12017-04-01 09:07:39 UTCSomeoneElse Hi Stu,
To my knowledge, none of these roads "have numbers" in any meaningful sense. They were already tagged with an "official_ref" (used by and only useful to the council). There are no signs, so C93 through Flaxton isn't anything that you can "refer" to.
Best Reg...
22017-04-01 09:58:14 UTCStu Mitch Hi Andy, I wondered about this. Occasionally you see these on signs but yes it is only occasional. They are references by local authorities, so if you had to report to a council it could be useful or if you wanted to query council work. Thanks for the comment though.

Regards, Stu
32017-04-01 10:48:19 UTCSomeoneElse There is (or used to be) at least one signed "C" road near Helmsley, but they're pretty rare.
It would certainly be possible (and not that difficult) to render "official_ref" on a map, but it doesn't make much sense to do so on a general purpose one. As an example, the "pr...
42018-10-21 16:57:29 UTCSomeoneElse Just for info, someone's since changed the C road refs here to "highway_authority_ref". If you want to see that you can look at https://map.atownsend.org.uk/maps/map/map.html#zoom=16&lat=54.05272&lon=-0.96757 , which shows them.
12018-10-12 22:20:29 UTCSomeoneElse Hello WJtW,
In this changeset you claim that you have used a source "Network statement Moldavia". This seems unlikely. What was the source that you actually used?
Best Regards,
Andy
22018-10-12 22:20:47 UTCSomeoneElse Hallo WJtW,
In deze wijzigingenset beweert u dat u een bron "Netwerkverklaring Moldavië" hebt gebruikt. Dit lijkt onwaarschijnlijk. Wat was de bron die u feitelijk gebruikte?
Vriendelijke groeten,

I assume that there is a separate footway next to the trunk road?

12018-04-06 16:08:16 UTCNakaner Hi mapland,

you uploaded files created with a third-party software in this and some other changesets. You claim that you created a GeoJSON file in QGIS. However, it looks to me that it was NOT a GeoJSON file. What is the real source of the data you uploaded.

In addition to these questions, I w...
22018-04-06 16:09:48 UTCNakaner Btw, many of the uploaded geometries don't match the buildings on the aerial imageries of Cape Town which are provided by the city and are available in JOSM's Imagery menu.
32018-04-07 08:16:37 UTCmapland Hi Michael,

You are so right! I made geojson's in QGIS off of January 2017 imagery. Thank you for all your advice, I am finding my way and feedback really helps. I will do my best to fix all the errors:
1. use house number tag
2. remove null values

42018-10-10 19:46:29 UTCSomeoneElse @mapland We really need to tidy up some of this stuff - there are 5000 "amenity=null" here?

52018-09-23 10:45:37 UTCSomeoneElse My recollection is that both Gib and Spain claim the water, and _both_ have at least some control of at least some of it (e.g. the marine park). I don't think that Spain can claim to have control of Gib harbour, so this might be somewhere that overlapping admin-level 2 relations makes sense.
The d...

32018-10-09 22:08:56 UTCjlcc78 Mas bien creo que las motivaciones políticas están en los que dibujaron esos límites para Gibraltar (probritanicos) y para Ceuta (promarroquies). Esos límites sobran en estos momentos.

12018-10-10 04:06:10 UTCWarin61 Hi,

For Way: 324467140 you have tagged landuse=scrub.
Scrub is not a 'landuse', in OSM the tag to use is 'natural=scrub'.
22018-10-10 06:13:49 UTCSomeoneElse Thanks
12018-09-04 16:20:25 UTCSK53 I'm afraid this is a huge mess. You have added a vast number of pedestrian highways in a stadium, which is incorrect and probably tagging for the renderer. These are presumably banks of seating. I doubt that you got this information from anywhere other than the website of the stadium or some other c...
22018-09-04 17:07:33 UTCbhousel FWIW, I think what stadiaarcadia did here is pretty great and I have no issue with it. I agree it would be nice to say more about it's source. But numbered seating sections just as public as things like numbered parking lots or numbered train platforms? e.g. even if they take this information fro...
32018-09-04 17:36:59 UTCstadiaarcadia Hi, the first row was already included. It was a pedestrian way already, probably because you can walk over the stairs at the lines.

Only a small amount of my edits still contain errors, I will fix ...
52018-09-04 18:10:20 UTCSK53 I have no problem with micromapping details of stadia, for instance adding numbered areas of seating/rows etc, but they are not routable pedestrian areas.

72018-09-04 19:13:19 UTCSK53 I'm not sure of the best way to map gangways & stairs in the stadium. Probably use highway=footway (not pedestrian) and highway=steps. If these are a large area use area:highway=footway or steps in conjunction with a routeable way (steps in particular may be wide with many handrails to provide ...
82018-10-08 07:08:55 UTCstadiaarcadia I've fixed stadium areas at the MetLife Stadium, but you've made those invisible now. It took me a lot of effort to fix those, I saw that same style at numerous other stadiums. Can you please make those squares/areas visible again?
92018-10-08 15:48:19 UTCSomeoneElse @stadiaarcadia - above you ask "Can you please make those squares/areas visible again?" The answer is yes, but you're going to need to find a custom renderer to show the data. There are 4 map styles visible on osm.org. There's the "standard" one (which I presume that you're ta...

12018-10-08 18:07:09 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
Just for info a new mapper (with doodles as a first edit) drew this "river". Looking at the imagery, it appears to be half-way up a cliff face. Did you perhaps not check it when you changed the tags?
Best Regards,
Andy
22018-10-08 18:13:43 UTCrivermont I found this changeset after looking the user's history after seeing a discussion in OSMUS Slack about the previous changeset. The way seemed in line with a depression from aerial imagery so I assumed they added valid info. It seems the river has been removed now though.
32018-10-08 18:35:03 UTCSomeoneElse Yes - I removed it because, based on looking at the imagery it was half-way up a slope (which you can also see by looking at the contours on the cycle map - https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=17/10.96130/-12.63470&layers=C ).

22018-10-06 09:21:42 UTCLeo Slager Dear Andy,
Those changesets were reverted on request of the original mapper. You are right that now the name KPN Amersfoort is missing.
The name KPN Amersfoort now has been added to the address-node, as usual in the Netherlands.
Kind Regards,
Leo
32018-10-07 09:15:14 UTCSomeoneElse Thanks - I see the name on 115 https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/2683429122 but not on the nodes actually in this building, 117 and 119?
42018-10-07 11:11:12 UTCLeo Slager That is correct. The Original mapper did not provide any information for these addresses and they are not in the same building as KPN.
12018-09-30 19:44:53 UTCndm Will be reverted - brand:wikipedia is not in the wiki.openstreetmap.org. Links in osmand, etc. will fail.
22018-10-01 17:08:08 UTCMateusz Konieczny Hopefully revert rate will be not higher than with other tagging for renderer.

Good point about OSM website, I added "autolinking brand:wikipedia and other *:wikipedia tags on OSM website" to my (already way too long) TODO list.
32018-10-01 22:06:42 UTCndm It breaks all existing tools -- will ask DWG to take a look -- if it just added something like wikipedia:link = brand, then fine it's just "noise", those that care read it, those that don't can continue as usual.
42018-10-02 06:59:36 UTCSomeoneElse I'd have thought that brand:wikipedia=en:IKEA was the correct tagging here, as that wikipedia entry isn't for this individual store but for the whole chain? The website (which points at the store locator page for this store) is of course OK.
52018-10-02 09:50:59 UTCMateusz Konieczny Note that this type of linking is not new - see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:wikipedia#Secondary_Wikipedia_links

62018-10-02 09:56:30 UTCMateusz Konieczny "It breaks all existing tools" - incorrect tagging to satisfy some tools is not accepted in OSM - see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tagging_for_the_renderer

Note also that false wikipedia/wikidata links break tools that expect that wikipedia tag to be used correctly.
72018-10-02 18:37:38 UTCndm Still not sure what Żabka has to do with IKEA -- but good to see that there is a hint about "brand:wikipedia" in the wiki now :-)

Perhaps linking to the discussion on the imports list would be better in terms of a justification -- and more informative.
82018-10-02 19:16:22 UTCMateusz Konieczny "now" - it is there since a quite long time.

"linking to the discussion on the imports list" - given that it is not an import (or even an automatic edit) I am unfortunately unable to provide such link.
92018-10-02 20:35:36 UTCndm Maybe this would be good to add:

https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/talk/2017-September/thread.html#78902

102018-10-03 10:25:18 UTCMateusz Konieczny Is there anything useful in that discussion? I try to ignore "Yuri Astrakhan vs mailing list" threads.
12018-09-30 15:06:54 UTCSomeoneElse Same problem as previous changeset. While some of these are valid (Quy) some are not (Woolpit - I was there only a couple of weeks ago and there's no junction name signage).

22018-07-28 09:29:10 UTCSomeoneElse Last time I was there (Easter?) it wasn't signed Brampton Hut on-road either, though it's commonly referred to as that. With all the works nearby that might have changed though.

22018-08-18 00:06:26 UTCdhx1 In that case I extended an existing line with "fixme" tags, or joined together multiple line segments where one had a "fixme" tag. I don't add voltages, operators, etc unless I can provide a source/reference for that information.
32018-09-04 20:47:29 UTCTheSolarGuy Hi dhx1,

please let me confirm, that you are doing good work. The tags criticized by me were not introduced by you, so I'm very sorry for my rant. I'm writing you, because it seems that I'm in company with very bad actor (see above).

Kind regards

12018-09-06 21:05:09 UTCSomeoneElse Hi,
Can you explain what "factually not a town" means here? What gets mapped as cities / towns / villages can be contentious (and the comments on https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:place are all relative - there's no "this is a town, this is a village").
I've mentioned th...
12018-09-06 08:19:00 UTCSomeoneElse One thing that might be missing is "the bit where people sit or stand at north and south without a roof". That's tricky, because there isn't a 100% accepted way of tagging those in OSM. There's "leisure=bleachers", as described at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:leisure...
22018-09-06 08:43:50 UTCstadiaarcadia Thank you very much for the information SomeoneElse. By the way, I've found a stadium which is added, but doesn't show up. Other buildings in the area also don't show up. Do you know what is wrong with it? This is the one: https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=18/40.67839/122.11570&layers=N

12018-09-02 09:38:15 UTCNunoCaldeira please be careful with your edits, you destroyed valuable information. you shouldn't delete elements like the pitch, gates. you added the ceiling as building structure destroying the 3D elements, which is incorrect. changeset will be reverted

92018-09-03 17:54:16 UTCNunoCaldeira this users needs to be ban. in 30 hours he done 156 changesets. if you compare the edits, its a mess, hes deleting multipolygon relations into simple "building=stadium" and then addin a pitch (which becomes hidden due to the lack of building inner). All his edits need to be reverted asap.
102018-09-03 18:02:06 UTCstadiaarcadia seriously?? You don't have to ban me, please explain to me what I've done wrong with this building=stadium. Please explain this to me, then I'll fix all my erros.
112018-09-03 18:03:47 UTCstadiaarcadia Not all my edits have to be reverted. I did thousands of edits in the last months, and only around 30 have been reverted. I didn't get complaints about those others. Please tell me how I can fix my errors, and I'll fix every one of those.
122018-09-03 18:06:27 UTCstadiaarcadia I've added hundreds of stadiums which were completely missing, I've added thousands of missing houses. They don't have to be removed. Just give me a little time and I'll fix all my errors.
132018-09-03 18:06:30 UTCNunoCaldeira as i mentioned, ONE THIRD of you edits are deletions. You shouldn't delete elements unless they dont exist any more, which im sure 95% of the ones you deleted still exist. Also, what's the database you are using to add these?
142018-09-03 18:08:19 UTCstadiaarcadia By the way, I only have to check around 40 stadiums for errors, like completely missing / missing names etc.
152018-09-03 18:09:07 UTCNunoCaldeira again, what's the source or database for these?
162018-09-03 18:10:16 UTCstadiaarcadia I don't delete those elements anymore, I didn't know that before. I did replace those deleted elements with other elements, please take a good look at those edits and you'll see.
172018-09-03 18:11:47 UTCstadiaarcadia I am a groundhopper, I've visited hundreds of stadiums. I also used Bing if the view is right.
182018-09-03 18:11:51 UTCNunoCaldeira really? you deleted items on this changeset, which was done yesterday. some of which were added years ago.
192018-09-03 18:13:52 UTCNunoCaldeira in the last 30 hours you deleted 500 elements in the map. 500!!!
202018-09-03 18:14:09 UTCstadiaarcadia SomeOne Else: That's okay, I will do that. Freebeer: Thank you very much for your usefull hints!
212018-09-03 18:15:58 UTCNunoCaldeira and when you make an edit dont use "stadium update". write details of what you did? change name, geometry, added entry, and so on. detailed information, not generic
222018-09-03 18:16:48 UTCstadiaarcadia I deleted 500 elements? I only changed the shape of elements if the shape could be better. I didn't delete those elements.
232018-09-03 18:24:56 UTCstadiaarcadia Some stadiums were not drawn, imcompletely drawn, drawn before renovation works took place, drawn poor, had old stadium names (a lot of stadiums often change names with new sponsors). I didn't delete those 500 elements, please take a good look at my edits.
242018-09-03 18:27:55 UTCstadiaarcadia I changed the shape of those 500 elements, I didn't delete those.
252018-09-03 18:28:52 UTCstadiaarcadia Most of those were minor edits, like a part of the stand / building which was missing.
262018-09-03 18:31:37 UTCNunoCaldeira as i said, in the last 30h you deleted >500 elements and modified 1179 elements. editing is deletions and modifications. deletion is deleting the elements, and you have done that number of deletions in the last 30h indeed.
272018-09-03 18:38:35 UTCAlecs01 I agree with Nuno, stadiaarcadia I appreciate your passion for stadiums, but you should stop your edits (already told you twice at least) until you just don't understand what you're doing. You are doing more damage than anything else, by far.
282018-09-03 18:43:57 UTCstadiaarcadia Okay I will stop now until I fully understand all my errors. I will fix everything, just give me a little time for that.
292018-09-03 18:52:38 UTCstadiaarcadia The last 30 hours... You told me yesterday that I shouldn't delete that many objects, and after that (which means today) I didn't. I did replace those deleted objects with almost the same object in most cases. If it had valuable information, I took over the information or I didn't delete it.
302018-09-03 18:57:33 UTCNunoCaldeira you shouldn't delete elements at all, unless they cease existence. you must edit them. and again, YES you did delete 500 elements in the last 30 hours. replacing means you deleted them, you SHOULD NOT DELETE, edit the existing ones.
312018-09-03 19:11:28 UTCstadiaarcadia I don’t do that anymore. I will stop editing now, I won’t change any stadiums anymore. I only have to check around 30 stadiums for ‘errors’ (missing stands, missing stadium names etc, can I ask someone else to edit these 30(?) stadiums when they contain errors or are incomple...
322018-09-03 19:14:01 UTCNunoCaldeira yes they are lost. thats why its CRUCIAL not to delete elements. Please read this https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Good_practice#Keep_the_history

