I flagged a post for mod attention.

A few days later i went back and tried to flag again (as if there is one i missed an indication i'd previously flagged).

I was only told that i'd previously flagged a post once i tried to submit the flag.

Could we have an indication that the post has been flagged already?

I'm not sure if you could re-flag, so i'm proposing one of 2 things:

If you can re-flag, then could there be some way of indicating on the post that you've already flagged it, maybe changing the flag link to say 're-flag', then when opening it, the reason you previously flagged being greyed out.

If you can't re-flag, then should the flag link just be disabled/hidden.

I think rarely happens to flag a post you've already flagged, and it's not big deal... it will save you 1 click per month? – Maxim Krizhanovsky Aug 25 '11 at 10:45
It's definitely not a big deal, just thought i'd request it to add it to the pile (near the bottom). – George Duckett Aug 25 '11 at 10:46
Hmm, it seems that you already found the notification that you've flagged the post previously. You can re-flag for a different reason than you flagged for previously, so disabling/hiding the link altogether isn't a good option. – Cody Gray Aug 26 '11 at 4:16
Maybe it should be changed to say 're-flag'? Or maybe on the box to choose flag reason it should have a symbol indicating the reason you previously gave. – George Duckett Aug 26 '11 at 6:53
Reflagging doesn't work, at least in the case where the "other" option is used. See: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/184809/… – Monica Cellio Jun 18 '13 at 20:23
