I am now quite confused. Are we supposed to ask very specific questions about OTRS hoping to get an answer because if the questions are too generic for sure we will never get a lot of answers? is that the general idea?
ok if it helps, here are some of them 1. are OTRS policies categorized somehow? is there a page with instruction with how to handle mails from private companies, from people, mails of legal issues, mail about copyright etc2. how are OTRS agents reviewed? is it a peer-review process? is it regularly done?3. do we have a policy that impose a minimal constant activity on content-reòated platform to keep OTRS flag? 4. how can a normal user file a request to deflag another operator?5. is there a open log of OTRS requests, some place where minimal information related to a ticket can be disclosed (for example the date of arrival and maybe if it is regarding some content or some other topic?)6. is there a open log of OTRS operators, where we can see when they got the flag, a link to the request and how many queue they are handling? I think it's enough for now.

I'm not going to waste further energy on that. Answering that would require me to actually understand what the underlying issue is that you want to solve. I've given up on that.
