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|!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.
