Use this tag for tools/issues about flags or flagging of posts or chat messages. Flags alert about quality issues on content, when the flagger lacks sufficient reputation to deal with the problem directly.

See "Flag posts" in the Help Center.

Flagging posts (questions/answers) can be done via:

  • The web site, sometimes aided by tools found here on Stack Apps.
  • The official (i)phone apps.
  • The API. See the various /flags/ routes.


Flagging chat messages is included under this tag for now, due to the low volume of flagging related questions here.
