"What are all the mistakes in this Specsavers ad?" has proven to be a very popular question - as I type this, it has almost 14,000 views and counting. However, because of that, it seems to be attracting a lot of low-quality answers.
Currently, of the five answers on the question, four are from 1-rep users, and list only two or three mistakes compared to the accepted answer's 17. This one and this one are both attempts to reply to the accepted answer, saying "you forgot these ones", and this one almost entirely consists of mistakes that are already in the accepted answer. I don't have enough rep to see whether there are any deleted answers, but I strongly suspect there are.
I don't think this should be allowed to continue. This question needs sorting out. I suggest taking the following steps:
- Delete the 1-rep answers and edit them into the accepted answer
- Turn the accepted answer into a Community answer, so anyone who spots additional mistakes can just edit them in (this is the usual procedure on SciFi.SE regarding "what are all the X in Y?" questions)
- Protect the question to make sure there are no further 1-rep drive-by answerers
Is this an acceptable course of action, or going too far? If not this, then what should we do about this question?
