12017-03-21 00:06:03 UTCstephankn some of your buildings overlap.
22017-03-22 14:00:00 UTCDenisCarriere +1 agreed.
@Nuttapong, please look at the existing OSM data to prevent having any overlapping buildings.

12017-03-20 22:50:00 UTCstephankn Are you related to Facebook? Please document this on your user page.
12017-03-20 07:33:41 UTCstephankn You did a lot of mechanical edits without discussing them in the forum first.

Despite writing in your changeset comment the source is "knowledge", at least here you are wrong. "Seven & I Holdings" does not operate 7-Eleven stores in Thailand. This can be figured out quickly by doing some web sear...
12017-03-19 12:49:09 UTCstephankn please only put Thai script names in name:th. Use a proper editor if your software can't handle this.

12017-03-18 09:47:11 UTCstephankn This changeset geometry was uploaded later again in 46117993 with a different user's account
12017-02-11 09:39:42 UTCpitscheplatsch Hi dehr. May I know the reason behind deleting many mapped highways in this changeset? See
22017-03-08 00:13:10 UTCSomeoneElse Hi Pascal,
This changeset is I think related to . Essentially Facebook created some "clever" workflow to add roads (like they did last year that resulted in every wadi and wall in Egypt bing added as a "road" before being reverted) a...
32017-03-10 21:22:57 UTCstephankn @Andi: It's quite difficult to properly use changeset discussions as long as there is no way to find your own comments. There is code fragments to add this to the wiki page but no one works on it. Thailand has a forum where more people participate in discussions.
42017-03-10 21:58:57 UTCdehr Hi Pascal, Andi, and Stephan.

Sorry for the late response on this changeset as this is my personal account and does not see much usage. I work for Facebook and my name is David.

We were working in the dev environment and an editor accidentally uploaded their practice edits to live OSM inste...
52017-03-10 22:25:23 UTCSomeoneElse @stephankn - it is possible to find your own comments (thanks to Pascal!):

12017-03-02 22:36:26 UTCstephankn please restore named junction
22017-03-05 10:05:50 UTCBalthus★MC In this delete I assigned the junction to the same node as the Traffic Signal. Is this wrong? Has junctions to be separated from the road line and to be defined as separate points??
32017-03-10 21:19:50 UTCstephankn having it on the highway is fine. On more complex junctions it is more difficult to decide where to place it.
12017-03-02 22:35:41 UTCstephankn please restore named junction
22017-03-05 09:38:05 UTCBalthus★MC Done - is it correct? I am not 100% sure about it.
32017-03-10 21:18:08 UTCstephankn Named junction is back. Not a restore of the deleted node but a new one with the same tags than before. Lost the history, but ok, minor thing...
12017-03-09 08:43:26 UTCstephankn "Villa Bestfriend" is not thai script, so not suitable for being entered in the "name:th" key. Please enter only Thai script name here.

In many cases the Thai script name is better stated in the "name" tag in the first place, in case their typical used name is that. Depends a bit on how the compa...
12017-03-09 08:40:53 UTCstephankn "Tax Office" is not suitable for "name:de" key. I assume your software can't handle names correctly. Please consider using a proper editor. Please also correct the name tag. "name:en" for English names is more suitable. If you can get the Thai script name entered in the "name" tag it would be even b...
12017-03-04 20:59:51 UTCstephankn We are not allowed to systematically use Google Street View to get map details. Please do your own survey or use images from Mapillary who gave us permission to use it for OSM.
22017-03-05 10:26:15 UTCBalthus★MC Yes I am aware of it – the source was actually my own personal survey. In step 2 of my review I fixed the wrong sources but in this case Russ removed the my wrong name:en value – so I missed this road in the overpass turbo query. When I made this «minor change» I just let mappers know that Goo...
12017-03-01 22:15:19 UTCstephankn you seemed to have missed to take over the tagging of highway 12 when you turned it into a dual carriage highway. Would be great if you could re-visit that area and add the tags to your newly created ways.
For example this is a start: way 461335048
If you need support in finding the ways with miss...
22017-03-02 11:24:51 UTCRuss McD Hwy 12 west of here is NOT a dual carraigeway ... it may have painted islands in areas, but OSM convention dictates we draw as a single carraigeway.
Also, the where the 2372 and 2278 one way sections cross the 12, the western lanes are NOT connected to the rest of the road, making routing impossibl...
32017-03-02 22:07:31 UTCstephankn Please check out the forum for further discussion:
12017-03-02 21:40:18 UTCstephankn We should not discuss tagging in the fixme/note tags. Why does this tagging need more validation than any other tags in OSM to justify a dedicated fixme tag? If Johnny was able to provide a good source for why this is a village a proper change message is fine to document it.
22017-03-05 09:27:31 UTCBalthus★MC Okay - I got it, I guess I got too much overcautious. Do we discuss tagging in the changeset comments then?
12017-02-24 13:17:07 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
Can you please explain who you are and who you are working for? Your changeset comments (such as they are) suggest that you may be performing an undiscussed import on behalf of Facebook. Can you please ensure that you do not perform any more imports until they have been properly discussed,...

