Do you have a link or coordinates to the roads involved so we know what we are discussing?

Is is maybe this change set you mean? http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/changeset/8787795

No one can delete his projects on real maps: http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/KristiG/edits ?!

Reverted changesets. Please check that nothing necessary got lost and fix minor issues if there are any. There are at least some common bugs(ways without tags, unconnected roads, etc) in that area.

Thank you RM87! Very good work! I saw your changes and it looks ok now. But maybe you can check, what is the problem in this 2 or 3 black lines in this 2 roads near Tirana, http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=41.3695992529392&lon=19.6911478042603&zoom=17 This roads are edited also be me in the past...

(04 Aug '11, 10:55) kaprik

@kaprik an entirely separate issue... but if you look at that area in a suitable data validation tool such as http://keepright.ipax.at/report_map.php?zoom=17&lat=41.36954&lon=19.69086 one of the reported problems is:

loopings, way 109285552

This way has only two different nodes and contains one of them more than once

It might be worth trying to fix that problem with the data and see if the rendering issue goes away... and asking a new question if you have any further issues unrelated to this original question.

Thanks for the links. But I could not find any roads on the map that are not on the Bing images. It seems that everything is looking good. Have someone already removed the roads you are talking about?

However it seems that there are a lot of primary and seccondary roads and almost no tertiary or resedential roads that you might expect in a city.

Update: Thanks for the new links and an explenation of what is wrong. You can send a message to the user and ask nice where this information comes from. If he does not respond within a reasnable time and you are sure that it is vandalism you can revert the changesets.

I wrote a letter to KristiG. Will see what answer I recieve.

(26 Jul '11, 20:53) RM87

Recieved an answer from KristiG. It came out that these "contributions" were not ment to appear publically. She is sorry for trouble she made.

If anyone has time and knowledge dealing with conflicts then 12 changesets await reverting. http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/KristiG/edits (edits that were made on 21 and 22 july).

(27 Jul '11, 22:02) RM87

Dear Gnonthgol, I wrote to KristiG and asked him about this changes and he told me, that he is disappointed about this chaos. He didn't know that this changes must be published and viewed to whole. Please, maybe you must delete all http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/KristiG/edits (edits that were made on 21 and 22 july). Because this edits are just a projects (fantasy) from him for urbanistic task on the university, and aren't true and realistic.
