Post withdrawn unless flagged?


(Adam Capriola) #1

(post withdrawn by author, will be automatically deleted in 24 hours unless flagged)

How does this feature work (or is it a feature)? A user on my forums deleted a bunch of their posts in a topic for no apparent reason, so one of the deletions was flagged. The options I have for the flag are to either “Agree (hide post + send PM)” or “Agree with flag.”

What do I want to select here and am I supposed to manually restore the posts?

This might be an edge case in flagging @zogstrip.

You can clear (defer or agree) the flag manually and then take action directly on the post until we get a dialog box to handle this case.

This edge case is now supported :tropical_fish:
