The Figallo effect

    I’m working on a concept for an online community based on BuddyPress where everyone is a moderator (c.f. Wikipedia, where everyone is an editor), building on the ethos of The WELL (‘The Figallo effect’). To overcome abuse from vandals, I’d like it so an item can only be moderated (e.g. by Subscribers) if it has be flagged by a set number of users (adjustable by admins).

    Is this something you’d be interested in including? If not, its certainly an adaption I’d like to make.

    Wouldn’t it be better to write this on wordpress itself with the help of custom post types and add_cap?

    Perhaps blow some life into this plugin?

    That would help with the WordPress specific functions like Blog and Page comments, but I don’t know about BuddyPress features?

    You don’t need Buddypress at all in this situation. The only thing Buddypress adds is a community.

    The only thing you may need in the future is the “report this” function, which will be a core function later on in Buddypress.
