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

I spent the last couple of days building a map of Kpandu, Ghana for a project. However, large portions of the map are not visible at particular zoom levels. It's only when you get pretty close to street level that everything looks as it should. Is there a way to make sure that the entire village is visible at all zoom levels?

Quick summary: It takes time for changes to show up, tiles get rendered only when accessed.
You might need to clear your browser's cache to see the newly rendered map.

There is no way you can change the style used on www.openstreetmap.org for your village, but you can render your own map, on when doing so, you decide what gets shown on which zoom level.

Numerous questions on this site deal with rendering your own maps, e.g. "How do I render my own maps for my website?"
