On the Stack Overflow Facebook minisite tools page, flags are shown without tag restrictions, meaning that flags from the main Stack Overflow site on non-Facebook questions are shown.

As Bill notes below, this makes sense for moderators, but it doesn't make sense for 10k and 20k users who only use the Facebook sub-site.

    Why do 2 people think this is wrong?

    I can confirm that I'm seeing the same list of flags as well. That's definitely how it should be for diamond moderators, but I don't know about 10k and 20k mods. I wouldn't want high-rep Facebook.SO users to just start ignoring flags because there were so many non-FB flags displayed. Aug 24 '11 at 21:04

  • @Popular facebook is capitalised in this case

  • @genesis-φ, why? I've never been clear on the official rule for that, so I would really appreciate it if you could point me to a definitive source. I hate it when organization wordmarks don't match the proper spellings....

  • @PopularDemand company names are almost always capitalized in English. For example Facebook's title tag: "Welcome to Facebook - Log In, Sign Up or Learn More"

    @OffBySome - Except for tags, where nothing is capitalized. Oct 6 '11 at 2:37

Facebook.Stackoverflow needs all the help it can get for closing and flagging the onslaught of bad/dupe/off-topic questions it can get, so these tools should be updated. It would help to see a focused view on the bad Facebook questions. It would also benefit any additional future mini-sites that get launched. This seems like a over sight when this was built and I really hope this gets implemented. I started a bounty for it to get more attention.
