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

I recently added my first point on OSM - a public toilet at 43.12681/12.05348 - but it seems to have disappeared. I'm guessing I did something wrong but I wonder what. Can anyone help please?

So you're saying it was flushed away?

LOL. Apparently not flushed away. It was still there in edit mode but since I'd given it no attributes it wasn't visible in normal view...

I have added amenity=toilet to tagging and it now works.

I have added amenity=toilet tag

see http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=19/43.12691/12.05373

Unless the name of the public conveniences is really name=Toilet (which I doubt) then the fictitious name should be removed from the database.

I'm sure Grahaml will learn all that wiki tagging link

@GrahamI: I try to explain the name issue with more words and links: You have tagged (and it is still) the toilet node (among other tags) with name=Toilet. Which likely (but not necessarily) is wrong and should be removed.
