Where does the names on the building come from? We have a church in Malden MA (USA) that is now a city owned building (Senior Center, 7 wahington St) it still says Centre United Methodst Church. In some views it shows the new name that I placed, and in other zooms it shows the old name.

I think maybe you are seeing old tiles? The name I see is Malden Senior Center as per the tagging on this way if I am looking in the correct place. Having said that I can't find what might have previously been tagged as the United Methodist Church - perhaps a node which has since been deleted. Ah, yes - you deleted it I think. So you are seeing tiles which are most likely cached locally to you. Try whatever method clears your browser cache (often something like Shift-F5).

I thinked it worked. How ever 2 things 1) It still have the "Cross" Symbol and the building disapears when zoomed to 1 notch below the max. Did I delete the building from that zoom level?

I don't see a cross symbol or the old name at any zoom level, so suspect you still have some old tiles cached somewhere.

Yes, I see it was an error with my network setting that would not clear my cached folder. I had to manualy delete all files.

Do you see the building when zoomed to the level just below the max zoom level?
