> I should note that this was (one of) the original use-cases for OWL. Unfortunately, no version of OWL ever got to the point of deployment, although it is a service that many people would be interested in. 

Most people subscribe to [WhoDidIt](https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Quality_assurance#WhoDidIt) notifications these days.

Monitoring changes for _all_ changed objects is an overkill and will quickly get out of hand. And the load on the website would be quite high. Many mappers learn to let their contributions go and not burden themselves with guarding every change.
