Would it work (and be useful) to have users add a #ResolveCheck tag to closed markets to get feedback?

We could set up a norm under which any market with questionable or uncertain resolution criteria could be tagged and have a set of (unmonitored and unvetted) volunteer judges comment on what they think the resolution should be. This would obviously have to be a voluntary action taken by the market creator. We have most of the key factors in place: you can comment on closed markets, you can add tags to closed markets, and you can search by tag. All that would be needed is a community norm... and ideally, to have the #ResolveCheck (or whatever) tag be one of the core categories. Comment with feedback.

For what purpose? Once a market is resolved, they can't change it, all you can do is shame or ostracize a market creator who acts in bad faith.

@AdrianKelly Specifically, for closed markets that are not yet resolved.

I'm in favor of such a norm. I think expanding the set of ambiguity in resolution criteria could lead to very interesting options

I think there's a few elements missing: * A way to watch for new entries in a tag (receive a notification) * A reputation system that would easily allow people to judge the judges * Any incentive to issue judgements (comment upvotes, or direct M$ transfers)

@FranekZak I don't think the later two are so important; "judges" are really just a second set of eyes, who can point out other sources and point out missed arguments; they can be the zaniest nutballs in the universe, as long as they link to a useful source. Likewise, anyone betting in the market is motivated to give feedback; this would be their cue that the market is on hold for them to give it. Anyone else willing to join in is a great bonus... and one that I suspect that MM will often provide. Point #1 one, though, is excellent.
