New to OSM,
First, I created an account on the main page with “Gerhard” as name.
But the site (main page, lìnk on top right) didn’t let me log in, sayin “no user”
(Browser cookies enabled).
So I thought that I’d done something wrong, and asked for mailing me the pw. No response came.
Then I made an other acount, named “GerhardP”, plus changed the password.
I had to use an other mail account, and another name : the site says that my original name and adress already are used…
With this new email/name/pw, I also made accounts for this forum here,
and for the french-speaking mailig-list (they accept).
Allas, the OSM main page “login” link persists to say that I, “GerhardP”, don’t exist,
and offers to create a new account.
Is that kind’a “dead link” ? not implemented ?
New accounts… I’ll run out of e-mail-adresses, sooner or later…
I managed to upload two gpx tracks
(over there, it asks for e-mail adress as identification, not the name)
and found out that one has to put the file to upload near to the hard disk’s root,
not too far down into sub-directories,
and no french accentuation in the filepath nor in filename,
else the server says “wrong argument”.
Finally it worked, the tracks were added to the database,
but I didn’t receive an “email on completion” (that’s what it says, on “your GPS Traces” page, after upload).
Yesterday, nine time in ten tries, I could not acces to openstreetmap.org,
neither with safari nor with firefox (Mac OSX10.4.9).
Since this morning, I tried to upload an other track, but it said :
“POSIX error: Invalid argument” (NSPOSIXErrorDomain:22)
on page http://www.openstreetmap.org/trace/create.
Now it passed,
at about the seventh try, fourth re-boot, trying with safari and firefox.
I can’t pass hours and hours at trying to link to osm site…
Can anybody tell me,
where’s the hickup -
what I’m doing wrong ?
(I got no problems to contact other sites, wikipedia, mail, rss and so on : they run fine.)
Post scriptum :
