Is there a way to know which of my flags were marked as invalid?

Generally speaking, when a moderator takes an action on a post, the flag is dismissed as "valid". So theoretically if you don't see this:

then it could have been dismissed as "invalid".

However, there have been some interesting flagging issues of late. I think we should have a clear "Flag dismissed as ___" comment on each flag. How can we find out whether we've been flagging appropriately if there's no way to tell?

  • so invalid flags won't appear? – Oscar Mederos Apr 29 '11 at 17:21
  • @Oscar: They will still appear, but the action taken (the part in the red rectangle) will be absent because no action was taken. – Ghost User Apr 29 '11 at 17:22
  • Oh, I see! I think that will help me a little more, although I agree with you about finding out wheter we've been flagging appropiately ;) – Oscar Mederos Apr 29 '11 at 17:29

    I've had several flags where no action was taken, but the flag was not marked invalid either... But in general, your answer is correct. – Lorem Ipsum Jun 17 '11 at 21:17
