It seems that you drew a large residential area in the Dominican
Republic. User 4rch remarked:

"the polygon did cover large areas without residential landuse"

At first sight, 4rch seems to be correct; the area in question seems to
be mostly meadows and forest and even an occsasional quarry, whereas a
residential area would be interpreted as (quote from Wiki) "An area of
land dedicated to, or having predominantly residential houses or
apartment buildings."

It would have been nice of 4rch to contact you and ask what you meant to
map; perhaps you just mistakenly selected the landuse=residential
category and wanted something else entirely?

I suggest to first determine what your polygon was meant to describe; as
I said, it doesn't pass muster as a residential area. Perhaps you  meant
to draw an administrative border?
