looking at it ... we see that the island was deleted (apparently).

I have asked the relevant user to comment here. Once we know "what" and "why" we can restore it (with some advanced tools).

Oh, I just notice the similar user name: are you the same user to whom I just sent a mail? ;-) I will be offline now for some hours – other users here will continue to help you.

Thank you aseerel4c26 for your response. If I know what's happend, I didn't asked here. :-)

Please fixed it. I'm sorry if I mistake deleted it.

@Iwan Novirion: okay, I will fix/undelete/revert it in the next minutes. I will report here when done.

@Iwan Novirion: I only was confused because your name here is different from your name used at the editing ("me_iwan").

@aseerel4c26: Oh, it's my real name coz when got in here, I must sign-in back again and choose a username. Can I rename my username?

@Iwan Novirion: you can log in here with the same usernamme/password as on http://www.openstreetmap.org/ . You do not need to create a new account here.
I think you cannot rename the account which you use here currently (I cannot find it in my options - click your username on top while you are logged in here).

As we see here is seems that the island was deleted (apparently).

I guess it was accidentally deleted when the user tried to delete a newly added supermarket which was accidentally added into the coastline (or even fully accidentally added). More guessing: Being slight off the node when selecting likely caused the coastline to be selected and then the delete command was issued without looking properly which object got selected.

I have undeleted the island's coastline. It is now existing again (with the same id as before). I did not undelete the supermarket (its old position).

Since costlines are treated specially in the rendering process, it may take longer to show up again (a system admin says: nearly daily). By the way: it still is there on some other layers (some apparently had not updated their coastline yet).

I thought that coastline updates were daily now?

@SomeoneElse: oh, really? That news did not make it to me. If they are daily, then it is a bit strange that Iwan noticed that deletion that late (deleted: 16th October, now: 11th November). Okay, found it. Will add it to my answer. Thanks.
