Did OpenStreetMap recently change the zoom levels for when houses appear? I was going to finish marking off houses in a town, but realized I can't see which houses are actually missing outlines anymore! If I zoom in really close the house outlines appear, but at that rate it'd take hours to slowly pan over the entire town. And this is a small town!

Can you give a link to an area that shows the problem at the zoom level at which houses were shown previously but now aren't?

Literally anywhere works. When the scale says 250 feet no house outlines are shown, while at 100 feet they are shown. It's definitely a new feature they added, as I just noticed there's a new section at the bottom that says "n hidden features". Unfortunately clicking that "button" doesn't do anything, so I guess it just wants you to know that it's deliberately hiding the information you're trying to edit.

This affects the iD editor, so I'll just report an issue on their Github project page.

Oh, I see what you're saying now. The building outline suddenly just showed up if I pan the map to certain areas, but if I pan even a few pixels left or right the outlines disappear. Definitely a bug rather than a design decision.
