This is not my idea but I figured it may get better attention here :)
[*]Make it so if enough members report a specific thread/post, that item becomes invisible until we investigate
This is open to abuse by members reporting it on purpose and asking others to do the same. Bad idea. Also, people can reg new accounts and report a post easily..-1
I don't see the problem if people report a thread for the sake of getting it hidden, they'll just get themselves banned. Plus it's not like once it's hidden, it can't be unhidden.It's also not hard to limit to members with 100 posts or whatnot.
I think it has potential.. But moreso as a mod.. Reason being is that we don't track the number of reports.. Adding that would add resource usage. Additional queries.. But.. then again, probably only when reporting..Don't know.. I can see the usefulness for some people, but feels more like a good idea for a mod to me.. Just my thoughts.
I quite like the idea but agree that it has some flaws.
