I wish every #OpenStreetMap contributor knew this:

"note" is for other contributors
(e.g. The name looks weird but it really is the true name of this POI; or This is a temporary bus stop)

"description" is for people using the map
(e.g. "This shop sells wedding decor, accessories and clothing")

Apparently, iD now correctly explains the difference. 👍


@bxl_forever I imagine I have messed this up in the past, the explanation in iD will be a good reminder for me.
