What reasons could a question be flagged for?

Your question can be flagged by anyone in the community for a number of reasons, including: 

  • It was plagiarized or consisted primarily of quoted material: Much of your post was quoted directly from an online source with little to no original thoughts or ideas interspersed. For more information check out our article on: Why was my post moderated for Plagiarism? – Packback
  • It was a duplicate of another question posted earlier in the community: Oops! This question already exists somewhere in the community and may have a few responses already. For more information check out our article on: Why was my post moderated for Plagiarism? – Packback
  • It was a statement, not a question: Whether it be from the language or the structure of it, your post does not currently pose a question to your classmates and you may need to reword it. 

Note: Once a post has been flagged for any of the above reasons, it will be brought to our moderation queue where it will be further investigated by a member of our Moderation team. Don't worry, just because a post is flagged does not necessarily mean it will be moderated! For more information on moderation check out our article on: The Flag-to-Moderation Process
