I flagged to close a question and then found the same question in the Low Quality review queue. I expected to be able to open up the close modal and it recognize that I've flagged it already and count that as a review, but instead it didn't and I have no other valid choice than to skip it.

the close modal

Is there any way we can make it so that occurrences like this will recognize that I've already voted to close it and count that as a review?

My guess, you clicked the close link and the question was closed by @Matt at near the same time. So Matt's action, being a moderator, cancels yours.

Or @Matt closed the question before you got to it after you clicked the "review" link.

Probably more of a coincidental timing thing.

  • Makes sense. I'd like to have some confirmation before accepting though :) Feb 22, 2015 at 19:18
  • Well the question is closed by Matt and no other names are listed. So, clearly Matt performed the close before anyone else flagged it. If you actually flagged it for closure, your username would appear with Matt's. And there is no "close" link if a question has already been closed. So..... has to be a timing thing.
