The while thumbs down thing................

I've heard that if a answer is voted down a certain amount of times it's deleted. I was just wondering, how many times would it have to be voted down to get deleted?

  • Hidden, not deleted, and to clarify it somply isn't just a vote down of 6 times but the difference of vote downs to vote ups must be equivilant to 6 or more. That means an answer with 6 vote downs but 2 vote ups will not be hidden because the difference is only 4 but an answer with say 9 votedowns and 3 vote ups will be hidden.

  • It is hidden, but not deleted. I think it has to be voted down at least 5 more times than it was voted up.

  • Answers are deleted when they are reported to CM and CM finds them in violation of the TOS. Voting down collapses them.

  • It's NOT deleted! It is just hidden!! And it's a vote down of 6 or more to hide a post. If it's an anonymous post the then poster loosed points.

  • Ditto - hidden rather than deleted.
