After reading the Beginners Guide i made yesterday a change on OSM. In guide states "Your edits will appear on OpenStreetMap's main map within a few minutes" I am still waiting to see a change that i made yesterday. Did i something wrong or need to wait further?

If you have edited with the same user name as here it seems you have not done any edits yet: your edits overview. Maybe you have not properly uploaded the edit in the end? Try editing again. If there are unsaved changes you should be prompted if you want to continue with them.

It did work now. The supermarket is visible on the main map at On other maps it may take a while longer to update.

I think my entry is already in database but there is still no supermarket symbol in place should i do something more. I thought it comes automatically. Here is the link
