Throwing my two cents,

Recently Portugal has been receiving a lot of new members and the vast
majority of them focus on adding paths and parks around a small area.

There has been an increase of bad mapping happening, see [1], [2], [3], [4]
to name a few.

I blame those Pokemon Go users that suggest you edit OSM to increase spawn
chances. It disregards the community and undermines the map data quality.

[1] - https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/461465683 (multiple over-layered
ways)
[2] - https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/461227943 (nonexistent footways
mapped)
[3] - https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/461228607 (unconnected ways)
[4] - https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/461433845 (a bit of everything
wrong)
