I have an idea for a new multi-part feature.
A flag that one would raise on questions which appear to be soliciting work from the community.
Questions flagged as such would enter a new review queue. This new review queue would be available to users after reaching a certain amount of rep. In this queue, when a certain amount of approvals are reached, which in my opinion should be more than the standard close amount, the question is closed as a
After the question is closed, all rep belonging to that question is reverted.
The purpose of this feature would be to remove "help-vampires", "solicitors", "do-my-work-for-me" or "do-my-homework-for-me" questions from SO. This would be done in two ways;
By directly removing these questions, the incentive is removed to ask them.
By removing the rep rewarded, the incentive to answer them is removed.
Without incentive, these questions will be at a minimum.
The goal is to help keep SO a place for constructive questions, where a community of people are engaged in researching their own problems and helping others, rather than a place to ask for answers to problems that probably wont ever benefit others, or are direct assignments to the person asking the question.
note: the name Solicitation is just a thought, feel free to suggest something better, originally I was thinking of Work-Request
