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

I have moved a building a little (before it was at the center of the park): http://www.openstreetmap.org/edit?lat=48.573497&lon=39.30047&zoom=18

But now it looks strange at the map: http://www.openstreetmap.org/?minlon=39.2995921&minlat=48.5726449&maxlon=39.301347&maxlat=48.5743492&box=yes

Why does it look correct in edit mode and wrong in display mode?

It takes a while for the map to get rendered (minutes, hours or even days).

The map is built up of tiles, and sometimes the border of two tiles happen to cross the object one just have edited. If one tile is rendered with the new data, but then adjacent tile isn't - yet, there will be artifacts like the one you have linked to. One just have to wait and the problem will go away when all tiles covering the object have been rendered.

Tiles of different zoom levels are rendered at different times, so if you zoom out you will find that there are levels where the building looks OK.
