street.
Also, the micromapping you are doing here serves to draw attention to this area and this house in particular. As you have previously posted allegations of a sexual predator in the neighbourhood, note that OSM does not m...
22018-02-24 02:15:52 UTCRubikCubical Ok I found the comment section now!

I will micro-map the entire block to keep my friend's house from being too attention-drawing.
32018-02-24 22:09:09 UTCstevea Something ridiculous is going on here, ivan999. There are many people watching what you are doing and you may be asked to leave our project unless you map according to our principles. Your behavior is noted.


For example, the series of buildings at the house immediately to the left of the spee...
42018-02-25 01:54:57 UTCRubikCubical Is it the micro-mapping that is inappropriate or the structures that are about 4 feet apart? Should I remove all of the micromapping?
52018-02-25 02:49:10 UTCstevea Before we get to that, please explain why you used to use the username ivan999 and now you use RubikCubical. That seems disingenuous and doesn't endear you to the good graces of this project. Yellow alert to you.
62018-02-25 02:52:34 UTCRubikCubical I did it because I'd rather have my Call of Duty username than my dogs name in this project, why does this concern you? I really do not see how this is dishonest and how it connects to my question.
72018-02-25 03:07:16 UTCstevea Changing your username is a distinct sign that you are trying to be disingenuous with your identity. In a project like this, the "currency" with which we both establish and assert our facility with the map is measured in experience, years (or months, if you show skill) and a willingness t...

92018-02-25 03:28:39 UTCstevea Much better (attitude).

102018-02-25 03:35:13 UTCstevea Very quickly, no you don't HAVE to add an address to a house. But, look at our wiki page for "building" and you'll see that "building=yes" is generic, and if you KNOW that the building is a house, "building=house" is a better tag.

Also, whatever that series of a doz...
112018-02-25 03:56:00 UTCRubikCubical Ok, I tried tagging every house a house but I might have mixed something up in there. The structure that you guys are confused about is a shading installation in the backyard, that can be covered with a sheet as a shading over the summer. Most of the time not up.
122018-02-26 23:57:25 UTCstevea A few more things: the "building" denoted by https://www.osm.org/way/563749459 (and similar ones nearby) seem likes it wants to denote a fence. For that, tag a way (not a skinny polygon like you have here) with barrier=fence. These can "link together" (if they do in real life)...

Ist building=yes denn falsch?
72018-02-22 18:41:47 UTCGerold building=house war richtiger, weil es eben in der Realität ein entsprechendes Wohnhaus ist.

Hier wird viel Wirbel um nichts gemacht!
152018-02-23 09:25:12 UTCwhb @PT-53
Ja, es gibt Anwendungen, welche building=house auswerten, z.B. OsmAnd.
Systematisches und vorsätzliches Entfernen von genauen Gebäudetypen ist nicht akzeptabel.
162018-02-23 09:34:53 UTCwoodpeck +1, alle Änderungen, bei denen Du ein "building=<irgendwas spezifisches>" auf das weniger informationskräftige "building=yes" reduziert hast, sollten rückgängig gemacht werden.

12018-02-07 20:25:35 UTCConstable don't think you have a pond in the backyard. Aerial imagery agree with me

52018-02-14 07:49:10 UTCConstable So you're trying to convince me that you actually have a pond in the backyard and this one was not a fictional one added to let some pokemon spawn?
62018-02-14 11:33:39 UTCfreebeer Actually the privacy guidelines just recently p0sted (s0rry, n0 link at hand) are quite clear that in a situati0n like this, in additi0n t0 guidelines f0r verifiability (this is a private yard with high walls), that we d0 n0t map such things.
There are excepti0ns but they d0 n0t apply here.
72018-02-14 12:21:13 UTCAdamant1 Maybe another dog puddle freebeer? What's with this new privacy thing your talking about? So no mapping swimming pools or sheds in peoples back yards now? Good luck with enforcement of that.

