    5 In this preference settings, you can activate only the tests you need. By default, all error and warning tests are active.
    6 
    7 These are the validations performed by the validator:
    8 
    9 || || Validation || Description || How to fix ||
    10 || [[Image(source:/trunk/images/data/error.png)]] ||Duplicated nodes||Checks that there are no nodes in the very same location||Merge the nodes into only one, adding the properties from all nodes to the merged one||
    11 || [[Image(source:/trunk/images/data/error.png)]] ||Duplicated way nodes||Checks that ways contain no loop edges (i.e., a single step from a node to itself)||Split the way, and delete the way consisting of the loop edge.||

     7== Tests ==#Tests
     8Following four general settings are available:
     9 Use ignore list::
     10  enable/disable the use of the ignore list ''(default: enabled)'' \\
     11  ''Advance preference: `validator.ignore`''
     12 Use error layer::
     13  enable/disable the creation of a validator layer highlighting the problematic objects ''(default: enabled)'' \\
     14  ''Advance preference: `validator.layer`''
     15 Show informational level::
     16  enable/disable tests on informational level know as "Other" ''(default: disabled)'' \\

     18 Show informational level on upload::
     19  enable/disable tests on informational level on upload ''(default: disabled)'' \\
     20  ''Advance preference: `validator.otherUpload`''
     21
     22All check boxes below are settings which test should be run on which action with a check box on the left for manual runs, **''On demand''**, and **''On upload''** on the right side.
     23
     24By default, all error and warning tests are active.
     25
     261. If you are a OSM newbie and encountered validation error about objects you haven't touched, please ignore these messages for now.
     271. Validator can be wrong or incomplete about all tagging practices. Don't fix errors when you aren't sure something is really wrong.
     281. First, refer to [wikitr:/Help/Dialog/Validator Validator panel] - how to use validator

     174== Tag checker rules ==#TagCheckerRules
     175This tab consists of two list and some buttons. On the left side all available rules are listed and on the right side all downloaded and local rules.
     176
     177=== Available rules (left) ===
     178There is a search text box on top and below first the internal MapCSS rules and then the [wikitr:/Rules external ones] are listed. Some more info about each item will be displayed in a tooltip when hovering the mouse over it. Items which are already on the ''Active rules'' list on the right side are highlighted with a different background color which changes if the item is enabled/disabled on the right side. To get items from the left to the right, select them and use the [[JOSMImage(preferences/activate-right)]] blue, right arrow head button between the lists. With the [[JOSMImage(dialogs/refresh)]] button at the bottom reloads the ''available rules'' list from JOSM ([/rules file]).
     179
     180=== Active rules (right) ===
     181Rules can be enabled/disable with the check box in front of each entry. \\
     182The three buttons on the right allow to:
     183* [[JOSMImage(dialogs/add)]] manually add rules from url or local file
     184* [[JOSMImage(dialogs/edit)]] modify selected entry
     185* [[JOSMImage(dialogs/delete)]] delete items from the list
     186The [[JOSMImage(preferences/reset,link=,24,middle)]] reset button at the bottom resets the ''active rules'' to default, removing any manually added entry.
