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

You are able to "disagree" with a flag when you go here, do those disagreements get added to one's flag queue to be marked as helpful or not?

There was a previous question asking about flag weight which no longer is in play. I am asking if these "disagree" flags go towards earning the flag badges.

No. If you don't believe me, try it and observe the number of helpful flags shown in your profile.

When you mark a flag as invalid, your own flag is marked as disputed.


Those flags are shown in your flagging history under "disputed"; they don't count as useful flags, and don't allow you to get a badge for useful flags.

As for flag weight, it is not shown anymore to users, but it is still internally used to order the flags in the page showing the flagged posts. If users keep to wrongly flag posts, their flags will be shown after the other ones.
