May I request to have a feature something like this? Sometimes when I post tutorials I get many responses BEFORE I post it. This is really irritating. I wrote a tutorial and till then many replies had been posted like "wait let us answer" And then I saw a mistake, but I couldn't post it again because a LOT OF replies were posted like 'good tutorial' and all. I don't have a mod right now, so I need this feature to implement in the near future.

there is much chance on misuse as mathlover said

Some people still need to have that option.

We post tutorials and most of the time some random replies come before we write it out. Our tutorial needs to stay at the top, as that is the only point of the post.

You may flag it for a moderator's attention. I often clear up irrelevant posts myself.
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
Can you clear up mine?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I will. Report abuse, requesting "Clearing irrelevant comments".
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
Actually, they were not really irrelevant. But, they posted it before I posted my tutorial. So, that doesn't really deserve a report.
anonymous
  • anonymous
If they are not really irrelevant why do you want to delete it?
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
Well because my tutorial must be on top.

http://openstudy.com/users/parthkohli#/updates/4fe5a366e4b06e92b873c2db I made someone delete their comments or my tutorial wasn't even visible until you scrolled down enough.

  • ParthKohli
Can you delete the top three comments?

Thank you!

They were indeed somewhat irrelevant. I have fixed it now. For future reference there are couple of solution for this: (1) You can use the edit feature to edit the question. (2) Report abuse/Flag to invite a moderator's attention.

  • ParthKohli
I don't see a flag option :|
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
and does editing questions delete the irrelevant comments? o.O
anonymous
  • anonymous
No, but it will bring your tutorial to the top. Obviously, you will loose the corresponding medals. The flag is same as report abuse.
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
Really? Editing question = losing medals?
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
Let me try. I'd message you a link to test it with.
anonymous
  • anonymous
When you edit the question to post your tutorial in it, the previous post of your tutorial as replies will be unnecessary. Deletion of which results the medals to evaporate into the system.
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
Let me send a test link to you so i could try it out.
AravindG
  • AravindG
u mean post the entire tutorial by esing edit qn?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes.
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
Oh okay, I see.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Although, you can avoid it by keeping at-least one reply in that thread.

Another possible solution: Write the tutorial in some sort of text editor. Type up an intro to put into the question box, post the question, and immediately copy/paste the tutorial into the first reply.
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
I did.

@KingGeorge's suggestion is what we use to write up release notes (which are similar in that way). That means we can post the question and immediately post the reply with the actual notes.
