I'm getting an error, "Authorization Error, please login", while editing certain names. I assume they are protected in some way. Is there a way that I can edit these?

I am using the account "Torguy2".

I'm also receiving "Authorization Error, please login." when trying to update the location of https://www.geonames.org/1694008/republic-of-the-philippines.html to a lat/lon which lies inside the polygon.

Hello,

Am trying to update the preferred en for Brisbane (class: city) - http://www.geonames.org/2174003/brisbane.html as Brisbane CBD. Am receiving the error "Authorization Error, please login".

Is it possible for me to have access to edit this? I seem to be able to edit the others fine.

Hi Rachel

I assume CBD stands for 'central business district'?
If yes, then it is here

I'm having the same problem. I'm trying to add some public parks in Toronto so I can link them with Wikidata, but am being asked to log in (although I am logged in already).

I’m having the same problem trying to edit or delete feature Ciénaga la Zapallera id 3782991.

Natural feature describes a lake, it doesn’t exist there.

As an alternative it can be edited to show real conditions of place as

Zame: Zanjón La Cañada
Class: Stream,Lake,…(H)
Code: Drainage canal (CNLD)
