newbie (or socket puppet?) shredding admin boundaries in Iran

Hi,

a "new" user https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/amin_najafi/history is doing a lot errors - all with your admin boundaries.

see https://wambachers-osm.website/index.ph … 2019-04-01

we were unable to fix that. i think the best is a full revert of all of his changes. please ask DWG to do this.

Btw: he added new admin boundaries with admin_level=1 (one) too.

Best regards
walter

Hi Walter,

Thank you for the heads up, Navid posted this topic in our Admin chat group, thank him, admins are taking this issue under consideration. We'll post the updates here later.

Warm Regards
Ebrahim

Navid informed amin_najafi via our chat group in Telegram and asked him to stop editing and recommended to read and watch some training materials, hopefully we'll not see more bad edits from him, and I emailed DWG to revert his changes.

Sosha, one of Iranian Community Chat Group Admins, commented on one of amin_najafi changesets, Changeset: 68947150, but as I mentioned previously, Navid already talked with the user and informed him and he will not do this kind of wrong edits any more, the problem is, we are not able to revert his changes and this must be done by data group.

Do you know what the problem was?  Is the problem that you don't know how to, or the area has been edited since, or something else?   I'm sure we'll be able to help whatever the problem is, but we'll be need to find out what the problem is first.

If the problem is that the area has been edited since then we won't necessarily be able to do a "clean revert" of their changes, and will need to know how best to leave it.

What would be really helpful would be some specifics in the changeset comments - none of the comments at http://resultmaps.neis-one.org/osm-disc … id=9583668 say "relation XYZ has been deleted and needs to be undeleted" - they just say "there are problems with this changeset".

Best Regards,

Andy Townsend, on behalf of OSM's Data Working Group.
