12017-10-06 23:40:22 UTCiandees Hello! It looks like Disney fans are a little upset that you marked this construction area as Star Wars Hotel ( Can you talk about where you found this information?
12017-10-02 21:05:50 UTCb-jazz This can't possibly be an actual footpath, can it? I don't see any paths in imagery and it zigzags through houses and yards. Should this be deleted? Was it an editing error?
22017-10-02 23:02:54 UTCiandees This looks like a Pokemon edit. I would recommend deleting it.
32017-10-02 23:14:23 UTCb-jazz Will do.
12017-09-10 05:54:30 UTCmanings Instead of the name tag, could the fixme be used instead?
22017-09-10 22:17:41 UTCianmcorvidae I'm not entirely sure I agree with the method, but this makes sure a redaction wouldn't silently remove correct names, at least. Of course, it's still removing accurate information, but I'll personally take it over a nearly-silent DWG redaction.
32017-09-10 23:02:28 UTCiandees Agreed. Please stop making automated edits like this.
42017-09-19 05:36:51 UTCDr Kludge This is part of the chdr google issue. We cannot tell if these names are clean. I am waiting for Frederick to determine how he will redact the google inspired way names. I was hoping to start the correction from this change/way version forward. However, Frederick man remove all name tags. I ...
52017-09-19 05:43:17 UTCDr Kludge Oh! I was waiting to get going 22 days ago.
62017-09-19 06:36:14 UTCDr Kludge
I sent an email to Frederick. I am wanting to get started on this fix up but need to wait on what he is going to do.
72017-10-13 14:17:38 UTCn76 I sure wish this redaction had been done by removing the name value and adding a fixme=chdr_USA_AZ_name_fixup_required tag.

That would have been just as easy for an editor to find and fix. Now, two months on, there are still some roads to fix. But anyone trying to us OSM for maps or navigation in...
12017-09-06 16:49:20 UTCiandees Hi Tom! Good to see you editing. This looks pretty great to me!
22017-09-06 18:56:52 UTCtomschenkjr Thanks! Will these edits later become apparent in the labeling of the buildings? That is, Ryerson Elementary School -> Laura S Ward?

P.S. This edit arose because we use OSM+Leaflet for our application. A staff members at OEMC--who is monitoring safety near schools as part of back-t...
12017-09-01 19:32:06 UTCmarkscalf Ian looks like this was added a long time ago; I am helping with some of the tiger cleanup in this area. Is this island legit?
22017-09-01 19:40:49 UTCiandees Hi Mark. This changeset was from a GNIS import way back when. They were digitized from old USGS topo maps and can very well be wrong. If other data (satellite, local observation) doesn't show this stuff then I'd say it can be deleted.
12017-09-01 18:03:22 UTCiandees Hi! It looks like you added a line in the middle of the water and tagged it as a road. Is this a ferry or boat operator route? If so, it should be tagged with route=ferry instead of highway=service. Can you provide more information about the service you're trying to map? I doesn't look like anyone o...

22017-08-15 01:05:59 UTCiandees Howdy! Please reconsider using multipolygons with as the border for parks. Very rarely do the park boundaries actually lay *on* the road, but rather on the parcel of land offset from the road. Using a multipolygon with the road makes it much harder to adjust the border of a park to match on the grou...
32017-08-15 03:30:54 UTCuserJeff Hi. I'm relatively new to OSM and I like the feedback. But some thoughts...

I've noticed this is not a common way to represent parks. But the narrow and irregular gaps between roads and separately drawn park boundaries that I've seen doesn't seem optimal either. Looks a tad sloppy. If the park b...
42017-08-28 20:43:48 UTCneuhausr @userJeff, OpenStreetMap is at core a project to create data which can be used to make maps, do routing, etc. Over years, guidelines have formed about the best way to do that, such as "map what's on the ground". You are mostly talking about the rendering of how the data looks and making as...

22017-08-07 15:36:13 UTCstevea hey, oormilavinod. I appreciate your welcome, though I've been an OSMer for most of the project (>8 years), I was named Mapper of the Month earlier this year, and presented talks at SOTM-US conferences in 2014 and 2016.

