It's either just me, or there's no "other" option for flagging. There is the box to notify moderators, but that's only for content that requires their direct attention. We should get an "other" option if the user flagging the question can't find the proper reason to flag the question.

  • Are you talking about close flags or all flags as a whole?

So... who exactly do you think sees flags other than moderators?

While it's true that ordinary users can review Very Low Quality and Not-An-Answer flags, for the most part, (including those), they go straight to moderators. That's the whole point. There's already an 'other' option - it merely specifies that it's for 'Moderator Attention' because, y'know, who else would it go to but us?

Use it wisely, use it frequently, use it sparingly, and use it well. It exists so you can make it clear that a question requires the attention of others who have more power than you to do something about it.

(Please do not use the 'other' mod flag if all the question or answer needs is an edit, for example. You can do that. Etc.)

    Well, who are you proposing sending these 'other' flags too? All flags are, by their very definition meant for moderators. Jun 29 '14 at 1:35

  • @DatEpicCoderGuyWhoPrograms you're going to have to provide a specific example at this point, because I'll be honest and tell you that I have no clue what you're talking about here. Jun 29 '14 at 10:37
