I just tried to flag this closed issue (the problem happened again) and received a 500 error on meta.
Should the flag button be disabled, or should flags be allowed on closed topics, or ?
I wonder if this was due to a deployment issue. Meta is deployed very frequently throughout the day. Can you try again?
No 500 error this time.
I receive this notice:
You are not permitted to view the requested resource. so, I assume that it was flagged?
No, that would be a 403 (permission error). So I don’t think it was.
Right, but I can’t tell if I can’t see the topic I created (which is most likely) the case.
In any case, I’m guessing that either a better error message is due, or the preventing me from trying to flag a closed issue.
@techapj can you make sure that flagging a closed topic is possible?
Are you flagging a post, or via the topic flag button?
I’m clicking the Flag button at the bottom of a closed topic, choosing “Something else” and then entering in a brief reason why I’m flagging the topic. (in this case, suggesting that it be re-opened as the initial problem is back)
I am unable to repro this on latest version.
I just tried to reply to

I don’t know if the message was created
I flagged that post as TL1 user, chose “Something Else” entered the message and I was successfully able to do so. The post was flagged and new message was created.
Okay, I can repro the issue. I was clicking on flag icon below the post instead of the Flag button at the bottom of a topic.
Is this resolved @techapj?
