There was a feature request to add reasons for deletion for questions, but this isn't that.
My feature request is as follows:
Add Reasons to delete in a dialog box when a user clicks on 'delete' for an answer. This would require every user who votes to delete (or moderators) to use one of the predetermined reasons:
- Not an answer
- Does not address the question
Once the answer has reached the threshold, the deletion reason would be displayed as well as a blurb that links to the FAQ on how to get it undeleted much like the close blurb already works.
This would be in line with allowing the community to police itself, and make sure arbitrary deletions aren't happening, as well as to give the person whose post was deleted an idea of why it was deleted.
The review queue can already do this, but it isn't tied in to the actual answer page. Clicking on 'delete' on an answer will bypass this (at least for moderators).
This feature request stems from my answer to a relevant question on this topic.
