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

Hello, I have one question or ... bug report... Name it what you like...

I'm using Battlefield's Battlelog, which has regional leaderboards which uses these maps.

However, my city Novi Sad, is not listed, instead we have Petrovaradin, which is suburb of Novi Sad and auto location service puts us there, which is wrong... Don't know if this is the right place for this, just wanted to tell someone...

here's a photo: http://cl.ly/image/160g3y0O0K1Q

Thank you for your report! Is your problem report about the "auto location" or about that some city is missing on the map? "auto location" is not something which is provided by OSM. However, we will try to help you anyway. Please clarify.

Well, by "auto location" I ment this:

I press on set location button which then finds me in the right place (difference is 50 meters), but instead of Novi Sad, Serbia it lists Petrovaradin, Serbia.

http://cl.ly/image/3m0w2n0K3o25 Novi Sad is in Blue, Petrovaradin is in Red.

okay, do you mean the orange text below the crosshair in the screenshot? Quite difficult as we would need to know how that text is generated. If you go to http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=16/45.2578/19.8215 and hit the "where am I" link in the search box then only "Novi Sad" is shown as location.

Still, the problem may be in our data OR it may be in the algorithm which creates this text. Sadly, by a quick look at the data there I cannot see a problem.

Yes, orange text is the name of suburb near Novi Sad, and it is selected as my default city based on geo location service. Don't know why though, my only logical explanation was that something is wrong somewhere ina way that makes Petrovaradin higher priority.
