Northern Borders of Commonia/User Diary searching

Posted by coshatiuav on 24 October 2019 in English (English).

Excuse me if this has been asked already - but the current northern border of Commonia and all countries above it are not shown at zoom level<4 - is it possible to fix this?

Also, will it be possible to implement (or show me if this is already a thing) a way to search for user diary entries?

Just an update - I tried viewing some boundaries (ways, not relations) in that area, and most are admin_level=3 or 4 instead of 2 for countries. Relations don’t seem to have anything amiss. But the one between Kuehong and Fayaan is admin_level=2. Can’t explain why that doesn’t appear at zoom level<4.

It isn’t the boundary ways. It is a manual update on the server. It is low priority.

Are you wanting people to explain how to use Google for you? While there are some useful past posts on the User Diaries, in whole they should be read with caution, as they are typically from the less experienced OGF users.

(add “” to your search query)

Hmm, didn’t think of using that. Thanks.

Personally I believe the border ways should be left with no tags (unless they are rivers or other natural features). Let the relations do the work as far as admin_level tagging. A broken relation means lines don’t show. A healthy relations means lines show. Simple.

Wait, if the admin level isn’t present on border ways, the relation’s admin level is what the renderer shows? If so I should definitely change the way some of my borders work :P
