I raised a flag on a question on the main Puzzling site on August 10th (2 weeks ago today). One of my subsequent flags has been marked as helpful, but the flag from 2 weeks ago has not yet been addressed. Should I keep waiting? If not, what can I do to move the process forward?

    $\begingroup$ What kind of flag is it? Custom flags can have a much longer response time than simple No Longer Needed ones. (Having said that, I just checked and my oldest pending flag is an NLN from June 14) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It is in fact a custom flag @bobble $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ 2 weeks? I raised a custom flag on 6 Feb that was only handled on 9 Jun. $\endgroup$ Sep 7, 2022 at 16:33
  • $\begingroup$ @Randal'Thor I didn't really have a baseline. Probably could have waited longer, I suppose. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Depends on the flag. I'd certainly expect almost all flags to be resolved in less than two weeks, unless it's something really tricky maybe that requires CM escalation to resolve or a lot of mod discussion to decide what to do. Was just commenting to show the problem is even bigger than what you've noticed. $\endgroup$ Sep 7, 2022 at 17:30

Sorry for the delay! I can't speak for the other mods, but I've been a bit busy recently. I'd occasionally handled some of the easier flags, but hadn't gone through the queue recently.

To answer your question, "what can I do to move the process forward?"... well, this meta post was a reasonable course of action. And it worked - I've now handled the flag in question (as well as all other outstanding flags)!
