what about formatting posts that are not serious or do not advance the topic differently so they can easily be skipped?


I like this. It's much better in terms of feedback on what people don't want to see in particular threads, but doesn't go all the way to deleting which causes pain and frustration.

Just have a button that says "Help hide this post" or similar then make it hidden by default when it hits the threshold, readers can bring it back with one click.

Good riddance.
For once, everybody shares one opinion. Feels good, too. Smiley

Reminds me of "mark as spam" on Youtube. That, too, was abused quite a bit though, especially while not fine-tuned.

I think an upvote system works best, somewhat like Facebook's "like" system.
You're right that it's better than what we just had. But what about no system? I doubt any of these are going anywhere. If there was a way to distinguish good from medium content for everybody, we'd be using it to fix the world before the Bitcoin forum. Any positive voting system just makes popular statements even more popular. They work against debates, but debates are what a forum like this is, at least partially, about, right?

Vandroiy, you're right on the money.

TBH, I'd be looking for another bitcoin forum if they started hiding posts that were deemed "unpopular".  That's not what a forum is about.

If you want 100% quality content, go look for a blog or article.  A forum is for discussions of all kinds, and of all intelligence levels.
