I flagged a posted for moderator recently that was marked as a duplicated. After the post was marked, the user made significant improvements to the post. Because of this, I flagged it as "other" and explained that I felt the dup should removed from the post. My flag was declined stating
"declined - flags should only be used to make moderators aware of content that requires their intervention"
I don't want to be flagging things that ought not be flagged, so what is the correct action for me to take in the future?
