How to edit text on the osm (Standard) view background

Hi guys,

I’m new to this and just managed to update a node of a hairsaloon since the owner has changed.
I’m using the standard browser editor, I assume its called “iD”.
However I can’t find any way to change the old text written in something pinkish on the background (osm standard layer).

So any help greatly appreciated, thx :slight_smile:

  1. Do not forget press “Save” button in the editor
  2. Be patient. Just wait a moment (or an hour or a day) for server update tile images and reload (press F5 in a browser)

Thx a lot for the quick reply :slight_smile:

Alright, yes, the Node Code is .

So basically I just have to wait.

However just to be clear:
When I start editing the editor gives me this layer:

And this one is updated and totally fine.

But when I log out to browse as an user with no editing rights I’ll get this:

And on this one it still says “Lofty Perueckenstudio in Hamburg” which is just wrong.

However, in order for that to be changed I just have to wait, if I’m not mistaken.
Than I’ll wait :slight_smile:

It is also worth noting that different zoom levels update on different schedules. At the moment I see the new name at zoom level 18, but the old name at level 19.

I could be wrong but I think that background is rendered on the first Sunday of each month.

Let me quote myself:

All higher levels are updated as soon as possible, which usually means minutes, but last month OSMF servers have some problems and it takes longer and some areas still miss some z16 tiles:
