[Talk-GB] Hampshire: Volunteers needed for testing "FixMyPaths", a rights of way problem reporting app

I encountered a tree blocking[1] the byway along Stancomb Broad Lane back on the 1st July this year.

Which I thought about reporting but wasn't bothered / didn't know how - I guessed a local person would do it in time.

Now, I'm not sure if it was actually on  'Bighton 7' or on the track further along to the East as indicated by Freemap.

Some where along it anyway[2]

[1] Only passable by an able bodied pedestrian between branches - i.e. good thing I didn't have my MTB that day!

What no permalink option on the map?

What does the search actually search?

Is there a list of open ROW problems?

How many are there (i.e. display this somewhere)

I think I came across one by chance - but can't find it again - it just said 'broken' on a pin popup

Might be worth saying reported issues are shown as 'pins' on the maps if that is the case.

Might be worth moving all/some of the gumpf/disclaimer/key from the top of the map to blue panel on the left - since this panel has got a lot of wasted space.
