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

If I (as a user with VtC privileges) click "flag" on a question, I see the ability to flag as "does not belong here, or is a duplicate".

  • Is this a ? I'm quite sure I didn't used to be able to see that.

Anyway, if I use that ("does not belong here, or is a duplicate") option and VtC the question, take a sip of my tea and continue about my daily business, upon submitting the "flag", the counter for the "flag" button gets set, not the "close" button.

  • This would seem like a definate .

How did you get a count next to the flag button in the first place? – animuson Jun 25 '13 at 21:44
@animuson: Mmmm, there isn't one until you submit the flag. Think my title was misleading; my bad. – Matt Jun 25 '13 at 21:46
So you opened the flag dialog, went to the close section and submitted your close vote that way (rather than immediately going through the close dialog)? – animuson Jun 25 '13 at 21:47
We've all been upgraded to semi-mod status! – Undo Jun 25 '13 at 21:49
@animuson: Yes... – Matt Jun 25 '13 at 21:50
Weirdly that's not where mods really do see flag counts. – Flexo Jun 30 '13 at 12:29
reproduced, looking into that... – m0sa Jul 10 '13 at 9:27

Fixed in next build that rolls out (something like 2013.7.10.830).