42018-02-07 19:55:14 UTCdesull It's brown water, not a brown place... that's why it's difficult to see from a satellite, but it does exist. I have changed it to a pond, is that better? What else would you call it?
52018-02-07 19:59:50 UTCuser_5359 This can only be decided with local knowledge. I trust therefore in your decision.

Actually, it can be seen *very* clearly in the USGS large scale imagery, which is probably very old, but taken at a time it was full of water.

12018-02-04 12:09:02 UTCuser_5359 Welcome to OSM! I can't see any lake on the aerial images. Could it be a private swimming pool?
22018-02-06 09:42:12 UTCfreebeer A swimming pool would almost certainly be in the back yard, not in full view of the road and passing pedestrians.
This area is a front yard with more tree cover than others nearby, so it could be a small landscape garden with an artificial lily pond, if it exists, it is difficult to say.

12018-01-31 05:33:34 UTCfreebeer Hi Scoop,
The changeset description you gave here had me worried, and looking at your work, which must have taken some time, the worst I feared was true.
You are working in an area which is not well served by detailed aerial imagery, and by default you have used Bing, which is a satellite imagery ...
22018-01-31 06:08:44 UTCScoop268 I see exactly what you mean... I had no idea that you could adjust the background map to align it to the overlay... I used your background imagery and see what you mean.... I would say that if you could just undo the work that I have done that would be the best.

Now that I know about the image...
32018-01-31 06:09:24 UTCScoop268 If you can delete the change sets that I have done today that would be fine.

22018-01-31 05:50:56 UTCfreebeer Hi Realj,
I am afraid you are partly correct in your changeset description.
You have moved the building to match a newer satellite image that is known not to be well aligned in many places.
The original position was traced from aerial (aeroplane) overflights that are much better corrected.
This ...
32018-01-31 06:08:57 UTCRealj KC @freebeer, I mapped it to match "bing aerial imagery". The other ones also look to be about the same. I also Checked with google maps, and it looks to be about correct.
42018-01-31 12:58:20 UTCPaul Johnson I know I marked it as good, but figured you had a reference other than "the imagery didn't line up". If everything is off, then try shifting the imagery so it lines up, having GPS traces turned on can help line up your imagery as well, since the GPS imagery layer is known good.

12018-01-28 02:17:50 UTCfreebeer Hello Katie -
This changeset description caught my eye when you mention moving roads.
And I confirmed, you are using bad Bing imagery which shows very poor alignment and correction.
Maybe you would be interested in an almost-identical discussion I am now having with https://openstreetmap.org/chan...
22018-01-30 06:13:33 UTCKatieEB13 Hi! Thanks for the tip. I was not aware of the additional imagery choices. This will help me with adding the rest of the buildings in the area (as well as undo all the road shifts). It looks like Mapbox has the closest reference to what I was shooting for.
32018-01-30 22:53:05 UTCfreebeer Hi,
Yes, Mapbox is the ``best'' but also the oldest, as it matches the ESRI Classic (oops, second time wrong) Clarity imagery provided by Bing here, and what I'm pretty sure the original roads were traced from.

22018-01-29 14:16:35 UTCfreebeer There is no reason to revert this change. The shop is correctly mapped as an area and fits perfectly with the OpenStreetMap way of doing things and is far more accurate than a single node which is a very coarse representation of an object which occupies an area.

22018-01-28 22:34:02 UTCfreebeer Hi,
About that deletion - my suggestion is that even if demolished, the outline of the building be left in the OpenStreetMap data for now.
The grounds being, the area is lacking many buildings, and imageries used to add things are years out of date, so that it's possible someone else will come in ...
32018-01-28 22:45:25 UTCloganmikel Could we then: Keep the building, but remove the name/school grounds? The problem at the moment is they combined two schools (rebuilding one), and renamed it Sterling Elementary. Because the new (combined) school is at a different location, this could cause confusion if the name is kept.
42018-01-29 00:18:37 UTCfreebeer Sure, the grounds and the name are deleted already.
Should I restore the deleted building for you? It's easy if one knows what to do. The learning may not be so trivial.
Then you can edit it to adjust as needed.

