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

The public map does not show Sugar Lake in Minnesota but it appears to have been edited and made into a lake by someone - perhaps here Q21197250 but how is it not showing up on public maps using openstreetmaps as the lake being there. Please help and thanks in advance. :)

Based on the Wikidata ID, it's this one: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/60325575

Someone edited it back in January and removed the natural=water tag, replacing it with area=yes. At that point, there weren't any tags indicating it was a lake (or really any kind of feature). I've changed the tag back, so the lake should show up again soon.
