Welcome to the TNMCorps Q&A community!

The color key of many features indicate they have been edited, but when consulting the history the statement appears that the feature has not been edited?

This scenario is addressed in the Incorrect Approved Points topic, but I'll revisit here:

While most points with a yellow border have been recently checked by someone at the USGS, there are still a few rogue points whose editing status was preserved or modified when we uploaded the data into the new editor in August 2016.

We don't put a lock on yellow points for such an occasion as this: sometimes even the yellow points will need to be updated since structures are dynamic. And since there is no way for our small team to make sure all yellow points are updated all the time, we rely on our vast team of volunteers to notice when those changes need to be made.

So if you encounter a yellow point that is out of date or incorrectly located, you have our permission to make the necessary changes. However we highly encourage you to make a note in the comment field informing us of the changes that were made and why they were made.

If you encounter a yellow point that you think might need to be updated, first search for that structure in the edit history. If that point has no edit history it was likely loaded into the editor back in August 2016, as-is, and was probably never actually reviewed by the USGS. This situation is most common in yellow points, but you may also encounter other points whose edit status is incongruous with the edit history. Treat these points as if they were all red (i.e., unedited) and make any necessary updates.
