And we have no statistics or functionality to mark a changeser as revieed so nobody knows how many reviews are done and how many falls through the cracks. We could make a tool that lists all changesets with a review request and no comments.

I also tested it and never heard anything. I dislike it because it gives a new user the impression we review and have a good follow up process which we generally don't (in Sweden).

I have done a lot of reviews for new swedish edits during some time. It was very rewarding to contact new mappers in the area and offer them a helping hand actually.

I found the edits via thia external tool: http://resultmaps.neis-one.org/osm-suspicious#0/7/21
I'm  not recommending we use it though and I'm hesitant to sharing it here because it is not free software. If some of you know the author please contact him and ask him to release the source.
