I am new and have information that would correct an inaccuracy

I have created an account, otherwise I would not be posting. My home street address is incorrectly named. (Also on Google, Yahoo, etc.) I also can correct intersecting streets. Who and how do I submit this information. Thank you in advance. I am a bit leary of posting my direct email on a public form so when the correct “person” posts an answer I will go there. I have never been able to correct the information. I have contacted my local fire department and they shrugged their shoulders. Again, thank you.

Hi Ayehli

Welcome to OSM and this forum!

If you have created your OSM-Account you can edit everything by yourself. There is an online editor on our main webpage or you can install an editor and edit data offline.

There are several FAQs and a beginner guide in our wiki which you might be usefull: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Main_Page

Please keep in mind that your edits go right into the main database, so be careful what you change. If you’re unsure do not hesitate to post your questions here or in one of our mailing lists (http://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo).

you could also create a bug report here if you don’t want to edit
