updated colour=Red,Black,Brown,Rouge,rouge,Yellow,Green,braun,grau,White,Blue,Gray,Rot,Grey,Orange,Gris,gris,Anthracite to English spelling without capital letter. Fixed some of the warnings too, but there were too many that I didn't understand
please avoid to edit features on different continents within the same changeset because this leads to large bounding boxes and changeset which are difficult to review.
These changesets need to be done globally to avoid fixing the same thing six or more times. As someone else I spoke to has pointed out: "Honestly it needed doing."
If it helps you, I will make a separate changeset for the German-speaking countries next time.
He's been told, plenty, before. He won't engage (in good-faith or with intellectual-honesty).
See the (lengthy) discussion in http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/108548780
Trying to reason with him is futile.
Hey Lee. If you don't have anything productive to add, then I suggest that you map something instead.
More projection & evasion. Difficult to take you at all seriously when you don't follow the same expectations you have of others.
You won't engage with community, so you're hardly one to judge the merits of how others do so. Nor do you get to dictate what's (socially) productive.
Since you seem oblivious; I, having consideration for others, was attempting to save Nakaner the time & trouble of a fruitless argument with you, given your attitude elsewhere.
Just because you don't see it as productive, doesn't mean that it isn't.
The very nature of changeset discussions are about doing something other than changing the map. They're at a meta-level. This suggests that you don't understand that which isn't absolute & tangible. Or, possibly, that you're a narcissist (especially given some other factors).
As I said; I do surveying (which depends on weather & other factors), so have added / updated plenty (without pissing off other people).
s/color/colour/ isn't mapping anything. Remind me how many hours you spent on that; to bark at me about having nothing better to do, yet to complain when people hold little more than contempt for your misconduct? That's an impressive amount of denial.
What happened to your interest in & enthusiasm for, water features? You'd rather spend longer then I dismissing & otherwise bickering with several people trying to give you constructive advice.
In my experience, petty retorts mean that you have no rational counter-argument, yet are still butthurt. Grow up. I've met children (of <10 years age) with more maturity.
Get off your butt and go outside. Survey your university campus (since you can access areas which visitors can't).
Again & still with the presuppositions, I see.
@Lee Carré: please stop with the insulting language. It is not helpful and does nothing to advance the discussion.
Seems that you're missing the relevant context. See Friendly_Ghost's recent changesets with more than a couple comments (I can cite the IDs if necessary; one is already mentioned in a previous comment). He doesn't engage when people try to reason with him, or with the community, doesn't respond or act in good faith, and so on. Thus, in this instance, reason doesn't advance anything either.
If aware of context, then you'd know that he's attempting to insult (or provoke) me by attempting to throw my own words back at me when it makes for a convenient quip, instead of confronting the relevant subject directly.
But, hey, if you wanna flog that particular dead horse, be my guest.
Personally I'd rather engage such people, rather than (as seems common on OSM) blocking them.
I don't really care for tone-policing or other (soft-)censorship, either. That not only doesn't help, but harms.
@Lee Carré I am well aware of the various discussions (many people at this point are subscribed to the changesets given the recent community interest in @Friendly_Ghost's large changesets), and I am following them with great interest. I realize that you are passionate about this topic, but personal attacks are simply unacceptable and I ask you to stop.
“personal attacks are simply unacceptable”
I'll cite the words of someone wiser (and with much more net-cred) on the subject: http://linuxmafia.com/~rick/faq/crybaby.html#adhominem
I trust (read: expect to see) that you'll be applying the same to others, if this is (indeed) a matter of principle and not simply disliking that I'm direct about it (or me, for whatever reason), and that I'm willing to say what myself and others are thinking.
Unless, of course, to disagree is also a ‘personal attack’ (since you're repeating a request for something which didn't recur). I'd rather know sooner than later if OSM has succumb to SJWs.
“I realize that you are passionate about this topic”
While I won't deny passion, it's not about the topic (as you characterise it).
Don't presume to know my motivations (else you would've asked me); that's patronising. While I recognise your greater experience within OSM, don't assume that it extends to other contexts.
You're also assuming (by juxtaposing them) that any passion I have is why I question the personal credentials which were implicitly cited (since reason was long since abandoned) as justification for the changesets in question.
This is off-topic, now, so if you wish to continue I invite you to reply by PM. I'll say no more here.
