An example of this is #892 - Ebola Outbreak, Guinea, Kindia Prefecture,
Road network and settlements, task 77.  Lots of the residential areas have
only these barely visible round things.

Oops -- didn't mean to send that last one.  Question about huts -- in West
Africa there are a lot of huts, sometimes just out in the forest with no
rectangular buildings or clearings nearby.  Are these for storage?
Temporary housing?

Mapping in Africa from satellite images I find I'm adding perhaps half a
dozen settlements when I validate, they're quite quick and easy to do.
Some are huts and are not quite so easy to spot.

Question at what point should I invalidate?  The question arises when
perhaps I've added a dozen settlements and half a dozen highways, I'm
fairly experienced so fairly comfortable the work is OK after I've added in
the validation but there is the question that I've added a dozen
settlements and no one else will be validating.

I'm looking more for pragmatic answers more than anything else, there is a
concern that if I invalidate a tile it may demotivate a mapper and at the
moment we have a lot of tiles to map.
