Some OSM Notes are simply not long enough to be of use. We don't need an essay but a little more detail would help. 

One idea is to use a visual nudge to encourage people to write a bit more. I recently saw this when reviewing a hotel on booking.com. They provide a sort of progress bar which starts out at a low level and coloured red, and then increases as you type more until it is green and full. You also get a small bit of text encouraging you to write more, followed by "nearly there" etc.

Similar visual nudges exist when having to set a new password with a status bar in red for "Weak" passwords, orange for "OK" passwords and green for "Great" passwords.

What are you views on implementing similar for OSM Notes?
