I've done various changes, but having problems with this one.

the street above 'Yacht Drive' needs to be correct. I want to delete some parts of it or completely and re-do it, but it doesn't work. I just cant delete this street.

Browser: google chrome. Editor: not the Potlatch 2.

Please advise how, Thanks

why can't you delete it? What did you try and what happend then? What did you expect?

In which editor?

by the way: you should not delete this street if you just want to change the name or move it or cut it into parts (for different names, for example).

how should I know why I cant delete it, standard editor.

I'have updated a lot in this area, so I know my way around OSM, nothing works with this street. You can also delete the two leftmost segments and I am fine. thanks

@Aq35ITyo8r9p Re "standard editor" - which in-browser editor you get by default depends on which web browser you use. I believe that IE users get Potlatch 2, and other users iD (although they're free to choose to use whatever editor they want).

@Aq35ITyo8r9p: please describe what you do if you try to delete the street and where your problem starts. I cannot see an issue (in iD – assuming that you mean this one)

@SomeoneElse google chrome, not the Potlatch 2

@aseerel4c26, so you can delete the street complete, did you test it? I can neither split nor delete it!

Please stop asking questions which are wasting my time. I know what I want to do and have a technical problem. I am here to get help with a technical problem, not to explain myself to you.

@Aq35ITyo8r9p: yes, I did test it in iD with Firefox and Chromium (selected way, pressed the trashcan icon or by ctrl+backspace: way 315183211 is gone, 1 change pending to be uploaded). I am asking questions for a good reason, sorry, I do not get it why you are that upset about my questions.
