Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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
