Is there a way to know which of my flags were marked as invalid?

+1 join the club. I know for sure When i flag this as duplicate it is going to be marked as valid :P . Duplicate 1 Help me find the bad flag Duplicate 2 How do I know if my flag on a question was a worthy one? I know it is going to be closed as duplicate as The powers that Be do not want to provide this feature. why? God only knows. – Aditya P Apr 29 '11 at 8:51
@AdityaGameProgrammer I tried to find if it was asked but couldn't :/ – Oscar Mederos Apr 29 '11 at 8:53
That's can imagine when i tried searching for Do Dismissed flags cost same amount as before the 500 mark? the op of the similar post had to post a link to his as it was hard to search. – Aditya P Apr 29 '11 at 9:02

Generally speaking, when a moderator takes an action on a post, the flag is dismissed as "valid". So theoretically if you don't see this:

then it could have been dismissed as "invalid".

However, there have been some interesting flagging issues of late. I think we should have a clear "Flag dismissed as _" comment on each flag. How can we find out whether we've been flagging appropriately if there's no way to tell?

so invalid flags won't appear? – Oscar Mederos Apr 29 '11 at 17:21
@Oscar: They will still appear, but the action taken (the part in the red rectangle) will be absent because no action was taken. – Ghost User Apr 29 '11 at 17:22
Oh, I see! I think that will help me a little more, although I agree with you about finding out wheter we've been flagging appropiately ;) – Oscar Mederos Apr 29 '11 at 17:29
I've had several flags where no action was taken, but the flag was not marked invalid either... But in general, your answer is correct. – Lorem Ipsum Jun 17 '11 at 21:17
