This is described in more detail here. Rather than waiting for the first flag to be positively handled, as soon as a user makes a flag, they should be able to see a history of the flags they have raised and their current status. Right now, if a user is making flags that get declined, they have no way to see that their flags were reviewed and rejected by moderators and which ones are still pending review and therefore don't have a way to learn. This would remove some of the mystery of the flagging system and hopefully allow users that want to improve their participation a way to do it.

    Would be less annoying if it only happened if you have declined flags you haven't seen. If you're still flagging well, move along

  • What's the bug? Or do you really want a feature request here?

  • @random I think it's a bug because the feature exists, it's just not useful - I consider the display of the counter/link only after you have a helpful flag to be a defective implementation. Perhaps it is a feature request. Dec 20, 2012 at 17:22
  • Perhaps something like "Flags: 4 (0 Helpful)"?

  • @Jim That would work, too. I'm not sure what the formatting should be. I just know that I've raised flags on a site and I don't know if they have been handled (or if they are pending) and if they were dismissed as unhelpful, what the reasoning is. Dec 20, 2012 at 17:25
  • per my recollection, previous discussion of a particular bug with flagging summary links has been pretty quickly "resolved by design", by making flag-weight invisible. Wonder how it will be this time

    @gnat Flag weight is still hidden. And there is a trigger for showing people their flag history. It's just that the current trigger is bad. Dec 20, 2012 at 17:37
  • @ThomasOwens agree (I'm out of votes today to upvote, going to do that tomorrow)

  • It tells you stats in your profile, but they should go farther and show each flag individually. This is driving me CRAZY!!!!!! I wish they would fix this. Jan 29, 2013 at 0:23

This was implemented back in July 2015. The link to view the flag history is available on the profile page even if none of the flags have been accepted yet.
