PokeBase Battle Subway Meta-PokeBase Q&A

Just clearing something up

0 votes

To make sure I'm not hiding posts that just need to be down-voted to death.

RMT posts with overall crappy advice " Use Blizzard over Ice Beam on Manaphy, and on Ho-oh use Sky Attack instead of Brave Bird. "

Us editors are allowed to hide, correct? I know we're allowed to hide crappy moveset Q's, but I wasn't 100% sure about RMT posts. If Pokemaster or other mods/editors who know first hand that we are allowed / not allowed to could clear that up, that'd be awesome.

Yeah, we can hide bad answers such as as you have given. I just choose to be selective about it, hiding them only on good teams. For the bad teams of the lowly users, I just let whoever answer with whatever so we don't have to waste our time.

The best thing to do is just downvote and move on. Once an answer has a couple downvotes there is no need to downvote it any more, it's clear that the answer is bad or simply incorrect.

But it's fine to hide them if they are really bad.

Okay! That's pretty much what I've been doing then. Just making sure. Thanks a lot Pokemaster!
