Building not showing its name at any zoom level

Hi,

I have a similar issue as eteb3 in the other topic... This building https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=19/49.42927/7.75137 does not show its name although it's correctly named "Deutsches Forschungszentrum für Künstliche Intelligenz", at least as far as I can see in the editor... I guess that's due to other institutions being in the same building, such as "Creonic GmbH", but I think that's certainly not correct, is it?

Best regards,
Christiane

I guess this is the reason. If the name is long, the probability of being eclipsed by some other objects is rising fast.

What about if the object is also tagged with "short_name"?

We don't use this (or any other name-related) tag.
