On the 16th March, 3 weeks ago, I added a load of roads in the region of , and they were rendered in reasonable time in all appropriate zoom levels except level 12, which still has not been rendered. Could this be due to a fault somewhere in the system, or am I just being impatient?

No, that does not sound normal. Max a day or two I guess, but then something is probably wrong. Normally my edits show up within a bunch of hours.

First I had a hard time to see the problem because different zoom levels carry different amount of details, but here is a link to a road that is not visible in level 12 (but in the adjacent zoom levels) and its edited Mars 16th by you:

Hopefully someone here has an explanation.

The roads in question are centred around the coordinate given; in the village of Rathdrum and in the (previously-) blank area north-west of the village, including the one you mentioned. Thanks.

I'd suggest looking at this question and answer, about what happens when the queue is full and how to check the status of a tile and/or add it to the render queue:

For example, this tile is one of the ones missing your roads:


shows it was last rendered on 5th March.

The queue is full as I type (and has been often lately)

but I have tried

to add it to the queue so it may re-render shortly if you are lucky.

OK, thanks, that's very informative. However, I'd wonder about the sanity of the algorithm when a particular zoom-level sits in the queue for weeks while adjacent levels appear to get rendered quite promptly.
