I got a review item for "closed w/o comment (auto)". But this is my only option:

enter image description here

Am I supposed to just leave it as-is? I added a comment, but I still only have the option to flag/disagree. If I do nothing, won't the flag just disturb the next person to come along to the review queue?

  • I wondered the same thing, saw this in mine this morning – Rhys Jul 30 '13 at 10:08
  • Was this in one of the review queues? Or the 10k tools? – yoozer8 Jul 30 '13 at 12:35
  • Seeing as how I have 6k rep, it can't be 10k tools I don't think. There was a yellow circle next to my name which I clicked, and it brought me to that. It didn't say a queue name. I have no idea what it was. – jmac Jul 30 '13 at 14:27

    @jmac On beta sites, the threshold for access to the 10k tools is 2k. It sounds like that's what this is. – yoozer8 Jul 30 '13 at 16:44
  • This appeared for me as well...considering I am the person who flagged it. – Michael Grubey Jul 31 '13 at 7:25

On beta sites, when a question is closed without any comments, Community automatically flags it for attention (see here).

These flags have popped up in the flag queue from time to time (whenever this happens).

It seems the text of the flag has recently changed.

You can just leave it until a diamond mod dismisses it; I doubt anyone will be too disturbed by its presence.

Typically the two actions you could take in addition to flagging for attention or as invalid are close and delete:

  • Close: It's already closed, so this option is not available.
  • Delete: Posts with a score higher than -2 can't be voted for deletion until they've been closed for two days, so this action isn't available.
  • So I should ignore that review queue? I find it odd that an item would pop up that the only action I can take is nothing... – jmac Jul 30 '13 at 23:19
  • @jmac See here, although I doubt it will tell you anything you don't already know. It seems the only other actions you could take are close (already closed) and delete (not eligible). – yoozer8 Jul 30 '13 at 23:31
  • Oh so "community is the one making those pesky and confusing flags! Hahahahaha, I've been curious about that for a while :) – enderland Aug 1 '13 at 14:52
