Today on Stack Overflow, I flagged an answer for NAA and left a comment. The user then edited his answer to fix it, so I wanted to retract the flag. This was my first time ever retracting a flag, so I had no idea where it was. I even checked the flagging dialog for it. While this is where I found it, the button was blue. I guess my brain just assumed it was the same button that was used to post a flag so I missed it.

So I guess my suggestion is to possibly change the color of the retract button to a more brighter color like red, or something different than blue. Although red brings forth the issue of associating a more negative connotation of retracting a flag, so I am unsure.

    I wonder if it'd make more sense to move the button so that it's next to the "This is the flag you currently have raised" text, rather than changing the color.

    @Catija yeah I thought about that too, would be much easier to see and make sense

  • Sometimes you just need another pair of eyes to discover things ... ;)

  • @rene yes apparently, your eyes for example. I don't think I would have ever found it.
