Everytime I refresh the NAA flagged posts, I get the same 50 each time.

I'm asking why aren't they random because at the bottom of the page:

Showing 50 random posts; get 50 more

If it's refreshed after some time period, can I that it be generated at page refresh?

Additionally, the link to get 50 more just goes back to https://stackoverflow.com/tools/flagged


As Matt noted in the comments, the flags are no longer random due to another bug fix.

That fix is here to stay, so since the list is no longer random, I've replaced that line with a pager that will allow you to navigate back and forth through the list. Should be live on MSO in rev. 2014.2.27.2000 and elsewhere in rev. 2014.2.27.1409.

    Can the get 50 more link do something useful? – Kermit Feb 26 '14 at 22:15

    With this new de-randomized flags page, I'm really missing some kind of a "skip" / "ignore" / "no action needed" button. I don't want to have to keep casting dozens of meaningless pile-on flags just to get to the part of the list where one can actually contribute something useful. – Ilmari Karonen Feb 26 '14 at 22:28
  • @IlmariKaronen Hrm. If a post needs flagging, then I'd say you should flag it. If it doesn't, you can dispute the flags that are there. I don't think it's worth bolting on a skip onto this right now - I'm still holding out hope for a more review-like interface for flag queues. – Adam Lear Feb 26 '14 at 22:31
  • @AnnaLear Like the suggested edits? – Kermit Feb 26 '14 at 22:32
  • @FreshPrinceOfSO Yeah, something along those lines. As far as I know there are no concrete plans in place, but I'm an optimist. – Adam Lear Feb 26 '14 at 22:32
  • @AnnaLear I'll upvote that. – Kermit Feb 26 '14 at 22:34
