There's no way to undo a GA, is there?

Asked by bob_ (19596points) July 9th, 2010

When one accidentally gives a Great Question, is there a way to undo that? Not that it’s that big of a deal, but say you want to flag a response, but you slip, and whoa, you’ve GA-ed it. Too bad?

You can still flag and explain. And you’re right. It’s not too big a deal. But deal or no deal, vigilance keeps this site pristine.

There isn’t a way to undo a GA, but if you really wanted to flag it, flag it and put a comment in the flag about your erroneous GA.

Jinx @gailcalled – I owe you a fresh-squeezed lemonade.

Since I’m not so far away, I’ll be waiting. I’m also not so far from that place in N. Westchester, either.

janbb's avatar

I’m squeezing right now.

That is just too much effort to worry about.

Its not like giving a GA is going to cause a nuclear war.

Not a big deal.

No one cares.

@jjmah Why, thank you for your valuable input :P

@jjmah Now we’re talking.

@SeventhSense: “Clean, fresh, like new.” I admit, though, not the perfect word choice. It’s the heat. (But it’s better than calling the pulp in citrus fruit “orange cells.”)

SeventhSense's avatar

No, I certainly wouldn’t use any of those descriptors. It’s too jaded and recycled to be fresh and new. There’s nothing new under the sun.

I seem to recall Augustlan’s answering this same Q once by saying not even the mods could undo a GA and that sometimes she had accidentally clicked GA when she meant to click flag, and there was no taking it back. The only thing to do is shrug it off.

bob_'s avatar

@jazmina88 I’m sorry things didn’t work out.

@bob_ Did you give me lurve by mistake again? Don’t worry – I’ll just change accounts again and start all over.
But if you really wanted to – you could hold back on a GQ/GA the next time said person said something brilliant. That would even out the score. Are you writing this down? Pearls.

bob_'s avatar

@zenele OH NO! NOT AGAIN!

zenele's avatar

You started it. Sandwich?

bob_'s avatar

My stomach is feeling kind of funny at the moment, so I think I should pass, thanks.

Got any whisky, though?

zenele's avatar


Pours a shot. Highball. Chivas. Cheers, @bob_

BoBo1946's avatar

okay, given ummmm up…give me all my lurves back! I’m taking my marbles, most loose, and going home!

augustlan's avatar

[mod says] @Jeruba is correct. I’ve been trying to remove an answer, and given it a GA instead. So frustrating!

lloydbird's avatar

@bob_ Please,...just try and be more careful.

janbb's avatar

@bob_ Sometimes you just have to put the sandwich down!

bob_'s avatar

@lloydbird That’s what she said. Wait, um, damn… :/

bunnyslippers's avatar

@bob_ now there is a question for you, why is “that’s what she said” always funny, even on the occasions it makes no sense?

Dr_C's avatar

It makes sense if you don’t think about it.
