How to remove a spam/abuse flag once issued by mistake?

Poking around the forum I flagged a post by mistake and noticed that I couldn't revert the action.

I don't think I made a big damage, but.. just to know: is it possible to take the flag back? :)

  • Hello GioP, 

      Depending on the action you took, we can usually "undo" an erroneous flag or setting.  You will have to provide the link to the thread, the action you took, and what the status was before you clicked the link to whatever you did. 

    And normally this type of request would be posted in the Site Support Forum: https://e2e.ti.com/support/site-support  , to where I have moved this thread.  Please send the details and we'll see what can be undone!

    Regards,

    ~Leonard

    thank you Leonard!

    Hi Giovanni,

     So you are saying you clicked the  More button, then the Flag as Spam/Abuse line, is that correct?

  • In reply to LeonardEllis:

    Yes,


    and the system didn't ask for confirm, yet I still see it as "flagged" and can't undo.

    Hi Giovanni,

     I don't see any notification or flag; have you cleared the browser cache since this was done?  One method I use for IE is to set the "load page each time" setting in the Advance IE features, that way it always loads the current page, not retrieve it from cache. Or try using Chrome or Firefox, see if you get the same. If you can send a screenshot of what you are observing, that would be helpful.

    Thanks,

    ~Leonard

    In the capture I previously sent, no, I had not.  But when I do, I see the option to report, it is not showing as already flagged:

    My privileges list does not allow me to do much more than "rising a flag" on others' posts.
    Probably I cannot really do it neither, and it's good: at least I did not inappropriately report another user's abuse! :-)