32017-08-07 16:36:39 UTCiandees Steve, if you look at the changeset via OSMCha (likely the tool that oormilavinod was looking at), you'll see that there's an "impossible angle" tag on the changeset: I suspect they thought you created it, when in fact you just modified the wa...

12017-08-03 13:06:50 UTCiandees Welcome to OSM! I noticed you added a path and a park, but there doesn't seem to be a path or a park there. It looks like a house. Please make sure you only add things that exist in real life to OpenStreetMap. I reverted this change in
12017-08-01 14:03:17 UTCKomяpa Hi! Please so not remove the service road spikes on the edges of the parking - these are essential for functioning of ride sharing services' airport queues and geofencing.
22017-08-01 14:53:40 UTCiandees What's that mean, Komяpa?
32017-08-01 15:04:35 UTCJohn Du Hart Komяpa is this requirement documented somewhere? It adds unnecessary noise to the map

12017-07-25 20:15:45 UTCUnhallowed These are very clearly false changes done to the map. Please remove the park and parking. Going forward if you wish to improve your Pokemon Go experience I suggest making legitimate changes, not fake ones that will eventually be removed.

12017-07-25 13:02:36 UTCiandees Thanks for adding to OpenStreetMap! Most of the things you've added here already exist on the map, so I'm going to revert those duplicates.

12017-07-14 15:48:36 UTCiandees Welcome to OSM! When drawing a house or building, please make sure you only outline the house, not the whole property. I've updated the outline for you. Have a great Friday!
12017-07-14 01:03:19 UTCiandees Hi! Thanks for adding information to OpenStreetMap. It's important to know that OpenStreetMap is designed to hold real map data that can be verified by others. Please don't add fake or fictional data to OSM.

42017-07-14 01:31:38 UTCiandees OSM is a community project, and if it's obvious from the information we have (typically satellite imagery, public road data, and city/county park websites) that a feature doesn't exist, we will definitely delete it. Please don't add incorrect information.
12017-07-12 00:02:40 UTCiandees Hi! Thanks for adding your business here.

Please note that when we specify addresses the street name should be expanded and correctly capitalized. I'll go ahead and fix this for you.

22017-07-10 19:27:30 UTCiandees The SEO spammers don't listen to changeset comments, so there's no need.
32017-07-10 19:30:48 UTCuser_5359 The hope dies last. But as an assessor of the first changesets of new accounts, I would like a hint, if a change was already made.
42017-07-10 19:40:37 UTCiandees Makes sense, I can do that.
12017-07-09 13:58:39 UTCiandees Welcome to OSM! Thanks for adding to OSM, but it looks like the street grid you added doesn't exist. I'm going to revert this change, but feel free to continue contributing real data to OSM that you see in the real world.
12017-06-11 03:02:27 UTCiandees I reverted these edits. Please don't add fake data to OpenStreetMap. Only add data that actually exists in the real world to OSM, not fictional or unverifiable data.
22017-06-11 08:17:05 UTCPiskvor OTOH, there _is_ a site for mapping fictional places:
12017-06-01 20:35:58 UTCiandees Thanks for adding these points! These kind of changes are really helpful in OpenStreetMap.
12017-06-01 15:43:24 UTCiandees Welcome to OSM! Thanks for your contribution. I've reverted your change because the entire area is not a playground, it is a park. The small area that was already marked as a playground is the kind of area we specify as a playground. The park is the area surrounding a playground.
12017-05-31 16:36:06 UTCiandees I've reverted your change because these are clearly not parks. Please add only real places to OpenStreetMap. Thanks!
12017-05-28 20:15:34 UTCiandees Hi, welcome to OSM. I've removed this park and path because they appear to simply be a backyard to a house. Please don't add fake data just to improve the Pokemon game.
12017-05-12 01:24:52 UTCiandees Welcome to OSM! The edits you make to the map data should reflect reality. I'm going to revert your changes here.
12017-05-12 00:39:53 UTCiandees Hi! Please note that things you add to the map should exist in real life. I'm going to delete the church and park that you added because it doesn't appear that either of these things exist.
12017-05-07 13:58:18 UTCiandees Hi! Thanks for adding to OSM. Please make sure you only add things that exist in real life. Adding fake data just makes the map worse for everyone.

