Flagging button errors
Short, concise description of the idea
Flagging button should have an "are you sure you want to do this?" message and a chance to change your mind.
Full description of the idea
I am a newbie to LiveJournal. Twice I have used the "flagging" button thinking that I was marking the post for myself so I could find it later. Twice I have flagged one of my daughter's posts as obscene or adult. Yes, I am stupid. But, it would be helpful to be able to back out when I realize that "flagging" is not what I think it is. Today I had to confess to my daughter because she couldn't understand why she could no longer comment on her own account. Yes, I'm stupid. [Please fix her account if you can: _introspection. I sent comments to Abuse and Feedback, but I'm not sure I contacted the right place.]
- 1. Fewer accidental flaggings
- 2. More user comfort, for flagger and flaggee
- I don't know of any drawbacks to applying this suggestion