Be aware that there are two red flags you are waving, first, OSM is not the place to carry out tests, and also OSM is not a map for Pokemon Go.
Your tests are unwanted. You have deleted a footpath, that is difficult to make out in the poor available imagery, while the criteria for what is t...
12018-01-24 15:39:51 UTCfreebeer Hi Glassman,
Thanks for reverting these SEO hotel deletions.
I see here that there appears to be a retail outlet, Mattress (aagh, a Monty Python sketch) Superstore.
Would this be a general retail/shared building so that the Best Western Plus name= I see here does not apply to the entire building?...
22018-01-24 15:56:02 UTCGlassman I have reached out to 1) Bestwestern and informed them of the vandalism and asked them to have their vendor stop and 2) am attempting to contact the SEO firm - yes I know who it is - to get them to follow our practices.

12018-01-23 16:50:58 UTCneuhausr Hi, I am an area mapper, wondering why this POI got flagged for removal of data for advertising? Aside from not having the leisure=tanning_salon tag, it seems like legitimate data, and doesn't have a lot of the "description" garbage like a lot of SEO spam does.
22018-01-23 21:04:19 UTCwoodpeck I am investigating a pattern where a SEO firm has created a single account for each of their clients, and used that account to add one POI only, and added that POI with a focus on getting the business name and website URL into OSM, without respecting OSM customs (often using spammy descriptions; not...
32018-01-23 22:01:29 UTCneuhausr Fair enough, I monitor this area and I've certainly seen plenty of obvious SEO spam! However, if a business owner wants to get their business name in OSM, I hope it won't get flagged for removal just because they used their business name for their account and only did one badly tagged node. Note, I ...

22017-12-20 15:37:08 UTCiandees Yes, this was an import from many years ago. The data came from GNIS (http://geonames.usgs.gov/pls/gnispublic) and they include data for some places that don't exist.

I see you have changed your username, and are continuing to delete the same items that have caused you to receive a temporary block from the Data Working Group.
Note that what you are doing, by removing valid data from OSM, is considered vandalism....

Just thought I'd point that out, as somehow seeing this username in your comments made me have to check that out...
32017-12-19 16:03:20 UTCMateusz Konieczny I was unaware, but I tend to notify users about notes related to their edits without checking their block status (saves time for checking and AFAIK posting note to user who will not read it is not going to harm anybody).
12017-12-14 19:14:43 UTCnaoliv Hi, Juggalo_Kyle.
It seems that you did remove 4 areas which were representing some schools. For example, the White Knoll High School https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/546860888/history
Did you see something wrong with the objects, maybe? Or there was another reason to remove them?
22017-12-18 16:36:59 UTCnaoliv Juggalo_Kyle, I restored the school areas. Note that these areas are representing the school grounds and not the school building, for example.
Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any doubts.
32017-12-19 05:23:16 UTCDarth_Vader The "school grounds" detail affects apps for people who work, visit, and interact with these places in a negative way. Myself being one of them. In order to prevent this, this detail should not be mapped. Labeling the school building is detail enough. The "school grounds" detail ...
42017-12-19 09:30:54 UTCfreebeer A better philosophy for you to grasp is, OpenStreetMap documents the world as it exists.
We do not map for the app, we map reality.
We map landuse.
These are school grounds, and that is fact.
If these facts bother you, take it up with your app, it is not for OSM to pander to the apps or their us...
52017-12-19 10:24:20 UTCnaoliv Which app you are using that makes this looks like an error?
You should try to fix it in the app that you are using (by contacting the developers, maybe), instead removing a valid data that everybody else uses.
And again, please, don't remove these areas.
62017-12-19 14:47:07 UTCDarth_Vader If you insist on creating problems for the people that actually live around these places, the locals and myself, then I will create problems for everyone else by creating multiple accounts and mass deleting features all around the world.
72017-12-19 15:03:54 UTCwoodpeck Darth_Vader, what you are threatening here is computer vandalism and it is illegal in South Carolina. Participating in such activity can severely affect your school/college experience or career. Think twice before you do anything you regret later - it's not worth it.
82017-12-20 22:47:43 UTCCarnildo Naoliv, I'm pretty sure the app in question is "Pokemon Go": it doesn't spawn Pokemon on school grounds, but it does spawn them on meadows, grass, forests, and sand -- or in other words, exactly the detail that Darth_Vader has added to Carolina Springs Elementary School.
92017-12-21 11:26:45 UTCnaoliv @Carnildo it seems to be the case, indeed. Yesterday a friend also sent some links, like https://pokemongo.gamepress.gg/q-a/poke-spawns-stopped-my-city-college which says "Niantic has stopped pokemon spawning in schools."

