A post popped up in my low quality postbox today, which was, I am not entirely sure but feels like was, flagged. I get the flagger's point. But the issue was that the answer posted to the question was a random paragraph taken from I don't know where and pasted in there. I believe the answerer was testing the site. Great!
I have personally seen people posting a comment telling such people exactly the words I have written in the last two sentences of the previous paragraph. Well it is one approach. But wouldn't it be more handy if we had an option to delete the answerer's post when it has been flagged by one or more people.
What happens is when we click the
delete button as a recommended action while reviewing the task, the following dialog box appears on the screen.
The problem here is, there is no option stating something like Not an answer - "This is no answer at all. You were trying to test the website for its features and functionalities, which you now have. Congratulations! Post your first question, or answer an existing one (correctly this time)."
Now, I don't know exactly how the delete messages appear to the authors, since I never had my post deleted by someone else. But I am assuming the messages written inside the double quotes are what appears on their screen. Hence my suggestion would likely be a handy addition other than having to choose other not-so-fitting options, or worse, the first one.
I don't know if this issue is already addressed or not, because I didn't get something related when I typed in certain keywords. I hope someone notices this.