Thats why you should not delete. and yes they are lost since you deleted then ad redone them, when you should have just edit them.
332018-09-03 22:00:03 UTCstadiaarcadia I won’t delete anything anymore. I also understand the stadium tagging now. I will stop editing, but I will fix my errors, I’m going to check and fix my edits (please give me time for this) if they include errors. I’ve added thouaands of missing houses and hundreds of stadiums whic...
342018-09-03 22:03:38 UTCstadiaarcadia If I find a stadium with missing stands, a missing or wrong stadium name or something like that, is there someone I can mail who can do the stadium edits?
352018-09-04 06:36:42 UTCstadiaarcadia Also please keep in mind that only a small amount of my edits contained deleted objects (almost all of those have already been reverted).

362018-09-04 06:57:28 UTCstadiaarcadia By the way NunoCaldeira, can you please explain "adding a pitch (which becomes hidden due to the lack of building inner)"?

392018-09-04 07:51:58 UTCNunoCaldeira No problem, if you have more doubts let me know. Most of the information is on wiki. Regarding the multipolygon relation, check a few examples on the map and understand how it works before starting editing. There's also a couple of video tutorials on YouTube.
402018-09-04 08:03:04 UTCstadiaarcadia Thanks again Nuno, I'm going to watch those tutorials. I have a doubt about this one, can you please check if I added "alt_name" the right way at this stadium: https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/62244989
412018-09-04 08:04:55 UTCstadiaarcadia Can you please also check if my last edit at Estadio Campeón del Siglo in Montevideo is fine now? I've changed leisure tag into stadium tag and stadium tag into building tag. Is it good this way?
422018-09-04 08:39:00 UTCstadiaarcadia Do you have some useful YouTube tutorials? I've found some, but not all of those are useful for me.

12018-09-03 12:47:27 UTCSomeoneElse Your name change to https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/554256656/history here looks like another name that you have made up. What was wrong with the previous name? What evidence do you have that it was wrong and your new name is correct?
22018-09-03 18:34:29 UTCstadiaarcadia I didn't made this name up. Here you can see that "Mend-A-Hose Jungle" really is the official stadium name: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/rugbyleague/article-2405382/Rugby-League-Castleford-Tigers-rename-stadium-Mend-A-Hose-Jungle.html
32018-09-03 19:15:19 UTCSomeoneElse Yes, it really is called The "Mend-A-Hose Jungle" but it's not called The "Mend-A-Hose Jungle (Wheldon Road)" which is what you have called it.

Other mappers may not understand the reasons behind your change (especially in contentious border areas) - changeset comments help everyone to understand.
12018-09-03 12:49:02 UTCSomeoneElse What's the source of your change here? Have you visited it?
22018-09-03 18:32:43 UTCstadiaarcadia Yes, this is one of the hundreds of stadiums I visited.
12018-09-03 12:41:07 UTCSomeoneElse Please using meaningful changeset comments. Using "Stadium improvements." each time is extremely unhelpful to other mappers.
22018-09-03 12:43:11 UTCSomeoneElse I don't believe that Stoke's stadium is called "bet365 Stadium (Britannia Stadium)". It's called either one or the other - I'd suggest using a name of the current name and another name (loc_name, alt_name or old_name as appropriate) for the other one.
32018-09-03 17:15:30 UTCstadiaarcadia Allright, I’ll add more detailed comments. I think “bet365 Stadium” is the best name, because it’s the official name. “Britannia Stadium” can be alt_name, is that okay?
42018-09-04 16:32:07 UTCSK53 I'd stick with the more familiar name "Britannia Stadium", although it's complicated because that too was a sponsorship name, but the Britannia name lasted for nearly 20 years, whereas the bet365 may be more fleeting. For older stadia not built with a sponsor with naming rights, the old na...

72018-08-20 19:27:55 UTCtms13 Thanks, SomeoneElse. It sounds like this whole thing is about *rendering*? If there's a move to not rendering refs, then isn't the right thing to change your renderer, rather than corrupting the whole database to fit the rendering? That's totally against the "don't tag for the renderer"...
82018-08-20 19:41:36 UTCDaveF The expression is 'don't tag *incorrectly* to suit the renderer'. All tags are to the benefit of them otherwise it would be just black lines & dots.

22018-07-28 09:23:42 UTCSomeoneElse These refs aren't signed; I'll revert.
12018-07-23 00:13:46 UTCc2r Looks like this user has been plagerising AA Maps here.
22018-07-23 07:16:04 UTCGreyseal18 I email the AA and they said that was correct from Highways England so I can’t argue with them really after saying that
32018-07-28 08:52:56 UTCSomeoneElse Just to be clear - you can't use AA maps as a source (even if you've asked them).
If you've asked them to release the data under an OSM-compatible licence and they've done so, then that would be a different story.
42018-10-02 06:03:51 UTCGerdP Does anybody know the current status of this way: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/230135072 ?
52018-10-02 06:24:26 UTCc2r Unless anyone has free evidence or has seen signs indicating that the length of the road north of Scotch Corner is the A6055,it needs to be reverted, as it could quite easily be a copyright trap by the AA. South of here I believe it is.
12018-07-22 23:55:25 UTCc2r Ah yes, the metropolis of Southend. When was it granted City status? Do tell.
22018-07-23 07:12:43 UTCGreyseal18 Then why is Ely a city then because it is so small and nothing really happens there
32018-07-23 23:13:42 UTCc2r Because it has a giant cathedral... Southend is a town and unitary authority, but isn't a city.
42018-07-28 08:49:14 UTCSomeoneElse There's definitely a discussion to be had in the UK about "which are cities and which aren't" (despite what the OSM wiki says, different OSM communities worldwide have different ideas of what a city should be). talk-gb is the best place to discuss this stuff - having everyone set "th...
12018-07-23 08:12:04 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
I'm pretty sure that this isn't signed as the A46(M), at least not from the south, and I drive past here pretty regularly. What makes you think that it is?
Best Regards,
Andy
22018-07-23 08:14:24 UTCGreyseal18 Pathetic Motorways and SABRE Wiki shows it as a unsigned motorway and if your going to revert this edit then I’m changing the A14(M) from the A1(M) J14 to the A14 Spur to the A1(M) because that is what it says on the signs
32018-07-23 19:20:39 UTCndm If all your edits are based on Pathetic Motorways (All media on this website is © Pathetic Motorways, except where noted that they are copyright of a contributor.

