I did try and discuss this sort of problem with the author over at 
https://github.com/westnordost/StreetComplete/issues/351 - specifically 
to say that someone running StreetComplete should be allowed to say that 
"everything is OK in OSM as it currently is, no need to edit the data or 
add a note".  Unfortunately communication failed to occur, and the 
author of this app is committed to adding useless notes to OSM.

I don't doubt that the author's heart is in the right place and that 
they, and the app's users, are genuinely attempting to improve the 
quality of OSM data, but unfortunately their actions together will 
dilute the "useful" notes in an area.  Just look at the (lack of) 
quality of 
for examples.

Best Regards,
