Good question and I have since figured out how to access notes I have
touched/resolved to demonstrate my point. My treatment of notes is
probably the problem. :)
I see this note  as being a legitimate use case for them in that there
used to be a roundabout there and not the intersection has been
reconfigured (ie. OSM is "in error")
I see this note  as being an illegitimate use case for them. (ie. OSM
is NOT "in error" rather OSM is "missing" this data). You can see how I
have tried to encourage the user to engage with OSM.
Note  is similar to Note  but my treatment has been to resolve with
the comment I have made (At the detriment of a future OSM editor?). This
is one of my earlier note exercises.
I think the notes are great and I've used them in areas where I have passed
through and noted obvious errors for local mappers. With the 4sq channel
though I'm wondering if my logic and subsequent action to resolve is too
literal and I should leave Notes of Type  /  in place. Is this the
intent of Notes moving forward?
