Screenshot would be better instead of link. – hjpotter92 May 30 '13 at 8:31
Caching? I am afraid only mods and devs can see your flagging history. – Antony May 30 '13 at 8:32
We cannot see your flag summary, that is private information (only you and diamond moderators can see that page). – Martijn Pieters May 30 '13 at 8:32
Do you remember what you flagged? If only questions then when they get deleted you can't see them anymore and I believe it's hidden from the flagging history page due to this. – Shadow Wizard May 30 '13 at 8:35
added screenshots... – Somnath Kharat May 30 '13 at 8:48

From my experience (don't have the reference):

It is because they were flags on comments. The only flags shown are on questions/answers. I think it is kind of a bug.


You do not have the 'Citizen Patrol' badge which is given for first post flag, so it makes sense they were flags to comments.

Also, I just found a reference: http://meta.stackexchange.com/a/126156/209901

In addition to RivieraKid's answer, comment flags do not show up in the "summary" list (even though they do count towards your helpful flags count). So, if your only helpful flag was a comment flag, that is why that list is still empty (although I would expect it to be in the "flagging history" area on the right).

Just discovered that you can see your flag history, even whithout any accepted flag, in:

You may be right but then it should show on the right side, that "X Comment Flagged" – Lucifer May 30 '13 at 8:41
+1, Yes I think your answer is correct. – Lucifer May 30 '13 at 8:50
@fedorqui +1 and ans. I think u are right .I have not flaged any answer or question.So the flag is of comment and flags of comment are not shown – Somnath Kharat May 30 '13 at 9:18
Exactly. The only strange thing is that there should appear a summary in the right like 2 comments flagged // 2 deemed helpful. Maybe it is a bug, because it does appear when you have accepted flags on posts. – fedorqui May 30 '13 at 9:20