42018-07-24 14:17:33 UTCtrigpoint Adding some local knowledge here, this is not signed as A46(M), mpaaing it as such is misleading and this change should be reverted as soon as possible.
Phil
52018-07-24 14:19:38 UTCGreyseal18 Ok I’ll also rename the A14(M) from the A1(M) to the A14 Spur to the A1(M) (as signposted)

12018-07-24 15:38:41 UTCMike Baggaley Hi, in this change you seem to have changed a number of ways to have the ref M6 Toll or M6 Toll;M42 and set toll=yes when they are not within the region of charge for their use. I suggest that the name M6 Toll should only be used for ways where it is necessary to pay. M42, as previously set for the ...
22018-07-25 16:43:30 UTCtrigpoint I recently surveyed the signs on this section and can confirm that the edit made by Brian was correct and matched my survey of the signs. The correct OSM mapping is always what we see on the ground.
Please revert these changes.
Cheers Phil
32018-07-28 08:33:36 UTCSomeoneElse Yes - pretty sure https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/142234723/history isn't toll=yes since it's the southbound link from the M42 isn't it? Also I've always thought of https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/29180118/history as being part of the M42 (even though it probably has lanes signed as M6 Toll). ...
42018-07-28 08:42:47 UTCSomeoneElse As discussed above I've reverted this in https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/61137468 . It's probably worth raising any "interesting questions" about road ref values on talk-gb rather than just changing them as lots of people are familiar with this area.

12018-07-17 13:25:22 UTCwillebrord Could you please explain? The summit cross is definitley there and a cross check in other guides/maps confirmed the name (see e.g. "Wien wandert" guide, Rittberger+Knapp 2015, http://www.freytagberndt.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/9783902999023_Innenansicht_01.pdf , S.14)

32018-07-18 11:05:44 UTCwillebrord Ah, I see what I got involved in here. ;)

52018-07-19 09:55:13 UTCwillebrord I beg to differ. The situation here is completely different: This is _not_ a "fictional" place.

72018-07-20 14:12:10 UTCwillebrord No, I do not agree that "this started as a fake"! This peak did not have any name and following the commonly accepted procedure someone successfully gave it a name and spread the name. That's it.

22018-02-18 10:13:51 UTCGreyseal18 Well if you go onto view source you can see it’s a current motorway and if you go onto a website called Pathetic Motorways it also uses the A92(M)
32018-07-22 21:58:15 UTCSomeoneElse As discussed on https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/56451569 the Sabre wiki isn't an appropriate source for OSM.
42018-07-22 22:03:46 UTCGreyseal18 Yes it is as I use it and all the information is true and if there was false info on the website your account will get banned. Also most of the info is on Transport for Scotland and Highways England.
It is the information on OMS that can be false. This is not 1 of them it is true.
52018-07-22 22:04:29 UTCGreyseal18 Also if you think it’s false then I’m removing the A14(M) from the A1(M) J14 to the A14 Spur
62018-07-22 22:56:30 UTCSomeoneElse @Greyseal18 To be clear, just because a source is "likely to be correct" does not mean that we will be able to use it in OpenStreetMap. It has to be licensed appropriately so that it's OK for OSM to use it and also for downstream data consumers to use it as well. This applies to data from...
72018-07-23 19:05:45 UTCGinaroZ @Greyseal18 - The Sabre page I linked to literally says the A92(M) is a possible number, and the existence of the number is disputed. So probably best to leave the ref= blank!

However the other issue is why it was changed to a motorway, as it seems like a motorway_link to me?

12018-06-09 23:53:29 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
You've made http://osm.mapki.com/history/relation.php?id=7233208 a "leisure=park" again. Are you sure about this? Other mappers seem quite clear that it isn't.
Best Regards,

12018-06-08 08:41:24 UTCSomeoneElse If you don't reply to the questions that people have asked you (see http://resultmaps.neis-one.org/osm-discussion-comments?uid=1193932 ) we're going to have to remove some or all of these changes. https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/591636288 looks pretty unlikely, for example.
12018-05-31 09:52:26 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
You've changed the DE and EN names here from versions of the Ossetian names to versions of the Georgian names. Leaving aside the politics, what's the most spoken language on the ground here? Given the location I'd have expected Ossetian rather than Georgian?
Best Regards,
Andy
22018-06-04 20:49:30 UTCHans Wieser What means Ossetian version of German name or Ossetian version of English name? Ossetians are free to call places in Ossetian language but it's a nonsense that other languages also have to call them in Ossetian.
DE and EN names show how German or English speakers could call a place not how locals ...
32018-06-04 23:32:17 UTCSomeoneElse Not "Ossetian version of German name" but "German version of Ossetian name" (as opposed to "German version of Georgian name").

42018-06-06 09:51:42 UTCHans Wieser So what you say (German version of Ossetian name) is wrong very wrong, if you check old Soviet topographic maps you will see that those names are international.

32018-05-10 10:31:50 UTCrebeccadavey Hi,
I believe that the node order for one of the parallel one-way sections of Farringdon Road near Kings Cross is now incorrect. The more southerly of the two branches (way 547168300) has a one-way direction heading northwest, whereas the node order now reflects a one-way direction going southeast....
42018-05-21 13:10:46 UTCerantr1 Hi Rebecca,
I looked at that way ID, but as far as I can see the node order goes NW, exactly like the one-way direction.
Unless I'm missing something here.
Thanks,
Eran.
52018-05-21 13:25:13 UTCrebeccadavey Hi Eran,
This was my mistake, I apologise! I thought the data I was using was up-to-date, but it wasn't and didn't include your change/fix.

12018-05-16 12:13:50 UTClefty74 This deletion removed a large part of the north boundary of the River Thames relation. The way should be restored and the nonexistent footpath removed by changing tags where needed.
I'd prefer to leave this to the @Greg73E as he has local knowledge.
22018-05-16 13:29:26 UTCGreg73E I think I'm in over my head here. Can the way be undeleted? I used the OSM web site editor.

I received an update about construction work in this part of the street and thought it would be a good idea to split in order to adapt it for the upcoming change. In any case, I can revert it if you think it's necessary.
32018-05-06 09:24:54 UTCSomeoneElse That doesn't explain the turn restriction https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/3086416/history which was at https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1312264600 ?

Regarding the turn restriction - I had to refresh my memory to realize why I removed it. The restriction (only_straight_on) was defined from way 230192075 to way 183555228. I was mistaken to think that it is defined from 183555228 to 230191864, which would have created a non-justified dead...

