Enhancement: notified to moderator flag

It would be helpful if posts which one has previously flagged to the moderators were marked as such.

The ‘flag’ should be visible to at least be the user(s) who flagged a post. A potential extension to that could be to all users so that people are aware that a concern has been raised already.

Such functionality would be similar to another leading forum technology - Discourse.

Superusers are not staff, but they do have a direct line of communication into the business in order to raise issues, concerns and feedback from the community.

Why? What purpose would it achieve.

Re: Enhancement: notified to moderator flag

1. Remind me what I’ve already referred - sometimes I forget

2. Indicate to others that a post has been flagged and does not need flagging again

It’s a feature on other forums I use (and moderate) and is found to be very useful.

Re: Enhancement: notified to moderator flag

I think if this was such a problem with reported posts the mods would have requested such an enhancement.
However, we’re not drowning in reports and it doesn’t really matter if something gets reported more than once.
