Is there some good way to obtain id of latest created note?
Or to check whether specific note is deleted or not yet existing? Currently both return
Request failed: 404 - Not Found (this used to be different, not anymore)
For example, https://www.openstreetmap.org/note/3881941 existed but was hidden/deleted.
https://www.openstreetmap.org/note/3881941000 is not yet existing
Note: 3881955 | OpenStreetMap exists and is visible
Why it is useful: I have script that watches created notes, detects obvious vandalism notes and closes them. I run it when some anonymous note vandal becomes active. I wanted to reenable it and discovered that it now fails as response for not-yet-existing and used-to-be-existing notes is now the same.
