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

I thought one could only flag a post once, and that after that it should display:

But my flag summary shows that I've managed to flag a question twice (I didn't realise I had):

Has flagging recently been changed to allow more than one flag, is this a bug, or have I missed something?

You can flag for spam and something else, like on one post I had first flag as NAA and then, after stumbling on another post of the same user, I realized it was spam. So I came back on the post and flagged it as spam, and the 2 flags were active at the same moment. – Hugo Dozois Apr 17 '13 at 12:51

You can reflag after the previous flag was handled, I assume that is what happened in your example.

Ah, I see, that makes sense (of course). Thanks, I'll accept shortly. – Danny Beckett Apr 17 '13 at 12:00

No, the rule is still the same. But in fact it happened when you flagged the post for second time; the first flagged was already handled by 10K+ users.
