The "flag" to report to the admins a problem with a post used to have "wrong forum".... and then the admins usually move it to the right forum

Today I just noticed that flag option has disappeared!

So how do are we now supposed to report posts that for whatever reason are in the wrong forum? For example http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/159021 is in the "Hot Deals" forum but is really just a question about what online retailers there are in Europe so belong elsewhere ("General Gaming?").

To answer my own question....

The "wrong forum" flag was only removed from actual articles... you can however still flag the "thread" itself as "wrong forum"

I'd delete this thread but I'll leave it in case someone also got confused by the change

Though a new question... I just flagged the thread I referened as "wrong forum"... and once I used to do that, you could not flag it again. I don't really want to flag it again, but I wanted to make sure it was actually flagged, but now I'm not sure it actually did anything.

Any way to tell if an attempted "flag" actually was successful?

Well, if once you do that you can't flag it again, then your inability to flag it should tell you that you successfully flagged, no?

The problem I'm seeing is that I can keep flagging the same one over and over again... I did think it used to say you've already flagged it if you had and couldn't flag it again. So that's why I'm thinking it's not taking