62018-05-05 08:34:19 UTCFreedSky
My modification of the boundary is a feeling that some places are inconsistent with actual control. For example, some ravines are clearly in one of the countries and there are roads leading to them. If you don't think this is acceptable, you can discuss or return my editor.
72018-05-05 08:35:33 UTCFreedSky I also understand the specific conditions of the disputed areas between the two countries. Please rest assured that I will not arbitrarily modify the actual control boundary. As a user editing in the South China Sea, I know how tortured the boundary is.
82018-05-05 08:39:17 UTCSomeoneElse Thanks for the detailed explanation. Sometimes it might make sense to add something like that to your own changesets (because the changeset comment is limited to 256 characters) to explain the reasoning behind it.
92018-05-10 03:15:03 UTCFreedSky I also know that you are worried that, in fact, you can find that my series of boundary editors basically does not involve the disputed areas. It is just some of the borders identified by the existing two countries. The data used before OSM may be a bit error.
12018-05-04 10:51:51 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,

32018-04-28 17:10:59 UTCSomeoneElse Thanks - can you show where? These mappers seem to have been working in teams, so there might be a few places. Obviously I'll check myself, but if you let me know where you're seeing it it'll save time.
42018-04-28 17:26:39 UTCcarciofo Hi, I was mapping in north Broward County, FL, and noticed the nodes. It seems both nodes and ways were originally created in the same changeset as both are/were v1.

12018-03-30 20:53:19 UTCchillly Errrr, surely the website is copyright. DO you have permission to use this in OSM?

We take copyright VERY seriously
22018-03-30 23:14:37 UTCEgrettaGarzetta I understand that, a little better today than yesterday; but does that mean the names of the hostels can't be used without permission or does it mean they can't be used because they're copyright?
32018-03-31 11:30:25 UTCSomeoneElse @EgrettaGarzetta OSM would need data released under an appropriate licence in order to be able to use it.

22018-04-23 08:15:53 UTCMateusz Konieczny Do you think that we should wait or delete ways like https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/577813798#map=18/33.09372/-117.21442 ? Given id=502903 I suspect that it is poorly done import of unclear data from unknown source (maybe copyrighted on top of that).

72018-04-23 19:42:17 UTCSomeoneElse I've reverted the two "unconnected node" changesets in https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/58348196 . Another mapper (possibly "on the same team") had already deleted some of the extraneaous stuff in https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/58342443 .

22018-04-21 17:50:31 UTCMarc Konjuhi I thought I made a compromise with somebpody about this, but we made it different so I made a mistake there. I will reset the serb municipalities to SR / AL.

122018-04-13 11:27:54 UTCSomeoneElse If you click the "Edit" button above ^^ you'll get iD 2.7.1. What website are you looking at before you go into the iD editor?
132018-04-14 21:54:10 UTCcounter_striker Actually, I am not seeing any iD. It is simply navigating into the edit window. All I see is "Zoom in to edit"

PS: I have always been logged in. I hope that's not an issue.
142018-04-14 22:31:02 UTCSomeoneElse "iD" is the name of the editor. Move the mouse to the bottom right hand corner of the window of the latest version and it says "What's new in iD 2.7.1".

152018-04-16 00:54:05 UTCcounter_striker Okay. I understood. I am seeing iD 2.7.1 and its taking me to another page(https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD) when clicked.
162018-04-16 08:57:35 UTCSomeoneElse Thanks.
That doesn't explain why all your changesets show "iD 2.4.1" though. Which website are you using that starts iD 2.4.1 for you?
172018-04-16 10:25:36 UTCcounter_striker I am using Open Street Map website(https://www.openstreetmap.org/edit?changeset=57960469#map=19/55.95623/-3.18722)

182018-04-16 10:28:46 UTCSomeoneElse > I am using Open Street Map website
Unfortunately, I don't believe that you are.
Either you're using some sort of captive portal that points www.openstreetmap.org somewhere else, or you're not being entirely honest with us here.
192018-04-16 10:51:19 UTCcounter_striker Well, I would have shared my screen if there was an option to. Tell me if something is going wrong from my end. And also suggest me to have my iD as 2.7.1. Thanks.
202018-04-16 11:09:17 UTCSomeoneElse Yes - posting a screenshot at an image sharing site might help.
In the meantime though, can't you just tell us who is asking you to make these edits? We'd like to help them understand a bit more about OSM, but can't do that if we don't know who they are.
212018-04-17 01:03:09 UTCcounter_striker I have tried to see the iD. It's now 2.8.0. Let me remind you that, I am performing these edits on my own based on OSM wiki pages. I am jobless, trying to learn and contribute.

Is there any reason why you deleted https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/449139305/history here? Please note that there has been a lot of redevelopment here and the Bing aerial imagery is very out of date.
Why did you choose to edit this road in Hucknall? Did someone give you a li...
22018-04-13 00:33:13 UTCpattamatta Hi Andy,

I remember editing this road and I am pretty sure I actually wanted to connect Titchfield Street and Torkard Way together. However I don't remember deleting any segment. My intention was to make a connection between the two roads which are now connected with a small footpath segment. If ...
32018-04-13 01:46:20 UTCSomeoneElse The point is that they actually don't connect - the Bing imagery is wrong. The Esri imagery is more up to date, but to do it properly you would need to actually go there.

Are you sure about the change to https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/83871869/history here? I can understand why you're confused that a road joins a bridleway, but how do you know that this is the road that is wrong, not the other one?
Best Regards,

22018-04-12 21:08:14 UTCrobbieonsea A cursory look at other sources such as Bing, OS_OpenData_Streetview & NLS OS:1:25K sources suggest this is a track/service road to an isolated place in the middle of the Welsh hillsides.

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

12018-04-01 18:45:21 UTCSomeoneElse Who's "we"?

OSM's position on names is covered in the wiki here - https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Names#Name_is_the_name_only .
22018-04-01 19:09:50 UTCjan_olieslagers Thank you for chiming in, critically yet politely.
I must admit that the "we" is a bit of "pluralis majestatis" - it really is my own personal opinion. Yet it is an opinion grown over the years, and over ample discussion.

1) aerodromes should really not be nameless. There hav...
32018-04-01 19:22:02 UTCJKHougaard There already is an access=private tag. It is up to the data user to interpret and display the appropriate tags so that the end user (the pilot in your example) has the correct information.
Frankly I do not agree with your story of a qualified pilot finding a random airstrip in OSM and deciding to ...
42018-04-01 19:28:14 UTCjan_olieslagers @JKHougaard: you are entirely right, we cannot be considered responsible for the interpretation of the data we present. Still, is that a sufficient reason to NOT give this particular field a "name=" tag? There are hundres of little airfields around Europe that are not in any official sourc...
52018-04-01 19:42:34 UTCHjart My opinion is: Mappers inventing names is BAD. Airfields and other objects in OSM should be tagged with verifiable official names only. Anything else will eventually lead to confusion.
Maps used by aviators should display the content of access tags.
62018-04-01 19:48:07 UTCjan_olieslagers @hjart: first of all my apologies for misspelling your id higher up. That said: surely an official name is to be preferred, but if there is none than it is better to do our best than to offer nothing at all. What name is given can be discussed, and edited, asnd changed, and changed again, but no nam...
72018-04-01 19:56:58 UTCHjart I also think it's now time to remove "invented name" from other airstrips. I think you'll have to come up with better cope with nameless airstrips.
No name is not bad and certainly not "the worst there can be".
Not respecting access=private tags etc is worse.
82018-04-01 20:07:25 UTCjan_olieslagers There you are mixing up two points. On the one hand I am glad to agree that tags like "private=*" are very important, and should be respected. On the other hand I insist we cannot be TOO clear; so we should use all means available, and the "name=" is one and a very prominent one....
92018-04-01 20:08:18 UTCjan_olieslagers And what do you mean with "better cope with nameless airstrips"?
102018-04-01 20:11:23 UTCHjart I meant "you'll have to find better ways to cope with nameless airstrips". Inventing names for them is not good and will not prevent cases like the one you gave above.
112018-04-01 20:18:20 UTCHjart I personally think a lot of people will disagree with adding "private" or "public", whatever to names of all aerodromes just to "clear" the way you describe.
122018-04-01 20:19:12 UTCjan_olieslagers Sorry, I really cannot agree. Are you really meaning to say that "name=" should only be tagged if an official source is given? If so, how do you define "official"? For an extreme example, what was the official source for the "name=" in node 2318851468 ? Are you really g...
132018-04-01 20:29:36 UTCHjart Yes, I think that "name=" should be tagged only if the airstrip has an actual official name. I researched this airstrip and found that it's private and doesn't actually have an official name. I think inventing one is wrong.
The node you mention can be verified by going to http://vscs.dk/b...
142018-04-01 20:38:05 UTCjan_olieslagers Again sorry, but you do nothing to convince me. There is nothing official about the source you mention. That this name has been invented by someone else does not make a difference, it is not an official name so it is an invented name - if I follow your reasoning.

