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

I have seen there are a few tools for detecting errors like misspelt tags, unclosed areas, wrong predictive text, etc.. on the map eg Keepright Are there any that will just show any mistakes that you yourself have made? ie filter by user.

I always look at the map after editing, but sometimes changes can take an hour or more to show up. I feel the best person to correct my mistakes could be me as I know what I intended to do, rather than leave the errors for someone else to try and second guess what I was trying to do.

Wow! I did not know about that and it shows that there are a large number of things in error that I was the last to touch. Got some clean up work to do. . . Thanks!

Thanks this is great (though I seem to have inherited many previous editors "mistakes"). I have plenty to check through and have found some of my mistakes from 2 years ago.
