As a trusted user, I can vote to delete answers that have a score of -1 or lower. Typically, the answers I find myself wanting to vote to delete come from new answers to old questions. These answers are new and thus usually have a score of 0.
I was thinking it would be helpful to the moderators if other 20k users (who are presumably working from the same list of answers) voted to delete such answers ourselves. (with appropriate comments added to the answer) But in order to vote to delete I would have to first downvote the answer. However, I'm not sure if this is something I should be doing.
- Simply flag the answer
- Downvote the answer and vote to delete
- Downvote the answer, vote to delete, and then undo my downvote
Historically of course I would just choose the first option. I would like to know if any one (or a combination of) these options is ideal.
In sum: as a 20k user, what should I be doing with these sorts of answers?
