I would like to know how to correct an erroneous street address. an address i recently searched for shows up 500 feet down the street and on the wrong side of the street. i want to fix this.

In order to get an accurate result from the search, we need to have the accurate data in openstreetmap. Although you don't give any information as to where you're having the problem, I'd expect it to be missing house numbers from the street that you are interested in.

To fix this, you need to sign up to openstreetmap and get familiar with the editing tools. See the Beginners Guide on the wiki.

To add addressing, have a look at the Addressing documentation.

You are wellcome to use the 'Edit' tab on the main page to edit the map.

I think the questioner was asking for a little more specific information than this.