42017-02-28 16:24:18 UTCstephankn a highway=track indicates a way used for agricultural purposes. How do you distinguish these from simply unpaved roads? Do you consider it itelligent to place roads in the middle of nowhere without proper connection to the highway network? Please stop doing such low-quality edits!
52017-03-01 00:38:04 UTCVLD001 Stephan,
Thank you for your feedback. We based our tagging on a few things;
1. The commonly used tags in this area are highway=track. For Example … 68/99.4921
2. This area looks like an agricultural area based on our recent high-resolution satellite imag...
12017-02-28 16:08:52 UTCstephankn You painted "Huai Tha Son" on top of an existing reservoir (Tham Nop). What is the source of your data? I wonder which one is the correct one.
12017-02-27 06:17:37 UTCstephankn here is clearly no casino with wifi. Please only map what is there.
12017-02-23 21:32:19 UTCstephankn what is the source of the updated ref number 2018?
22017-02-28 09:27:32 UTCBalthus★MC As remembered by Survey Dec-2016, but I go there again in about 1 or 2 weeks and I will check again and I will make a photo of the road sign for Mapillary - ok?
12017-02-23 20:34:30 UTCstephankn In this change you deleted a perfectly valid Thai scrip name in name:th. Why? Please restore it. Also don't change name:en to int_name. International does not always means english. Leave it to the map-maker to decide what language to use.
22017-02-28 09:42:39 UTCBalthus★MC Ok, you are right of course! Job done. Additionally I just found a wrong typo: instead of and corrected it…
12017-02-18 20:48:34 UTCstephankn why did you remove ref number 1001? is your stated source DDR Local Road Base map allowed to use in OSM?
22017-02-26 17:31:07 UTCBalthus★MC Because of survey I removed, not because of DRR LMP. I rode this road many times and I noticed, that the first road sign รย.1001 comes after the police station (just below the «See you again») when you come from south-east… After that I double-checked the official Thai source DRR LMP where m...
12017-02-18 08:17:13 UTCstephankn why the re-classification of ways? EG 29421587 does not justify to be reclassified from residential to unclassified. Already the geometry is a clear indication that this is wrong.
22017-02-28 10:03:23 UTCBalthus★MC You are are right! I changed it back to residential - can't see the logic either why I did it but I cannot remember why I did it…
12017-02-15 21:25:55 UTCstephankn STOP braking bilingual names! They had been correctly tagged as name:en.
Are you going to change it back?
22017-02-28 09:21:51 UTCBalthus★MC Yes, done. Correct?
12017-02-14 20:12:23 UTCstephankn please don't change valid name:en entries into int_name which is discouraged. the correct way for english names is in name:en. Please also explain a bit in detail why you upgraded it to a town (usually 10.000 inhabitants is the limit). According to wikipedia we talk about less than 6.000. https://en...
22017-02-28 10:15:56 UTCBalthus★MC I have now replaced int_name with name:th – I have been there recently and had the impression it is at least a Thesaban Tambon – but actually I am not qualified to make a decision wether it is a town or village… I have added a fixme=place
12017-02-11 15:18:56 UTCstephankn what did you try to do here? Especially way 472322394?
22017-02-11 15:26:08 UTCМикола Фендак я роблю зміни в карті у зв'язку із змінами на місцевості чи з уточненням і доповненням даних (бо я тут живу). Конкретно по 472322394 не скажу, бо не знаю, як це знайти.
32017-02-12 23:07:30 UTCstephankn You added many artificial polygons. That is certainly nothing on the ground. Why did you add this?
42017-02-13 20:00:45 UTCМикола Фендак You are in Facebook?
There will be more convenient to communicate.
My akaund -
12017-02-01 07:52:39 UTCstephankn that name "Coffee" hints a bit that it is a coffee shop (consume there), not a shop selling beverages for consumption at home.

