I believe I have mistakenly asked for an answer on SO to be deleted, when I actually wanted it edited...
I flagged the one and only answer on the this question on SO, because the answerer (who was the OP in the first place) had mis-formatted their answer. They had put
<form runat="server"> as part of their text, but not used the ` character, therefore the tag became "invisible".
I would have edited it myself, but it would have only need 2 characters changing (less than the required 6), and would then have required peer-reviewing... so instead I placed a comment on the answer stating this. Nothing happened, so I decided to contact a mod via the flag, so say it needed editing.
However, the answer has now completely vanished, and I'm worried that I have given the wrong impression to the moderator! (Despite the flag being marked as "helpful")
Is there any way to retract it, or contact the mod who did it, as I can't see anything obvious?
Looking at the list of questions on SO, the question is showing as updated by "Daniel Fischer", despite there being no obvious activity by him. Is there anyway of contacting Daniel directly? I know there is no "private message" facility within Stack Exchange.
Thanks to @JamesAllardice, he has been able to highlight that Daniel did not delete the answer, but actually edited it as it needed to be. I will leave the situation alone for the time being, and hope the dust settles accordingly.
