When submitting and getting new data accepted for updating OSM maps, does the level of zoom determine the map information shewn ?

I updated the map area for my location but the NEW data only appears on screen when the zoom level is at its greatest. Reducing the zoom level by one 'level' shews the OLD / UNUPDATED data.

This is significant because any other user will not see the updated information UNLESS they zoom in to the highest zoom level !!!!!

It might take some time for your changes to be propagated via re-rendering and cache replacement. See (next paragraph w/ question: "I have just made some changes to the map. How do I get to see my changes?) for what you may do to see those changes by invalidating your browser cache.

If this does not help, please include a link showing the area you've edited or link to your changeset.

Are you the OSM user by the same name?

E.g. on this changeset from yesterday I doo see your change regarding the outline applied on all zoom levels (using a Fastly tile cache in Germany).

Hi Thank you. The link supplied does mention that some zoom levels may not be updated immediately. I will monitor the situation and see if/when all zoom levels are updated.
