This is actually possible, it's just... Super non-intuitive and weird, because the tool you'd use was meant for something entirely different. Here's the trick: you gotta convert the answer to a comment, and choose the option to move comments on the answer with it. This lets you select an arbitrary post as the destination - so, another answer or the ...

First off - I love that you're rethinking this. There's some great data being exposed, but I want to challenge you to have someone to take an axe to the layout - the headers and fluff at the top. The process you list doesn't say anything about mobile, but comment if you want me to raise this as a new thread / FR instead of answering here. Now to the ...

It's not doing entirely what you want, but I've written a script 'Saviour' of Lost Souls, originally made for blatantly off-topic questions here on Meta Stack Exchange, posted users who didn't have a clue what Meta was about. It leaves a welcoming comment as well, and if you have enough reputation, it even votes to delete. (As a ♦ moderator, such a ...

This is building out now. This was an oversight when revamping some other elements of the UI. But... Shog pointed out that hash-linking also broken in a variety of cases so I worked up a better solution. Now, Question, answer, and comment links in the bar point to the canonical URL, like they do in the dashboard but we have JavaScript intercept with the ...

I went ahead and disabled the new UI here until we can properly vet side effects of clearing flags. Whatever solution we arrive at, we probably want to surface the downvote behavior to moderators (when it happens) so they know what the button is doing.

No, ♦ moderators don't see these comments, just like they don't see posts which are flagged as spam by 6 users. (There's a feature request to have that changed; I posted a few workarounds as an answer there. Those don't work for comments, though.) What could happen is that multiple 'harassment' and 'unfriendly' comment flags lead to an automatic flag '...

With the new Moderator Dashboard, this is now status-completed; the comment is shown with a clickable timestamp, just like on the normal Q&A page.

This is an issue even on my pretty good sized screens with a single flag active ... I can't even hit the button on the mod message dialog for the flag banner being in the way.

The new moderator flag dashboard shows an [edited] label if the post has been edited after the flag has been cast: This isn't exactly what the author of this question proposed, but it does provide a visual indicator that something has changed and makes it more likely that the ♦ moderator will investigate not only the latest version of the post but its ...

What's missing here, in this case, applying to a "not an answer" flag, is the ability to add a comment, typically "welcome to Money.SE, this is not an answer to the question above, please post as a new question." Note: this is different from Mooseman's answer. I wish to leave the comment on the answer (not an answer) before hitting delete.

I don't see a way to leave custom feedback on comment flags, whether I delete the comment or decline the flag. I had an issue on my site where I wanted to respond more than just "helpful" and was unable to do that.
