I request that smaller Stack Exchange sites' mods get notification of comment flags atop each page, where notification of post flags is. Rationale:
- Smaller sites don't have as many comment flags, so mods won't be bombarded by flags. So the "too many flags, so no notification" reason doesn't apply.
- Likewise, mods on smaller sites don't have many post-flag notifications atop the page, to which the comment-flag notifications are adding noise.
- Mods on smaller sites don't check the /admin/dashboard as often, as there are few post flags; thus, they're likely to miss comment flags without the notification. (Moreover, if comment flags appear atop each page, then they don't need to check /admin/dashboard, so optimal behavior will match current behavior.
- The benefit is of course that they can check the flagged comment for deletion; smaller sites also have fewer users, so the comment is less likely to be deleted automatically (by having several people flag it) without mod attention.
What's a "smaller site"? Perhaps any in (private or public) beta. But actually I think it should be one that doesn't have many post flags:
- Once a site has many post flags, mods will check /admin/dashboard periodically anyway, so don't need comment-flag notification atop each page.
- Once a site has many post flags, the comment-flag notification atop each page will be noise with respect to the signal of post-flag notification.
- If a site has many post flags, people are obviously flagging, so comment flags will accumulate also, and comments will be deleted without needing mod attention.
Okay, but what does "many post flags" mean? What's "many"? That I don't know; maybe one a day? Please offer suggestions in answers.
