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 have flagged questions for moderator attention to delete them, but still I didn't get any response. Even my friend has old ID then me on stackoverflow and the same thing happen to him. So is there any time limit to delete the question if not then moderator should have to response for that?

Flagging a question for deletion does not guarantee that a question will be deleted. The moderator who examines your flag still gets to make the decision whether or not to delete. Moderators can mark your flag valid (indicating that it has merit), even if they choose not to take action on your flag. They are not obligated to respond to your flag in any other way. There is no time limit for acting on moderator flags, although they usually get looked at within 24 hours. – Robert Harvey Jul 7 '11 at 16:57

If you visit your Flagging Summary* you can find a list of the dispositions for your flags and whether or not they were deemed valid, invalid, disputed, or if they are awaiting review.

If they are valid then what it mean and what if they are invalid? – avirk Jul 7 '11 at 16:46
Valid means a moderator agreed with your flag. Invalid means they disagreed. Disputed means other flaggers disagreed. – user7116 Jul 7 '11 at 16:51
So can we re-flagged the same question. – avirk Jul 7 '11 at 16:52
If it was deemed Valid then a moderator will have taken the appropriate action, but it may not be what you wanted to happen. If they deemed it Invalid, it likely won't get acted upon. However, if you strongly feel a certain question or answer needs attention yet a moderator has disagreed, you can post a link to the question/answer on Meta and ask for information as to why things happened like they did. – user7116 Jul 7 '11 at 16:55
