What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I got a load of Citizen Patrol badges this morning, which is nice.

I know the rules have changed, but I got it on Cooking SE, and I'm pretty certain that I've never flagged anything there.

Sorry if I'm wrong (I don't think I've got any way of checking).

I just got one this morning here as well. But I also don't think I have flagged anything meta. – jzd Feb 10 '11 at 13:11

Are you sure? Nothing? No questions, answers, comments, chat messages? Not even for CW or so? – nyuszika7h Feb 10 '11 at 13:31
    
I've only got one on SO and MSO. – nyuszika7h Feb 10 '11 at 14:08

Perhaps... did you perchance mark anything through /review? – Grace Note Feb 10 '11 at 14:45

I got the same thing. A citizen patrol badge (on SO). And I never flagged a post, a comment... Anything. – Xavier V. Feb 10 '11 at 15:26

@Jeff, I don't think I've ever mod flagged on cooking either, have you guys checked? – Benjol Feb 11 '11 at 5:34
    
@benjol the database never lies – Jeff Atwood Feb 11 '11 at 19:28
    
@Benjol you flagged this Cooking post on 2011-01-17. You didn't like the tags :) – Jarrod Dixon Feb 11 '11 at 20:23
    
@Leslie you flagged this Stack Overflow post on 2010-07-13 with your concerns about the asker writing a virus. The question has since been deleted. – Jarrod Dixon Feb 11 '11 at 20:41
    
@Jeff, I wasn't doubting the database, I was just checking that someone had actually looked. @Jarrod, ok, so much for my memory :) – Benjol Feb 12 '11 at 9:46
    
@Jarrod, thank you for checking. I do kind of vaguely remember that now. – Leslie Feb 12 '11 at 21:31

Jeff finally clears this up here:

Citizen Patrol has been extended to all mod flags, so if you have ever mod flagged, you will now get it.

Now mod flagging I have done.

I have never (intentionally) flagged anything anywhere. – Leslie Feb 11 '11 at 11:59
