"Post hidden due to community flagging"


(Akash Sharma) #1

On my discourse site whenever someone posts a response their post is automatically flagged. How can I stop that?

AFAIK that message is used only for posts that are Flagged, not by any of the automated anti-SPAM measures.

If someone is abusing the Flag system it may be time to consider taking some sort of action to have them stop doing it or at least slow down with their using it.

A double edged sword. You don’t really want to have then not Flag when appropriate, but if they are over doing it that could get to be a problem

Nobody is flagging the comment, my site only has 2 users, me and my friend and we are testing it out and when my friend comments (regular account) his post is automatically flagged

When you say “regular account” do you mean Trust Level 3 - Regular?

Are both of you using the same IP?
If he is TL0 - New - It could be getting Fagged as a “sock puppet”

I don’t recall the message being “community” flagging - I thought it said “system” - but it was a long time ago and I very well could be wrong about that
