Today I reviewed the first revision of this answer. I recommended deletion, which AFAIK results in it getting queued for moderator attention.
My recommendation might not be entirely correct, the answer was not invalid per se.
What is important is that the answer was edited afterwards, and only because someone commented on the automatically added comment ("This does not provide an answer to the question. To critique ...") did I notice that the answer was changed. And changed into something that would no longer need moderator attention.
I did not find a way to retract this recommendation, (like you can do with—no longer applicable—votes).
What is the proper way to proceed in this case?
- should I try and notify the moderators
- should I remove the automatically generated comment
As I indicated: without the comments I would never have noticed that this low-quality answer was changed after I had reviewed it. I would have liked a notification based on the edit of something I recommended to be deleted (even though I don't know how to proceed to change my recommendation), if nothing else to encourage the Answerer that things have indeed improved.
