The obvious thing now is that there are many cases when we see "I have same issue! from users with 1 rep. in question. Usually, it's the user who has googled for their problem and found an answer on Stack Overflow, but when trying copy+paste something went wrong. What I often is that this user comes and registers on SO, then adds such "answer" to that question.
What can be done?
Currently, good question could be protected by users with 15k rep to avoid such situation. But still we have many answers flagged as "not an answer" and we have to deal with this. That's because not all questions should be protected (or those which should be protected - were not protected yet).
I propose that:
- Users who have no posts on SO yet are prohibited from answering questions that are x days old (let's say 7 days) and have an accepted answer.
Why only for questions with accepted answer? Because, certainly, OP already accepted solution - and it is working at least - thus, it won't be bad for OP who already got his answer. While I understand that such restriction potentially may cause loosing of great answers from new users, I think that in common case this will save lots of flags and, therefore, time for reviewing it.
