Hmm… looking back at my screenshot, it does seem a bit grey, although when I checked the changes (the pencil icon indicates 1 edit) the only one there was to download the image.
Since the flag icon shows up on anything that has been flagged - whether or not that flag was eventually upheld - I’m not sure what I should have been looking at.
If this post was indeed already hidden, what’s supposed to be indicating that to me? Just greyishness? I was expecting
a crossed-out eyeball
a visibility change entry in the edits list
In addition, even if the post was already hidden, shouldn’t I have been able to re-flag as a confirmation? Shouldn’t I have been easily able to get to spammer deletion from where I was looking at the spam?
For the admin view, the content of a hidden post is still visible but greyed out like the username, etc rather than displaying the ‘View ignored content’ click-to-see mask a normal user would see. It doesn’t create an edit revision, but you do get the option in the post wrench to ‘unhide’ it which could be a way to double-check?
My one is still in the review queue, and those two flags are the ones that tipped it over the edge to be hidden initially. To be honest, I’m not sure what’s happened to your one if it wasn’t in the queue. Did someone handle it previously and ‘Agree and keep post hidden’?
Though we are having an explore of our moderation screens and flow at the moment so this conversation/feedback is quite timely.
The ‘default’ view that most people see is the initial ‘pending’ one with all the unhandled flags in, but there’s options in there for lots of other things too depending on what you’re looking for. I use ‘everything’ quite a lot to see what I’ve missed when I’m not here.
Could these be more intuitive? Perhaps moving the moderation history into the flag modal?
