I know this is very frustrating.
An idea would be to give a global view of the Europe as a default zoom. 
But with such a low zoom, newcomers could not see any bugs and would be

That's a very good idea. I'll work on it.

In the ToDo-list.

Let's see what will be the uses before adding constrains :-)

So, as a local mapper, it is very grateful to make them disappear (by 
correcting them of course) :-)

Thanks for the idea, I made it.
The closed bugs can't be modified and they disappear after a week (to be 
sure that Mapnick is refreshed).
