This way: does not look like a river to me. Can you please correct this?

22017-08-18 08:57:07 UTCfreebeer After a quick review, all this user's changesets outside Nigeria, that is - in Texas, should be reverted, as they add fictional data. They all use this same changeset comment. See the nearby `MY HOUSE' to the northeast with some 250 metre walls... And the TRAIN STATION to the north...
32017-08-18 09:07:43 UTCsaikabhi Hello,

Thanks for catch. Can you go ahead and revert/fix this user's other edits also?

12017-08-07 12:54:53 UTCsdoerr OK, so you didn't like my idea of retaining the node (with its useful address information) and modifying the tea-room-related tags to effectively 'comment them out'?
22017-08-08 10:38:48 UTCJ H Baldwin Sorry, this was my first attempt at modifying map data and I'm unsure of the protocol. (Perhaps I won't try any more.) I didn't intend to upset anyone. If you wish to retain the node with its information, o.k., but I can't see the point of retaining nodes simply for possible future use. After all, t...

42017-08-09 17:05:05 UTCsdoerr J H Baldwin, I hope you won't be put off editing by my comment above. Maybe I was a bit curt - sorry!
12017-08-07 00:27:36 UTChadw The name:en doesn't make sense. I'm also concerned that gesperrt isn't really part of the name, but is actually meta data. The fact that it isn't capitalised adds weight to that concern.

There is also no need for name:de if it is the same as name.

If you add name:en, it should be because tha...

32017-08-08 10:26:57 UTChadw "(closed)" would be meta data and should not form any part of the name.

(I too think is harming the map. Normally users don't respond to changeset comments, but this user has also posted to a forum. I think I will add a map note as well.)
42017-08-08 11:05:33 UTCHighfidelity Hello Freibier and hadw
I am using osm regularly via maps me and wanted to contribute not knowing the conventions. Sorry when I did something wrong. Appreciate your support how to deal with such information inthronisiert future. Fact is that the city has set up a plate that states in German languag...
52017-08-08 11:19:01 UTChadw Is this a restriction on entry at this particular point, or is it a restriction on the whole length? In the latter case, you should add an access=no tag to the main feature.

In the former case, you should add the appropriate barrier=* tag to the point on the way that people are not allowed to pa...
62017-08-08 11:27:32 UTChadw I notice that most of the Hoedinger Tobel is already mapped as access=no. It is only the westernmost bit that isn't. There is also a change from track to path, where the access changes, which I suspect is not real. As it is on administrative boundary, I think different sources have been used for ...
72017-08-08 13:57:19 UTCHighfidelity o.k.
will check how I can Change that.
The plate states that People should not enter the "tobel = valley". No reason is given, but I regarded this as valid for the whole pass. Whill check how I can Change that.

12017-08-04 10:24:54 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

if you see buildings that are rectangular in real life but not in OSM. Just make them rectangular by pressing "s" in your editor. Also footways should always be connected to other roads otherwise navigation/routing will not be possible.
22017-08-04 23:23:03 UTCinputsolution Thank you for the tips! Should I be connecting footways to roads, sidewalks, or both? Also, do you know if the 2 un-marked lines beside most roads are meant to be sidewalks? I've been adjusting them to sidewalks as i progress.
32017-08-06 06:27:59 UTCfreebeer Hi,
Without a precise example, I can only note that from my observations in Canada, the ``unmarked lines'' beside most roads may well be address (housenumber) interpolation, which can be seen in the area of your work at zoom level 17 and above, with real-or-planned numbers at the ends of the lines ...
12017-08-01 18:14:18 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I don't suppose you are aware that OSM is a live worldwide database that is able to instantaneously change the characteristics of hundreds of folks maps. I hope you can realise that the live database is not the place to conduct tests. (Tests can be done off line ...
22017-08-01 22:01:11 UTCluciecohen Hi Bernard,
My apologies - I didn't appreciate the nature of the programme. Thank god I didn't do more damage! Thanks for being so polite in your response - I'll leave the site alone in future.

22017-07-26 13:21:24 UTCfreebeer Hi,
If one views the DigitalGlobe Standard aerial imagery, or for that matter Mapbox, I see an area at the time in construction. I assume this has been completed, and this user has added this info with iD based on local knowledge, without realising other imagery newer than the default Bing is avai...
32017-07-26 13:30:57 UTCfreebeer Actually, by manually adding the ESRI aerial imagery as background (not yet allowable as such for tracing into OSM) I can see the completed-mostly carpark with painted lines, and the actual pond, as suspected, not aligned to the approximate drawn data, but close enough to confirm the user's intent. ...
12017-07-01 16:23:47 UTCuser_5359 Welcome to OSM! Unfortunately there exists no bridge in the OSM data.But you mean the road does not cross the river Manson Mill Creek? If so, the road must be divided.

If you need help: You are welcome!!
22017-07-01 17:57:59 UTCbeemerphile There was a bridge which was destroyed over 30 years ago. The center of the missing bridge is one of the corners of my property.

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!

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,

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,
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.

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: Thanks for bringing this to my notice.

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 Landuse and leisure tags can't be given to one feature. Can you check this?


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 . At the same time I can see an unmarked pitch visible to the northeast on the ...
