[HOT] TM3 and validation

Remember I'm basically lazy.  I do two things when I validate.  The first
is clean up the second is provide feedback.

The sooner someone receives feedback the better the response.  You get more
tiles out of them and they are of a higher quality.  This means less clean
up for me to do.

Someone confirmed the feedback loop and confirmed that within 24 hours is
best then you get a trickle down effect so after a week you get much lower
responses.

The other part is if I'm validating tiles that are a week old am I going to
annoy the mapper because they may have already corrected their bad habits
as a result of earlier feedback and yet these are still being mentioned.
So the mapper doesn't get a warm fuzzy and to be honest it takes longer for
me to provide proper feedback than to have mapped the tile myself.
Remember I'm lazy.

So when I land on a project the ideal is validate the most recently mapped
tiles first then quietly clean up the rest.

Does that make it clearer?  It's about problem avoidance or prevention
rather than verifying the mapping as such.

The how long have they been mapping helps, some mappers I'll take a quick
glance at, newer mappers it's zoom in and look for a few more things.

Thanks John
