The fixme=* tag is often used to give other mappers an indication that something needs more research (or it is a “note to self”) .
All too often it stays at that point and no one ever cares any more about such a request for improvement. I found out that roughly more than half of the fixme’s is at least 2 years old.
I wrote a simple overpass query with some stylesheets attached which shows the text of the fixme immediately on the map.

Is there something you can fix? Please do so and remove the “fixme”
For the centre of London, this is the result:
The overpass query searches for nodes with a fixme=, but you can easily change it to finding ways instead.
And if you want to locate all note= tagging, simply replace “fixme” with “note” in the script.
