Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

When someone is reviewing a flagged post, does he see the current state of the flagged post or does he see the version of the post which existed when the post was flagged?

He sees the current state of the flagged post.

If the flag doesn't seem to make sense, check the revision history of the post.

Shouldn't he at least be given a warning/note that the flagged post he is looking at has been changed since the time it was flagged. – user93353 Dec 6 '12 at 17:57
Probably . . . . – Robert Harvey Dec 6 '12 at 17:59
I was under the impression that a flag gets automatically "disputed" when a post has been edited since the flag has been cast. Am I wrong here? – Spontifixus Dec 6 '12 at 18:56
@Spontifixus: Could be. So you're saying it doesn't matter? – Robert Harvey Dec 6 '12 at 18:57
Seems I was only partly right there: Only "Very Low Quality" flags get disputed when the post is being edited - so never mind... – Spontifixus Dec 6 '12 at 19:03
