22017-09-15 08:30:01 UTCJay May ?
12017-08-09 10:15:17 UTCjuhanjuku Why you connected waterway and highway with node?
Node: Valka (LV) - Valga (EST) (5022787218)
22017-08-09 10:49:40 UTCJay May Sorry, I do not understand your question... Where exactly?
32017-08-09 10:53:42 UTCjuhanjuku Select below in your changeset node
Node: Valka (LV) - Valga (EST) (5022787218)
and you see the place
42017-08-09 10:57:53 UTCJay May I am unable to see the exact place.
Anyway, I don't remember merging a waterway and a waterway with a node. So it is most probably a mistake from myself. Could you please correct it?
52017-08-09 11:04:41 UTCjuhanjuku Its border point where highways Semināra iela & Sepa intersect with stream Varžupīte.
You can see error in Osmose.
I can correct it.
62017-08-09 11:08:52 UTCJay May Aaa. now I see it. Actually my aim was to merge the border point on the bridge so it is in phase both with the national LV/EST border, as well as with the river (Varžupite). However, that border point must be on the bridge.
I was also looking for the Estonian name of that river, but haven't found ...
12017-07-31 15:45:14 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you explain all the name tags of this node?
I doubt it has this name with '3.5 t'
22017-08-01 07:13:29 UTCJay May Hi :)
Sure! This is for people using OSM-based GPS apps (ex.: to know which lane is for regular cars (≤3.5t meaning “for vehicles with a weight up to 3,5 tons), and which one is for trucks (TIR, abbreviation of Transport International Routier, is understood by every truck driver u...
32017-08-01 14:30:29 UTCmueschel We do have a clear policy that the name tag contains just the actual name and does not contain any description. For this you can use tags like maxweight or hgv. If tools like do not support this, request them to adapt to common OSM tagging rules.
42017-08-01 17:40:00 UTCJay May One question: what will it change for OSM if those border control tagged names are not visible to regular OSM users anyway?
52017-08-01 18:15:40 UTCmueschel Who is a "regular osm user"? There are hundreds of different maps and tools around. All of them render different things. And for example searching for names gets increasingly difficult if we add arbitrary information to the name tag.
62017-08-01 18:52:38 UTCJay May I'm afraid this is not arbitrary info. It is useful info, otherwise I wouldn't waste my time to look for it and reflect it on OSM. Rules are there as an indication, and may sometimes be wrong Some of them must be changed.
You state the policy on names it clear. I'm afraid it isn't. There are a cou...
12017-07-10 07:44:59 UTCTomas Straupis Do NOT delete name:lt tags.
22017-07-11 09:11:34 UTCJay May Do NOT write in big letters (this shows aggressiveness) and do NOT delete my changes on Kareivių g. Thank you.
32017-07-11 12:11:45 UTCTomas Straupis Please read the manual and stop adding crap data to the map and I will not delete it because I have NEVER deleted any good data.
42017-07-11 16:07:08 UTCJay May You have deleted good data already a couple of times (useful border crossing info, names, and so on), and you thought nobody would discover it. Not only from me, but other users. Stop assuming you know everything better than everyone. Kareivių g. being widened, and such data is useful both for OSM ...
52017-07-11 16:21:22 UTCTomas Straupis I did try showing you your errors, but you bluntly ignored my guidance and continued random mapping. So I have no other option than to revert your changes.
Widening of Kareivių does not need new vectors as there will be no physical barriers. Once again, instead of complaining you should better rea...
12017-06-18 14:22:30 UTCNearo Hello Meijerry,

In this changeset you changed the French name of Maastricht, and the English name of Nijmegen. While these names were used in the past, both cities are currently referred to with their Dutch name. The French and English version are not in use anymore. Therefore I would like to kin...
22017-06-19 06:37:17 UTCJay May Hello Nearo.
As a French guy, I can tell you it is true Maëstricht is not used by the current generation, but I stilll know elderly people who use it.
About reverting changes: I am abroad right now & I can hardly access any computer. Could you please revert those changes for me this time?...
32017-06-19 21:14:59 UTCNearo Hey Jerry,

I just changed the name:fr tag of Maastricht to old_name:fr. Furthermore I found some old documents where Nijmegen is referred to as Nimeguen in English, so I did the same with the name:en tag there.

