On this question:

  1. I visited the question.
  2. I closed it as a dupe.
  3. I attempted to also flag it with a merge request.
  4. I was met with an error saying that the question was put on hold since I loaded the page, which is strange because I've gone through the close → immediate flag sequence many, many times in the past with no issue.
  5. I reloaded the page.
  6. I continued to be met with the same error, which seems broken since I've reloaded the page since it was put on hold.

Here is a video showing reload → flag attempt (yellow circle indicates mouse click):

PS: I re-opened that question because I realized it was subtly different. Just... don't worry about that.

  • That must be related with this one

  • @rene It crossed my mind but... who knows. I can at least tell you that both reports boil down to me being way too excited about this animated gif screen recorder.

  • Seen that a while ago, but the flag dialog can be opened about two minutes after the question is closed. I assumed it's some kind of weird grace period in which one isn't allowed to flag. And it was fully reproduced for every question I closed. (Think it was couple of weeks ago.) Commented Aug 30, 2016 at 22:07
