I am in a dilemma:
There is one user who contributes (very) good edit suggestion but the comments are almost always the same: improved formatting, even if he did a lot more.
- I do want to get that user to formulate more meaningful comments (to make it easier for reviewers and to provide a useful edit history)
- I flagged one of those edited posts for moderator intervention but was told
if users' edit summaries can use improvement, you can let users know yourself that they may wish to use better edit summaries - it's not something that we really need to do anything for as mods if it's just a 'poor quality edit summary' thing.
- I do not want to reject those good edits just because of bad comments (I did it once with a polite request but apparently without success)
- I already posted a comment on a post edited by him - not sure if that gets to his inbox, though.
So: provided I am not just being silly in this regard (please tell me if you think I am): How can we educate editors to provide meaningful comments?
I maintain: This question by Eliah Kagan is mainly about what action (approve/reject) to take. I already know that I don't want to reject good edits. I am asking here about a way to contact/educate the contributor. So this is IMO not a duplicate.
I intentionally left out names, because I think this issue is more about a general "problem" than about single personalities.
