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

Possible Duplicates:
Ability to change close reason before it gets closed
Allow editing of moderator flag comment

I was recently in one thread that needed to be migrated to the Webmasters Stack Exchange site. I clicked Super User in the flagging box accidentally instead and I want to edit it. Is there any way to edit my flag choice?

The scenario doesn't solely depend on your selection, so consider that either:

  • A) enough people will also flag it, then it would seemingly be relevant, or
  • B) enough people will flag it for elsewhere, which would make it seemingly relevant there.

The bottom line is that the majority will eventually decide.

So won't anyone punish me for flagging it with bad information ? – genesis Jul 7 '11 at 8:43
The thing that can happen is : flag is mark as invalid, you will just lose some flag weight. No consequence on reputation or so. – M'vy Jul 7 '11 at 8:44
For a close-vote? I'm pretty sure they only tar and feather the repeat offenders providing invalid-flags. – Grant Thomas Jul 7 '11 at 8:45
@M'vy I'm sure that doesn't count for close-vote flagging. – Grant Thomas Jul 7 '11 at 8:47
Well maybe repeated bad flagging may be sanctioned, but not one. – M'vy Jul 7 '11 at 9:30
