What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

I like to know it when I do or see something wrong. So I really like our flagging history (x moderator attention flags, y deemed helpful, z declined, etc.)

I specifically find the declined / disputed flags interesting, because one can learn from his faults. However, now you have to scroll through all your good flags, to see your few bad flags.

Can't we have a function to select only the helpful, only the declined or only the disputed? I also consider blahdiblah's answer to be a very good idea: sort on flag type ('not an answer', 'spam', etc.) too.

This idea sounds good to me. Can anyone speak to the difficulty in implementing it? –  Pieter Geerkens Mar 13 '13 at 18:36
When I imagine a database with votes, which have a userId to link to a user, and a status which says whether it's declined, disputed, et cetera... this is just selecting a specific status, which is like five minutes work. But it might be nastier, and I can't see SE's code :( –  Camil Staps Mar 13 '13 at 18:39

Actually, the flagging system is currently being revamped under the hood, so it'll probably involve more than that. –  BoltClock's a Unicorn Mar 13 '13 at 18:44

As BoltClock says, it sounds like the flagging system has overgrown its original design and is being rebuilt. That would need to be completed first before something like this is implemented, as well as a bunch of other flagging improvements that have been requested. I agree that this sounds like a good idea. –  Brad Larson Mar 13 '13 at 19:11
@BoltClock'saUnicorn any updates on this? –  Old Checkmark Aug 23 '13 at 0:51

While we're at it, you might as well add categorizing by flag type.

It'd be nice to see all of my interesting 'other' flags, helpful or not, without having to wade through the huge mass of 'not an answer' flags.

Good idea, I added it to the question! –  Camil Staps Mar 13 '13 at 18:54
