Re: Changesets reverts

The process usually starts by contacting the editor, using a comment on the changeset page, politely describing the potential issues with this edit and asking the person to correct them or agree to a revert. There are also added values to this step - the person may learn not to repeat a naive mistake and the discussion is public in case of repeated issues.

A revert can be done later if the person is either unresponsive or prefers not to correct by himself.

Re: Changesets reverts

User ForceJ is messing with bus stops and other things. It seems the intentions are good but the edits have multiple issues. I've been cherrypicking the bad things to revert, but I don't have the time. I am tempted to revert everything. What should we do? See this: https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/55307717

Re: Changesets reverts

Ideally we'd go through the edits, fix or revert the mistakes, and keep the good parts. Which of his changesets have you reviewed? We (collectively) can go through the rest.

Re: Changesets reverts

I've reverted the bus stop changes across all changesets, plus removed several duplicate POIs. I did not thoroughly inspect the rest.
