PokeBase Battle Subway Meta-PokeBase Q&A

Give experts the ability to collectively hide a post.

By that I mean, have an "expert's flag" sort of deal, where if 3 experts flag a post, it gets hidden.
Sometimes (some=most), we get hide-worthy posts while no editors/mods are on, and about 5-6 experts are on, and we just facepalm until it gets 5 flags (which takes for ever because people don't care enough to flag).

Why not just make expert flags count as 2-3 flags instead of 1? Posts get hidden when they reach 5 flags, so if it really is invalid, it'll be hidden much faster with the influence of experts speeding that up.

That might work better and be alot easier for you to implement, so yeah.

Yeah this actually makes sense, although it can be misused quite easily. I think that the user should be atleast *insert number* old before this counts :P
the user? you mean the expert?
I don't think experts would misuse this.
However, I'm biased as I am an expert.

Totally not a plan for Database complete domination.
Yeah
People who have just newly become expert will always be curious to see they're 'newfound powers' and will, at times, do all sorts of stunts. So that's why I suggest a time period after which this power should be granted.
I agree that Experts wouldn't misuse it.

Sempi, don't give the plan away, jeez. >.>
Not really.
Getting to expert takes time - in that period of time, most users will understand what they're supposed to do and what they aren't.
Also, it requires more than 1 expert to hide it, so even if one wanted to try out out their powers, without the backing of other more experienced experts they wouldn't be able to do jack.
Can me and Ayan for example be allowed to do this but only on meta? :3
Yup, if you're an RMT/Meta expert you could do this in your section.
But ofc it's all up to Pokemaster.

That would work.
^^^^^^
We should make it so that five experts come together to form Voltron and obliterate not only the answer, but the entire internet.

We should also start calling everybody Registered Users because we all registered.
I definitely agree with obliterating the internet. That sounds like fun.
In that quote, it says "Posts get hidden when they reach 5 posts" it should be flags, not posts.
