Q&A for work
Connect and share knowledge within a single location that is structured and easy to search.
I flagged a question (this one) wrongly as off-topic just to realize that it was asked within the support date and that an edit made it look like a new one.
Now how do I remove my flag to not cause users to waste unnecessary time with the flag?
You can't, flags are not reversible and you will have to trust the moderators and other more privileged users good judgement.
