I don't think so, but maybe then Potlatch is the wrong tool for your task. If you get to that conclusion, there are two possibilities: modify the tool or choose one that suits your needs better. Maybe you should give JOSM a try ;)


Hi Peter,
we're aware that using JOSM would counter this problem, but we have deemed JOSM too complicated. Many of our participants are recently retired, with limited computer skills. They have enough of a challenge just learning to use P2. Also, we normally have only around 7 hours at our disposal to get people editing safely, without being menaces to the map;)
