I just flagged a post for the first time (spam), and clicked submit from the div popup.

But then I wasn't sure that the postback has been successful, as nothing happened on the main page. Could the flag button be highlighted or disabled to show that you have already flagged the question?


If you attempt to "flag" on a question/answer you have already flagged, you will be informed that you have already flagged such question/answer.

But, that is not to say the process could be improved some how. I have a feeling Jeff would decline this feature request, but he always continues to surprise us.

    Still, the OP's proposal would be more intuitive. +1'd it Jan 27 '10 at 12:04

    So why didn't you leave a comment instead of an answer then?

This would require many, many queries per page load per logged on users.

    The requested feature seems to be implemented for comments: When I hover over a comment I had flagged before, the flag (and vote up) icons are not show, so I know I have already flagged it. Aren't there more comments that questions?
