comment Community should not autodownvote “low quality” autoflags cleared by edits
It's been a year of looking into this. I understand that this likely doesn't have a very high priority, but could we get some form of update?

comment Remove links when a post is deleted by Community from spam/offensive flags
@Oded My point is, if the answer gets deleted by 10k delete votes before it can get enough spam flags (which almost always happens on PPCG), a mod still has to go and undelete the post and then spam nuke it manually? Or would it suffice to mark the spam flags as helpful after the deletion?

comment Remove links when a post is deleted by Community from spam/offensive flags
@Oded Is there a way to mark them as helpful other than a) by a mod, b) by accumulating enough of them? Because if not, then I'm not surprised I've never seen this feature in action, because if a mod needs to get involved, they'll likely just cast their own spam flag to nuke the post right away.

comment Remove links when a post is deleted by Community from spam/offensive flags
@Oded We tested this with 10k users. They saw the body before I nuked it manually by undeleting it and casting a spam flag myself. (And to a moderator, spam-deleted answers also look different than answer whose bodies weren't removed.)

comment Remove links when a post is deleted by Community from spam/offensive flags
To me this reads like "if the post had a spam flag, and then it gets deleted for whatever reason, the body gets removed". That is not what's happening. If users add delete votes to their spam flags, and the post happens to get deleted before enough spam flags are collected, the post only gets a regular deletion and the body is still visible. Is this what's supposed to happen or should I file a bug report? We tested it with this answer: codegolf.stackexchange.com/a/115562/8478

comment Improve election schedule with respect to the questionnaire
@meagar I don't think collecting questions during the nomination phase qualifies as "well beforehand". Not being able to post the answers until voting starts is way too late. Since not every candidate will be able to post the answers exactly when voting starts, some candidates can be at a disadvantage if they can only post theirs, say, 8 hours later, when lots of votes are already in. At the same time, voters who want to read the questionnaire answers can't actually vote until the answers are in, although those really belong with the nomination.

don't make it sound like questionnaire answers should go in the nomination post

comment Improve election schedule with respect to the questionnaire
@Catija Just to clarify, I also meant that the answers should stay on meta but go up at the same time. If I remember I'll clarify the question after the weekend.

comment What happens when a bountied answer is undeleted?
Bonus question: what happens to the little blue +X label indicating that the answer received a bounty?
