Thanks Paul. Stoke's not really an area that I'm particularly familiar
with, unfortunately, although east of there I connected up a bunch of
unjoined roads (where it was obvious that there was a road from other
sources) or added fixmes (where it wasn't) over the weekend.
Keepright link in case it helps:
(basically, go west from there)
At least one other person (Andrew T Finney - not sure if he's on this
list but he did message me about it over the weekend) is also sorting
out these errors (I regularly check for changesets from darren39 and
found that Andrew had beaten me to fixing most of the recent errors).
Presumably there comes a point where we have to say "enough is enough"?
The general guidlines on the
"http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Vandalism" see relevant here (even
though I'm pretty sure that this isn't vandalism - just incompetence).
Along with other people, I've tried to contact darren39 several times
over the last year and have never had a reply. He's actually been
editing since October 2008 but is still adding unconnected streets with
misspellings such as "Shakespere Court" and "Tigar Yard" and with
dubious positional accuracy.
What does the community think the next step should be? Is it an email
to the data working group or is that only relevant for actual vandalism
rather than just crap mapping? Obviously this would have to take place
in parallel with fixing the data - but we've repainting that particular
Forth Bridge for 3 years now* and patching the gaps in the A52 and A523
gets tedious when you do it for the third time.