But you may find me an official s...
152018-04-01 20:43:22 UTCjan_olieslagers And may I also refer to the pointer by @SomeoneElse at the very beginning of this discussion: I could find nothing there to imply that only "official" names can be used. But the article seems to care little about aerodromes.
162018-04-01 20:46:53 UTCHjart Nothing is being "hushed up" here. You invented this name even though you are not the owner or in any anyway affiliated with this particular airstrip, right? Just like you invented names for a gazillion other airstrips around the map?
Please note that another mapper (apparently with more ...
172018-04-01 20:50:34 UTCjan_olieslagers What has "being the owner" to do here? Has only the owner the right to add a "name=*" tag?

182018-04-01 20:51:46 UTCHjart @jan the link given by SomeoneElse says "If something really doesn't have a name, don't add a name to OpenStreetMap"
This airstrip doesn't actually have a name, so don't add one.
192018-04-01 20:57:05 UTCjan_olieslagers You are only saying it does not have an "official" name. Again, a dog is a dog and a train is a train and an Airstrip in Stragelse is an Airstrip in Stragelse. Allow me to insist: what is so very wrong about giving this one airstrip a name, even if it is not offical? Your insistence - agai...
202018-04-01 20:58:27 UTCHjart Another mapper removed the name you invented for this airstrip (because of lack of verifiability) and I've put the noname=yes tag back. Please respect it
212018-04-01 20:58:42 UTCjan_olieslagers (apologies for the typo - s/Stragelse/Slagelse/g)
222018-04-01 20:59:39 UTCjan_olieslagers Sorry, I won't - but I will not enter a reversal war either.
232018-04-01 21:03:48 UTCSomeoneElse @jan_olieslagers Any name for an object must be verifiable by other mappers - see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Verifiability for details. Something that you made up isn't a name, it's just a description.
242018-04-01 21:11:29 UTCjan_olieslagers Thanks again, @SomeoneElse. Can it be verified that an apple is an apple? Can it be verified that an Airstrip in Slagelse is an Airstrip in Slagelse? May an apple be given the name "apple" May ... ??

272018-04-07 19:43:46 UTCjan_olieslagers Thanks, @JJIglesias. I have resigned to the existence of aerodromes with no name, though it feels to me like "a pub with no beer" :) And I certainly agree that we are NOT producing the AIP or any other official kind of data. However I cannot agree with you that all aerodromes (in the broad...
12018-03-29 20:54:55 UTCndm OpenStreetmap is about what is actually present -- you shouldn't change names that are from on-the-ground surveys.

Plus, you would have to have a licence from YHA to use their copyrighted material on OpenStreetmap.
22018-03-29 21:02:02 UTCndm I suggest you discuss it on the talk-gb mailing list before making further YHA-related edits.
32018-03-31 10:46:37 UTCndrw6 Personally I think ndm's interpretation of project quality standards and copyright laws is overly strict and should not be treated as an official opinion of the osm community. (neither should be mine)

32018-03-15 20:01:50 UTCSomeoneElse Can you point to a series of previous examples where it happened with iD? I keep an occasional eye on edits here via whodidit, and I don't remember a systematic problem with iD. The biggest current source of problems are probably people testing osmapi like https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/5...
42018-03-15 21:36:52 UTCNop - Start iD without coordinates
- press "zoom in to edit" and you're there

(I've undeleted the missing Pirata buoy node BTW)
12018-03-15 20:08:00 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
Please don't add test data to the live OpenStreetMap Server. If you want a test server, perhaps http://api06.dev.openstreetmap.org/ would work for you?
Best Regards,
Andy
12017-09-06 18:00:37 UTCFahRadler thats no roundabout!!!
-> a kind of turning loop
22017-09-06 18:52:55 UTCVerdy_p where, I've looked at all of them individually, may be there's some invisible signs that could say the opposite
32017-09-06 18:53:35 UTCVerdy_p Exceptions to this is extremely rare in France.
42017-09-09 09:30:37 UTCFahRadler i´ve been there, that a turning loop
52017-09-09 10:04:30 UTCVerdy_p such comment in not useful if you don't specify "where"
62018-03-15 00:12:59 UTCSomeoneElse @Verdy_p is this another mechanical edit? Maybe if your change was in a smaller geographical area and not a whole country you wouldn't have to ask "where" when someone asks about the validity of an object in it.
12018-03-11 14:36:05 UTCpitscheplatsch Hi Carlos de Gouveia, welcome to OSM.

Please don't add test data to the live OpenStreetMap Server.
If you want a test server, perhaps http://api06.dev.openstreetmap.org/ would work for you?

Furthermore, can you revert your changes?
Thanks.
22018-03-13 17:51:18 UTCCarlos de Gouveia I'm sorry, didn't realise what I did. I will delete the data if I can find it. If you have access to it (before I get to find it) please would you revert it? I will use the test server as you suggested. Apologies.
32018-03-13 18:27:52 UTCCarlos de Gouveia Hi, I have no idea how to revert this change set. Will this need to be done via the api? Or is there a procedure I can follower on my browser? Appreciate the assistance. Thanks, Carlos

I'm afraid something looks to have gone very wrong with https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/288800325 etc. - it's merged all of the tags from the individual sections of former railway together, and most of them don't apply to any one individual segment. Compare for example ...
22018-03-06 21:11:31 UTCscrapperuk Hi Andy
I'd be happy for you to correct my error, and apologies for any inconvenience caused.
I guess the learning curve is a little steeper than I first thought
That particular segment is one that I've been heavily involved in physically creating by converting a disused railway into a useable p...
32018-03-07 09:32:23 UTCSomeoneElse Thanks - I'll have a look when I get a chance (probably later on today).
42018-03-13 00:52:19 UTCSomeoneElse OK - that should be done now. I've applied the tags that had been merged into the whole length (foot=permissive, highway=path, horse=permissive, motor_vehicle=no, mtb:scale=1, name=Clowne Branch Line, surface=unpaved) into each section and left the bridges etc. as they originally were.

42018-03-12 22:02:17 UTCSomeoneElse If you want to "just create a one-off map" then something like https://umap.openstreetmap.fr/en/ is probably your best option.
I'll have a go at tidying the test data here, by the way.

22018-03-06 13:31:00 UTCأ ش Yes, often the communication is a problem in OSM.

Maybe we should made an arrangement that both tags are used, e.g. "هەولێر / أربيل"

What is your opinion for a solution?

With best regards
32018-03-06 13:35:34 UTCSomeoneElse That approach is certainly used in some places in OSM when there isn't an obvious "most popular" value for that name. Given the "to and fro" edits that the name has seen "هەولێر / أربيل" is probably better than most of the orther alternatives.

42018-02-25 16:00:20 UTCDave Stanley The vast majority of what I saw was Erbil. It is worth having a look at the talk page for Erbil at Wikipedia as there is a fair discussion there. I do not read Arabic or Kurdish, so I cannot comment on those.

12018-01-17 22:29:12 UTCSomeoneElse Hi - I'm guessing that https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/553075716#map=17/53.13572/-1.29515 is a golf hole/fairway/whatever rather than woodland?
22018-01-18 13:35:26 UTCSK53 Yes, rather obviously!
12018-01-15 10:09:22 UTCSomeoneElse I'm guessing that the shoe shop https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/276871620/history isn't inside a phone box - presumably there's a phone box one side or other of the shop?
22018-01-15 11:23:41 UTCfitzsimons It's too long ago to remember much about this edit. The phone box is the one next to the postboxes at the DO. I can't see a shoe shop inside it. Are you seeing something I'm not?
32018-01-17 21:49:08 UTCSomeoneElse I was looking at https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/276871620 which has tags "shop=shoes" and "booth=KX100" on it. Maybe http://osm.mapki.com/history/way.php?id=276871620 shows the change clearer?
42018-01-17 22:22:54 UTCfitzsimons Well spotted. I see what you mean. Hopefully all sorted now.
12018-01-17 21:06:53 UTCSomeoneElse Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap!

22018-01-17 21:09:08 UTCmbforr It has been approved by Hennepin County:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Calhoun
32018-01-17 21:14:38 UTCSomeoneElse Thanks - although that says "The change needs final approval at state and federal level in order to go into effect" presumably the change at county level is good enough for OSM?
12018-01-17 10:01:25 UTCSomeoneElse Just checking - the rail construction up to but not including https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/319607231 is now marked as complete? Should the bridge be complete too?
12018-01-15 15:10:13 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
You've added an "area" unclassified road at the magic roundabout https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/7462227 - I don't think that that actually exists does it?
Best Regards,
Andy
22018-01-15 15:11:58 UTCSomeoneElse Oops - my mistake - you didn't add it, someone else did!
32018-01-15 18:12:31 UTCmikkolukas I just added more details. I believe the attempt is to show the area occupied by actual road.
Proposals for solutions to these kind of situations are made but none are ratified yet.
42018-01-15 18:14:36 UTCmikkolukas The area could be marked as highway=primary (and split to secondary/tertiary where appropriate)
52018-01-15 18:29:27 UTCSomeoneElse Yes, it's more of an "area:highway=blah" rather than anything else I think. That's usually the preferred way of mapping "road areas".
12018-01-15 15:15:14 UTCSomeoneElse Hi,
Whilst trying to work out what had happened to the Magic I noticed "ref=(45)" on https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/2235672/history - is that a legit ref (in a "leading to NCN 45" kind of way?
Best Regards,
Andy
22018-01-15 16:43:05 UTCRichard Pretty much - NCN 45 was originally 'braided' through Swindon with two possible routes; Sustrans has demoted one of them to a bracketed link route (as it has done in several places).

12018-01-15 13:11:55 UTCSomeoneElse Is adding spaces to opening hours (as in https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/464539974/history ) really required?
22018-01-15 13:33:52 UTCparukhin No, not really. But it make opening hours more comfortable for human reading. It's result of JOSM validator opening_hours "prettifying" options. (Adding spaces after ";" deleting after "," capitalization first symbols (mo-fr) etc.
12018-01-15 10:04:46 UTCSomeoneElse I'm guessing that https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/585425702 shouldn't be an amenity=telephone any more?
12018-01-12 16:24:50 UTCSomeoneElse Hello BlinkingNora,
Are you sure that https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/219187602/history is commercial? It doesn't look it on the imagery.
Best Regards,
Andy
22018-01-12 16:26:12 UTCBlinkingNora Hello Andy, yes the imagery is rather outdated as a lot of shops and other retailers have opened up right near the Body Shop down the road. :)
32018-01-12 16:34:12 UTCSomeoneElse Thanks! Are there still houses at the western end? If so you could split it in two and have residential at once side and commercial at the other.
42018-01-12 16:35:55 UTCBlinkingNora Hmmm, not sure of the specific details. I'll be visiting next week so will be sure to take some photos to make edits when I'm next back on my PC. (Not sure what OSM editor is available on Android)
52018-01-12 16:38:52 UTCSomeoneElse I've heard people recommend https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Vespucci as an Android editor, but not used it myself.

12018-01-10 10:27:38 UTCdaveemtb Hi, the path you marked as closed from Penally to the beach is (I believe) a public footpath that crosses a rifle range, and is temporarily closed when the path is in use. Your edit suggests it is permanently closed. Do you happen to know which is the case please? Thanks!
22018-01-10 10:27:55 UTCdaveemtb when the rifle range is in use, I mean!
32018-01-10 11:48:50 UTCSomeoneElse I'm guessing you mean http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/102403267/history ? That runs through the golf course, not the rifle range. The signage (back in November 2016) did suggest permanent closure rather than "when the bullets are flying", but things maye have changed since then.
At t...
42018-01-11 15:31:14 UTCdaveemtb The County Council had confirmed by email that the footpath from Penally level crossing, past the firing range, across the golf course to the beach is currently open and passable, and isn't closed during use of the firing range. I'll mark it as open.
52018-01-11 15:32:18 UTCdaveemtb Oh, and there was a problem with erosion following storms in 2014, which has now been addressed, perhaps that was the cause of the closed notice?

82018-01-04 15:19:52 UTCSomeoneElse I said "explicitly prohibits" because the Ts and Cs of the website talked about "personal and noncommercial use", which wouldn't be good enough for OSM.

12018-01-04 15:17:02 UTCSomeoneElse Just for info, https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_tags_for_routing/Access-Restrictions#Turkey suggests that foot=yes is the default on trunk roads in Turkey. If you've got an app that doesn't work without that tag, you probably need to fix the app.

52018-01-06 18:29:54 UTCmboeringa Yes, I know, but ultimately, if you do want the data to display in the "Standard" style, you will unavoidably need to consider this to some extent: osm2pgsql fills the PostGIS render database of openstreetmap-carto, and that database essentially needs Simple Features, as that is what PostG...

