I already flagged this question as Low Quality, and posted a comment to that effect.

But then the OP asked why it was low quality, so I searched and found an exact duplicate.

When trying to flag as a dupe, I get the Post already flagged error.

I don't know whether this is something that can be changed when flagging for a different reason?

Or is there something else I should have done?


No, once you've flagged to close for any reason there's no going back.

Here's the feature request to allow you to change that vote (it's currently the number one status-declined feature request on Meta).

Here's one to allow you to swap close reasons.

  • Thanks for that Lance; I can see the questions are related, but that feature request is to be able to completely rescind a flag. I'm referring to swapping flags. – Danny Beckett Mar 20 '13 at 0:10
  • I was thinking the idea would be to rescind, then revote. There is no way to swap flags to a different reason. – Lance Roberts Mar 20 '13 at 0:11
  • Yeah that makes sense... ok, status-declined it is! I'll accept soon. – Danny Beckett Mar 20 '13 at 0:12

    @DannyBeckett, here's a link for a swap feature request. – Lance Roberts Mar 20 '13 at 0:36
  • Nice! Feel free to close this question as a dupe of that (ironic really). – Danny Beckett Mar 20 '13 at 0:37
