Flag declined after a day

I flagged an answer that was made 8 hours ago from my flagging and was missing half of it.

use this code:


So I flagged it and after 2 hours I saw someone had added code to it:

use this code:

<link media="only screen and (max-device-width: 480px)" href="small-device.css" type= "text/css" rel="stylesheet">

<link media="screen and (min-device-width: 481px)" href="not-small-device.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet">


A day later my vote gets declined, thus lowering my flag weight.

Problem is that I didn't flag the edited post, I flagged the first post, which was incomplete. But moderator/admin thought I flagged some later edit I guess.

Can you post a link to the original question? –  squillman Sep 7 '11 at 21:36

I've had this a few times as well. But hey, mods are humans. Related: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/105391/… –  BalusC Sep 7 '11 at 21:40
@Billy : when I flag something, I don't really wanna have to go back for each flag hoping they haven't updated anything, so I do not have to reevaluate my flags over and over again –  Jaanus Sep 7 '11 at 21:47
Jaanus: That's why I said "related", not "duplicate" :) –  Billy ONeal Sep 7 '11 at 21:50
You may want to comment with a "hey you forgot something or the post got mangled" rather than flagging in these cases. –  Matthew Read Sep 7 '11 at 22:04
Or, if it's a question about HTML (or any other language that uses <>) and it looks like the poster simply omitted the code, you can click the edit button and see if it's actually there but hidden. –  mmyers Sep 7 '11 at 22:21
If you were a bit more seasoned, you'd have realized that the poster screwed up his code formatting. You then would have edited to fix. That would be the proper action to take here. –  Won't Sep 8 '11 at 13:33
@Won't proper action would not be posting pictures of you eating worms –  Jaanus Sep 8 '11 at 13:35
@Jaanus: Mmmm, worms. With piss. –  Won't Sep 8 '11 at 14:18
@Won't damn, better drink my own piss –  Jaanus Sep 8 '11 at 14:26
