Some flags, like NAA and VLQ flags, are by default delayed by half an hour (?) before entering the mod flag queue. On bigger sites, this is theoretically enough time to allow the content to be handled in the site's review queue.
On smaller sites, though, things are very rarely completely handled by review, and the flags end up getting shown to moderators anyway. Just with a time delay.
If I, as a moderator, am around, I'd really like to be able to handle everything from one spot. Sure, I could go through the low-quality-posts review queue if I wanted to, but it's much harder to triage what needs handled first (low hanging fruit first, anyone?) from review. It's easier to handle flags from the flag queue.
So, can we have a checkbox in the sidebar for this?
It would do what it says on the tin, show all the active flags on the site.
