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

In OSM (at least the Netherlands) the map is flooded with notes.

Many of these unfortunately by anonymous and often senseless (too vague, repetitive etc.)

These too many notes discourage most users to have a look at the map for resolving notes.

It would be nice to extend the colouring scheme of notes: Anonymous without reactions: grey Anonymous with reactions: dark grey Non anonymous: red Non anonymous with reactions: orange resolved: green (as is)

Also the stay-alive-time of anonymous notes without answer could be limited to, say, four weeks?

Just my thoughts

Hi Martin, yes, interesting ideas. But do you have any question?

The correct place for this is on the osm-website github repository. This is not really a question, so is not suitable for this Q&A site.
