I raised a "not an answer" flag on How do I practice arpeggios on the piano?, which was resolved as "disputed". No quarrel with the resolution, just looking to refine my participation on the site.
It would help to understand the mod's basis for the "dispute".
My reasoning for the flag was that the post doesn't answer the question and rather expands on the poster's objections to various teaching methods. I hesitated in raising the flag due to the post's age (3 yrs).
Was the "dispute" resolution based on
- the age of the post (old and not egregious, so let it stand)
- the content of the post (close enough to an answer)
- something else?
For a case like this where I have some hesitation, is it generally better to flag first and ask questions later (as I chose to do), or is it better to meta first and flag later?
