I have noticed over the past few months some inconsistency with certain flags. If I flag PSQ with the closeflag "offtopic: missing context" and then it is edited later to be okay, I have had both flags declined (recently) and marked as helpful (previously). Since the flag came before the edit, shouldn't the flag still be marked as helpful? I think this should be the case since flags don't work like votes to close where you can retract the vote. Once you flag, it is their until a mod looks at it which could be many hours or even the next day later.
It appears that some mods check the revision history with the flags and others check the current version with the flag. Shouldn't the flag always be compared with the time of event not the current status?
I have only had a handful of flags declined so it isn't a big deal at the moment, but I would like some clarification of how something of this nature will be handled in the future.
From What is the difference between disputed and declined flags?, it states that decline means mod intervention and disputed mean a 10k+ user disagrees.
However, What is a disputed flag? says that the flag tool for 10k+ users has been removed.
I guess an add on then does disputed only mean a low quality post has been edited which automatically disputes a low quality flag? Because, I have a few disputed flag and haven't really used that flag so I am not sure how I would get a disputed flag then now.
What is the real meaning of declined or disputed??
