The bug icons in Potlatch 2 are a distraction when editing
|Reported by:||Wynndale||Owned by:||potlatch-dev@…|
The bug icons in Potlatch 2 have serious drawbacks.
The reports are submitted though a semi-private channel, not the well-known OpenStreetBugs mechanism.
Many of the messages are either meaningless (Enter note here...) or one point is not good enough context (The advised route is obviously not the optimal route).
Canned messages may be the same when truncated (The advise...).
Many icons disconcertingly coincide with roads.
I would like to turn these messages off and I believe new users will be less intimidated without them.
