BTW, here's the official blog post announcing this new feature:
http://blog.openstreetmap.org/2013/04/29/openstreetmap-opens-up-to-more-contributors-with-easy-add-a-note-feature/

And here's the wiki page explaining the feature:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Notes

If you're a map-app developer and you want your users to be able to add
their notes to the map, there's an API available:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/API_v0.6#Map_Notes_API

If you want to suggest features or report bugs on the Notes feature itself,
the official Github repository for the OSM website is the place to go:
https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website/
