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

I've added a path and furniture using iD and uploaded the changes. After many hours the changes are not on the OSM. I've done this many times before with no problems. When I login to OSM and use iD I can see the changes with no saves or uploads pending. Can anyone help please?

I cannot help, but I can confirm I'm getting the same thing. I did tons of edits last night, now it's about 18 hours later and no sign of them on the map, although they do exist in edit mode. I was wondering if it was a problem with me, but seeing you have the same issue I'm assuming it's nothing personal, just the servers being a bit slow / backed up?

It's not just you - the same question is being asked elsewhere (see e.g. https://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?id=69069 ).

In the short term I'd suggest using a different tile layer - either one of the other 3 at osm.org or somewhere else altogether.

Glad you asked this. I was wondering the same thing. I'm new here, and was wondering why my changes were not showing. They still seem to be visible when I'm in the (basic HTML) editor. But not when I am not in the editor.

The system appears to have started to work again. I entered edit mode, made a minor change and then on exit all my changes started to appear on the maps - not at all magnification levels immediately.

Thanks. Now I know it's not just me I'll suspend edits until my previous ones appear. Perhaps osm is suffering from coronavirus!!
