[HOT] Validation of 'own' tiles

Hi again,

last night I went through all the validated tiles in #1009 and had to
invalidate most of them. Problem is that very new contributor (no or
very few OSM edits, almost no HOT contributions so far) validate tiles.
I wrote messages to all of them and it seems that most of them are
thankful for guidance.
I know there is some discussion about this in some other thread
regarding improvements on the process. However I noticed there is no
information about the validation step in the instructions to a task,
while the functionality is available.

Maybe we could add a standard note on this including the link to the
wiki in the tasks' descriptions?

Best wishes,
