I see this notification on posts that were posted weeks ago and have multiple upvotes. They are in no way controversial. Why have they not been cleared and reinstated?
There are no flagged posts which have not been cleared. A post need not be “controversial” to violate ToS.
Such hidden posts remain hidden until auto deleted by the system after 30 days.
@skieurope There are a whole bunch of flagged posts on this thread. What are your top takeaways learned from the most recent admissions cycle for rising seniors about to apply? - #71 by ucbalumnus I’ve seen it on other threads as well.
Yes there are. All of which fall into my earlier explanation. S moderator agreed with the flag, so the post remains hidden until auto deleteed.
I’m not a mod, thank goodness, as it’s a lot of thankless work, but I agree 100% that there are flagged posts where I can see zero reason for the flag. The one you linked by @ucbalumnus is a great example. I won’t comment anymore on the subject. I just wanted you to know that you are not alone in this observation.
It seems to me people are flagging posts they don’t agree with. In my opinion CC will continue to lose good posters. Every time a “controversial” thread is closed CC risks losing posters who have in the past been helping and positive contributors.
