This is mostly out of personal interest in how things are done. I did not find the answer in Who are the moderators, and what is their role here? which seemed like a likely location for the answer.
I found this topic, Should there be a grace period before downvoting questions from a new user?, but it concerned "downvoting" and not "flagging" questions.
I wanted to flag a question but thought it was very new. I wasn't sure whether to flag it anyway (I have done so in the past). Do moderators have a system for waiting a set period of time before acting on flags? or is it on a question by question basis depending on the perceived urgency of taking some action? Obviously if an OP continues to comment when they've been asked to edit a question, they aren't taking a hint so a case by case (question by question) basis makes sense. I was just curious and (so far) have not found the answer.
If this is in the documentation and I missed it then this is not a great question. If its not, I'm recommending adding something about the policy (assuming it exists) or "rule of thumb" that moderators use in making that evaluation and what my role (as a privileged user of the site) should be in flagging questions. Should I wait or flag the question now and allow the moderator(s) to wait?
I'm thinking primarily of questions that could be easily improved and not questions (or answers for that matter) that have obvious problems.
