     94 * A login has the following advantages:
     95  * Mail is sent for changes in your own bug tracker tickets. This is possible by entering an e-mail as a username in the tickets too, but then be aware that the address is openly visible and you are unable to change that later.
     96  * Page settings are remembered (e.g. input field size and a lot of other stuff).
     97 * Logins which have no e-mail address or which have not been used at least once are automatically deleted.
     98 * Logins to edit the OpenStreetMap database are separate from the logins on this server.
     99 * Copyright (CC-BY-SA and LGPL since April 2014) of this site is stated in the footer.