Kind regards,
42017-06-20 04:22:55 UTCJay May Thanks :)
12017-06-05 10:31:36 UTCTomas Straupis Reverted random destruction of highway classification.
22017-06-05 15:22:41 UTCJay May This is no highway... I have friends living in that part of the city and I drove there 2 days ago. That street is not asphalted, bumpy, and not suitable for big traffic.
32017-06-05 16:21:11 UTCTomas Straupis Please study according to what principles ways are classified. Paved, not paved, bumpy or not has absolutely no influence on classification.
Good rule is to NOT edit what is already entered, because most of the time you're destroying good data and I could one day decide to revert full changesets r...
42017-06-05 18:22:59 UTCJay May Following your logic, Tomas, it means OSM is useless because you can't correct mistakes from previous users nor add forrest tracks for bikers, nor update road classification changes, etc. OSM's advantage is that if any change has been seen on spot, it can be made immediately. If some roads appear 30...
12017-06-05 10:27:33 UTCTomas Straupis Reverted random destruction of routing tag „noexit“.
22017-06-05 15:23:53 UTCJay May ?
32017-06-05 15:52:54 UTCJay May What is that "noexit" tag?
42017-06-05 16:22:45 UTCTomas Straupis If you do not know what that tag is and how it is used, then do NOT change its values.
52017-06-05 18:10:03 UTCJay May First of all: I'm not your child, so please speak nicer to me. I am pretty confident I'm older than you are.
Second: if I touched it not knowing what it is, it means I didn't do it on purpose.
Third: you didn't answer my question: what is that "noexit" tag?
12017-06-05 10:36:52 UTCTomas Straupis Reverted random incorrect classification.
22017-06-05 15:25:38 UTCJay May ? Incorrect classification of what?
12017-05-29 20:04:35 UTCRichRico Hi meijerry,
Thanks for contributing with osm, the names according with wikidata are different the names that you modified
22017-05-30 09:21:49 UTCJay May Are you referring to Janów nad Wilią in Polish and Янава in Belarusian?
Janów na Wilią is available in a couple of sources, among which wikimapia and Янава is the traditional Belarusian name (https://be-tarask.wikip...
32017-05-30 12:11:05 UTCJay May Added "Janów" in alt_name:pl and "Ёнава" in alt_name:be.
For Belarusian names abroad, I will try to add always the traditional name as primary as that is the one that is used by Belarusian speakers (and not simple transliterations) :) Any additional questions, feel ...
12017-05-26 19:00:46 UTCRichRico Hi meijerry
Thanks for contributing with OSM,
I found a changeset in the name of the place:town Salacgrīva according Wikidata Q659665 the name is "name:pl=Salacgrīva" and not "name:pl=salis".
Maybe you have a another explanation for the name Salis.
22017-05-26 19:39:31 UTCJay May Hi! Sure. In this specific case it is wikipedia in Polish (though it is shown as a historical name). I know it sounds more Lithuanian than Polish, but well... you know how it is in PL/BY/LT/LV where Baltic names tend to be mixed with Slavic ones. As I know wikipedia is far from perfect, for other Po...
12017-05-10 19:35:40 UTCTomas Straupis Note that it is a CRIMINAL OFFENCE to use Google Maps or Google Street View for OSM. My advice is to revert all changes promptly and read terms of usage of any source you use BEFORE using them. In this case it would be good thing to read Google terms of service.
22017-05-12 07:18:37 UTCJay May Change reverted (it was only one field road ...)
32017-05-12 07:46:45 UTCJay May Btw, I read those Google terms. There is only one mention that may make you think it is a criminal offence (but this sentence is still ambiguous): "No incorporating Google software into other software. You will not incorporate any software provided as part of the Service into other software.&qu...
42017-05-12 08:28:05 UTCTomas Straupis This paragraph is regarding software. Regarding data Google has stated numerous times that it is not allowed to vectorise data from google sattelite imagery, google maps or google street view.
12017-05-05 09:15:01 UTCTomas Straupis Reverted some incorrect changes of stream names.
22017-05-05 13:55:11 UTCJay May Aaaaaaaaa. I wanted to fill them in Polish, not in the "name" tag".
32017-05-05 13:55:27 UTCJay May (I mean: in "name:pl" and not in "name")
12017-05-02 11:27:43 UTCTomas Straupis Changeset reverted, because nothing in it was done according to OpenStreetMap conventions in wiki as well as not according to mapping agreements in Lithuania.
It also introduced wrong routing information as well as other problems.
12017-04-24 11:03:29 UTCpoornibadrinath Hi meijerry,
I came across your edits and noticed while you added the town name, you have deleted the place=town tag itself. Please be careful when you are editing and ensure you are not deleting any valuable data while editing a feature. Thanks!
22017-04-24 18:33:40 UTCJay May Hi Poornima!
Thanks for your note.
How can I see where is the mistake I made? I see only a zone, but not the place itself.
Kind regards
32017-04-26 06:30:03 UTCpoornibadrinath Hi Jerry, This is the node for which you deleted the town tag. You can open the node in JOSM and check.
42017-04-26 08:37:03 UTCJay May Wow, I hadn't even seen I deleted it! Thanks!
12017-04-25 16:16:14 UTCTomas Straupis Atstatytas teisingas (oficialus) gyvenvietės pavadinimas „Elzbietina“.
22017-04-25 18:07:49 UTCJay May O.K. Ačiū
12017-04-25 06:05:21 UTCTomas Straupis Reverted surface to asphalt, because Lithuanian road agency says that is the surface of this road.
22017-04-25 06:19:44 UTCJay May Hmmm. Strange. Last time I drove there it was a horrible dirt road. I will try to check it out one of the next times I drive to Poland.
12017-04-21 10:10:32 UTCTomas Straupis restored incorrectly deleted place=village on node 3093855128
22017-04-21 10:39:29 UTCJay May Thanks. My computer crashed when I was modifying that one ...
12017-04-21 07:07:59 UTCTomas Straupis „(rejon wileński)“ is definitely NOT part of the NAME in any language.
22017-04-21 09:47:05 UTCJay May Which name are you talking about? Sometimes when you add a name in a language it automatically adds some indications like "rejon wileński" and so on. Perhaps it is somehow linked with Wikipedia?
32017-04-21 10:07:18 UTCTomas Straupis I do not use iD. I just see that data had name:pl="Kiemiany (rejon wileński)"
42017-04-21 10:38:06 UTCJay May Hmmm... Strange. Anyway, as I told you - I remember it was made automatically. Perhaps to distinguish it from the village Кемяны on the other side of the border, which is also called "Kiemiany" in Polish. Technology mysteries :D
12017-04-21 07:13:19 UTCTomas Straupis Please do not change local names without knowledge on how they are used.
22017-04-21 09:45:37 UTCJay May Hi. I live in Vilnius, I went already 3 times to Varnikai and I know people in this institution: The official name is Varnikų pažintinis takas and not Varnikų gamtos takas. Moreover, please have a look by yourself:
32017-04-21 10:04:37 UTCTomas Straupis OK. Changed name to „Varnikų pažintinis takas“ on all objects (ways, pois and relation).