drawn from lousy bing and not accurately following the backyard outlines, I can see how you would not recognise it.
I'll try editing it and adding detail to make it more clear and accurate

12017-12-14 19:52:52 UTCfreebeer offset appears far less, after drawing a new building, shifting it for skewed perspective, then comparing USGS, ESRI (old Bing) was less than a metre. New Bing z19 is far worse, many metres off, as we all know.

12017-12-12 05:09:04 UTCfreebeer bare rock at 168m is not borne out in the least by the aerial imagery; see my other comment calling into doubt a 120 metre elevation difference here in less than 100 metre horizontal displacement
12017-12-12 05:06:04 UTCfreebeer This alleged 185m peak is sited 100m from a woods given with elevation of 47m.
None of the houses visible in the aerial imagery give any indication of being built on such an incline.
Nor does the angled perspective of the aerial imagery hint at such a ground angle.

22017-11-02 12:11:08 UTCfreebeer Hi ljb,
As an outside observer, may I hazard a guess?
It appears that florinbadita is engaged in a project which includes finding and highlighting inconsistencies and inaccuracies within OSM and the TIGER census road data.

12017-10-24 21:59:05 UTCSafwatHalaby Hi woodpeck. I think your definition of spam is too broad. For instance, this random POI: https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4923689269
.
Yes, its editor has only one edit. And yes, the editor has a direct interest in advertising their POI. However, these facts do not make it spam. Let's analyze t...
22017-10-24 22:00:55 UTCSafwatHalaby That was one example, but a significant number of your reverts do not remotely qualify as spam, and I think no one would have had any problem if an experienced mapper had added them.
32017-10-24 22:02:35 UTCSafwatHalaby Although the intentions are clearly good, in my humble opinion this is harming the map and must be discussed.
42017-10-24 22:03:47 UTCSafwatHalaby For comparison, this is something I would flag as spam for the excessive ad tone, and I would justify its removal: https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/5135107648/history
52017-10-24 22:10:20 UTCSafwatHalaby Just another comparison to draw a clear line between spam and self-interest driven neutral edits:
SPAM: https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4885634483/history
.
Not spam: https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4989363747/history
62017-10-24 22:15:28 UTCSafwatHalaby It seems the majority of this changeset is real, clear cut spam, though.
72017-10-24 22:29:50 UTCwoodpeck SafwatHalaby, the line I have drawn is: If the self-interest mapper can at *least* be bothered to find out the proper OSM tag to describe their business, then I will only remove the spammy "description" and leave the rest in place. There are quite a few of that sort here. If, however, the ...
82017-10-25 04:43:33 UTCSafwatHalaby I agree to that line. (And I'd suggest leaving the description too if it's factual and not spammy).

92017-10-25 11:14:54 UTCfreebeer I agree with Frederick, this reads too much like self-promoting advertising that has little to do with a geographic database that is OSM, and too little like a short informative description that I would expect to find.

102017-10-25 11:26:44 UTCSafwatHalaby Thank you for the thorough comment. You changed my mind. I now agree that the attorney example is too self-promoting and could have been 3-4 words, and that its word redundancy is spammy.

12017-10-20 12:14:05 UTCGeoKitten_import Hello jonwit. Unfortunately I have had to revert this changeset because instead of importing all the buildings, you imported all nodes with no ways. I'm not sure how this happened (technical glitch?) but I am fixing it up.
22017-10-20 12:21:26 UTCjonwit It took over an hour to import the 15,000 nodes so I'm thinking the file was too large. Please revert and I will upload again in smaller batches.

