Thanks Imre and Giovanni,
I have tried out your method on overpass and it work but the issue i am having has to do with the extent of the size of the data which makes the script to timeout.
When i tried extracting highway for the whole of Nigeria it timed out, i reduced it to a State it timed out too but when i reduced it to a lower geography it worked. I need the data for a larger geography, do you think if a have a faster internet the script can run before it timed out or do i try other browsers as i currently use chrome.
Will appreciate your advice.
I can't figure out the api method, can you please explain better

ThanksSamuel Samuel Aiyeoribe

 Hi  Samuel,
my tip for overpass-turbo:
you have to  add  "meta"  keyword to the "generated"  query :
"meta is the most complete mode. Beside child elements and tags, also the meta data (timestamp, version, changeset, user name and id) is printed:"
( see more:  http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Overpass_API/Language_Guide )
like:  http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/bwB  and you can export the data ... 
my method:- http://overpass-turbo.eu  + "Wizard" menu- and added :        amenity=drinking_water  in "Nepal"- press:  "build and run query"  ->  this result generate query, but without metadata ..
- on the code panel ( left ) find this lines :
// print resultsout body;

- add a "meta" keyword !

// print resultsout body meta;

- and re-"Run" again!   ( the result:    http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/bwB  )

be careful !!    The  metadata "user"  =  the user who last modified the object!!!so on this object ( http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1743138335 )  the "version"=4     you  only see  the last user name!!!!if you want to know the other 3 user,  you have to check the history:  http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1743138335/history 

regards :) Imre

Hello HOTties,
I will like to know if there is a way to download osm data with "timestamp" and "Source" field (source field should be the OSM username of the person that digitise the feature into OSM.
I have tried QGIS osm download tool, HOT export tool, overpass turbo and InSAFE but couldn't retrieve any field with "timestamp"  and "source" information. Hopefully there is a trick i don't know about.
CheersSamuel Samuel Aiyeoribe
