My two recent flags were declined but I think they were valid ones.
- A Q was duplicate of 2 questions and in such cases we flag it to mod but after I flagged the Q, OP deleted it and my flag got declined:
May 24 at 6:30 declined - Question is deleted now by OP
- A Q was spam but OP deleted the Q after I flagged it and my flag got declined:
yesterday declined - deleted by post author
Now, when I try to flag something, the system gives warning:
Your recent flag was declined - please review it before flagging this post!
My questions are
- Were these flags handled by System or Mods?
- If mods then, weren't my flags supposed to be marked as helpful instead of declined?
