Deleted answers help page starts with the sentence:
Answers that do not fundamentally answer the question may be removed.
And goes on to give examples of non-answer answers.
Yet, deletion can also be performed when an answer does indeed answer the question, but it disagrees with the rpg.se site policies. Currently, this is not explicitly stated.
According to the help page, the only way that policy-infringement deletions can happen appears to be through the following rule:
Answers can also be deleted by the community. Moderators can delete any answer, and trusted community members can vote to delete answers scoring -1 or lower (3 votes will result in deletion).
But if we follow up and read about trusted community members, we find out that trusted members may vote to delete answers in the following cases:
- The answer is extremely low quality: There is little to no scope for improvement
- The answer doesn't attempt to answer the question; it may be a comment or a separate question altogether.
Note again that the deletion due to infringement of rpg.se site policies is still not covered.
Please note that when I mention rpg.se site policy, I am not talking about stack exchange policies, but the rules set over the years by rpg.se community themselves.
In summary, could we improve the deletion help page to make it clear that answers disagreeing with rpg.se site policies (the ones voted in by the community) can be deleted?
