I was reviewing low-quality answers and stumbled over this one: https://anime.stackexchange.com/a/8395/122

Below the answer, there's the following note:

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

"Okay", I thought, "then let's vote to delete it" because it seems like a guess. However, the following reasons for deletion are available:

  • No comment needed
  • This is an commentary on another post, not an answer
  • This is a "Thank You" comment
  • This is an "I have a problem, too" comment
  • This is a different question posted as an answer
  • This is a link-only answer (and not spam)

I don't know what I should choose if the answer has no explanations. Should such answers deleted in the first place?

  • Tagged as "support" because I don't think it's a problem with the site and I'm just too stupid. – looper Apr 2 '14 at 13:43

This has merit for being part of the clean up. If you see such a question or comment be sure to flag it for us to review (answers and comments). We'll check to see if our meidos need to take care of it!

    Is this not an ongoing issue though? – Toshinou Kyouko Apr 3 '14 at 22:27

    not really it doesn't really happen too frequently, but it doesn't hurt to keep track of it so it doesn't get out of hand. – кяαzєя Apr 3 '14 at 23:55
  • Also doesn't hurt (well, okay, it hurts a bit) to just downvote it. Once it hits -3 it doesn't really distract from the post anymore. – Killua Apr 7 '14 at 17:35
