Mark for Review Forum Feature hides posts after 5th time

Hi SDN and BPX Forum Aficionados,

The abuse button has another little known feature that has the potential to really improve the quality of forum content.

You mark a post for review by hitting the ! icon, select a category and please add a couple of words why and it gets marked for moderation.

If there are 4 other people that think a post doesn't belong to this forum, the thread automatically goes into hiding until a moderator has time to look at it and can take action accordingly.

It puts the community back into the driver seat. If enough people think a post doesn't belong it is gone. You have to be logged in to do this. See the [documentation|http://www.jivesoftware.com/jive/entry!default.jspa?categoryID=33&externalID=1321&fromSearchPage=true]

The threshold is set to 5 at the moment throughout all forums. Probably it will have to be fine tuned over time depending on how active a forum is.

This is going to be really interesting in 2008.

Happy New Year to all of you, Mark.

    Does the offender get "notice" that the question/thread as been hidden and "why"? - keeping the reproter anonymous, of course - would hate to start a sniping war

    I think there should be some more obvious education/advertising of what constitutes "abuse" so that contributors and askers are aware of what is acceptable - Of course I suppose that this can be missued too.

    PS - I had been looking for an explanation of the "report abuse" icon and "SEARCH" revels very little. Your topic: "Mark for Review Forum Feature" contains no word related to "report abuse"

      Hi Althea,

      Happy New Year to everyone.

      At the moment the poster doesn't get a message automatically. Once a moderator has looked at it and rejected the post, there is a possibility of an email being sent. We are looking into that.

      It is true, we have to explain a bit more about the functionality of the Report Abuse feature.

      Will do so soon, Mark.

    Mark - if a person asks a question related to say, performance that is in fact about enhancements, should that be marked for review?
