What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

I can't seem to find the best approach or documentation on how to handle a particular issue. So you go to Review and someone clearly post this:

       You should always provide code when asking a question.

Now granted they didn't have the required reputation to post a Comment. But it still isn't a valid answer. So I Flagged for a Moderator. As I can't move it to a comment. But after I've done my needed editing.

In those type of instances, do you just go:

  • No Action Needed.
  • Skip

I usually skip, but I'm not really sure if I should be.

What is the best approach for those instances?


Update:

I'm mostly asking cause for the First Time when I Flagged the question, the I'm done actually became Grey instead of allowing me to select it.

Doesn't flagging enable "I'm done"? –  Daniel Fischer Mar 8 '13 at 20:53

Once you've completed actions inside review, you click the I'm Done button to complete review. Are you leaving the review panel to edit and flag or something? –  animuson Mar 8 '13 at 20:53
    
@DanielFischer It actually didn't enable it, it turned grey on me. –  Greg Mar 8 '13 at 20:59
    
"the I'm done actually became Grey" Wait, it's greyed out initially. If its colour changes, that should mean it becomes enabled. –  Daniel Fischer Mar 8 '13 at 21:17
    
@DanielFischer It started off black; then when I flagged it, it turned grey. So I had "No Action" or "Skip" and was like "uh?" –  Greg Mar 8 '13 at 21:24
    
Erm, yes, right, "Uh?" If it started off black something was amiss already. –  Daniel Fischer Mar 8 '13 at 21:26

Could be related to this bug? –  Hannele Apr 8 '13 at 15:08

I think the answer is yes, they should be flagged because they aren't valid answer.

Now granted they didn't have the required reputation to post a Comment.

Well, reputation unlocks privileges. If you don't have enough to perform a certain task, than don't do it. Posting an answer instead of a comment is wrong, not a solution.

the First Time when I Flagged the question, the I'm done actually became Grey instead of allowing me to select it.

I think this should not happen.

Thank you for the feedback, yeah I actually had some Moderators decline those on Flags on me. But that is good to know. –  Greg Apr 8 '13 at 15:09
