@experienced users of OGF/JOSM
I know the new forum is opened and it's preferred messages are posted there, but I wouldn't know where to put this problem (the closest thing I found was 'Collaboration > Technical problems and solutions' which seems to be for the problems with OGF). So I thought I'd put it here in the User Diaries.
Today I was editing and detailing central Chorley, with a lot of new things I wanted to bring to the map. But when I tried to upload it as a changeset, it gave me the constant error that it could not upload the file due to certain problems with another relation. After a few tries I decided to save the file and restart JOSM. Then I tried to re-open the file I just saved, but now it won't even let me open it and gives me the error
Both relations to places in the Ardisphere that I visited earlier today (which looks amazing btw) when looking at Mstr's Featured Objects page (which also is amazing) for inspiration for my rivers.
Now I'm stuck with this annoying error. I really want to upload this file so I can go back to mapping the rest of the town with the proper layout, instead of guessing where everything is.
Another strange thing I noticed was when I opened JOSM after many attempts and a few hours and dismissed the error, and went in the menu to the list of active changesets, I saw this changeset by me still unclosed, so I closed it, but it is empty, as can be seen.
I'm really distraught at the moment, I don't know what to do with it. I searched the web for help in documentations and forums, but neither of them were helpful to me. I don't want to lose such a large part of the progress I made today. Is there a way I can still upload this .osm file I have on my computer? Does anyone know how to solve this? 😪
