Hi - when I was a new mapper, I deliberately split the tasks into tiny
ones so that it was not so scary and overwhelming. I wonder if this is
more likely to be what's happening generally. I remember using a
Tasking Manager beta version (I forget which one) which didn't let me
divide the task down lower than a certain level - that was really
offputting for me. As experienced mappers, maybe you like to work with
large squares, but please don't forget that new mappers may find that
size intimidating...
