I just discovered that it is possible to get a post in the Low Quality Posts review queue that you have already flagged for closing, making reviewing that item impossible. Obviously, I don't want to 'Looks Good' something that I know should be closed, but at the same time I cannot 'Recommend Close' something I have already flagged leaving the only option being to skip the post.

Can the queue be changed so that it does not show posts which you have already flagged?

    Existing logic prevents you from seeing a post you've voted to close, but ignores flags (mostly). I guess I can't think of a good reason to have you reviewing a post you've already flagged though, regardless of the type of flag. – Shog9 Aug 14 '13 at 0:39

    I noticed this a while back as well. Rare but annoying. – Mansfield Aug 16 '13 at 17:23
  • @9Shogsa-Shogging AFAIU. Flagging is actually calling for attention and action. While casting a close vote is that actual action. Right? – Bleeding Fingers Dec 30 '13 at 20:31

    @Mansfield Can easily be found on beta sites. – Bleeding Fingers Dec 30 '13 at 20:32

    @Shog9 any chance to bump this bug internally, two years later? Not critical bug, but it keeps bugging people. – Shadow Keeps Social Distance Sep 17 '15 at 13:32
  • Could you at least make the "You flagged this question for closure" more apparent? At first I thought it was a browser bug that I got the selection of deletion reasons without visible checkboxes. – phk Jan 15 '17 at 0:41
  • So any chance this will get fixed / changed? – Luciano Jun 6 '17 at 15:12
  • @Shog9 Five years later, any chance of fixing this? – Gaurang Tandon Mar 6 '18 at 9:51
  • If / when someone has time, it'll get fixed, @GaurangTandon. No idea if / when that'll be. – Shog9 Mar 6 '18 at 20:29

This should be fixed in the next build. I updated the filter for the Low Quality review queue to exclude items flagged by the reviewer. This filter was also updated on some other queues that were missing it.
