Reason for block:


I noticed you were conducting an import or mechanical edit with The OSM Sysadmins have requested that all imports, automated edits, bulk edits and bots be stopped until the redaction process has ended.

More information can be found at

This block will last until you log on to to ensure you read it.

When the redaction process is finished please fix any partial imports that are left in the database. If help is needed, contact the imports@ mailing list and/or talk@, but suggests that if you do not know how to fix an import you do not import, so please keep that in mind for future imports.

As a general reminder, the other import guidelines including documentation, consultation and other technical requirements can be found at
