There is a label in Wakatobi Indonesia that appears at lower zoom levels (<15) and disappears at zoom level 16. Because it disappears, it's not possible to edit it out. It doesn't belong and needs to be removed from the base map, but I can't figure out how to do that. Does anybody know how to go about removing this kind of label? The label name is Samabahari.

I cannot find any object in OSM named 'Samabahari'. Could you please go to, zoom to the place where you see the label and paste the URL here.

You deleted the node six days ago.

If you are still seeing it then you are viewing cached tiles. Or z12 which I think is regenerated periodically

Ah yes, see

which says "Low and medium zoom tiles (z0-z12) are usually re-rendered only when a new osm-carto version is being deployed and on the first Sunday of each month"

Thanks for the response EdLoach. I believe you are correct. I'll keep an eye on it for the next month and see if it disappears. It's currently showing up only on z12.
