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

I just discovered that it is possible to get a post in the Low Quality Posts review queue that you have already flagged for closing, making reviewing that item impossible. Obviously, I don't want to 'Looks Good' something that I know should be closed, but at the same time I cannot 'Recommend Close' something I have already flagged leaving the only option being to skip the post.

Can the queue be changed so that it does not show posts which you have already flagged?

Existing logic prevents you from seeing a post you've voted to close, but ignores flags (mostly). I guess I can't think of a good reason to have you reviewing a post you've already flagged though, regardless of the type of flag. – Shog9 Aug 14 '13 at 0:39
I noticed this a while back as well. Rare but annoying. – Mansfield Aug 16 '13 at 17:23
@9Shogsa-Shogging AFAIU. Flagging is actually calling for attention and action. While casting a close vote is that actual action. Right? – Bleeding Fingers Dec 30 '13 at 20:31
@Mansfield Can easily be found on beta sites. – Bleeding Fingers Dec 30 '13 at 20:32
@Shog9 any chance to bump this bug internally, two years later? Not critical bug, but it keeps bugging people. – Shadow Wizard Sep 17 '15 at 13:32