62017-09-23 19:44:21 UTCSelfishSeahorse Hi
Mapping private car parks without access=private may be useful for ~1% of people (visitors) but makes this tag useless for the other 99%. (And emergency vehicles need to know where the driveways are, not the car parks.)
72017-09-24 09:42:18 UTCdatendelphin It is also of interest to pedestrians or cyclists. It's a land mark. For example one could remember "It's the building on the left, right after the car park"

92017-09-24 17:28:52 UTCSelfishSeahorse Salut and thanks for replying.
I don't think that car parks for visitors properly tagged with access=private are useless; what I wanted to say is that amenities without access key imply that they can be used by the public. Therefore, not tagging private car parks with access=private gives wrong inf...
102017-09-24 21:12:33 UTCfreebeer You are reading more into things than you should.

12017-09-22 07:09:25 UTCHarald Hartmann Hello Nini Johanna Secue. At the relation you have added `highway-path=Camino`. Did you mean the `name` instead? #newkey #typo
22017-09-22 12:08:01 UTCfreebeer Hallo Harald,
I'm not sure Camino belongs in the name field any more than Feldweg.
That said, I see this is a widespread problem in this area, including `Reserva natural' and `bosque natural', or `Estadio', which are either redundant, or better in the `description' field.
32017-09-22 12:27:55 UTCHarald Hartmann Indeed. If "camino" is spanish for "path" then it isn't the real name of the path, but if it's a hiking route named "Camino" then it's a name.

52017-08-31 18:46:59 UTCdatendelphin Zu deinem Zitat aus dem wiki: Kerb ist nur der Bordstein.
Der Grünstreifen an der Thormannstrasse ist mehr als nur ein Bordstein. Das gilt als bauliche Trennung.
62017-08-31 21:17:17 UTCSelfishSeahorse Das stimmt, allerdings ist dieser nicht durchgängig. Somit müsste man eigentlich all paar Meter einen Fussweg zur Fahrbahn hinzufügen, um zu verhindern, dass man z. B. von der Thormannstrasse 57 zur Anshelmstrasse 2a vis-à-vis via Jubiläumsstrasse geführt wird.
72017-08-31 21:21:33 UTCSelfishSeahorse Habe das Trottoir übrigens trotzdem wieder hinzugefügt. (Dachte zuerst, dass mir ein Fehler unterlaufen ist.)
82017-08-31 21:23:14 UTCSelfishSeahorse PS: Gilt der Konsens, Trottoirs als separaten footway zu erfassen, für die ganze Schweiz oder nur für Bern? Würde es nämlich gerne unter http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Switzerland/Map_Features ergänzen.
92017-09-01 09:44:29 UTCSimonPoole Ich glaube nicht, dass es -den- Konsens gibt, und als nicht Berner will ich mich da auch nicht einmischen,

12017-08-24 06:41:03 UTCGerdP Hi and welcome to OSM!

The import was more difficult than I anticip...
42017-08-31 21:10:32 UTCgetBounds Now I remember. I asked on an OS M Forum how to properly tag the crosswalks so they would render in one of the basic openstreetmap Styles. I got a snarky response so I think that turned me off for a while.
52017-09-01 04:56:11 UTCGerdP Well, many mappers don't like imports at all.
Another reason may be that there are two very different tagging systems for sidewalks, both well established.
See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Sidewalks
62017-09-01 12:10:25 UTCgetBounds Not to drag this discussion out, but since you did edit these, do you find adding sidewalks important? We could add sidewalks for much of southern Ohio over the coming years if there is interest in the OSM community to do so. We will be mapping them anyway locally outside OSM as part of our work.
72017-09-01 12:56:54 UTCGerdP I cannot speak for the community. I'd prefer the other mapping method as it is less likely to break pedestrian routing. A missing sidewalk tag on a highway=residential is rather harmiess compared to a missing connection between all the highway=footway ways.

52017-07-02 09:22:06 UTCfreebeer Look here "freebeer" (IF that is your real name), if you can't keep comments short, at least spend that wasted time doodling and scrawling over our beloved map so we don't have to read your pathetic drivel.

