When looking at the 10k tools, I saw a little '1' next to the flags and thought I'd go poke at it to see what it was.
It was a very short answer, not more than a poorly formed sentence. But it vaguely tried to answer the question.
Elsequestion - Why is this question not low quality?
The "very low quality" flag is intended for questions that have severe formatting or content problems, that can't be solved by editing and/or commenting. If you can parse the question and understand what it says, it's not a "very low quality" one.
The question is, how should I respond to the automatic flag? As I see it, there are four options:
- Dispute it (its not low quality). By the above standards, thats probably true. However, when its a mid to low 70's on that quality meter... I really can't say in good conscious "yea, thats an ok answer"... because its not.
- Agree with the flag (that it is low quality). Add another flag to it. However, I like a consistent message on flagging, and that seems to run counter to what is established. People are confused enough with what flags get handled how.
- Custom mod flag "Bleh". I prefer "meh", but "Bleh" seems to get results.
- Just ignore it and when it shows up in the Low Quality Review Queue, recommend deletion there.
I went with #4. I am just wondering if one of the first three is a better way of handing the automatic low quality flags from the system in a consistent way with how they are handled from flagging from a question (since the mods don't know (I presume) which way a flag came from).
To given some context, the answer as a 10k sees it looks like this:
The auto flag is the slightly greyed out one. That is the one I'm wondering how to flag or deal with.
