I was wondering what a good ratio of helpful flags to declined flags is.
Currently, I have raised 17 flags (on SO), all of them were deemed helpful. So it seems that I am on the right track. But what I am currently trying to figure out: Should I flag more aggressively? This might result in declined or at least disputed flags. So, in order to make the work for moderators easier, and not accidentally harder, what is a good way to go? Is raising some flags that get declined bad, or something one should accept?
Eventually some people can share their flagging experience and provide some examples of 'good' and 'bad' ratios of declined to helpful flags?
Actually, I was surprised that I could not find a topic on this already. Tried finding it with quite some search terms, but got no result.
tl;dr: is it better to flag more aggressive and also get some declined flags, or is it better just to flag posts where I am almost certain the flag will be accepted. What is the best way in order to actually help the mods?
