In the past couple days, I’ve seen several users point out that there’s no way to flag story as incorrect, whereas we do have that option for comments.

    I think the big reason was that it’s pretty regular for people to link articles on here for the sake of criticism

      I’ve said it before and I will say it again: I think lobste.rs is fine as it is, and we don’t need this kind of granularity. That’s what the comments are for, among other things.

        Sometimes people don’t have time to read the comments, or aren’t interested enough to click through, but they’ll see the headline and make a note of it anyway. Seeing that it’s been flagged “incorrect” would be helpful, IMO.

        There have been a couple stories in the past few days where the headline was either very misleading or very old without a (2001) note.

          If a story is old without a date, you can use the suggest link. If enough people (two?) suggest the same change it automatically takes effect.

            This happened to me earlier for the first time. I had no date and boom that was fixed. Proven solution.
