I've seen a number of questions where the only code posted is code that functions properly.
On that occasion, there will often be a number of users leaving comments stating (and demonstrating) that the code works properly, but invariably there will be another user who posts an answer that effectively states "Works for me" in so many words, accompanied by a link to a code testing site like jsFiddle.
Are these "Works for me" answers considered valid?
The reason I ask is that I flagged such an answer (now removed), but the flag was immediately declined with...
declined - a moderator reviewed your flag, but found no evidence to support it
- Does this type of answer to a non-question, or to a question that needs more info, satisfy the requirement of being an "actual" answer, even though it doesn't really do anything to help the user with the problem?
- Was my flag correctly declined?
- Do you like bullet lists as much as I?
