My answer to question Do desktop computers catch fire (often)? has one reference:

enter image description here

No very much, I agree (and I clearly state that other figures are assumptions).

Is this an auto-generated flag with a threshold that my answer does not meet, or did a person overlook the link?

BTW I have now made the link longer to have it stand out better.

[Edited to add]

Now OddThinking adds a comment saying "This is an answer based purely on a theoretical model" which is indeed the case: I complete overlooked the word estimated in the abstract. On further investigation, the report is not even very clear on how the estimates were obtained.

The answer is now deleted.

My question remains:

Is this an auto-generated flag with a threshold that my answer does not meet, or did a person [initially] overlook the link?

I've added the banner, it's not automatic.

I understand the banner is misleading, but we add it on questions that do not have enough references. The reason is simple: you need to support your answer with references, not simply add a reference to tick a checkbox off a list, if you know what I mean.

We've requested a change of wording here: Add a "more citations needed" notice
