I'd like to see the exact same rule, with the caveat that a post without a question mark will not be deleted if the following two criteria are met:

  • if a question mark were added to the title, it would read as a grammatically correct question

  • more than 5 users have commented in the thread

That's pretty good, it seems like a fair and reasonable middle ground. Maybe try posting it to /v/ModsOfAskVoat as well.

I must say that I like this criterion very much, although It's still potentially subjective

  • more than 5 users have commented in the thread

I like this because it's objective (say, 5 users + OP at least) and it's a way to say “ok, the post might not have been correct, but it has still gathered enough interest”. (There is some potential for abuse from the poster (sockpuppets and whatnot) to “protect” posts, of course.)

I like the first part, but I don't see why having 5 or 50 or 500 people responding really makes a difference. A question is a question, isn't it

It's so the mods don't erase a discussion that has already began. I have no qualms with the mods deleting an incorrectly formatted question and messaging OP to repost correctly before anyone has really had a chance to answer.
