I was reading a topic and I forgot that I had already flagged the article so I clicked to flag it.
It said there was one less flag so I thought if I clicked it again it would go back to having the flag but all it said was "Fail"
Is that just temporary and I have to go back in later to flag it or something?

This happens to me a lot because I have a terrible memory and forgot I flagged and starred it. Seems temp, I don't know if one is allowed to reload then flag again.

I just tried it with this thread. I flagged. Then refreshed the page. Then unflagged. Then refreshed the page. Then was able to flag again with no problems.

Try refreshing the page.

Try refreshing and waiting a minute. Could be "flood protection" kicking in if you try and flag/unflag/flag too fast. That method usually works for me at least when I get the fail flag.

Are you saying we can unflag something after we flag it?

Just wondering, it's pretty funny actually. . . here have a flag! Not!!!

Add: Holy cow that's crazy it worked. I'll put it back now op.

You can unflag a thread that you have flagged.

Yep. For those occasions where you change your mind, or you thought the thread would be one thing, but turned out to be another and you wish to withdraw your support via flags.

Yep.
