 No, there is no way to see the score, nor will there be. It's not a game
 where you try and hover just under your limit.

 The aim is that any ordinary mapper should not be affected by this at all
 - only people in the top 1% or less should be affected and they are
 normally trying to scrape data rather than actually edit.

 Occasionally people that are editing do get affected, normally when they
 work their way along a linear feature over a long distance rather than
 editing a single area. We are actively seeking solutions for that, such as
 relaxing the limits for logged in users.

 Sending a message is not possible because we don't know who the user is as
 map requests are not authenticated. Once they are (optionally) we will
 most likely relax the limits for logged in users rather than send them
