The “rule” is currently that a city doesn’t get added to your list in your profile page until you’ve completed at least one street.
There’s no “city cleanup” code, so it is possible that a city is updated from changes in OpenStreetMap in a way that leave you with a 0-street city in your list.
I’m reconsidering this after some conversation in Part of a city done but not being acknowledged by CS …specifically this point:
I’m strongly considering changing this “rule” to list cities in your profile page where you have progressed at least one street. This will change a few things:
- A lot of people’s city count will increase
- The list of cities will include a lot of 0% progressed cities
- Along the same reasoning, the list of cities will include a lot of e.g. “0 of 1839 streets completed” entries
That may be confusing, but I think it’s overall more accurate.
