Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 moderator display of flags on a Q, it may have something like this:

Not an answer - UserName Timestamp, UserName

for repeated users flagging the same at various times. Using the Flag History option obviously gives us the ability to see in detail when flags were made, but can we change the default ordering to show the most recent flag first in that list, instead of the oldest?

Are there ever so many flags on a single post that you have trouble finding the newest one? – Michael Mrozek Sep 26 '11 at 14:54
Are you talking about the Floating Collidinator, or the moderator dashboard? – Robert Harvey Sep 26 '11 at 14:54
@RobertHarvey On I suppose the floating collidinator, the one at the bottom of a page view. Not the view on the moderator dashboard. – jcolebrand Sep 26 '11 at 15:05
@MichaelMrozek um, well, today, I had two NaA flags and could only see the timestamp of the one. This just seems like a way to generate one less pageview. – jcolebrand Sep 26 '11 at 15:06
@jcolebrand Ok, I thought you were talking about on the flags page, where seeing the most recent flag involves moving your eyes very slightly. The box on the question doesn't show all the flags? – Michael Mrozek Sep 26 '11 at 15:10
It does show all the flags, but for repeated flags (say pre-action and post-action) it comma separates the names. I haven't got any really fun flagsets tho with lots of flaggers, and I don't want to flag for the sake of testing atm (should be working no less) – jcolebrand Sep 26 '11 at 15:11