12017-12-12 23:48:25 UTCSomeoneElse Hello BeachBumRetiree,
Is there any reason why you changed the whole residential area here to a park? Maybe there are some "park" (or other green) bits and some "houses" bits?
Best Regards,
Andy
22017-12-13 00:00:17 UTCBeachBumRetiree The neighborhood is spread out over a large area of land, with distinct residential areas interspersed with parks, woods, trails, tennis courts, green spaces, etc. Labeling the entire area "residential" overlooks this fact.
32017-12-13 00:08:12 UTCSomeoneElse Thanks. In that case I'd actually split it up so that the "houses" bit is residential and and the other bits are tagged appropriately too (park/wood/forest/whatever).
42017-12-13 02:31:34 UTCS-zation But the fact that it is a housing development with woods, recreational areas, or grass dispersed throughout doesn't change that it is an area zoned for residential use.

Thank you for stopping the vandalism. I think I am ok with fixing the problems here. The biggest issue was the continual revert of the residential areas to parks.
32017-12-12 19:49:59 UTCSomeoneElse OK, thanks. We'll keep an eye open for edits by "known problem users" and keep an eye open for changes to the residential area. If you spot anything else iffy, drop a mail to data@osmfoundation.org .
Best Regards,
Andy

I've blocked this account for the reasons described at http://www.openstreetmap.org/user_blocks/1658 . Your previous account was told many times not to mistag residential areas as parks http://resultmaps.neis-one.org/osm-discussion-comments?uid=6310073 .

12017-12-12 11:56:37 UTCChris Fleming again - I don't believe this to be a park. This has been mapped as woods for nearly 7 years and has been edited as such by several people. Have all the trees been cut down and this turned into a park?
22017-12-12 13:02:55 UTCSomeoneElse Hello andrewmci,
Whilst we're grateful for new mappers in OSM including those who seem to have come via Pokemon Go, please don't change existing features to "parks", whether they be gardens or areas of trees. In OSM there are many tags to choose from; always pick the most appropriate. F...

Please don't "make things up" in OSM in the hope that things will turn up in Pokemon Go. This won't actually work for a couple of reasons - one is that people in OSM will change it back (as has happened here) and another is that according to the people who actually look ...

12017-12-07 23:38:47 UTCSomeoneElse Hello BlinkingNora,
Here you've changed http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/24807683 to a "park". It certainly doesn't look like a park from the available imagery - that suggests it's an arable field with tramlines in it that a crop sprayer can go up and down.

12017-12-06 16:51:24 UTCSomeoneElse Oops - here https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/5260355269/history got added at latitude 0, longitude 0. I have removed it.
12017-12-06 16:34:34 UTCSomeoneElse As you can see by looking at http://osmhv.openstreetmap.de/changeset.jsp?id=54067904 , something went wrong here. Were you trying to import some data? Presumably you did not intend to add it to the middle of the sea?

People have contacted you several times in the past about invalid admin level changes (including me, in https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/33275714 ).
Whereas most things in OpenStreetMap are simply a matter of going and surveying something and then adding the results to OSM, wit...

42016-03-14 00:37:22 UTCSomeoneElse One of the articles you quote says "Aruba is one of the four constituent countries that form the Kingdom of the Netherlands". http://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/2323309 is the admin level 2 relation; Curaçao http://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/1216719 is a subarea of that.

Currently a lot of addresses are displayed in OSM as Street, Willemstad, 0000AA, NL. This is not correct. Here in Curacao we don't have zip codes and the NL should be changed to CW. Since 10-10 2010 Curaçao is an autonomous Country that...

However, I'm not actually sure whether you're describing a problem with the data in OSM or with the Nominatim geocoder (Curaçao i...
82017-12-04 19:53:38 UTCtbakhuis It does sound strange when you see it like that but we never put NL (Netherlands) as country. I live in Curacao it just doesn't look right when we see Curacao, NL. Google's Geocoder has it right this time. Google Geocoder has Street, Willemstad, Curaçao

see https://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?pid=675929#p675929
122017-12-06 20:52:13 UTCEzekielT Maybe we should tag all of them (Kingdom of the Netherlands, the Netherlands, Aruba, Sint Maarten, and Curaçao) as admin_level=2, as they're all officially countries!
132017-12-06 20:58:34 UTCEzekielT As in:

Kingdom of the Netherlands (including the Netherlands, Aruba, Curaçao, and Sint Maarten) -> admin_level=2

Netherlands -> admin_level=2

Curaçao -> admin_level=2.

Aruba -> admin_level=2.

Sint Maarten -> admin_level=2.
142017-12-07 03:15:43 UTCtbakhuis Seems correct to me. Indeed they're are all countries
12017-12-04 10:42:54 UTCSomeoneElse Hello BlinkingNora and welcome to OpenStreetMap!
Thanks for all your updates around Littlehampton. I just wondered about the change to this landuse though - it was "residential" before, and on the imagery it still looks fairly residential, is it really best described as commercial?
Hope ...
12017-12-04 00:14:04 UTCSomeoneElse ... so there was I looking for wind turbines, and I found this one. It's the only "power:generator=wind", and there are various other ones in use: https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/search?q=wind#values .

12017-12-03 17:59:13 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
Lots of buildings here have the same tags as https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/343819447 . Is that correct, or has it perhaps been copied to them all by mistake?
Best Regards,

12017-12-03 13:00:52 UTCSomeoneElse "disconnected highway" is because it isn't joined to the roads at either end. You can see that by looking at https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/544319672 - if it was joined at either end you'd see each end say "part of way ..." like https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/38499018 does...

12017-11-30 12:24:59 UTCSomeoneElse Can yo provide a little more detail about this change other than just "boundary corrections"? As I'm sure you're aware, a number of the boundaries here are disputed, and it'd be helpful to other mappers to explain what was wrong and what the change was in more detail.

22017-12-01 07:16:17 UTCwambacher Hi Ivan,

beside the fact, that this was a political motivated edit (Rep Srpska is NOT an internationally recognised country), you made some technical errors.

changes have been reverted.
32017-12-03 21:40:12 UTCmichalfabik Hi Ivan,
you renamed the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina relation to "Herceg Bosna", why? I renamed it back to "Federacija Bosne i Hercegovine" as there is no recognised entity under the name of "Herceg Bosna". I'm quite certain that you know this very well.

52017-12-04 07:00:20 UTCmichalfabik Hi, yeah, it looks like it. I downloaded all three admin_level=4 relations that make up Bosnia and everything seemed fine, there was just this one glaring "error". It should be ok now.
12017-11-29 19:32:32 UTCSomeoneElse Just checking - have you checked this edit with the local community? http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/44078077 suggests it's an actual deliberate name change.
NPR suggests it's a valid change too.

12017-11-27 09:05:58 UTCSomeoneElse Hi,
I've removed the wikipedia tag you added here because the wikipedia page for an abstract concept ("null island") isn't relevant to a physical buoy floating in the ocean.

22017-11-28 01:57:04 UTCRexma423 I would disagree with you but do whatever you want.

12017-11-26 15:14:47 UTCSomeoneElse Hi,
Looking at https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/search?q=pillbox#values the most popular tagging seems to be "military=bunker" together with "bunker_type=pillbox". https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1916451008 is an example of it.
