I want to make a few islands in my country, but they won't show up as land.

How do I make Islands?

creating a Place = island does not create land. It does however allow you to give the island a name and thus allowingpeople to search for it.

creaing a natural = coastline however does create land, bare in mind that 1: the direction of the way/line MUST be anti-clockwise as to not screw over the entire ocean 2: coastlines take longer to update in the view mode than other edits

Hope it helps, check the wiki as well, creating and changing coasts can create issues. Happy mapping!

You DO NOT use natural=coastline for islands in an inland lake. You add them as "inner" members of the relation.
