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 UTCmeijerry 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,
Nearo

12017-06-05 10:31:36 UTCTomas Straupis Reverted random destruction of highway classification.
22017-06-05 15:22:41 UTCmeijerry 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 UTCmeijerry 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 UTCmeijerry ?
32017-06-05 15:52:54 UTCmeijerry 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 UTCmeijerry 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 UTCmeijerry ? 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
https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q743218
regards
22017-05-30 09:21:49 UTCmeijerry 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 http://wikimapia.org/739189/pl/Jan%C3%B3w-nad-Wili%C4%85 and Янава is the traditional Belarusian name (https://be-tarask.wikip...
32017-05-30 12:11:05 UTCmeijerry 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.
Regards
22017-05-26 19:39:31 UTCmeijerry 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 UTCmeijerry Change reverted (it was only one field road ...)
32017-05-12 07:46:45 UTCmeijerry 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 UTCmeijerry Aaaaaaaaa. I wanted to fill them in Polish, not in the "name" tag".
Thanks.
32017-05-05 13:55:27 UTCmeijerry (I mean: in "name:pl" and not in "name")
12017-05-02 11:23:25 UTCmeijerry Hi Tomas, why do you keep deleting the border checkpoint limits? I enter them so it is clear where they are, and so do OSM users around the world.
Moreover, I had created a couple of lanes on the Lavoriškės checkpoint in order to ease border crossing for people ("All passports", &...
22017-05-02 11:30:41 UTCTomas Straupis Because these (and a lot of other) objects are not tagged according to OpenStreetMap wiki information. Randomly mapped data is useless and it only introduces unnecessary complexity.
As per mapping agreements in Lithuania lanes are NOT mapped as separate vectors bur rather as additional lane tags on...
32017-05-03 07:44:58 UTCmeijerry You could have written that earlier - we are people, aren't we? It is important to talk. I am new to openstreetmap and so far, absolutely no one in Latvia, Belarus, Russian or Poland made any problem out of my changes to any border checkpoint, road, name, etc.as the aim is to be as accurate as possi...
42017-05-03 08:35:59 UTCTomas Straupis As far as I know nobody in the countries you mention is doing hourly changeset review. I did see a number of errors outside Lithuania, so somebody sometime WILL notice them and do something about it.
By "randomly" I mean that you did not check the meaning/usage of tags in OSM wiki. You wo...
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!
Best,
Poornima
22017-04-24 18:33:40 UTCmeijerry 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
Jerry
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. http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/317360830
Poornima
42017-04-26 08:37:03 UTCmeijerry 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 UTCmeijerry 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 UTCmeijerry 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 UTCmeijerry 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 UTCmeijerry 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)"

http://osmhistory.appspot.com/changeset/47972121
42017-04-21 10:38:06 UTCmeijerry 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 UTCmeijerry Hi. I live in Vilnius, I went already 3 times to Varnikai and I know people in this institution: http://www.vstt.lt/VI/index.php. The official name is Varnikų pažintinis takas and not Varnikų gamtos takas. Moreover, please have a look by yourself:
http://www.15min.lt/pasaulis-kiseneje/naujiena/p...
32017-04-21 10:04:37 UTCTomas Straupis OK. Changed name to „Varnikų pažintinis takas“ on all objects (ways, pois and relation).
