in thread Front Page with Negative Rep..

There were actually 14 "keep" votes. This should mean that it couldn't have been automatically reaped. I asked a few gods if they had reaped the node by hand and was not surprised to hear only "no" responses. There still may be a member of gods that did the reaping that I didn't talk with. Or there might be a security problem that allowed a non-god to reap the node. Or there might be a bug that caused the auto-reaping to happen despite the "keep" votes.

But my best guess is that one of the gods reaped the node by accident. In any case, it will be unreaped soon (no, I won't go into the details of why I can't just unreap it now).

And I'll keep my eyes open for evidence of the other possible explanations.

    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... ;-)

    You have moved into a dark place.
    It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

      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.
