Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The past few days I've noticed I have a button to review moderator flags on the stackoverflow toolbar, and I'm assuming it's because there's over 200-300 flags and my rep is fairly high.

I looked through a few but quickly got tired of this because I usually have to go into the question itself to review the question, and switching pages takes time and destroys my attention span.

Would it be possible to make page to review moderator flags the same as the page that reviews edits, where it actually shows the full content of the question/answer the flag is about?

That way I could just scroll through questions and help out with ones I think I understand, instead of having to browse to each question in a new tab and waste time on ones that I don't know about and would prefer to leave for someone else. It would make me more willing to help out with moderator flags when they get backed up, and make the flag review process faster.

There's an arrow in the upper left corner of each post on the flags page that you can click to expand the post and see its full contents.

Flagged Post Expansion

This works much faster than waiting for an entire page load.

=O I had no idea idea you could do that, thank you! – Rachel Mar 30 '12 at 18:01
@Rachel No problem. That arrow is tiny and easy to overlook. :) – Bill the Lizard Mar 30 '12 at 18:12
