[Talk-us] Anyone feel like helping another mapper in New York?

Over the last couple of months there have been edits by a new mapper in 
New York who seems to like changing things but hasn't quite got the hang 
of what they're doing yet.  Some of the smaller edits seem plausible, 
but they seem to be doing a lot of "node drags and merges" which results 
in some very non-grid-pattern street layouts.  Comments can be seen at 
http://resultmaps.neis-one.org/osm-discussion-comments?uid=8356718 .  
I've sent them a couple of "messages that they have to read before 
continuing to edit" as DWG block messages so they'll definitely have 
seen that there are problems, but they haven't been able to translate 
that into them not making the same mistakes again.

It's probably just a schoolkid and It's not necessarily outright 
vandalism (it has none of the messages to teachers or priapic shapes 
that schoolkid vandalism often contains).

My comments haven't worked; maybe someone else could have a go? I'd be 
grateful for any suggestions where to go from here...

Best Regards,

Andy (from the DWG)
