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

This question incorrectly got closed as duplicate. I voted to reopen, but rather than wait for the required numbers to pass by and agree to reopen, I flagged it and asked for it to be reopened.

Meanwhile the OP re-asked the question, and got an answer. Someone noticed this, and has voted to close it again, as it is now a duplicate (of a different question than last time). I agree, so voted to close again. Again, rather than wait for the votes on an old question, I tried to flag it so a mod could close it. But it won't let me, as I have already flagged it.

This question asks basically the same thing as I'm asking, but doesn't explain why, once a mod has dealt with the first issue, the flags can't be cleared so that you can re assign for mods attention a second time.
