I tested the challenge an discovered normal fault to be corrected, but I discovered as well mapping disasters! I started to collect these disaters here:

That user just seems to be doodling. Presumably they got dragged into a geography class that they didn't want to attend, and just drew lots of triangles. What I'd suggest in these cases is firstly to comment in a friendly way on the changeset, so that a changeset discussion comment search like will find something. It also helps if you can try and track down the institution or project that is responsible for the problem. In this case #FCCU isn't very helpful, but a search for it at OsmCha does find some others, and some of those do have HOT project numbers (in this case 2307). A search for that in the HOT tasking manager gets , and on that page is a link to the HOT profile of the person who created the task, and on that page is a link to an OSM profile.

That's the best place to start asking questions about mapping quality - how was the request given to these new users? What is FCCU and who's the contact there? --SomeoneElse (talk) 15:42, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
