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

I like the new line that lists the number of helpful flags you've had, because now I know when flags get approved by seeing an incrementing number rather than a solid "750" all the time. However, I still don't know when things get declined, because that number is not shown.

Instead of the helpful flags: ### line could we generalize it to be flags: ### helpful, ### declined so that both numbers are listed? This way, we can notice when flags get declined as well as marked helpful.

If you click on the helpful flags number, it will give you this information in a summary (in the right margin of the page). – Robert Harvey Jan 25 '12 at 20:30
@Robert: Yes, I know that. But I oftentimes sit there and just refresh my profile page every once in a while to see if the number increases, as a way of telling if a flag has been reviewed. – animuson Jan 25 '12 at 20:31
that way doesn't look prominent enough; I'd prefer every flag decline to make my browser background bloody red - and keep it that way until I post something at Meta in declined-flags tag – gnat Jan 25 '12 at 20:32
@gnat: making the whole site <blink> would be welcome too – Mat Jan 29 '12 at 11:51
I got pointed here from this Q: where i propose a change to show the number of active flags. – Matsemann Aug 12 '13 at 11:06
