The comment with the Flagged Posts that seems to be new as of today states there are posts with flags awaiting my attention but the counter shows zero and when I go into flagged posts there is nothing waiting for me.enter image description here

    Careful, the SO moderators might come at you with a stick for complaining that your flag queue is empty. Commented Jul 22, 2013 at 13:39
  • The dupe has been fixed, but the number can still be cached for a while. Commented Jul 22, 2013 at 13:40

    Not sure that that's a duplicate. I'm seeing "0" on Android Enthusiasts and its meta site. I'm also seeing "1" on Web Applications.

  • @MadScientist I'm seeing it on the main and meta sites for Personal Finance & Money as well. Commented Jul 22, 2013 at 13:49
  • Seems like the issue is localized to Beta Sites and anyone with over 2k rep for mod tools. Commented Jul 22, 2013 at 13:51
  • Also observed by me and at least one other person on Information Security (there was one 10k flag, I acted on it, and (after a few minutes) the indicator changed to 0). Commented Jul 22, 2013 at 13:53
  • @Gilles I take it this issue is different from the possible duplication linked to above? Commented Jul 22, 2013 at 13:56
  • I'm seeing it on Space Exploration, with 1K reputation, which is in private beta. Commented Jul 22, 2013 at 13:56

    @JohnBensin That prior issue had been fixed, and didn't exactly have the same symptoms anyway. So it's a new bug that happens to have somewhat similar symptoms to an older bug. Commented Jul 22, 2013 at 13:58
  • @Gilles That's what I thought, but I wanted to clarify before I raised the issue on the meta site of another beta. Commented Jul 22, 2013 at 13:59

    @MichaelGrubey: Not limited to beta sites.

    @MichaelGrubey In private beta, 1k gets you the 10k tools :)

    I reopened, as it was a different bug than the proposed duplicate. Commented Jul 22, 2013 at 17:08

People were (rightfully) complaining that the /tools/flagged indicator was a bit random, so I decided to always show it.

Perhaps I should have checked for a count > 0 first, though.

Fixed.

    So you're the Dev spending a week on the mod tools.

    I'm experiencing this now on Mi Yodeya. I have a yellow-splatted 1 on my toolbar, but there's nothing there when I click through. Commented Jul 23, 2013 at 17:58
  • @IsaacMoses, ditto.

  • @JarrodDixon This issue still seems to be happening on some sites it seems. Commented Jul 24, 2013 at 7:38
  • Yeah, it's due to us caching the count globally for all users. Fixing it requires either 1) running another query on each page load for each 10K user (not acceptable) or 2) an elaborate caching scheme for each 10K user (ain't nobody got time for that :) Commented Jul 25, 2013 at 0:15

    So, we're going to look at just removing that number by routing the /tools/flagged page's contents into different /review queues, e.g. low quality flags -> Low Quality Posts review queue. Discussing it now internally. Commented Jul 25, 2013 at 0:16
