I have a changeset (11160853) which contains a few very localized edits, yet the bounding box covers half of North America??? Can this be fixed?

Before asking questions on this forum, please ask yourself if the question and its answer can potentially be of interest to other people at a later time. If not - and this is often the case with questions that concern a particular object in the database - then asking on IRC or on a mailing list is the better option.

I'm a newbie, so I apologize for posting in the wrong place...but gee, the book I have in front of me says "At, anybody can ask questions about OpenStreetMap". Actually I'm quite honored to have been answered (and so quickly) by the author!

Take a look at the node history of node 1698667325! It had the coordinates lat="0.0" lon="0.0", but that is now corrected by the user kellerma by deleting the node.

I found this by manual inspection of the osmChange XML.

Can the bounding box be edited? Or am I forever stuck with a Changeset page where one erroneous changeset boundary dwarfs all of the correct ones to the extent that they can't even be seen?

As far as I know the bounding box will always show what you actually did - not what you intended to do.
