Earlier today, before I had flagged anything, my flag weight was 637 (and change). After the admins had checked all my flags, they went up to 648 (and change). And now (I haven't flagged anything else), it's down to 628 (and change).
What causes the flag weight to drop so precipitously when nothing has changed? Is this a bug?
MMyers points out that I had two flags marked
Invalid today, out of the 16 I had cast. Two invalid flags take out a lot more than 14 valid flags give.
Does anyone have a link to the formula used by Stack Exchange to measure flag weight?
Edit: It appears that the formula (after a fashion) is available here.
