[HOT] Suggestion to support Newbie development via Validated work

Hi All,

Might I suggest a way that will allow Newbies to see examples of good 
interpretation and digitalisation:

In OSM Task Manager, they could select a "Validated" tile, open it and 
look at the work completed. One would hope that the validated work is of 
standard, but that is a different issue.
I tested this, and found that I could "invalidate" the work via a 
button. I presume that I could actually make alterations to this work as 
well. Neither of these two things I did.

Perhaps, validated tiles could be accessible to Newbies to view only, 
thus allowing them to review what is considered good work. However, 
perhaps they should not have to ability to modify the work.
Selected tiles could be promoted as standard/quality etc. as the tiles 
get validated.
