In regards to Flagged Posts tools:


I can't for the life of me see what I'm meant to do.

All it says is:

Where should I start? Start at the top. This list is ordered by a combination of number (and type) of issues, the reputation of the user who posted, and the flag history and reputation of the flagging user.

Ok so I start at the top, then what?

    May be you can find answer on this post -> When do I flag, and which flag do I use? – YOU May 9 '11 at 16:13
  • Do people just pick vaguely related questions now and mark as duplicates for fun? How is this a duplicate? I thought as a 10k user on SO I got a few more privileges, I'm not asking when I should flag, I'm asking what I should be doing on the flag review page I have access to which seems to indicate I should be doing something. – Tom May 9 '11 at 16:18
  • Well, first, there is no fun on voting as duplicate. I closed that as duplicate because I think then what in your post very close to that. – YOU May 9 '11 at 16:23
  • Ok I've read the provided link, unfortunately it doesn't answer my question in any way. – Tom May 9 '11 at 16:26

    It does answer your question. The part that you're missing is that what you're supposed to do from that page is determine whether or not you agree with the flag. If you agree, you flag it again. If not, you ignore it and do nothing. The "duplicate" that @YOU proposes attempts to answer the question of "which flags in the list should I agree with, and which should I ignore?" – Cody Gray May 10 '11 at 8:50

You can go through those flagged posts and see if there's anything you can do to improve things. Granted, 10K users don't have a lot of options for dealing with these, but there are some; in particular, you can flag again. For more, take a look at this question.
