in thread Front Page with Negative Rep..

While at it, what exactly are the criteria for auto-reaping (like ratio between keep/delete), and what other rules are there, programatically enforced or not, for reaping/editing?

Apparently, gods can do pretty much what they please with a node, which is ok - they are trusted with this power for a reason, I'm sure. :) But I am just curious as to what things happen automatically, and when, or when for instance editors are allowed to do this or that?

Unless that is on a need-to-know-basis as the cool guys in sunglasses and dark costumes always say on film... ;-)

    When a fifth or later "delete" vote is cast, if the node has a negative reputation and fewer than 2 "keep" votes, then it is reaped.
