It's my understanding that using tools like keep right is preferable but if iD had a few basic QA tools I believe data quality would increase overall and you would get more users taking interest in QA efforts overall.  My suggestion was to halo/highlight roads that did not have a name tag.  3-4 other simple QA functions would be great (non-squared buildings, disconnected roads, duplicate polygons/ways, etc).  It would prevent some beginner mistakes from persisting in mapathons/HOT tasks.

Good suggestion.

There is a good basic error checking in iD now that I try and
highlight, "check for warnings when you save, here is what they look
like". if we could just enhance that some it would make a big
difference like you say.

I would not check for missing street names though, most of the HOT
mapping and Missing Maps mapping, we can not enter street name, so
people if possible will be specifically entering those at a later
time.

so I would rather not highlight that as an error for the many who
remotely map as it is not really an error, just mapped for refinement
later.

no tags on area (buildings), primary roads that connect to tracks etc,
square check like you say and others I am not thinking about can be
actual potential errors so I would like to remind folks to look at
those twice.

cheers
blake
