How Long Do Edits Take to Become Live?

Just that


If you mean that you can see them on the default map on - currently there is high load on OSM Foundation servers. It may take several days.

But you can try to use the layer selector on the right panel on and choose “humanitarian” style - it can update faster currently.

As an aside, I advise you as a mapper not to focus only on mapping what you can see on that default map style; there are many other things like opening hours for shops or speed limits and surface for roads. Treating OSM as an image-only map is not doing it justice :wink:

Thanks for the reply, I’ll wait awhile and see what happens - we all have to start somewhere and the simple stuff is the easiest place to start :slight_smile:
