Years ago I started using WhoDidIt to patrol my area of interest as part
of my gardening routine, but it was not what it was designed for: great
for visualizing where activity occurs but clunky for patrolling. OSMCHA
bridged that gap - it gives me real-time monitoring with integrated
tooling to detect bad changesets and engage (especially new mappers) with
changesets comments (though whether they respond is another matter)...
Catching them early before problems accrue beats having to deal with
accumulated errors later.
