I've found what you are doing on the video, your accent is fine you know of
course that people studying English like what it is spoke years ago travel
to parts of the US to record the Americans as their language has been
isolated for many years so it much closer to English what was spoke when
their families emigrated.

Yes I can pick out a user who registered ten minutes ago and the tiles they
mapped but that isn't what I'm after.  I'm after the most recently mapped
tile and that's the one that is the most valuable to give feedback on.

By the way I'm using cut and paste on the name displayed below to give
feedback with the @ sign or <Crtl>i to grab the username in JOSM, its
faster than typing it in as you were doing.  Some mappers are naughty and
do not completely map a tile, but their mapping still requires feedback
even if someone else finishes it off.