If so. please change to amenity=cafe

Also check spelling of the name. It is more likely called Coffee, not all...
12017-02-01 07:22:00 UTCstephankn It is very uncommon (and in this case wrong) to create a relation for a single POI node. I believe this was not doen intentional and created a bugreport with iD:
POI tagging is cleaned up. Please pay special attention on future edits.
12017-01-01 17:53:46 UTCstephankn So your spring has the Spanish word for massage school in the tag for Thai script? Please stop nonsense edits.
12017-01-01 17:45:31 UTCstephankn name:th is ONLY for the name in Thai script. Please follow the tagging standard as outlined in the wiki.
12017-01-01 17:42:49 UTCstephankn Please do not add duplicates. Manee House is already listed here.
12017-01-01 17:40:11 UTCstephankn Please stop adding fake features. If you are not willing to learn how to map in OSM, please stop using
12016-09-27 18:42:35 UTCstephankn please follow the naming standards of the community. Do not mix Thai/English names in the name tag. Put Thai script in name and name:th, the English name in name:en. In case of brand names which use Latin script also in Thailand as their main description use that in the name tag.
12016-06-12 10:04:20 UTCstephankn Auch in Thailand haben Gebäude in der Regel rechte Winkel im Grundriss. Bitte beim Abmalen von den Luftbildern mehr darauf achten, bzw. die Hilfsmittel aus dem Editor verwenden.
12015-03-15 12:40:31 UTCstephankn you created self-intersections on way 331158501

maybe a multipolygon would be a better choice?
12015-03-15 11:36:26 UTCstephankn Potlatch created single-node way: 244696164
12015-03-15 10:35:33 UTCstephankn You have changed the name tag to be mixed Thai/English in this changeset. This is not the usual way we do in Thailand. Please check the wiki on bilingual name tags. name is supposed to be in Thai script. English names are in name:en for map makers to decide whether to include it in their individual ...
12015-01-31 03:20:51 UTCstephankn regarding mini hydro: I think the main reservoir is a bit upstream. It it a pump storage plant? so maybe the empty reservoir is the lower basin?
22015-01-31 06:00:52 UTCAlaskaDave I don't know. I merely moved an existing reservoir to where I thought it might be when more water is present. I think the reservoir you tagged is probably the actual location.

I think the original reservoir should be deleted. By the way, are you sure the name is spelled Meatian? I think it is Mae...
32015-01-31 08:34:12 UTCstephankn It is a wrong spelling on their sign. I put in both spellings and removed the riverbank.
42015-01-31 09:07:55 UTCAlaskaDave Sounds good.
12014-12-10 06:42:11 UTCstephankn A major change like this could have deserved a changeset description. Especially when it is done by a user who did not edit anything before.

Based on the physical road characteristics as visible from aerial imagery and the road also being part of the AH network the upgrade itself seems reasonable...
22014-12-10 08:10:57 UTCAlaskaDave I agree with the previous comment. I am aware that highway 101 is being upgraded and perhaps deserves the reclassification but there is more to it than that. Reclassifying the links, making sure bridges also get the changed ref number and classification is part of the process. Such "loose ends" have...
