MapRoulette is actually flexible enough now to support similar validation
type tasks to what the Building Inspector offers. There are definitely
still some missing pieces, but I'd be happy to help work on supporting HOT
MapRoulette challenges.

If the NYPL tool does what you want right now, that's great too of course.
Whatever gets the job done!
