Workflow for /Contribute is unclear

At the bottom of pages is a nice "Share your knowledge" button that leads to /Contribute. Perhaps you decide you want to fix some guide, so you click Fix Guides. Grammar seems like an easy thing you know how to fix, so you pick a guide from the "Grammar Police" section.

Now what? You can edit the guide, but you can't remove the flag. Are you supposed to flag it for attention to the moderators somehow so they can evaluate your changes and see if the flag should be removed? Does it go into an automatic queue where someone looks to see if flags need to be updated? It's unclear how the loop closes from editing a guide back around to taking items off of the list of things that need to be fixed.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The workflow should be easy!

  1. Find a guide with a flag
  2. Fix the problem or determine that it doesn't need fixing
  3. Remove the flag!

Alas, it looks like step #3 is broken. You should be able to remove (most) flags from guides. That must have broken recently — I'll get right on fixing it and creating an automated test so it doesn't happen again.

An aside: The Contribute page is old, not very pretty, and missing a lot of important functionality — we plan to redesign it soon.

We just fixed step #3 — you should be able to remove any flag you like now!
