strange french message Explain please!

Posted by رامز on 15 January 2014 in English (English)

Hi

while surfing Egypt map I noticed some French message blocks as shown:

This is the first time ever I've seen such blocks! So this is kind of spam, Hack, or Server error?

problem

if that was server error so kindly explain why it's exclusively in french not English and why error message looks not complete "there is ... at the end?"

Egypt-Sudan Un-correct Border JOSM help

Posted by رامز on 5 January 2014 in English (English)

Greeting awesome OSM,

Note #1558 mentioned that border of Egypt-Sudan was too winding/wobbly..I've checked it and he seems right refereeing to Official UN Africa map and Egypt govern provided map the border should be a straight line...here is the note: ((please pay attention that I'm not talking about Halaib/Shalatin problem here I'm talking about the line of the border itself should be straight not that wobbling)). http://www.openstreetmap.org/note/1558

and here is the UN Africa Cartographic Africa Map: https://www.un.org/Depts/Cartographic/map/profile/africa.pdf

U.S. Central Intelligence Agency reference Map https://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/africa/egypt_admn97.jpg university of Texas Library reference: https://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/egypt.html

Finally to summarize...The border line should be just above 22°N latitude as shown here clearly: http://www.mapsofworld.com/egypt/

The idea is that I can't edit the map as ID editor doesn't help too much in very long lines,I'm asking help for JOSM experts to edit the border and match it with 22°N latitude and clear that border wobbling.

thanks in advance..