62017-07-02 11:08:36 UTCbeemerphile Commenting only on your edit and not your editorial, the rock abutments of the missing bridge still exist. The road is private property (mine) beginning at the left turn where E Jones Chapel ends, though it continues 150 feet past my entrance where there is a barricade. The former road past the ba...
72017-07-02 13:12:01 UTCuser_5359 Can I help one of you?
82017-07-02 16:38:21 UTCbeemerphile Hi. My objective was to have the connection between East Jones Chapel Rd. and Phillips Rd. shown as permanently impassable because of a bridge out. GPS programs route through here and cause significant confusion.
92017-07-02 17:57:14 UTCbhousel Thanks @beemerphile, I marked the bridge as `highway=destroyed` and `destroyed:highway=track`. This along with the `access=no` tag should prevent OSM-based routers from sending cars down the road. (They should not route traffic along `highway=track` anyway).
102017-07-02 18:00:05 UTCbeemerphile many thanks!

I took the liberty of interpreting your reply to me to make changes matching your description:
* Remove road name left behind after the left turn
* Add a barrier approximately where you describe; for lack of actual knowledge I picked concrete blocks, and tag...
122017-07-06 00:17:55 UTCbeemerphile Madison County Georgia still maintains and claims right of way past the power line to the line that I described. Phillips Road does go a bit closer to the creek than E Jones Chapel does, however the edits that were done should be sufficient to stop routing. Many thanks. I have even had a moving v...

12017-06-21 07:32:09 UTCmanoharuss Hi rlittle08,

Welcome to OpenStreetMap. Your interest in contributing to the map. I have observed that you have changed the school name. Are you sure this is correct, is there a way one can verify this change?
Asking, as this school's name did not change in a long time.


Thank you,

Manoha...
22017-06-22 19:16:42 UTCfreebeer Hi,
A quick googling showed both names at this address, but that the Elementary school closed in 2008, shortly after the import into OSM which has remained untouched. Therefore I am tempted to accept this change as reasonable, limiting myself to the two CA Dept of Ed results and not bothering with...
12017-04-28 05:45:05 UTCnammala Hi AT84,

Welcome and thanks for contributing to OpenStreetMap (OSM). OSM is the real map of the world and every data is very valuable. May I know the reason behind deleting highways and also adding `waterway=pond` to the `park` tag is not a valid one. Could you please make those changes please.

22017-04-28 06:28:56 UTCAT84 Nammala,
I very much do understand that every piece of data is valuable to OSM, which is why I'm providing it with the latest data of the Village of Maxwell. I am on the local board as a landscaper, and the board has recently been asking, "How can we get word out about Maxwell?", so upda...
32017-04-28 06:46:56 UTCnammala Thanks AT84 for getting back . Like the way you have mentioned each and every point clearly. Happy mapping.
Let me know if I can help you in any way.

Best Regards,
nammala
42017-04-28 19:25:59 UTCfreebeer Hi. Maxwell? Hmmm.
I'm taking a look at the area to see if I can help, and how I can avoid doing too much damage.
If the roads/paths are presently impassable due to rain, I would not delete anything, but at best, mark with appropriate access tags. After all, I spend a lot of time in the sun at ...
52017-04-28 22:33:11 UTCfreebeer I know it's rude to reply to myself, but here are my thoughts:
The roads should not have been deleted, but instead retagged as not-residential. They look like the paths I walk to my Sometimes-Underwater Spot. Which paths are, at times, impassable for me, but that is not marked as such. At other ...
12017-04-25 13:54:41 UTCchadbunn There is newer inamgery for this area than Bing and Mapbox. Local Utah imagery from 2016 and there is most definitely a park here. I will capture with Mapillary today. In the future please refrain from deleting before you have contacted me about an error in this area.
22017-04-25 13:58:05 UTCpoornibadrinath Hi,
Yeah, sorry about that. I deleted thinking it was not there, but very quickly realised that I had made a mistake. I am trying to revert my chnageset, but somehow it was not happening. I will revert my changeset. Thanks for notifying me about this.
Best,
Poornima

