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

Looking at this: https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=15/52.5881/-77.3230

There's a lake there someone (relatively recently) added. If I click edit with iD and select the lake - it doesn't tell me anything about who created it. If I click History, I don't know how to read that.

Is this something I'm supposed to be able to do relatively easily with iD?

Thanks in advance.

do you mean the "History" button right of "Edit" in the top-most bar? That button is not from iD.

Oh. Makes sense now that you mention it :)

Instead of edit, use Query Features in openstreetmap.org (the ? icon on the right). Click on the edge of the lake to see a list of features in the left sidebar. Pick the "water" item there. Now you will see the details of the lake, including the most recent changeset information at the top of the sidebar. At the bottom of the left sidebar (scroll down) you will see View History. Click there for more history details on that feature. (There seem to be only 2 for that lake.)
