Can anyone explain why this NP still isn't rendered after one month?

Other Np's with the same tags are rendered fine but this one doesn't.

If (as sugested by a comment to scai's answer) this was a database problem, it could have been related to the rendering problem that occured after the node numbers reached the signed/unsigned 32 bit boundary. The nodes in the ways making up the boundary were created just after this occured (10 Feb 2013) so their tiles may have been affected in the same way that some of mine were. ( see )

Thanks, it was probably a database problem, with type=boundary it still renders.

As far as I can tell boundary names are only rendered on zoom levels 8-11. Your area seems to be rather small so maybe the text just doesn't fit on the map. But this is just a guess.

This one is even smaller, and even the tiny polygon gets a name

Then it could be a problem with the data in the database. Try touching it to upload a new version. This might fix the problem.

Ok, lets see.. I changed the type=boundary into type=multipolgon, maybe this helps?

(03 Mar '13, 18:32) ligfietser

Now it renders. I hope this change was really necessary and not just tagging for the renderer.

Thanks Scai, I can try to reset it back to type=boundary to see if it still renders.

Maybe it's good to add a note to the object saying "retagged, see <link to="" this="" question="">".

It still renders after you changed it back to type=boundary so it seems like there was a problem in the database.
