Deleted nodes now look like not deleted ones

Reported by: malenki Owned by: Tom Hughes
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: website Version:
Keywords: Cc: emj


After the last changes to the website deleted nodes now look identical to existing ones. Only the symbol of the node is not shown on the map but that could be mapnik just not rendering. All tags of the node are shown, a "deleted" like before is not visible.

I'd suggest either to strike through all tags of the deleted node and re-add the "deleted" or just turn back to the old behaviour which still shows up with ways. The behaviour atm is confusing.

I agree with you. I just discovered this today myself. Really, really annoying (hence me upgrading this to critical).

Here's an example of a deleted node:

You can't tell it's deleted at all and would think that it's still there, just not attached to any way and has no tags.

So, can this please get fixed ASAP? Otherwise, I could start seeing more error reports about this when people discover it.

Just because you find it annoying does not make it critical! Critical is things like "the web site is down for everybody" not "a minor feature is not as good as it could be".

For the record I've been away for a few days - this was raised while I was away and now that I'm back I will look at it as soon as I can - shouting and screaming will not make anything happen any faster.

I found the commits that removed the "node deleted" message we got confused by this as well.

Frederik added map for deleted nodes (by showing previous version):

TomH removed the deleted message:

Yes I did, because it was completely inconsistent to do that for nodes and not for other objects. Also it was using a translation resource that was from a different view.

I am still considering the best way to represent deletes, and when I have decided I will do that, but I will do it for all object types, not just nodes.

TomH, I'm sorry you thought I was shouting and screaming. That wasn't my intention. However, "ASAP" is normally in all caps. Could have I worded it better? Yes, I'll admit to that.

Fixed - deletes now say "Deleted at/by" instead of "Edited at/by".
