Hi, I have a problem with my work on OSM. Some of my edits can only be seen when the zoom is 16, but not closer. Why is this happening?? You can see the problem following the links:

Note how the "universidad de los andes" appears and disappears. This is the link to the change set:

If you've just uploaded your edits, it can be the case that not all tiles for the different zoom levels are already rendered. You can right-click on a tile to open it in a seperate tab, append /dirty and thus force it to rerender, though.

You can also see when a tile was last rendered if you add /status at then end of the tile url.

I have edited that zone hours before the last render and the changes still does not appear. However, I'm going to wait some days and see if there some changes. Maybe it's just rendering issues. Thanks for the help.

It's now appearing as you edited it on both zoom levels.

When you edit something in two different levels of zoom the result are diferent???

No, but the tiles can be rendered at different times.
