My website has files that users upload. I don’t want to verify all of them because there will be a lot but I do want to make sure ones that will be featured and promoted don’t have any viruses.
The general idea I have is a category where system can make topics automatically when a file is sent into the approval queue. Then users can do the verification process and when the decide whether or not it’s a good or bad file then can respond with something like approve, deny, or block. Then some sort of algorithm calculating the weight of their vote based off of trust, status, time to respond, etc.
My question is: Where can I find info about how to do something like this and also, does anybody see a flaw in this plan?
