Cities disappeared

I just noticed my city count went down from 126 to 120, not sure when, I know it was 126 a couple of weeks back at least. The six missing are

Re: Cities disappeared

It stayed at 120 until today, now it's 121. It's Manhattan Community Board 5 that reappeared today...?
And I haven't been to NYC for years :-)

Re: Cities disappeared

I did a spot check on Manhattan 10, and it looks like your sole activity through there - NYC Marathon - runs along its edge and legitimately didn't pick up an nodes.  One possibility is that a recent edit moved a street or a node from one side of the boundary to the other.  So hard to say what happened, but by StreetFerret accounting standards, you're just outside the line there!

Re: Cities disappeared

Hmm, you picked the wrong one... this one could be because of the boundary of course, bu as six cities disappeard at once, in different countries it's strnage. Look instead at this run 

https://www.streetferret.com/sf/run?a=191798515

It lists Zinnowitz, and i can click it and see my streets run there.
But Zinnowitz is not listed under "My Cities" anymore ( it was a couple of weeks ago)

Same thing for the NYCM, if I look at the activity

https://www.streetferret.com/sf/run?a=424783256

I see six Community Boards, but in My Cities only three of them are shown

Re: Cities disappeared

Hi, have you had time to look at this last example? My count was at 121 since then, but today it's 122, but now I can't check which one has reappeared, I get an error on the Cities download:  =5em500
Sorry, StreetFerret had an Error.
Return to StreetFerret HomeThe error was 'java.lang.Exception'When reporting this error, mention the timestamp: 2021-02-14 14:48:23

Re: Cities disappeared

Sorry about that, the Excel download should be working now.

Re: Cities disappeared

Hmm, a lot of city names have changed slightly since last check Feb 4, e.g. Usedom-Nord is now Amt Usedom-Nord, and Dublin is now Baile Atha Cliath...
But apart from that, have you checked this:

It lists Zinnowitz, and i can click it and see my streets run there.

Re: Cities disappeared

The naming convention changes were due to switching over the display to use wikipedia-based names rather than the OpenStreetMap name= tag.  This is in order to deconflict cities in different places that have the same name.  Unfortunately that caused a few unintended results, for example, Dublin is tagged with the Gaelic-language Wikipedia article (because of course it is), so that's where the "Baile Atha Cliath" business comes from.
