Show that a post has been flagged as spam or needing moderator attention

This post refers to a global indication of a question being flagged and has been declined, however would it be possible to have a way of showing which questions you have flagged?

I often find myself looking at the same question more then once, and can't remember if I have already flagged a question or answer. Some visual indication somewhere that you have already done so should also help with running out of flags for the day.

Edit: As Kyle pointed out the system doesn't allow you to flag twice when you try and submit. I am keeping this as a feature-request since others indicated they would like this feature.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

A "flagged by me but declined by a moderator" indicator would be nice too. – bdonlan Jul 29 '09 at 16:13

When in doubt, flag it again. If you've already flagged it it won't let you do it a second time, so you won't run out of flags flagging it multiple times.

I also submit that if you flag often enough to need a visual indication of whether or not you've flagged a post (and are worried about running out of flags) you're probably overusing the feature. :-)

Fair comment. I am actually careful with using them, but on SU at the moment there is quite a few duplicates that pop up. Thanks Kyle, I only now released it will warn you once you have clicked the Flag Post link. I tested without trying to submit again. – BinaryMisfit Jul 29 '09 at 17:41

I'd like this too. As Kyle notes, you can't flag a post twice, so there's no danger in trying... But it's wasted time typing up a reason for the flag the second time.

And Kyle, some of us are very, very absent-minded... ;-)

Note that I'm not in favor of globally-displayed "flagged" indicators. We tried that, it created nothing but strife. This indicator should be visible to the person who flagged, moderators, and no one else.

+1 For visibility. This should not be global – BinaryMisfit Jul 29 '09 at 17:43
