Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I just used the iD-editor for the first time and was quite confused by all the buttons. I tried hovering my mouse over them but did not get any tooltips. Eventually I just tried clicking on the left pointing U-turn-arrow only to have all my information deleted. I still don't know if it is a reset or undo button.

I could not find any way to give feedback, a bug tracker or way to contact a developer so I am left to ask this as a question here.

I see tooltips on every last button in iD when I hover over them. The one on the "Undo" button which you clicked isn't entirely clear and should probably have the word "Undo" added to it somewhere. Other than that they seem to be pretty decent.

Also, did you do the "Walkthrough" when it first fired up? This feature explains how to use the basic controls very well. You can start it at any time from the help menu.

And now I have created a ticket about the undo/redo tooltips not being clear: https://github.com/systemed/iD/issues/1670
