Sometimes, the main radio button for "it needs moderator attention" in the flagging dialog doesn't get selected even when one of the needs-mod-attention reasons is chosen.

empty radio button next to "it needs diamond moderator attention

Submitting flags when that button is unchecked fails sometimes, but not always. I don't see it often enough to have figured out the pattern, if there is one. Can the dialog be edited so that selecting a subcategory button automatically selects the parent button as well?

A fix has been checked in and will be deployed this evening.


A way to reproduce:

  • Click "it doesn't belong here"
  • Click "back"
  • Click "low quality"
