The tag review_requested=yes can be set on changeset to indicate that the mapper would like someone to look over their changes. iD and JOSM make this a checkbox while uploading a change. It should not be used on OSM objects.

iD has it with description "I would like someone to review my edits."

Responding to review requests

If you wish to help beginners, please respond to review requests.

There are several means to search for review requested edits, for example:

  • OSMCha: Log in with your OSM account, and create a filter. Choose your desired area and at Show flagged choose yes, and at Reason for flagging select Review requested.
  • OSM Suspicious: Set Changeset tags to review_requested and Time to last 96 hours. You can also limit the area to a certain country.

To send feedback to the user, please use the Changeset Discussions feature, so that other reviewers can also view the status. Even a "This looks OK" is helpful!
