Discord is a well-known community server platform. It's kinda like a newer, more souped-up version of IRC, and it claims itself as a replacement for Skype and TeamSpeak. Does OSM have a Discord server, official or otherwise?
derrrrp do not respond
OSM is taking up huge amounts of memory on my Chromebook. Is this a known issue or is it because of the huge amounts of tiles, features, etc. that defines OSM?
While editing across the world, I noticed that France (among other countries) uses "admin_level=10" relations to mark administrative boundaries beyond towns. Should we use this in the United States? Feel free to discuss, as I'm not even sure on if we should use it here.
(P.S: With my name, I can only imagine a clone of the "Jake from State Farm" advert.
"It's Kurzov from Kannapolis." "Who is this at three in the morning?" "It's Kurzov. From Kannapolis."
Thank you for your input.
It has been too long. FAR too long, since I have last been here.
(Yes, I'm Kurzov/Katav.)
Because of the NASCAR race this weekend at Homestead-Miami, I decided to come up with a way to tag elements of a track.
Here is an example of my proposed tagging schema: http://www.openstreetmap.org/edit#map=19/25.45387/-80.40864
...and here is the proposed schema's wiki page: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/nascar
And it is still around in places. Removed this earlier today.
Well... It's been a while since I've written in my OSM diary. Not much has happened since then, other than me editing (rather sparsely if I might add), and not really telling anyone what I'm doing. Well, that's going to change soon. Sooner or later, with proper permissions if need be, I'm planning to completely redo all administrative boundaries in Cabarrus County, North Carolina.
Okay. It's been a long while since I've been here. Chalk it up to school. I don't know if any other cities have the same problem, but a few roads in Charlotte were simple lines, with all information removed, names included, other than bike lane information. I fixed a few, check around for other issues.
- 05/14/17: Sent message to mapper "mdsuper82". Awaiting response.
- 05/14/17: Mapper "mdsuper82" has been a mapper for 11 days as of May 14th.
- 05/15/17: According to the PM that mdsuper82 sent me, this is a project between the City of Charlotte and "People for Bikes". mdsuper82 also works in the City of Charlotte Transportation Department.
Gah! The Bing overlay is acting up again. On specific ways, the bing maps does not load that way into the overlay maker thing... and I believe the specific ways change every time I load the iD OSM editor. How can I fix it? Is it something with my network (CCS Schools/TWC?) or is it with OSM itself?

P.S.: I can't change the "home" location... I have moved, and I can't change my "home" location from my old house to my new one. I moved in the beginning of September and I still cannot change the "home" location. Is this a problem that I can fix?
Because I cannot sign up for the osm wiki, I guess that I will have to suggest it here:
to be used when the geometry of the area/line is approximate
to be used when a local survey is necessary
Also, the railway=light_rail needs a "easy key-value" changer like the normal railway=rail...
i can't sign up because you have to do a capatcha and there isn't one on the sign-up page
