Welcome to the Graduated Hinduism Stack Exchange! :)

Directly Deleting unsourced answers without increasing moderator burden with 2 flags per post has been proposed in the month of Oct'21 which seems to have gotten a good response from the community. This post is now being posted for inviting discussion on it. Let's first try to understand the difference in action, to be taken upon finding unsourced answers, between the present policy and the proposed one.

Present Policy

Note: The exclusion criteria are denoted as T1 for the time criterion, E1 and E2 for the exclusion criteria following the sequence in which they're described here

  

Proposed Policy

  

Basically, we'll be implementing something like "shoot at sight" for unsourced answers, by nullifying the whole concept of time duration and exclusion which had been introduced with the policy and had been refined with an update.

Actually we, the moderator team was not sure whether it would be a good idea to implement this proposal, since, before the introduction of the policy first time in 2017, this type of action, i.e directly deleting unsourced answers without giving time for the OP to understand, used to be partially objected to by the community at that time which eventually lead us to fabricating the policy. However, considering the drawback of the present policy - unsourced answers living on the site for a very long time, and looking at the eligibility of the OP to flag for undeletion, we requested the CMs to guide us and they have asked us to post on meta for getting a consensus from the community.

So, please provide your feedback on this - Whether you agree with implementing the proposed policy or not. To do so, upvote the relevant answer below, corresponding to the policy, that you want implemented. You may also propose a better solution if any.

I have tried presenting the policy actions in a flow chart to make it logically and easily understandable. I'm sharing those present-policy.odg and proposed-policy.odg files which may be useful for quick editing in case you want to propose something different.

By consensus of community for changing the current policy to the proposed one, we are implementing the policy change now!

Note: Before flagging the unsourced answer for deleting, kindly check the exclusion criteria (E2) and also try to improve/salvage the post if it's possible and providing useful content!

Feel free to discuss in our main chat-room for any clarification or support regarding this.
