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

Hi, I'm completely new to this and currently trying to help mapping in the Nepal earthquake areas, via mapgive. Using the iD-Editor, I found the quality of the Bing aerial images so exceptionally poor that I can't make out any features of the landscape at all; it's just a green-brown blur really. After setting background to custom, some small areas on the map now show up in high resolution, but the majority of squares simply stay black, even after a very long loading time. When I zoom in, everything stays black. I've got a very fast internet connection. Any advice?

Join the #hot IRC channel web UI or the hot mailing list and ask for support there. Available imagery will vary on the task at hand and further given the circumstances hiccups providing it are unavoidable.
