Yesterday an answer I posted to a question was flagged with the following notice:
Want to improve this post? Add citations from reputable sources by editing the post. Posts with unsourced content may be edited or deleted.
I have no objection to this in principle, although was a little surprised that the moderators had not left a comment to which I could reply when I had fixed it. After the original poster had confirmed my interpretation of the question (the ambiguity being one reason for the brevity of my answer) I conducted some time-consuming research and then revised the post, providing extensive references, explanation and illustration.
Twenty four hours have elapsed, and the flag still remains, suggesting to readers that my revised answer still contains unsourced content. Hard cases make bad law, and I am not in the habit of complaining about an individual case. My point is that in these circumstances one has no way of communicating to the moderators that the answer has been fixed.
I think that that needs fixing.