12017-05-02 08:48:59 UTCflorinbadita_telenav Hi Doug, can you be more specific about the problem/s that you are referring.

From what i have seen in this changeset, the only difference is that the names are expanded.

If this is a local rule you should specify it...
22017-05-02 15:23:16 UTCViajero Perdido The suffixes (NW, SW, etc.) are how the City of Calgary spells the names, same with Edmonton. The OSM wiki pages for Calgary and Edmonton use NW, SW, etc. in their examples; the latter page is more explicit than Calgary's with naming examples.

So NW is literally correct, and "Northwest"...
32017-05-02 18:32:56 UTCiandees Hi Viajero. Please check your language and be more kind to others participating in OpenStreetMap. We're all trying to make the map better, and responding like that isn't really helping anyone.
42017-05-02 18:33:47 UTCiandees (Same to you, abDoug)
52017-05-03 14:19:17 UTCabDoug Names that are just plain wrong!
62017-05-03 14:23:16 UTCabDoug They are not making the map better, they are making it worse! Yes, I'm pissed off.

72017-05-03 14:40:54 UTCiandees All of that might be true, but you only make yourself (and our map project) look bad and keep people from listening to your opinion when you use such negative and insulting language.

12017-04-28 20:41:53 UTCiandees Hi! Thanks for making this change and adding to OpenStreetMap. In general, a living street does not allow cars, and it looks like this street allows cars so that the residents can get to their driveways. I adjusted it to "residential" road type.
12017-04-28 20:40:06 UTCiandees Hi! Thanks for adding these paths to OpenStreetMap. Please make sure you tell us what sort of line these are by selecting a preset from the menu on the left in the editor. I picked "footway" for these. Please let me know if you have any questions.
12017-04-26 21:12:41 UTCiandees Thanks for adding and improving all these trails! This is great work.
12017-04-26 21:05:05 UTCiandees Hi! Thanks for adding to OpenStreetMap. Please make sure you add details to these lines rather than just outlining the buildings. For example, when you added this house, you should select the "Area" option and choose the "House" preset. Make sure you go through the walkthrough fo...

12017-04-13 20:32:57 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

just have a look on large lowercase.

Have fun mapping!
22017-04-13 20:35:05 UTCiandees I think what Spanholz meant is that you should not be afraid to use capital letters when giving something a name. Thanks for your changes, Vespersis!
12017-04-13 20:11:24 UTCiandees Hi there! Thanks for your contributions to OSM. I reverted this change because the area you made into a park is actually a playground, which should be marked differently. The area surrounding the playground is already (correctly) marked as a park.
12017-04-13 19:26:06 UTCiandees Hi! Thanks for your contribution to OSM. I reverted your change because the park outline you added did not correspond with anything on the ground. Please make sure you map only the outline of the park, not a large area around the park. Let us know if you have any questions!
12017-04-13 18:44:27 UTCiandees Hi! Thanks for your map edit. I'm reverting your change because it's pretty unlikely that a park like this would change to remove a bunch of well-established roads. This map is a shared resource: please don't add fake data for your Pokemon Game.
12017-04-11 15:46:55 UTCiandees Hi! I appreciate your interest in updating the map, but it looks like you deleted a bunch of minor roads that should still exist. Do these roads no longer exist?
22017-04-11 15:56:50 UTCSTAS Inc That is correct. The only road is Archbishop Lefebvre Ave. and it is a dead end into the property. It has only one entrance off of Ranson. The shape is not quite the same, but I don't know how to fix that.
12017-04-11 00:14:46 UTCiandees Hello! I reverted your changes because they placed business information on a road intersection. Please add business information to a point over the actual business, not the road. Thanks!
12017-04-05 23:51:13 UTCiandees Thanks for adding information to the street you live on! Please consider also adding your house and your neighbors' houses as well.
12017-04-04 15:03:41 UTCiandees Thanks for adding these buildings to the map! If you have some extra time it would be really helpful to add the house numbers, too.
12017-04-02 14:49:50 UTCiandees Hello! I am undoing your change here because the "name" tag should represent the name used locally. We don't include the English name in parentheses.
12017-03-21 12:55:00 UTCiandees Hi! Welcome to OSM. Please don't add incorrect data to our map to give yourself an advantage on Pokemon Go. OpenStreetMap is designed to be an accurate map of the world and thousands of people work together to make that happen. I'm going to revert your changes to remove the incorrect data.
12017-03-20 23:21:51 UTCiandees Thanks for adding this park! Keep up the good work.
12017-03-20 23:16:05 UTCiandees Hi! I reverted your changes because the line didn't seem to coordinate with any real-life feature and the trees you converted into a park don't seem to align with any park in the area. If you have any questions about this change, please let me know by replying to this message.
12017-03-20 21:47:14 UTCiandees Good afternoon! Thanks for adding this data to OpenStreetMap. In the future, could you please try to hit save in the editor before you move on to another area of the map? This makes reviewing changes easier for the rest of the community. Thanks!
12017-03-20 19:25:48 UTCiandees Hi mrmart! Please don't make test edits to the map. This map data is used by services around the world and we only accept real features that can be verified on the ground. If you'd like to practice editing OSM, please let me know and I can point you to a test server.
12017-03-20 19:24:36 UTCiandees Hi there! I removed your point because it didn't contain any useful information. If you're trying to add your business to OpenStreetMap please make sure to select a preset in the editor. If you'd like a simpler interface, check out

