Responding to review requests

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

To search review requested edits, one of the possible tools is OSMCha. Log in with your OSM account, and create a filter. Choose your desired area and at Show flagged choose yes, and select Reason for flagging = Review requested.

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!
