We've had problems in the past where we've needed a mechanism to deal with posts without actually deleting them. So, I've introduced the "Thumbs Down" icon found on some other forums. This allows the community to collapse a post if enough members vote on it. Forums use this as a self-moderating feature. Members with 500 posts or more get 1 vote and Members with 1000 posts or more get 2 votes counted to a post. A post needs 8 votes to get collapsed. It does not go to the Moderators and everything is handled automatically through the database. Users only can vote once per post. Once 8 votes are reached, the post gets automatically collapsed and will have a "This post has been collapsed by the community" message and a "Show" button. If you click the "Show" button it will let you still view the post. It is meant to be used for posts that habitually go off topic, posts that derail threads, etc. It is 100% anonymous.
This gives the Moderators and senior members the ability to deal with posts. We'll see how it works. Everything can be adjusted.
No more need for doobiously honoring anyone.
