I've noticed that Midistland is particurarily troubled with stuff like that. Isn't it funny that these don't appear in Gobrassanya nor Commonia nearly as often as in this country? Or maybe I don't see them. I don't mean regular newbie messups. I mean enormous cities made solely of highways and other major roads packed so densely that Gobrassanya compared to that is a roadless desert. Recently there was this, which used to be more filled with motorways until User:bhj867 fixed it.

So, did you find any more of these urban planners' nightmares? What do you think should be done to them? Do you think Midistland should become purple? Or did you see those outside of Midistland.

This is something different than Breassau. Breassau was a good mapped stuff but with too much motorways and this thing you linked is just bad and hopeless. The of the city is wrong, not the road categories. But this is not only example of tragedy in OGF world. Few days ago I spent a hour watching cities in Commonia. There is a huge amount of cities like that, probably created by newbies.

I think it is impossible to prevent newbies of mapping things like that and... well, blue countries are places where it should be made, because it is first contact with OSM interface for many, probably young and furious people and they can not map anything better.

So probably the question should not be "Should Midistland be purple?" but "Should Gobrassanya be purple?" because it is a piece of great mapping a lot above newbies' abilities.

Gobrassanya, to me, is one of the most successful blue countries, but I think the reason is that more experienced mappers can easily control the area. To me, I think there should be a small part left for newbies while the rest is a purple area.

What I don't like about blue countries like Mecyna or Commonia is that there are cities or towns with just a point, or few details. Even after the details they are not connected to other major motorways in the country.