12017-03-20 17:33:41 UTCiandees Hi there! This house doesn't seem to be a lake, so I'm reverting your change. Please keep in mind that these changes are applied to the real map – if you'd like to play around or make test changes, let me know and I can point you in the right direction.
12017-03-20 16:48:10 UTCiandees Hi! Thanks for adding these parks. I made a small change to the three you added recently. When creating the park outline, please apply the "Park" preset to the outline, not to a point on the interior of the polygon.
12017-03-09 22:47:01 UTCiandees Hiya! I reviewed this change and removed the apartment area you made here because we put the outline around individual buildings instead of the whole apartment area. I drew the outlines of the individual apartment buildings so you can add more details (like addresses) later, if you want.
12017-03-09 22:39:19 UTCiandees Hello! Thanks for improving OpenStreetMap. I made a quick change to your edit so that the "pool" area only encompasses the actual pools, not the whole park. Let us know if you have any questions about mapping!
12017-03-08 22:24:54 UTCiandees Hi communish! Thanks for your contributions to OpenStreetMap. Please make sure your edits are based on things others can check on the ground. These landuse polygons don't appear to be correct, so I removed them and adjusted the woods polygon to match the area behind the stores.
12017-03-08 22:14:02 UTCiandees Hi there! Thanks for your contribution to OpenStreetMap. It doesn't look like these power lines are actually built. If they're under planning or you're just testing, please wait until they're real before adding to OSM.
12017-03-01 22:31:41 UTCiandees Hi there! Thanks for your contribution. Please keep in mind that edits to OpenStreetMap are meant to represent things in the real world that you can verify. If you'd like to create a map to share with others, let me know and I can point you to some excellent tools.
12017-02-28 01:53:17 UTCiandees Awesome! Thanks for your contributions to OSM. Keep it up and let me know if you have any questions.
12017-02-22 00:12:42 UTCiandees Welcome to OSM, nelsonseyes! Thanks for your contributions, and feel free to send along any questions you might have about the map or editing.

52016-05-29 19:56:38 UTCiandees What're you asking?
62016-05-29 19:57:41 UTCEzekielT I thought OSM requires you to put a changeset comment (in the old days, people did not have to).
72016-05-29 19:59:30 UTCiandees It does. The comment is `(no comment)`. It's Vespucci's default changeset comment.
82016-05-29 20:02:58 UTCEzekielT Who is Vespucci? Sorry if I'm causing you trouble, but I'm curious......
92016-05-29 20:04:35 UTCiandees Vespucci is an Android OSM editor.
