I have had a few conversations with board members about hoax threads and the idea of some kind of system for us members to have some power in helping
other members see that just because a certain thread is flagged and starred over a 100 times, it doesnt mean that OP is factual. There are so many
threads that went to page 20 without being properly moved. Im sure you guys know some of the ones Im talking about recently.
This is not to debate about the thread itself, but it was moved to the hoax thread. But it garnered 82 stars and almost 100 flags. It didnt get moved
until page 24. Perhaps if ATS allowed us to click a hoax flag to counter the simple star and flag, it allows a member to enter a thread with a little
Sure it may be abused, but same can be said for the original star and flag system. This hoax flag wouldnt be the final say of course. That would
still be left up to the mods. But we members have the power to give a thread the proper attention it deserves, perhaps its time for us to be able to
give a thread the proper attention it deserves when discovering it is a hoax as well.
