What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

Moderators can choose between dismissing flags as valid or invalid. I understand the choice changes the weight of the users' flag in the future, but I wonder if flagging as valid will change anything to the relevant post.

For example, non-3kers can flag questions with any valid close reason. Does dismissing a flag as valid apply my super-close-vote as suggested by the flagger?

You guys need a sandbox SE. Although that would present a problem to anyone who wanted to make an SE site about sandboxes.... –  Pops Feb 16 '11 at 14:50
    
@Popular I guess that's what per-site metas really are about! –  badp Feb 16 '11 at 14:54

non-3kers can flag questions with common close reasons. Does dismissing a flag as valid apply my super-close-vote with that close reason?
