The part of the profile page that (if you've flagged anything) gives a total and a link to your flag history has gone missing:


Note in the screen capture that I am a moderator on that site, and trust me I've flagged posts. I first noticed this absence in my user profile on Hermeneutics, where I am not a mod. (I have the Deputy badge -- so, again, there are definitely flags.)

I am not seeing this with my profile here on MSO.

Firefox 18 and Chrome 16,0.912.77, Win XP.

Going directly to the flag-summary page (on Mi Yodeya) shows no flag activity.

    My flag count is still showing on Stack Overflow but is missing on my DBA.SE profile.

    My flag count is higher as it should be. Looks like comment flag are counted now which wasn't previously?

    @juergend, did you steal my flags? :-) Jun 25 '13 at 21:28
  • And if you go directly to the flag history page? Jun 25 '13 at 21:28

    @juergend: Yes, old comments were assigned a status. They also appear in your history now.

    @ShaWizDowArd good idea. The flag-summary page is as if I had no flags. The problem appears to be deeper than the profile page. Jun 25 '13 at 21:37
  • The flag count is also missing on all four beta sites I checked.

  • Missing on: Mi Yodeya, Hermeneutics, ELU, Workplace, Wrtiers, BCG. (I think those + MSO are all the sites on which I have Citizen Patrol, hence flags.) Jun 25 '13 at 21:42
  • Missing on Arqade.

    Yep, the entire stats on the tens of thousands of flags that have been casted on Arqade have gone.

    I've noticed slightly different behavior on Arqade - specifically, I seem to have picked up ~40 new Helpful Flags during the course of the day. (I haven't flagged anything today.) Jun 25 '13 at 22:27

    @badp'skitten aw man, what are people for, then? So, should I, um, flag this? :-) Jun 25 '13 at 22:34

We're rolling out a massive refactoring around flags, including how and where they're stored in the database.

The data required a backfill, which has just completed, so everything should be back to normal (or better!) (or worse :( ).

Just report bugs you notice - thank you!

    Would an increase of 40 in my Helpful Flag count be considered a bug? Or has the calculation changed in some way? Jun 25 '13 at 23:26

    I jumped from 45 to 99 as well.

    @LessPop_MoreFizz it's by-design. Comment flags weren't being counted correctly. Jun 26 '13 at 0:58
