12017-03-28 21:50:36 UTCwoodpeck You have aligned this one island with Bing imagery, but the three nearby islands were horribly out of sync with imagery and you haven't even made an attempt to repair them too. Why the focus on this one island? Have you made this edit as part of a MapRoulette task, and if yes, have you been instruct...
22017-03-30 02:43:25 UTCJames Millar I found this island through a MapRoulette challenge, I’m part of a small group who are attempting to improve the alignment of these islands using MapRoulette and JOSM.

There have been worrying changes such as this elsewhere; you simply can't rely on Bing imagery where it might be offset (which is anywhere that you don't have something else to corroborate it).
Can you explain who the "small group" are?
Your profile doesn't say anything abou...
42017-04-19 02:09:13 UTCJames Millar Hi Andy,
We also use Mapbox, and by using a combination we can usually make improvements to these islands regardless of potential Bing offset. Alternatively we make the decision to not make any edits in an area (we do this often). Can you point me to some of the worrying changes? I can always fix t...

Also, you're saying "we" again. Who exactly are "we"?
Best Regards,
Andy
12017-04-18 10:17:22 UTCSomeoneElse Hi James, as per the comment on https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/47114137 can you explain how you know the alignment is correct here? Can you describe what you did to check it?
Best Regards,
Andy

Thanks for the comment.

I think that this small island looks better now due to these changes. Do you know if Bing is offset here? It would be great to know for sure, but until then this feature has been improved significantly accor...
32017-04-19 07:51:24 UTCSomeoneElse Hi James,
Unfortunately "looks better" doesn't always mean "is better" - if it's in the wrong place, it's still wrong, like Monty Python's parrot with the "beautiful plumage" is still dead.
In this case there don't seem to be any local GPS traces (even on the nearby h...
