Guides should be removed if they are ranked below a certain percentage for a certain length of time. This could help remove all the guides that are either unhelpful or just bad. I get tired of seeing all of Beepy's short bad guides filling up space with short bad guides.

What does everyone else think?

Well, I disagree with this. Just because a guide is ranked bad doesn't mean that the owner wont change it overtime, and most do. I don't know if you have ever made a build/guide, but it takes a lot of time and planning to get all the info you want and to create it, to just get rid of it would piss people off when they put all that work into it, I know it would make me angry. Further more just because some people think the guide sucks doesn't mean that it doesn't work for at least one other person other than the owner, and if it does work for someone else, than thats the whole point of having it.

Besides its not hard to tell which guides are the top ranked ones, just look at percentages and votes. It's not really an inconvenience for you to look at a few percents and votes.

Yeah, that's just mean. A person puts hard work into their guides, and if one day they find their guide gone, what would they think? It's their opinion, and they can put anything they want in their guide, even if it conflicts with others.

I believe this is a somewhat good idea, but instead of a deleted guide, just unpublish it and allow it to be republished.

A lot of great guides gets negative votes just because other people want their own guides in top, so it isn't worth deleting the guides with lower rating, just let them be.
