Also, they'll get an e-mail with their cryptic message and a permalink. The only thing they'll be missing is their track.
However, it would be a nice feature if that track was visible when clicking on that link, even after the UR is closed.

If I'm leaving a note, I always put "txemt" that way people know either to stay away from it, or that I'm directing them to something very specific. Two nights ago, I put a UR down that said "delete rest area--txemt" so if anyone saw it, they'd know to delete the rest area, but 2 weeks ago, I put down "investigate--txemt" meaning that I knew something was up, but couldn't explain it, so when anyone saw the UR, they'd leave it for me, and when I saw it, it would trigger my memory as to why I made such UR.

While I understand your eagerness to edit the map, you are actually hindering the process by deleting my notes. I ask kindly that you refrain from deleting my notes on the editor. Thank you, Davipt.

Maybe the water layer didn't include the ocean. Better go add it!

My translation in PT is something like "at the roundabout exit to the left" with the emphasis on the "exit". But yes sometimes people will get confused.
It _is_ worse, it _is_ "turn left" in our translation (and I suspect in many other as well). And wazers do complain, for years - desperately. And I can hardly think of an idiom, which would match both a numbered exit and a left/right drive through
