NOTE: This question has been marked as a duplicate. Well two things.

  1. I don't see an answer there

  2. The interpretation of the user in that question is the count of flags is of available flags instead of those that are not yet handled by myself. Is this the case? If yes, can anyone direct me to a meta/faq link which affirms this? And if you cannot find a meta/faq link then please do not mark it as a duplicate. It is a humble request :)


  3. Instead of simply downvoting, I would request you to please let me know what is wrong with this question so that I can improve on it. :)

Please see this screenshot. The numbers never match. No matter how fast I refresh.

I thought that maybe there were 7 Not An Answer posts and some of them disappeared because they were actioned so I rapidly refreshed 5 times in a row but that 7 didn't change... nor did the 3 on the left hand side.

Same with the total posts to be reviewed (in Orange) vs the total posts 19. The orange total did change after 2 refresh attempts though.

Am I missing something? Does the count for individual flags refresh only after some specific time? I assumed it to be dynamic i.e changing with every refresh (Showing the actual count)

  • @RJ: Does that mean that there are actually 7 flags and out of those 4 have already been actioned by me and what I see is the remaining flags? Dec 17, 2013 at 10:06
  • @RJ: And if yes, then can you direct me to a link which supports that fact. Becuase what is mentioned in that question is OP's own understanding and hence this question is not a duplicate of that. Dec 17, 2013 at 10:16

    @downvoter: Care to explain why did you downvote? Maybe I can then improve my post? Dec 17, 2013 at 10:21
