RFC: Hide Very Bad Answers From Visitorsby jdporter (Chancellor)
|on Jul 24, 2018 at 21:10 UTC||Need Help??|
Following on from previous discussion on this topic...
In the eye of the public (that is, not-logged-in visitors), the apparent quality of the site can be significantly dragged down by answers (or other replies) which are esteemed by the voting population to be notoriously poor.
Within threaded views of discussions, hide from Anonymous Monk any replies with a sufficiently low negative reputation.
In the threaded view of a post within a section such as SoPW, and within the threaded outlines displayed by RAT, any reply with a reputation below a given threshold will not be displayed. (This has the effect of hiding the entire sub-thread rooted at such reply as well.) This feature would only affect Anonymous Monk. Proposed threshold: -7.
This would not affect any node being viewed "directly", only replies under it -- regardless of that node's type or reputation. It also would not affect root posts being shown in RAT.
Other thoughts on this idea? Alternative proposals?
See my update below.
I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
