Hi Tom
When we received new Post-disaster Imagery, I wen to previous tasks, and indicated the task as completed with a message saying in which task this would be done.
Looking at TM#1018 and TM#1043, it is exact as you noticed that we did overlap.  Not easy to compare / monitor from the Task Manager. 

Note that no data will be lost since these are two pre-disaster tasks. This create duplication with contributors examining twice the area an assure the mapping is completed.
To avoid duplication of efforts, What you can do is to compare the two TM and indicate the TM#1018 square completed with the following messageArea covered in task asks.hotosm.org/project/1043

I have discovered that some geographical areas appear in more than one project – with the *same instructions* (roads/buildings, etc). This is resulting in some tasks being marked as Validated in one project, and yet the same area in another project may not have this status. Examples are http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/1018#task/1548 Validated, and the same area http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/1043#task/89 marked as Done, awaiting Validation.This is happening at the edges of #1018, overlapping with at least #1043 (SoluKhumbu) and #1048 (Tanahu) – both roads, buildings, settlements, waterways projects.Helpfully, user ninjamask mentioned this in a task comment here http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/1018#task/2486 18 days ago. As Project #1018 is down to the last 10% I think someone should address this before too much work gets wasted.
