12017-07-25 18:48:42 UTCrene78 I guess this revert went partly wrong. For example node 1224150978 seems to be a valid village.
22017-07-25 19:00:17 UTCSwiftFast Are you sure 1224150978 is a valid village? I saw tens of villages all named "الدار", meaning "home". I assumed they weren't real.

42017-07-25 19:05:43 UTCrene78 If you go to this url - http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1224150978/history - Click on the coordinates of the last changeset, then edit, then zoom in as much as possible. You will see that there is a village. Maybe "الدار" is a common name in arabic?
52017-07-25 19:07:08 UTCSwiftFast Unlikely. "الدار" means "the home". It's even less likely to have many villages bearing the same name right next to each other. (See my links, and those aren't all).
62017-07-25 19:09:18 UTCSwiftFast Indeed there's a village. I think it'd be best to rescan all removed villages and re-add them without the name at all, just place=village.
72017-07-25 19:09:29 UTCSwiftFast Thanks for pointing this out!
82017-07-25 19:12:54 UTCSwiftFast In your particular example, if you zoom out a little, you'll notice there are 2 villages with seemingly valid names. Perhaps they also cover that area and it's all good after removing "الدار".
92017-07-25 19:32:45 UTCrene78 Not sure. But nonetheless it is a good idea to do some housekeeping once in a while. Especially quite a few of those maps.me edits are of low quality. Thanks.
102017-07-26 09:07:19 UTCSomeoneElse Any idea what the change to https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/256498994/history was here? It seems odd that it has got caught up in a "my house" tidy-up.
112017-07-26 20:42:38 UTCSwiftFast This node https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/2621574419 is part of the way, and it had its name tag removed.
122017-07-26 20:58:08 UTCSwiftFast Method used for anyone curious: Downloaded nodes bearing "hot words" via JOSM+overpass, and manually inspected them.

the queries are often of the style node["name"~"hotWord"] or node["name:ar"~"hotWord"].
132017-07-26 20:59:21 UTCSwiftFast A time-consuming followup would be manually inspecting the edit history of each person who added a node that was deleted in this changeset. Looking for easy ways to script this.
