Hello, I’m gamarlamar5 from an other forum called the blockheads, I’m new here so I believe this is the right category to create an topic on, so back to what I’m talking about:
After looking at an Flagged post with an link that lead to a fake virus ad.
I hadded an Idea, here it is
When an post is flagged and if it contains a link with it, the link is still clickable which I may not like,
Can ya add something that removes a link from a reported post if possible
So it’s like if a post had just been reported and if it contains a link, then that link is automatically removed until the post is review, and chosen to be shown or not shown, and if the reported post is so seriously dangerous and threatening then the “show hidden text” would be disabled to prevent looking at the post
Or the post can be deleted( recommended )
@codinghorror he is saying links in flagged posts should not be clickable right noe they are matter of fact some people flagged a post so people wouldnt get a virus from a link but many people still followed the link
@codinghorror you still dont get it if any person flags a post a person of any trust evel the link should dissapear except for people with the leader rank so the link cannot be clicked at all or viewed unless they are leader or some semi-leaders that are chosen
That would be an amazing tool for mischief and griefing others – just flag constantly to suppress their links. There is a reason we require 3 flags from 3 people, or a single spam flag from a trust level 3 user. Think this through.
It is possible for the owner to adjust the site settings so only a single flag is required, if the site owner desires this behavior. So I suggest you take it up with the site owner, not us.
Respectfully, I believe you misunderstand. A person can still click on the link after it is hidden. Changing how many flags required to hide a post won’t help if they can still click the link to a bad website.
He is suggesting that when a post is flagged, any link in the post becomes unclickable.
Maybe a fair compromise between not removing good links from good members and removing dangerous links could be some kind of “at your own risk” modal? Or maybe simply adding something like a more explicit “view at own risk” could be added the the “this post” copy, though to me that seems to be already implied.
