I was used to the threshold for a low quality post being 80, but in recent automatically flagged posts I read "Low answer quality score [90]."

What is the new threshold value?

1 Answer 1


There are 3 cases where the score is ignored and posts are flagged anyway provided the post is shorter than 220 chars.

  1. The answer contains "thank|cheers|thx|great" ..
  2. The answer contains "same.*?(problem|error|bug)"
  3. The answer is a single URL
  • Thank you. This helps in understanding what should be done to improve the answers flagged as low quality.
