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

As Waffles wrote @

We now only show the number of helpful flags on your profile page (visible only to you) ... this number only ever increases.

Flag weight on the other hand, is gone ... it is dead.

Should we rename the existing tag to the ? And/or create a synonym? Or just leave it as is (for historical purposes, for example)?

Just in case… No personal interest here as I'd rather prefer -> rename, than Taxonomist badge for the latter.

No. They're different mechanisms and much of the discussion about flag weight won't apply to a simple helpful flag counter.

Retag what makes sense and close/delete/comment/etc. on the rest.