42017-04-25 14:09:21 UTCchadbunn NAIP Imagery from earlier this month also indicates a building here. Even Google Maps or Earth clearly indicate a building here. If you are unable to revert I will just add it back in.
52017-04-25 14:17:26 UTCpoornibadrinath Hi,
Thanks for all the clarification. I realised it when I checked it myself the second time. I was verifying newly added parks due to random edits by new mappers. Since Bing and Mapbox both didn't show the park and the park changeset had the imagery source listed as Bing, I deleted it as I could...
62017-04-25 20:30:06 UTCchadbunn This building has been verified on Mapillary.
72017-04-26 06:50:18 UTCpoornibadrinath Right, got it. Got it verified on the most recent Mapbox satellite imagery as well. The changeset has been reverted: https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/48128984#map=19/41.05891/-111.96633. Thanks for bringing this to my notice.

82017-04-26 20:23:03 UTCmvexel chadbunn, do you have JOSM configured to use Utah AGRC imagery? I have tried and failed :( I would love to be able to use it in JOSM!
92017-04-27 03:56:04 UTCfreebeer Just to butt in, without knowing the contents of the other imagery sources, I can verify that both building and park are present in the (degraded) USGS Large Scale Imagery background in Potlatch2, although only at zoom levels 16 and server-side scaled to zoom 20, with nothing for me from 17-19 here....
12017-04-26 06:33:55 UTCupendrakarukonda Hi octants,

Welcome to OpenStreetMap. According to imagery I can't see soccer pitch here https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/469284392/history#map=19/40.23083/-74.67116 Landuse and leisure tags can't be given to one feature. Can you check this?

Regards,

Upendra.
22017-04-26 07:41:22 UTCfreebeer I can clearly see that there is a soccer pitch in Bing zoomlevel 20 aerial orthophotos. The user has mapped the pitch outlines a bit too far north and likely too narrow to render with field markings on openstreetmap.de . At the same time I can see an unmarked pitch visible to the northeast on the ...

I chose to not adjust anything, as I saw the net distance is some 69 metres, while OSM.de seems to first want to add pitch markings from 80 (or 90?)m. It would not surprise me if there is a sub-regulation size pitch in use at elementary schools like here, but not being fam...
12017-04-20 12:58:36 UTCfreebeer Howdy Ms/Mr O. Ranch,
Good to see you have not abandoned OSM and have in fact tagged The Big Barn. I recommend to add names to as many things as possible, since I've done my experiments and tried to clean up my preposterous placeholders.
In my Easter mythmapping, I collected a number of i...
12017-04-04 06:07:29 UTCnammala Hi Oil Ranch,

Welcome and thanks for contributing to OpenStreetMap (OSM). OSM is the real map of the world and the data we add should be ground truth please don't add fantasy data and the names to the name tag. I have reverted your changeset. Please let me know if you need anything regarding mapp...
22017-04-04 12:30:31 UTCOil Ranch Hello. Will you please expound on what data was deemed fantasy and what tag was inaccurately populated? Intent was the truth, but perhaps I misapplied some construct? Any help in better understanding what was done incorrectly is appreciated. Kindest regards.
32017-04-04 12:39:37 UTCnammala The park you have added doesn't seem to be present in the ground and OSM is the data which is ground truth. and also the name of the park, May I know the reason behind doing it
42017-04-04 14:41:27 UTCOil Ranch Thanks for your response. Perhaps I mislabeled it "park"? The Oil Ranch is working ranch that is an theme/amusement park for families, educational field trips, and events like birthday parties and reunions. You can see the entrance at https://www.google.com/maps/@30.1155678,-95.8246921,3a...
52017-04-14 10:57:31 UTCfreebeer Greetings Oil Ranch,
I see no reason for the full revert that was carried out based on what was clearly simple mis-tagging of a theme_park tourism tag.
I took the opportunity to trace some simple rectangular building outlines in and around your theme park to try and fill in the copious whi...
