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

I have recently made a contrubution and set a "review_requested" tag to "yes". Several days have passed, but still there are no changes to the map. Does this mean the map will not change until someone has my changeset reviewed? How do I continue mapping in that area?

Refreshing the page does nothing as well as clearing the cache. Changeset No. 61378926.

Thank you.

Your changes are rendering when I look at them so maybe things were running a bit slow or you had a caching issue, but it looks OK now.

Your data becomes part of the OSM database as soon as you upload it. The review_requested tag doesn't change that - it flags to other mappers that you would like them to look at your changes, but those changes have already been made in the database.

I can see that changeset, so your changes were saved/uploaded, but I don't know whether the map reflects what you expected to see. If you can link to a specific object, for example in the format https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/542012134 , and describe what you feel is wrong we may be able to help more.

Oh. Okay I guess I just have to wait patiently. It just had always been a couple of minutes until changes appeared.

Here are same areas in view and edit modes. You can see the differences. (The one on the right shows all my edits; the left one doesn't.)

Anyway thanks for reply.
