Hi I have two questions: I registered a new address on the map and wanted to confirm that it is active (created_by iD 2.19.6). how can I know?

It seems to me that it is, but I have the map on a website and it is not showing up correctly located:

can they help?

You have successfully entered the address on the building. You have also given your business name to the building. Now it looks like the building is named In Status - Mediação de Seguros. If you business occupies the whole building you can just add an appropriate tag describing the business. Maybe office=insurance?

If your business is only one tenant in the building better add a new node inside the building outline which you tag with the main tag office=insurance (or whatever is appropriate) and move the name= from the building outline to the new node. The name should be the name only and not contain a description of the business. I don't speak Portuguese but I guess the name is really only In Status, isn't it?

As to why the map is not showing the right direction is a different matter which has nothing to do with the mapping but rather with how you embed the map. Maybe someone else can give you a hint here.
