I found out for my self that duplicate notes are easy to create on
Saturday. I was in Bridgnorth for a few beers with my mate, and before
that had had a walk around doing some mapping.

I managed to create 4 notes instead of one due to the interface.
Initially I had wanted to add a category to a building, in this case a
theatre. Maps.me didn't allow that so I added a note.

Touching the tick had apparently no effect (no animation or screen
change), so I assumed it hadn't registered and tried again. It was only
when I looked at the IRC channel and saw the 4 notes I realised what I
had done.
