The question I've asked:
was meant for me to get a head start on some of the more exotic aspects of game programming: the problem of projections, that can't be represented by matrices. After obtaining an answer I thought I'd go on and research some literature about the indices I'd obtain. Of course, an over-zealous moderator reacted to a flag by a user, who is perfectly content with orthographic and linear perspective projections. I've edited the question and flagged the moderator as per stackoverflow instructions. The response I've got from the moderator was this:
I've tried to fix my question. I don't need a novella answer, just some examples, so I get starting points to look through the literature. – user1095108 21 hours ago declined - flags should only be used to make moderators aware of content that requires their intervention
Meaning he did not understand (or even cared), why I flagged him at all. His further comment reinforces this view:
@JoshPetrie This is what moderator flags are for. First the flag, then the meta-site. – user1095108 35 mins ago No, it isn't. Moderator flags are for content that requires moderator intervention. Reopening a post due to an edit does not, there is a system in place for the community to do that. That's why I have rejected both of your flags against this post. Please don't flag it again. – Josh Petrie♦ 33 mins ago
Showing he's unaware of stackoverflow policies, further he's trying to dissuade from flagging again. I've given him a link to the relevant web page and he commented:
You flagged the question twice. Your first flag was rejected, explaining that this is not a scenario where moderator intervention is necessary (particularly since your edits did not make the question less broad). Your subsequent flag was rejected because you are just flag-spamming at that point. If you would like to discuss this further, please post on Game Development Meta. – Josh Petrie♦ 24 mins ago
Inflating my gross misconduct of flagging the question twice to "flag spamming". Now questions: is my question really too broad and why? Could it be salvaged? My view is, that the moderator closed impulsively.
