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

One identical question was listed three times on the flags page:

It probably should be on one line, not sure if it has 1 or 3 flags.

One flag for one post. So you see the correct three since they have all been flagged.

  • One is for the question.
  • One is for a comment/edit as answer to their own question.
  • One is for the other comment/edit as answer to, again, their own question.

Thanks, makes sense now :) – Andomar Nov 11 '09 at 11:18
Themself? I mean themself! Themself? Words cannot convey my despair that this has become acceptable. Can you at least avoid the construct by saying something like: "Another for the first answer the OP posted for that question"? – Sinan Ünür Nov 11 '09 at 11:58
+1 @Sinan Because language need not be butchered by programmers. – random Nov 11 '09 at 12:07
Perhaps there should be something on each row that says what exactly is being flagged (the question, an answer, or a comment). – Ether Nov 11 '09 at 19:49
Clicking the link/title takes you directly to the flagged item. – random Nov 11 '09 at 22:42
