Summary: Wiki curators would 'rather see no edit summary at all than a false one'. The central problem seems to be that most people are lazy and when they are beginners are now stimulated to pick between 3 simple things or other (aka 'complexity'). Since there is something to pick from, people 'just click' and so we have a lot of 'false' edit summaries, which disturbs the review process.
I'd like to suggest that the preloaded edit summaries be removed or de-emphasized. I'm talking about the screen that comes up on the app after you have made an edit, but before saving, that asks "How did you improve this article?", with four options: Fixed typo, Fixed grammar, Added links, and Other. Since this feature was added, the "Fixed typo" edit summary has predictably become very popular - it is the first and most prominent option, and it's not obvious that skipping the edit summary is possible - but almost never accurate. As a patroller, I would rather see no edit summary at all than a false one; false edit summaries, until recently, usually indicated to me that a user was purposefully trying to evade detection. --[[User:Bongwarrior|Bongwarrior]] ([[User talk:Bongwarrior|talk]]) 09:35, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
