I’m still a long way from being able to cast close votes on SO (my rep is around 40% of the required amount). When I see something that looks wrong I generally flag it (usually as not a real question, duplicate, or needs to be somewhere else).
I get the impression that my flag weight is relatively high (around 557). Does this mean that I’m flagging too often or is it ok to flag whenever something seems like it’s in the wrong place? Should I instead be ignoring the questions and assuming that close/delete votes will be cast by members with sufficient rep?
If I am doing the right thing, then what’s the appropriate action when I do eventually get to the point where I can cast close votes? Do you just vote to close, or vote to close and flag, or is this a nonsense question that will make sense when I get there?
