Crowd Control for Plugins incompatibility, security, etc.


  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    Introduce additional button to Plugins list, like Complain, after click on it -> in popup select one of: compatibility, security. It will add additional layer of moderation (free moderation) to the plugins ecosystem.

    Don't take hard actions on complained plugins, just add some red notice (after N complains or X security complains), like: Plugin maybe dangerous or doesn't work properly

    P.S.
    This implementation will be a bonus for future, with same approach - Rating System could be introduced for plugins.



  • This is a great idea, I'm just mulling over a safe way to implement this..

    If produced in exact way you defined, then it would be easier for someone to spam their competitor's plugin with bogus complaints and unnecessarily mar a good author's reputation.

    Hmmm...great idea though...


  • Community Rep

    I have a feeling this is something the devs have thought about already, a sort of rating system for plugins. Seems pretty common in other plugin ecosystems.


  • Global Moderator

    They have been planning on doing something like this for a while, but with the NBBPM site itself. Adding abilities to report plugins and have them pulled from the official list, etc
