in thread Feature: Auto hide. Change: show node vote counts to all, not just logged in users.

So how exactly are they not valuable?

Remember, we're talking about just "hiding" them in some way, from Anonymous Monk only. To logged-in users like Your Mother, they will appear as normal -- unless the monk takes some measures personally, e.g. via css, to alter that.

So in answer to your question, this would be essentially a new form of Moderation: Nodes which the community has deemed to be egregiously bad will be hidden from Anonymous Monk, and whoever else doesn't want to see them. More or less exactly how current moderation works with "approval": unapproved root posts are not visible to Anonymous Monks via the usual lists. (They're not hidden entirely; they can still be viewed directly, for example, or found via searching.)

I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

    Approval requires no popularity

    Hiding anything, esp questions/poetry/meditations, from anyone , because its unpopular, is a lethal idea for a website like perlmonks

      Approval requires no popularity

      Not all moderation mechanisms have to work the same way.

      Hiding anything ... because its unpopular, is a lethal idea ...

      I think we'll see otherwise. That's the essence of moderation.

      Also, (just for fun), don't forget NodeReaper's Compass. :-)

      “Lethal idea…” I would ask you to describe how it might be so, just for entertainment, but instead let’s open the yawning hypocrisy.

      This thread has 57 replies in it, so 58 total nodes. If one is not logged in, as per the proposal in question, only 31 of those nodes display due to what I already made a joke about—some notes below… So, this ridiculous, misplaced, ignorant concern of yours… Where is it for the 27 already hidden nodes here? Almost as many nodes are hidden as are shown in this thread. Now. Today. Not in some proposal. This has not been ”a lethal idea for a website like PerlMonks.” It’s risible that anyone would think it could be.

        Hypocrisy? No.

        Whats a few more zombies in the dungeon if it encourages your mother interorectogestion
