Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I drawed a lot of buildings in the centre of Zurzach. Most of them are shown, but not all. I checked sveral times if the way is closed and the tags are correct. I could not find any mistake. Can someone have a look? Thank you very much.

The other ca. 70 buldings are well rendered. Oh, I added them to OSM ten days ago.

In all of the cases I checked you had not joined the end back to the beginning properly. My advice is zoom in more and hold the mouse pointer over the first point before clicking to be sure you join the way up. In many cases you were very close, but you had joined near the beginning, leaving a small piece sticking out. If you zoom in closely enough you can see this. If you zoom in enough it is also easier to trace the outline of where the building is on the ground. If you find a small stub sticking out you can select that node and just delete it to leave a closed way.
