according to previous discussion some questions already deleted and there are many question like tagged "deleted" waiting to be deleted.

Deleted questions are still in the database of forum and can be recovered if needed.

this is not an easy process, especially it is hard to decide if the question is really do not worth to have an answer.

i have some suggestions related this issue.

1. In my opinion upvoting any new question worth to have an answer and downvoting otherwise. yes some users and moderators do that but it will be great if all members who read the question use their vote.

2.we can leave a comment "voted for deleting"

3.All member can use flag offensive for useless posts

4. etc ( Please leave a comment or answer if you have more ideas )

i will update this question frequently to be read by more users so some general messages about the forum is also welcome

Comments

Probably questions closed for off-topic or not relevant to OpenCV can be deleted.

Other than that, unless for obvious reasons (spam, ...) it is not worth the effort in my opinion.

downside of idea .2: we haveto actively search for it

downside of idea .3: mods get flagged immediately, and it stays in the queue, unless someone actually deletes it

we can leave a comment "voted for deleting" when we are not sure if the question is low quality or giving a chance to OP to modify it.
