Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

On the Stack Overflow Facebook minisite tools page, flags are shown without tag restrictions, meaning that flags from the main Stack Overflow site on non-Facebook questions are shown.


As Bill notes below, this makes sense for moderators, but it doesn't make sense for 10k and 20k users who only use the Facebook sub-site.

Why do 2 people think this is wrong? – genesis Aug 24 '11 at 20:50
I can confirm that I'm seeing the same list of flags as well. That's definitely how it should be for diamond moderators, but I don't know about 10k and 20k mods. I wouldn't want high-rep Facebook.SO users to just start ignoring flags because there were so many non-FB flags displayed. – Bill the Lizard Aug 24 '11 at 21:04
yeah I did not add the filtering there ... will have a think – waffles Aug 25 '11 at 0:30
@waff and will it be added? – genesis Aug 25 '11 at 9:59
@Popular facebook is capitalised in this case – genesis Oct 5 '11 at 21:40
@genesis-φ, why? I've never been clear on the official rule for that, so I would really appreciate it if you could point me to a definitive source. I hate it when organization wordmarks don't match the proper spellings.... – Pops Oct 5 '11 at 22:27
@PopularDemand company names are almost always capitalized in English. For example Facebook's title tag: "Welcome to Facebook - Log In, Sign Up or Learn More" – bkaid Oct 6 '11 at 0:30
@OffBySome - Except for tags, where nothing is capitalized. – Kevin Vermeer Oct 6 '11 at 2:37

Facebook.Stackoverflow needs all the help it can get for closing and flagging the onslaught of bad/dupe/off-topic questions it can get, so these tools should be updated. It would help to see a focused view on the bad Facebook questions. It would also benefit any additional future mini-sites that get launched. This seems like a over sight when this was built and I really hope this gets implemented. I started a bounty for it to get more attention.
