First off, I am not here to argue nor to complain. I know this issue has been discussed many times. I am posting this seeking advice/clarification/guidance in order to help keeping SO tidy, rather than burdening users/mods.
I have been given the privilege to access moderator tools and I am eager to utilize this privilege in an appropriate way.
I was reviewing not an answer queue and flagged one post as not an answer. It was only a link with no further explanation. Based on not an answer description, that answer falls under comment.
The flag was declined, so I checked the answer again and it was deleted. I flagged the same answer again inquiring, why the flag was declined, yet the answer is converted into a comment? I assumed that my flag was correct when it was converted into a comment.
In the future, when I encounter such posts:
- Edit them by adding some information/details from the posted link?
- Flag moderator with explanation why this post should be deleted or converted into a comment?
- Down-vote the answer and inform OP to add more details?
