Community Flags in addition to FamilySearch/Moderator flags
Disclaimer: I have not researched all the flag definitions or how they are currently to be used.
It would be nice to have additional Community flags that might be different than Moderator flags.
Currently flag options are:
Spam, Abuse, Report
Spam (as far as I am aware): blatant advertising or redirecting to non-related sources/topic. How to handle Discussion forks is more nuanced and beyond moderator separation has no 'Community' solution - except perhaps private mailing the party...
Abuse: redirecting to inappropriate sources or complaint about a user's response including inappropriate 'verbiage'
Report: No clue here - what are we reporting?
Request: There is a difference - as evident in the current Community discussion about recent Search> Records changes - between constructive and non-constructive feedback. Stating 'Search is ____! Change it back!' is a request that does nothing constructive to the current Search - which all Community members must work in/build upon. By implication it does request a different interface and for Search Results to revert to previous behavior - but does nothing constructive per se - here is my example of a constructive suggestion that does exactly this. Having the option to flag a post constructive or not and remove non-constructive posts could be advantageous to those pursuing a constructive approach. Of course this would bring up complaints about 'not being heard' - which could simply be addressed by referring them to a constructive approach.
Question: Is it proper therefore to Report posts that are not constructive?
I hope this idea is constructive.
