Another Weird Thing

I added three states to Palaseskia and the names are not showing up. I tried refreshing a long time later, but they are still not showing up. I did name them though.

I can see the borders, but not the names.

I took a quick look at one of your boundaries.

You haven't created proper boundary relations. The only way to make the names show up is to create proper boundary relations. There is some discussion here, but I remember when I started, that help page was useless to me. I finally figured out boundary relations by very carefully examining well-made boundary relations made by other users, in the editor. I would open an area in the editor and just study all the objects, clicking on things, seeing how it all worked, but never saving anything or editing anything. Then, after I understood, I could imitate in my own map area.

You are free to look at the boundary relations in my countries of Mahhal or Ardisphere - they are all fully compliant with OSM standard (e.g. here, an area not well developed but with detailed boundary relations at all different admin levels).
