Watching and trusting users on OSMCha

Posted by wille on 20 December 2018 in English (English)

Hello! The year is at the end, but we are right in time to share some updates in OSMCha. We have some new features that will make us save time when reviewing changesets and prioritizes the users whose changesets need more attention.

Now we can maintain a list of users that we trust and another of users that we want to be watching and reviewing their changesets.

You can add and remove a user to your trusted users or watchlist from inside the user panel tab on the changeset page.

We have a new user menu that allows us to access and manage our account settings, the saved filters, the trusted users, and the watchlist.

Finally, on the filters page, there are new options to hide the trusted users from the filter results or to see only changesets created by users that are on your watchlist.

All these operations can be made by our API too, check our documentation for more information.

I hope it will make the process of reviewing changesets more efficient. Let us know about the ideas and features you want from OSMCha by opening an issue or talking with us on our mailing list. Have a great 2019!
