Why are we able to flag our own posts?


#1

I understand a community system of peer-driven flagging, but why are we given the option to flag our own posts when we could just delete them?


#2

Because making us not able to flag our own posts would require extra programming, and it would be a near-useless feature so it’s just not worth it.

That’s pretty much exactly what I figured too.

Basically…an apt way to put it, nicely put Crotale, I personally only flagged once, (myself) to be sure I got the mods attention for one of my threads to be closed. Other than that…yea…

This topic is now closed. New replies are no longer allowed.

If it’s really a concern, you can take it to the Discourse forums directly. We just use the system here, not create it.
