Dismiss flag in 10K tools error message

As a new-ish 10ker, I ventured over to http://stackoverflow.com/tools/flagged and I saw a bunch of entries with the only option for each being a link to "dismiss". There is no tooltip on this link, nor sufficient information on this page for me to know how to help.

  • I expected both 'thumbs up' ("make it so") and 'thumbs down' (I disagree) options. Why don't either/both of those exist? (Is my rep insufficient?)

  • I don't know which (if either) this link is. Is it "please mark this as 'read' and don't show it to me again"?

  • Where are the docs on moderation? Is it just searching through meta posts?

  • (the actual question/feature request) Can you please add a tooltip to these links that makes clear what the action will do?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@badp Thanks for 10k-vs-mod distinction. My question really is a feature-request, though, as adding knowledge for me is less important than making this obvious for all future 10ks. –  Phrogz Feb 6 '11 at 15:56

See this question on meta programmers.

As a 10K user you shouldn't be seeing the "dismiss" link.

If you click it you get an error.

The link is for moderators to remove the flag from the post.
