Going through my flag history, I noticed a pattern of (perhaps excessively?) using
Other -> [Some reason] when flagging for what was essentially NAA. None of them declined, though, but I figured I might be putting stuff in the diamond moderator queue that perhaps didn't need go there.
So I started to move to just use NAA unless I really thought an explanation was required for the flag to be accepted. But as I just saw this declined, I started to wonder whether I was right.
I don't get many flags declined, so I'm not really worried about that, per se. I just don't like wasting my and the reviewers time flagging uselessly, and I don't like to see poor content stay on the site either.
Therefore I'm tempted to only flag Thanks! and elaboratorive questions and similar really obvious as NAA and then go back to letting answers like the one that spawned this question and other, potentially borderline cases go to the
Other -> Custom queue.
But before I do so, I would like to know:
- Do the
Other -> Customgo to different review queues, or do they end up in the same place with the diamond mods?
- If there is a difference, what would the mods prefer? (Yes, I have seen How do I properly use the Not an Answer flag?)
