Hi, welcome to OSM.
The name tag should only be used when it is an actual name, It should not be used for a description which in this case can be derived from the tags.
Cheers Phil

I imagine it will continue being a pub and will keep the same name, I don't think Sam Smiths are planning to sell it

Hi, should amenity=parking be removed from relation 534410? You comment suggests this is no longer a car park, and it can't be both a service road and a car park.

Is that an official name? Signpost or an OoC map?

Hi, welcome to OpenStreetMap. I think in this change you were probably intending to indicate that the highway has one or more sidewalks alongside it. The way to do this is to use the sidewalk= key (see

Yes, I can confirm that I have been travelling and to all these places.

I used the StreetComplete app to enter the data and set the "Auto-Sync" to "on WiFi only", which might have been the reason for the large number of changes...

It appears to be temporarily closed for the Tideway works (that'll be at least for 3-4 years I'd expect). I didn't survey the dogleg of Kirtling Street to the east so I can't confirm whether it still links up to the path/William Henry Walk there, but...

Hi, if a road has two names then one name goes in name and the other in alt_name, as was already the case for this road. I have therefore reverted this change. You can also use name:left and name:right if the two sides of the road have different name...

Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Just a few things not obvious in the guides that I noticed and changed.

The oneway=no tag is usually inferred in the absence of a oneway tag,

Maybe adding source:name for armchair edits might be a good idea for all these new roads.

Hi Stephen,

Are you aware that this change set has altered ALL of Monkseaton, Whitley Bay, and a chunk of Tynemouth into one very large park?

Can I suggest you revert back from leisure=park to...

Hi, this looks a little odd. Tourism=attraction is a very odd way to describe a Training Centre.

I know this is a 6 year old edit but it's wrong and it's going to take a long time to correct. It says on the wiki not to use areas for walkways.

They don't render on the renders correctly,...

I'm reverting the A644 and A642 back to trunk. Yes, this doesn't actually mean trunk in the Highways England sense of the term, it's just a term OSM use to define what we know as primary routes. It's not you, it's OSM and it's confusing, however thes...

Hi Mike

If a pub is just a building then the tags should be placed on it, but if, as in this case, it also includes a car park & garden or even multiple buildings then it's more accurate to map a boundary polygon around everything owned by the...

Hi, please have a look at – turn lanes are never mapped as separate ways unless physically separated from the main carriageway (which is not the case here as far as I see).

No response so I've tagged node as disabled parking space.

No response so I've removed the fiction guideway that duplicated other ways. Tags had already been removed leaving a long untagged way.

Hi, you are right actually. I was misinformed that The Golden Road was equivalent to the C79. I'll fix it.

I change garden to park because everybody can visit and I change the tree, because is really an old tree (maybe the name I choose wasn't the correct).

Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I think you've placed your buisness POI in the wrong position, it's actually on Jackson Close. You could also add the tag craft=hvac or craft=plumber.

Hi. You have done some landuse NE of Foxhangers Marina. It appears you have defined some areas as barrier=hedge AND landuse=farmland. This renders as a field full of hedge, because hedge can be an area. I think it is normal to define hedges as lines ...

Thank you, I will update the library to a building with the museum inside.
Looks interesting so will pay it a visit.

Hi, I notice you've added a few railway junction names recently using place=locality. As you can see from the wiki page the tag is supposed to be used for things which don't have a proper tag.

Hi, the correct tag is landuse=construction - you should be able to find it in the iD editor preset list if you begin typing in construction.
