OpenStreetBugs was a database and website [1] for marking errors in the OpenStreetMap data. It is now deprecated as its functionality has been replaced by Notes, a core feature of OpenStreetMap.org.

Users of OpenStreetBugs could leave a short message on the map if something was missing or obviously wrong, like "oneway in wrong direction" or "bridge or level_crossing?". More information is available in the past revisions of this page.
