Thanks Lars, this is a huge help! No more testing required, this will do for now. I will add this info to the ticket. 

I got some insights into IE browser use breakdowns earlier this morning from TomH, suggesting that IE11 is used bu just under 10% of OpenStreetMap.org visitors. This is more than all other IE versions combined for OpenStreetMap.org. So I am happy for MapRoulette to support only the latest versions of IE. 

Let me know if you think this is a bad idea.

Now I am going to fix some wrong direction waterways ;)

Hi Martijn!

I have access to BrowserStack at work, so I tried it on several versions:

Win8/IE11: Works.
Win7/IE11: Works.
Win7/IE10: Works.
Win7/IE9: Works. iD not supported.
Win7/IE8: Fail. Javascript errors (probably jquery related). No slippy map.
WinXP/IE7: Fail. Doesn't load. Javascript errors.
WinXP/IE6: Guess... :)

Let me know if you'd like me to test it with any other os/browser.

Hi all, 

I pushed a small fix today that should ensure MapRoulette works on….Internet Explorer. I have only limited testing opportunities here, but on my Win7 / IE11 laptop, it works. 

If you have access to a computer with IE on it, you would do me a huge favor if you could open up IE, clear you browser cache, head over to maproulette.org and verify that MapRoulette behaves normally. If it doesn’t, please report your findings here or (even better) at https://github.com/osmlab/maproulette/issues/308
