Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

OK, this might sound down-right dumb to some people, others way see it as a user issue - I don't know, I'm just here to bring it up...

While using the review page to moderate first answers I was curious as to how I mark something as being 'OK' - selecting the flag option from the full answer obviously gave me the dialog within which I found no obvious method to achieve what I wanted and so left; the next thing I did (stupidly, or not) was to hit the flag for attention button, just to see if I got a dialog with options again, but alas - I flagged a reasonable answer by mistake.

I know I should have been more careful, but obviously curious as to how it all works so that I may at least do these things knowledgeably and competently.

I know I won't make this error again, but is it worth thinking of a 'whoops' button of sorts?

Also, as an aside, would it be possible for my action to be manually revoked?

I don't see the benefit of this. The mods will just ignore the misflag. You will lose a little flag weight, but that's not a big deal. See this related post for a mod's opinion on a similar matter.
