Why didn't flagging comments affect my Flagging Summary or Flag Weight

It seems to. People every where state that the flag weight increased with every successful comment flag. Why then, when I flag comments, don't they appear in my flag history. And also, when the comments get deleted, why don't I get an increase in flagweight?

No, I don't think that they do accumulate flag weight.

However, this is easily tested when you find the next inappropriate comment.

  • From the question that tombull89 posted above, it seems that comment flags do actually accumulate flag weight.

    @Thursagen See tombull's addendum. They did, but they do not add to your flag weight any longer.

  • Well, I just tested to determine (it was easy to find a comment to flag) but it has obviously been confirmed in the meantime; no worries, but remember that this is probably (supposedly) the least significant number related to your profile. Sep 2, 2011 at 8:50
