    When we developed the new site, we thought that the "flag post" option would be a great way to maintain the standards of ResearchBlogging.org. In fact there has been very little use of the option. I'm wondering why that is -- is it that the posts are of such high quality that no one ever feels the need to flag a post? Or do people not understand what "flag post" is for?

    Users should flag a post whenever they feel it doesn't meet our standards or follow our guidelines. This doesn't mean the post will be deleted -- ideally we'd get many flags for posts and then use them to decide what action to take.

    We'd appreciate any suggestions on how to encourage users to utilize this feature.

    RB should provide a way to flag a post directly in the blog. This could be done by modifying the code that bloggers have to insert in their posts to include the option for flagging (even for non-registered readers). I guess that there would be more flagged posts if readers can flag a post without going to the RB site.
