Broken flags

Something seems to be wrong with flags on MSO. Everywhere I look at the results of flags they're not there, the counts seem to be wrong and Community has gone nuts on the "more than 20 comments" flags that are being raised.

Shhh, if we don't say anything maybe they'll leak more code later on! – animuson Jun 12 '13 at 19:59
I guess that explains why they're lower case though :) – Flexo Jun 12 '13 at 20:01
Ouch........... – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Jun 12 '13 at 20:02
I laughed: – hjpotter92 Jun 12 '13 at 20:05
Why, the BLAZES, are they lower-casing flag responses?! Judicious use of cApS makes text so much easier to rEaD. – Awesome Poodles Jun 12 '13 at 20:05
Also, my flag count is way lower than it used to be. – mikeTheLiar Jun 12 '13 at 20:24
Yeah, I lost about 60 of 80 flags. – Emrakul Jun 12 '13 at 21:06
@mikeTheLiar ARE YOU LYING? Looking into it :) – Jarrod Dixon Jun 12 '13 at 21:23
@JarrodDixon I've lost quite a few flags too. I have the deputy badge, but my flag page only shows 15.. – ɥʇǝS Jun 13 '13 at 0:03
@Seth It's a known issue... any "recommend closure" flags aren't being shown right now. Working on it. – Jarrod Dixon Jun 13 '13 at 0:04
@Jarrod Oh, so I'm suspicious, but Evil Bender is believable? Bah! You sicken me. – mikeTheLiar Jun 13 '13 at 12:42

Sure enough, we missed a few parenthisisiisisisses. It should be fixed now.

Not sure it's completely fixed. The formatting is still a little... strange: – ben is uǝq backwards Jun 12 '13 at 21:34
My helpful flag count is still lower than it was yesterday (8 -> 3). – George Cummins Jun 12 '13 at 22:50
Mine's down from 180ish to 8. I'm going to hope it's caching :D -- although it's mainly VTC flags from before I had votes so it's probably related to the close vote changes? – Rory Jun 12 '13 at 23:52
It's still missing the text from the actual flag on my profile. (I.e. the bit that says NAA or VLQ etc.) – Flexo Jun 13 '13 at 6:17
I'm still missing quite a few flags and none at all are showing when I try to view them. – Ren Jun 13 '13 at 8:05
...and they're back :) – Ren Jun 13 '13 at 13:38
@Geoff Looks like still you missed a few parenthisisiisisisses – Lucifer Jun 14 '13 at 6:42
