Hi David,

about http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/669#task/50

Yes a lot of confusion therer. First the Landuse, we do an ouline around all the residential area, not for every single house. And sometimes simply area=yes. I also see a house outlined with the tag residential=yes.
Way 192437514 can be better aligned by zooming-in enough to assure to see more detail.
When you see paths going in all directions in the field, without any house, I dont think that it is significant to trace all this. It simply add some confusion to the map.

You could first try to give instructions to this contributor and see if he is ready to correct. Otherwise, yes simply erase all the polygons, keeping only highways.

Our support team contributors that take care of validation can support you for more precis instructions.

After finishing the #668 task, I've taken a look at #669 and found this:


Looking at it in the data view (or downloading the tile into josm) 
reveals quite a mess with weird tracing and tagging. I've seen similar 
(albeit on a much smaller scale) tagging on the other task. There I've 
just fixed it and notified the user. Having the same weird stuff here 
suggests a kind of training fail to me. Maybe you want to check up on 
the people on your side and the training material to find out where 
there's something fishy going on.

I've not touched this for now, but would I start on this, I'd probably 
just erase all (or most of it) and start from scratch.

Regards, David
