[HOT] Bounding box not in iD Editor anymore

Blake,

Thanks for your reply and explanation of the situation, and thanks to
everyone who is working on getting the fix deployed. I thought the problem
might have something to do with the fact there were so many of us hitting
the wifi at our venue, and hence causing the content request for the
bounding box from the other website to timeout.

I wonder if iD might be changed in the future to optionally accept four
parameters (minx, miny, maxx, maxy) and use those to generate the bounding
box (or better yet hatch out the area outside the bbox like JOSM)
internally, rather than having to pull the information from another site.

Rebecca,

Thanks for the work around!  I keep that handy in case this happens again.

Mike
