The 'Not an Answer' Flag has the text
This was posted as an answer, but it does not attempt to answer the question. It should possibly be an edit, a comment, another question, or deleted altogether.
If the answer you wish to flag is an answer, but only in a 'general problem solving' sense rather than an answer involving interpersonal skills, is the 'not an Answer' flag still the correct one to use or should one use a custom flag?
We seem to get so many 'general problem solving' answers with no IPS element that it may be helpful to capture that explicitly in a standard flag. This could help to underline that difference, which some posters struggle with and act an an aide memoire for reviewers.
I can see that we wouldn't want an ever-expanding list of standard flags so perhaps it doesn't need a separate flag, perhaps the flag could be adapted to say
This was posted as an answer, but does not present an Interpersonal Skills based solution. It should possibly be an edit, a comment, another question, or deleted altogether.
So effectively I'm asking:
- Can we amend the 'Not an Answer flag text?
- should one use the 'Not an Answer' flag for answers which don't involve interpersonal Skills, or use a custom flag and spell it out each time?
