This is either a bug or an unknown feature I'm unaware of but when I try to flag an answer, the "not an answer" option is grayed out and a message saying "you have already raised this type of flag", even though I never did for that answer. See the following image:

What I'm seeing when trying to flag

Is there something I'm missing? Is it possible I can't flag it as "not an answer" because someone else already did?

    Can confirm: same happens to me. I cannot flag as not an answer. I haven't done anything on the site yet today, and that answer is ~1 hour old.

  • I can flag the answer above as not an answer though (or at least the options looks like it's available, didn't actually try).

  • could be a bug, maybe if someone already flagged it as "not an answer" it acts as if you did.

  • Yea, going to assume something like that, because that specific answer was in the low quality review queue for me just now.

This was in fact a regression. It will be fixed very soon. Details are here: Flag dialog tells me I've flagged a post I've never seen before


Because you reviewed the post in the review queue and recommended deletion.

Although it's not clear, this counts sorta like a NAA flag, and hence excludes you from flagging the post further.

  • @JohnoBoy You must have done though, you are listed as a reviewer of the post here.

  • Edit: Deleted my incorrect comment. But I recommended deletion only after I couldn't flag it.

  • @JohnoBoy You're right. I'll investigate further.

  • See also my comments, I could not flag it, then after that went through the queue and cast a delete vote that way.

  • @Arperum This could be a bug. I'll report back if I hear anything.

  • @fredley Another answer that I didn't interact with in any way, still can't cast NAA vote. It's also in the first post review queue, and can't flag through there either.
