If I flag a post, then I re-read it, and decide that I think it does fit into the site, how do I un- flag the post?

  • Generally, in the SE sites you cannot unflag a post you've flagged Jun 25, 2015 at 20:30
  • The general advice from SE is "be more careful with your flags", but mistakes do happen (in which case luser droog's answer is good).

Probably the best you can do is raise another flag, select "other", and explain what's changed. The mod will see all the flags on the post in a list, so just explain whatever needs explaining. They'll get the message.

    Yep - we're reasonably intelligent, so a wee note will let us know :-)
