  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

There's like 5 in the top few of the front page and it's a little annoying as they get in the way so can a mod just delete them they serve no useful purpose.

I think this brings to light this post of mine. – Nathan Osman Dec 27 '10 at 0:30
Or just bringing down the rep required to close questions seeing as this site is unique in that rep is not a key part (eg low acceptance is pretty unavoidable) – Jonathan. Dec 27 '10 at 0:38
Anyone can vote to close. Maybe we need to make all users with >5k rep. have the ability to cast 'total' close votes which instantly close the question. (I can't remember the word for that.) – Nathan Osman Dec 27 '10 at 1:11
@George: No, you have to have a rep of 3000 to vote to close. – Dennis Williamson Dec 27 '10 at 2:00
@Dennis: Sorry, I meant that anyone with 3k rep. can close. – Nathan Osman Dec 27 '10 at 5:14

I can't vote to close unless I'm missing something? Mod tools require 10k rep. I guess we could elect someone as a mod ourselves, get them to post a question and upvote it, and have them answer that question and upvote the answers until they reach 10k. – Jonathan. Dec 27 '10 at 9:32
