Flag Reasons August 3, 2006 4:16 PM   Subscribe

this has been mentioned before, but.. i am sometimes hamfisted, and was trying to flag a post as fantastic and instead submitted a "pick a reason:" flag. all of the discussion in the previous thread was about superseding flags - but is it a lot of work to make the site simply reject the pick-a-reasons?

I decided to make it easier on people by just accepting the unchecked flag and recording it as nothing. Just reflag it as fantastic to wipe out the old one.

hmm.. it says i already flagged it when i try the second time. i guess i interpreted that to mean that the second one got vaporized. sorry!

I was also under the impression that you couldn't reflag something (I even posted to MeTa about it, and I thought it was left unfixed).

Eideteker is right. Or my browser's being buggy. Or all of this is a hallucination and I'm being bedeviled by my subconscious for some reason that will come clear in Act III.

I'm a big believer in helpful, contextual error messages.
