    You probably see that you now have a "inappropriate" link. This is something that I designed that allows the users to make a determination of what is exceptable and what is not. By clicking on "inappropriate" you are essentially giving it a negative rating. Once the threshold of negative ratings is reached, the post is moved into moderation for a mod to review.

    Members are only given 3 uses of the "inappropriate" button per day to prevent abuse.

    Some members may have seen their post removed and think it was because of a mod when in reality the community has voted it off.

    The ratio is currently 6 dislikes to be removed. Every "like" will cancel out a dislike. You could have 100 dislikes but as long as you had 95 likes, the post will remain.

    So a post I made the other day got 10 likes, but is 14 inappropriates away from deletion, so that means it got 2 inappropriates?

    Just trying to get the maths right.

    Now I understand. That is a good concept. Ramstalk could have cleaned up a long time ago if they implemented this......thing is, there would be a zero post count due to everyone's posts being deleted.

    Nah, this would never work on Ram Stalk. Too many sockpuppets there.

    Here, I presume Phx's software warns him of multiple accounts coming from the same IP address (even though that in and of itself doesn't mean sockpuppets.)

    A. You can only use an "inappropriate" vote 1 time on a post
    B. You are only given three a day
    C. You need to have at least 100 posts to even use the feature.

    How many posts does it take for us to be able to mark your posts as Inappropriate Phx?

    (I was hoping to find the tab on the above post so I could hit it just for fun.)

    Right, but I was saying if someone had 4 different accounts, they could potentially delete a post by themselves.

    That's a problem on Ram Stalk. I'm sure there's safeguards against it here.

    Never tried it before but apparently you can be a real fence walker and both like a post and mark it as inappropriate. Thanks for being the guinea pig. :cool:
