There is this question Can a flag that attracts moderator action be treated as invalid?
which deals with the general idea behind the validity of any flag.
What i am asking is the specific flag option when we hit the flag button. The area in which we address the moderator regarding the type of attention that is required. Can this flag be dismissed as invalid? Meaning who ever raised it Did not need to and it did not warrant a mods attention?
For instance this topic https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/questions/73667/mobile-games-paid-vs-ad-supported I was unable to define the exact nature of the problem, as i was unable to find its duplicate here. IMHO it needed a mods attention. Hence i flagged it using the inform moderator flag stating that it could be migrated to gamedev.stackexchange.com - the idea in itself is valid. and it is valid topic. Mod attention was required and the topic was closed as duplicate.
Leaving me miffed as to why this type flag was dismissed as invalid. specifically when this was not defined In absolutes as off topic or duplicate or does not belong here.
