A question I asked a while ago has been put on hold because the moderators think my question does not satisfy the criteria of a good homework question. I disagreed with that assertion so I flagged my question. It was declined with this response:
declined - flags should only be used to make moderators aware of content that requires their intervention
I may have made a mistake by writing in my flag statement that I wanted an explanation for marking my question as off-topic. I actually wanted them to either remove the off-topic remark from my question or give a clearer explanation about where I went wrong with my question.
But I am now unsure about the role of moderators in such cases. Did the moderators not put my question on hold? Are they not the ones who can intervene and mark my question as valid again?
