Flagging update: new free-form text option, tweaking flag lists

I'm excited to announce we're rolling out a long-requested feature: free-form text flagging, a new flagging option that will allow you to, when necessary, leave a brief note when you flag a post or comment. We've also tweaked the list of predefined flagging reasons to reduce the length of the list a bit. [more inside]

My "actually..." sense is tingling!

Everyone who participates on this site has one thing in common, which is that they had to make that very first comment or answer or FPP or question or MeTa (well, probably not MeTa). What got you to put down five bucks to say something? Or, if you're from before the sign-up fee, or were gifted an account or whatever, what was the moment that made you break out of lurk?

Can cortex's deletion reasons be collected?

Pony request for my birthday: Can cortex's deletion reasons be collected? Stuff like this is one of my favorite features of the site.

Double bad.

I'd just like to point out the very first double mod deletion. [more inside]

Emotional Intelligence post deleted, but why?

I'm curious why my carefully researched post about emotional intelligence -- the culmination of a three-month ordeal I suffered that I honestly think needed to be shared -- was deleted. Most of the links were articles that were no more than two weeks old, and there was a lot of activity in the comments. True, there was a previous post about the subject, but its main link was dead. Considering the trivial subjects of my other posts, I'm surprised that this one was taken down.

A season for reason that's pleasin'

Best deletion explanation ever.

A small question about metafilter deleting posts.

A small question about metafilter deleting posts. Why so hasty? Why so abrupt? Perhaps we, as a online community, should define more precisely *exactly* the demographic metafilter, as a business, seeks to appeal toward. Posts on metaTalk get deleted before I can even put a more in depth explaination. What is going on here?

How does admin justify keeping this post about Gitmo but deleting this one about Chechnya?

How does admin justify keeping this post about Gitmo but deleting this one about Chechnya?

Yes, I realize I contributed to the Gitmo thread. But one newsfilter deserves another, right?

Please help me understand this.

"This post was deleted for the following reason: this is 4-5 years old, the woman was fine, just knocked the wind out of her. It's from Georgia I think."

Please help me understand this.

Request: official deleted threads index on the site

Deleted threads should have their own place on this site somewhere. Not only could they be accessible for reference, but many are funny as hell.

PickyProofreaderFilter: "You've stumbled upon a non-existent post, or one that was deleted for various reasons." Are threads never deleted for only one reason? :-)

Do you find out why your Anonyme question is rejected?

If an anonymous question is posted to AskMeFi which is deemed inappropriate for the page, do the administrative powers e-mail the original poster to explain why?

What is the policy re accesing previously deleted posts and their deletion justifications?

What is the policy re accesing previously deleted posts and their deletion justifications? Is there a listing somewhere ? (Could be good for learning by negative example, although certainly defeats the purpose since accesing previously deleted posts means they have not really been deleted.)
