in thread Give Maintainer Permissions to delete their own nodes?

Ozymandias:
This is exactly what I had in mind. I think that probably the best way to handle allowing deletion of nodes would be check the following conditions:

  • Node is less than X minutes old (5? 10?)
  • There have been no replies to the node
  • Node maintainer supplies reason for deletion of node
Upon meeting these conditions, a node maintainer could "mark" the node as "Please Delete" which would "hide" it from readers. Then the reason for deletion of the node could go to vroom or another administrative-monk for approval of deletion. Perhaps the admins could have a queue of "please delete" nodes. Hmm?

    Add to the above list "There have been no votes on the node" and I think it's a great idea. This, along with the previous three conditions basically results in a "no harm/no foul" sort of thing. Cheers!
