<h3>Problem</h3>
<p>New visitors (new IP/no user account/first visit) usually come to the site and look for recognizable features like their own house or city downtown.</p>
<p>When they zoom in on that POI and they don't see it, they'll probably think lowly of the site and immedeatly leave.</p>
<h4>Example</h4>
<p><a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/22477298/107287617-d2553380-6a27-11eb-8967-5cd037704f11.png"><img src="https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/22477298/107287617-d2553380-6a27-11eb-8967-5cd037704f11.png" alt="Screenshot 2021-02-08 at 2 15 20 PM" style="max-width:100%;"></a><br>
<em>From <a href="https://medium.com/s/story/how-i-fully-quit-google-and-you-can-too-4c2f3f85793a" rel="nofollow">How I Fully Quit Google (And You Can Too)</a></em></p>
<p>As a dedicated OSM contributor, I would have told the author that they should have added their house! (I'm assuming they didn't, like most people wouldn't)</p>
<p>This example, that is most likely taken by the average internet goers who come across this site, sparked my idea for this solution.</p>
<h3>Solution</h3>
<p>What should happen instead, is when new visitors zoom in to zoom level 17 or greater, after 3 seconds or so, a prompt fades in that looks like this:<br>
<a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/22477298/107287058-07ad5180-6a27-11eb-862b-55ebec9b3afd.png"><img src="https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/22477298/107287058-07ad5180-6a27-11eb-862b-55ebec9b3afd.png" alt="image" style="max-width:100%;"></a><br>
(Rough design, this could look a lot better)</p>
<p>Users would then recognize the edit button and might be inspired to add their own house or other POI that is missing.</p>
<p>This could possibly increase user contributions greatly!</p>
<p>Yes, they are directed next to the login page and they might leave due to their laziness in having to create an account; but at least they were 1 step closer to actually editing and now aware that anyone can contribute!</p>
