- Show the flag response in an inbox notification – more visible to a new user, but less consistent with how flag responses are normally communicated.
I agree with this suggestion.
I rarely flag and '< 15' will never apply to me but I still have to remember if/when/where I flagged and then dig through the site's user profile to see if/how it was resolved.
Since, so far, I always accept the outcome a simple single notification after it's resolved would be helpful.
More? - One memorable example of when this would be most helpful:
In one instance a site's moderator closed a question as a dupe of another - where the problem lay was that they had reversed which was a dupe of the other and then went offline.
I raised a flag (after writing them a comment, and waiting) explaining that people were waiting to answer the question rather than post answers to the question that was likely to be closed - and the correct location, being closed as a dupe, wouldn't accept answers since it was closed.
It took a couple of hours for someone with the ability to override the action to become available and deal with the flag. They reversed the duplication link (making the newer question a duplicate of the older one) and migrated the answers from the new question to the old question - Applause.
A notification would have been great since it would have saved me going back to the site and locating the flag to see the outcome. I don't know if a clue on the page would have been as enlightening since if I went there I'd see the deed was done (assuming that they agreed with the flag). Once it's fixed (or not) I don't need to know again (but could scroll my Notification History if I was keen to) and a 'disolving pop-up' on the webpage is sometimes missed when mobile browsing (too quick to hide, and might be offscreen).
It's good to get feedback about your feedback, to know when you're helping (or should be studying the help more carefully). I've had to mention the upper right menu and how the exact rules can differ in word or practice to a few people on several occasions.
Anything that can smooth things and make everything easier and approachable/welcoming is useful - access to the results of one's own flags seems a given (and an oversight), especially if it's rejected and suggests to read something ...
