Last week in another thread, @Factotum and I both mentioned that the “Flag Post” description should be changed to allow providing feedback besides spam or troll behavior. And it got me thinking that it would be nice if I could suggest featuring a conversation that was over-the-top amazing. Especially if it’s a long-form conversation starter where someone obviously spent hours to put it together. Or a conversation starter that expands the interests of the group—like who knew that users here were interested in the ins and outs of learning a foreign language?
As the volume of new conversations increases, the likelihood of a FEATURED-worthy conversation going unnoticed will increase. For lack of a better term, I would characterize this solution approach as “group moderation.”
