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

On Drupal Answers, an answer has been flagged as "low answer quality score" by the Community user; I flagged it as not an answer, and as spam.

As consequence, my "not an answer" flag has been automatically marked as helpful, but the automatic flag was not marked as helpful.

Should not the automatic flag be marked as helpful, since the post has been deleted?

I'm guessing this is because the user who issued the flag = the user who dismissed the flag via deletion. Same thing happens if you dismiss your own VLQ flag with a close vote. I don't think Community will mind, though. – a cat Mar 25 '12 at 15:19
