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 didn't find this neither by searching, nor among the suggestions when I was posting, so I think there are not duplicates. If I missed them, point me to them.

I'm a 10K user on EL&U, and now and then I help the mods clearing the flags or the reviews made by low-rep users.

As a mod on other sites, I can access the stats and see how many flags I've handled. However, this is not possible as a 10K user, as far as I can tell.

Unless I missed this too, can we make it so that 10K users can see the total count for the handled flags?

Edit: A note... When I see my flagging history, accessible from my profile, do I view only the flags I "sent" or also the ones I handled?

Edit 2: Following the request from the comments, when I flag a post for moderator attention, then I'm flagging. If, instead, some low-rep user flags posts and I dismiss them (as a mod/10K user) as helpful/declined, then I'm handling them.

I didn't invent this terminology, I used the term I saw by hovering the mouse cursor over my stats where I'm a moderator.

I follow the request, but the definition of "handled" is kind of wide. Define handle? – waffles Feb 6 '12 at 0:35
@waffles: Doesn't the review queue "know" when you've done something to a flagged post, so that the post won't show up again if you refresh the queue? That's what I imagined to be meant by "handled". – Josh Caswell Feb 6 '12 at 7:28
@waffles Sorry, I wasn't here before now. I added it to the question! :) – Alenanno Feb 6 '12 at 8:38
@Alenanno you handle a flag as a 10k user only as a side effect... eg: you "promote" a close flag to a close vote. you may also simply downvote a question with a flag ... etc.. you do not have the full range on mod options as a 10k user – waffles Feb 6 '12 at 8:55
@waffles If I'm not mistaken, only spam/comment flags are mod-only; while Low quality, Not an answer, etc, are handled by both... Is that correct? Just looking for confirmation. – Alenanno Feb 6 '12 at 9:01
@Alenanno nothing is handled directly by a single 10k user, they are handled by them as a side effect. So ... if you voted to delete a "not an answer" as a 20k user, the post is not deleted, the flag remains until the final delete vote is cast. If you vote to close a post with close votes, you "promote" the close flag and handle it as a side effect. – waffles Feb 6 '12 at 9:04
@waffles I see. I thought there was a sharing for the flag handling. :) So, summarizing: when I see the "flag-icon-number" above, as a 10K user, and I open it and I dismiss it as valid/invalid, I'm still "helping", if I understood what you said... Is this correct? If yes, I think my proposal would still be valid, as in, show me the total count of flags I've "helped mods to handle"... – Alenanno Feb 6 '12 at 9:08
