Our Discourse site SWI-Prolog needs very little moderator interaction.
Recently a flag was created and I was working on it but could not claim the flag to take it out of the queue. As such a few hours later another admin accepted the flag which resulted in a different outcome than intended by me.
It would be nice if there were a way such as a new status
assigned to or
in process so that users with the ability to process flags could claim the flag so that others could not resolve the flag.
Obviously this would need a way for the flag to be put back into the queue for various reasons such as the moderator left the site, etc.
