Flags are for illegal posts.

Pokebase
- Asking a question that already has been asked. (What is a good moveset for Mew?)
- Asking a purely opinion question. (Is Mew the best Pokemon ever?)
- Asking plainly dumb questions. (Is Mew a Pokemon?)
- Answering incorrectly. (Is Mew a Pokemon? No, it isn't.)
- Answering offensively. (Is Mew the best Pokemon ever? No, it looks like a (insert bad word). It is the worst (insert bad word)in the world.)

Meta
- Asking a plainly dumb question. (Is the Pokemon DB a site?)
- Being offensive. (I hate the (insert bad word) user Mew. He is a (insert bad word). He is a piece of (insert bad word).)
- You get voted down once, you ask Pokemaster. (Pokemaster, I got voted down once. Can we ban the user that did?)
- Answering offensively (How old is this site? How would I (insert bad word) know?)
- Answering incorrectly (Who made this site? Well, that would be me, Mew!)

Battle Subway
- Asking moveset questions. (What is a good moveset for my Blissey?)
- Giving incomplete information about your team. (Okay, my team is: Magikarp, Feebas, Unown, Wynaut, Wobbuffet, and Magikarp. Any suggestions?)
- Answering with little suggestions. (http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/rmt/2363/suggestions-for-my-random-lower-tier-team-pokemon-that-like Change Blastoise's Ability to Rain Dish.)
- Answering incorrectly. (http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/rmt/2363/suggestions-for-my-random-lower-tier-team-pokemon-that-like Give Blastoise Draco Meteor.)
- Answering with unuseful information. (http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/rmt/2363/suggestions-for-my-random-lower-tier-team-pokemon-that-like Did you know Blastoise has Torrent?)
- Answering with distasteful information. (http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/rmt/2363/suggestions-for-my-random-lower-tier-team-pokemon-that-like Blastoise sucks.)

I guess that's all. If an Expert/Editor/Moderator/Pokemaster see something I forgot, feel free to edit.

Good, except for "Answering incorrectly" which is what down voting is for
I have seen users flag incorrect answers.
Thanks! Now I know what flags are for.
