Short answer: nope. You will probably never see a "flag the DV" type of thing for a number of reasons. All votes up or down, are completely anonymous. So it is not as if a mod could do anything to a user who casts a "bad" DVs. Votes are very subjective; and most of the time* there is no way to say definitively that a vote was "bad". What may be helpful ...

Like I wrote in my comment: @Hendriks3D while I sure understand the frustration of not getting an answer accepted (where the OP comments saying how you helped them), down voting the question out of spite is just not right. That kind of voting is wrong, period. On the DV Privilege page is says when to down vote: When should I vote down? Use your downvotes ...

If an answer has been posted in the comment sections but the person didn't post it as an answer, you can go ahead and post it as an answer and mark it as answered afterwards. Common "courtesy" is to wait a little bit (I'd say at least one day, but that is subjective) before doing so because some people prefer taking their time before posting a ...

We could use some API queries to get real numbers on those questions, rather than judging the state-of-affairs by how things appear to us. (prone to confirmation bias) I can only speak for my own reasons to vote: The topic interest me, and the post was informative I know enough about a topic to feel my vote is a good indicator for other users. Reasons ...

I reviewed both questions and couldn't find anything bad. I remember that I was also confused during the first hours with Blender on how the 3D cursor works. Answers like that are useful for beginners especially when they are listed at the first place of a google search. The 2nd one requires basic python knowledge plus Blender API which can't be taken for ...

"Simple" questions are not bad at all. From a blender user's perspective having a question here makes it easy to find the answer quickly, high google ranking and such. Everybody needs to learn at some point, and this site is and can be a good start. From a site user's perspective, simple questions are great. They get answered quickly, which helps the ...

As long as such questions are not duplicates, I think it's to everyone's benefit to have them answered here, because once they are, we probably won't have to answer them ever again (they are likely to be the top search result).

Agree in general that simple questions are OK, But with Python API questions, there is potential for a lot of duplication. The API has 1000's of members, and we have 1500+ operators. If we accept questions like: "How do I change the stamp color" The answer is almost the same as... "How do I change the stamp font size" In these cases we can assume the ...

I wonder if adding something more opinion based could help, some sort of level of quality enabled only when you vote. Level 1 : this answers the question Level 2 : Good answer Level 3 : Good, intersting, informative, sexy : I like it! Level 4 : AWESOME!!! The ability to easily give a bit of personal opinion could encourage voting. It could also be some ...
