clicking "false error" incorrectly

What happens if we click "False error" by mistake? Is there a way to see what has been flags as a false error for re-review? Is there a way to undo?

II haven't done it yet (that I know of), but was unsure about one apparent obvious typo, that's not really a typo, according to the family.

I did it once before I knew what the link did.  Not too big a deal, just means it won't show up in future error reports.  Hopefully the PMs and others will find ones like that any way.  But Undo would be nice if it is not too much trouble to  set up.

Its only a big deal in that the errors (mistakenly marked as not errors) are now swept under the rug, never to be noticed again (at least via this tool).

Either use Template DB_Errors with third parameter set
{{Db_errors|10|Wheeler-10589|Y}}

or add &ShowHidden=1

ShowHidden does not show profiles marked with False Error
Hm sounds that is something we need...
indeed... thus my original question :)

users should probably also be forced to add a brief comment as to why they think its a false error.

I know of these problem. I will do something about that in the future. I am not sure what, but something.

If you corrected the error, then it really doesn't matter.

I am reviewing False errors occasionally and will probably disable the option for some error types, since it is no logic to ignore it.

ShowHidden parameter shows only temporary hidden errors.

I changed the search error page http://www.sdms.si:92/wikitree/ShowErrors.htm, so you can see ignored and hidden errors and even undo the action.
