My flag got revised; not declined just revised meaning I got 11 flags instead of 10 today. It was on this question for it being about software recommendations; I reflagged it.

I didn't vote close I flagged it.
Right - That's the point. If you flag a question as being about a software recommendation, then it goes into the "Close votes" review queue (which you'll get access to at 3,000 rep). From there:
If within a certain period of time (4 or 10 days, depending on the activity level on the question, I believe), it gets a close-vote from another user (even a single vote), then your flag will get marked "Helpful". The question may not receive enough votes to be closed, but as long as there's a single close-vote, you get the "Helpful" credit.
If the question ages out of the close-votes queue without getting a close-vote, which this one apparently did then your flag just disappears with it. You don't get dinged with a "declined" flag, but it won't count as "Helpful" either.
