My boyfriend just deleted a lot of features in Ioannina city (Greece). He thought he was in play mode. Is there anyone who can help restoring the map or undo the changes??? We're in panic...

Did he use the "iggy982" account?

I suspect that may be the changeset.

If you've made some errors on the map, there's no need to panic, but it's best to try to get them fixed as soon as possible.

If you know the changeset that the changes went into, someone in the community can do a revert.

If you don't know, then let someone know your username, and they can dig up the changeset. It's probably best not to make any more changes until this is resolved to make the changeset easier to find.

This process is straightforward but can take a while, so it may be best to have someone on IRC give you a hand.

Thanx a lot! This is the changeset:

But who's gonna do the revert?

I'll do it.

Please do not let your boyfriend touch the map again. :)

Or better teach your boyfriend how to map and then let him touch it again.
