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

Could I get some help with the syntax of an Overpass query? I modified an administrative boundary when adding a stream that borders that boundary. I thought I was careful to not join any nodes between the boundary way and the stream way and on checking in the iD editor I don't see any. So I'm trying to figure out the syntax of an Overpass query that would help me find the nodes in the boundary way that I may have changed inadvertently. I've tried the following but it doesn't give me the intersection of the nodes I've changed that are also part of the boundary.

( way"name"="name of admin boundary"; node(user:"myuserid"); );

thanks much!

I figured out the answer, I needed to do the node recursion. Here is the final query that I used.

// gather results
   way["name"="name of admin boundary"]({{bbox}});


// print results
out body;
out skel qt;
