I have a problem with the following boundary relation:

It was deleted yet it's still being displayed in the map. Any idea why?

It's the usual story I think - tiles just not yet updated. This question has lots of details about the process. I requested an immediate rerender via "/dirty" of and the rendering of the relation was removed from that tile.

Thanks for the clarification.

Hi! Is there a way I can request all the tiles showing this behavior to be re-rendered, it's not just the tile you sent here, it's the whole region covered by the old no longer existing relation.

Anything that did an automated series of "/dirty" requests might be frowned upon by the server admins and other users because it's trying to "jump the rendering queue". If the server's busy there's no guarantee that your rendering request will get processed before everyone else's.

General advice for out-of-date rendering: be patient :) The rendering server will eventually get around to updating all the tiles, it may just take a few days.

If you want more control over what is and isn't rendered, you are always free to set up your own tileserver, and rerender whatever you want as often as you want/can. However if you don't want to do that, you'll have to share the server with everyone else. :)
