I've just been reviewing some of the local comments left on OpenStreetBugs.
A few of the comments are good calls, but many are down to the inability
of Mapnik to show detail - e.g. complaint is "name missing" when it is
simply not rendered in a dense area, or "there should be X here" where X
is there but too small to see. There's also a number of incorrect
comments which are down to not understanding the signs on the ground
As the comments are all anonymous, I wonder whether there could be a
third mode which is "reviewed but not changed" which stays on the map.
Then I can leave an explanation of why it is the way it is, and it won't
be repeated time and again after a "closed" comment vanishes after a
week, either by the same person or another. I have no other way of
communicating with the author of the comment.
