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

Hello! I am absolutely terrified by the interface, made some edits and don't know how to revert them. Can someone help me? I need to undo everything by user Andrei Krbiko here: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/62203891

Given that it is now two months after your edits and nobody seems to have "fixed" anything in the time, could you explain what is wrong with your edits?

I accidentally deleted part of the building. probably no one noticed that. it must look like it was before those edits: one main building and two galleries forming П shape (but thanks to me the main building is gone).

@andrewkq: Welcome, great that you joined us! :-) Just ask for help and remember that everybody made many mistakes in the beginning, do not worry.

Reverted the couple of node deletions in https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/65968474#map=19/52.24843/21.06578 (sorry for the two left thumbs in the comment).

and to answer the question: see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Change_rollback . In short: there is no easy way AFTER uploading your edit into the database. Just ask here for a revert - or recreate the data (if it is just a bit).
