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

Since the reskin of the 10k flagged post/comment review page, I've noticed a curious trend:

hot freehand mspaint circle action, yo

Each of those flagged comments has the same number of upvotes as flags. At first I thought it was just some curious happenstance, but the numbers never seem to vary, and it's been happening for days. Comments with no upvotes also happen to have no flags. Ever.

Flags that I add don't show up. Upvotes that I add also increment the flag count.

@Marc I can't flag you. :( – Mateen Ulhaq Jun 21 '11 at 1:51
@muntoo - I don't understand; is that a bug report? – Marc Gravell Jun 21 '11 at 6:16
@Marc If someone thinks a comment is 'funny' they may upvote the comment. Then, they may realize the comment to be out of context/inappropriate/etc, and decide to flag it. Oh wait... they can't flag it anymore! – Mateen Ulhaq Jun 21 '11 at 19:50
@muntoo an edge case. And IMO "by design" - they've already said it was good. There is always mod flag... – Marc Gravell Jun 22 '11 at 5:54

Ok, that probably just means that in the cut-down 10k view I am showing the wrong counter; my bad. Diamond moderators get an expanded view there that shows the counts per reason, which is why I didn't spot it. It should be trivial to fix. Thanks for reporting it.

I'm spamming my related bug report - Number of Comment Flags isn't Displayed for Unvoted Comments – Kobi Jun 1 '11 at 4:18
