When a regular user flags something it disappears into the system until the flag is processed by someone.

This is OK for active sites, but for less active sites, or sites like Meta where only employees handle flags and so processing can be slow on weekends/holidays, one can lose track of one's flags, and can't be sure what flags have actually been raised and are pending. (E.g., on one particularly inactive site I'm pretty sure I raised a flag over a week ago, but nothing shows processed so how can I tell?)

Feature Request: Show all flags in profile immediately, initially marked as "unprocessed".

    Um, they do show up immediately. If they haven't been handled they show as "active". Jul 14, 2014 at 20:19
  • @MonicaCellio: Not for us mere mortals. Are you referring to a moderator view?

    @feetwet no, I check this on sites where I'm not a moderator. But have you perhaps never had a flag accepted? Once you've had a flag accepted you'll see a "helpful flags" count on your profile and you can click that to see all your flags (with status). Until you have that, you can manually construct the URL: (site)/users/flag-summary/(user#) . (Only you and mods can see that page.) Jul 14, 2014 at 21:12
  • @MonicaCellio: I just did a test of this, and yes I can see that now. Thanks!

  • P.S. I just flagged this question for closure as "off-topic" due to the sub-reason "can no longer be reproduced." But my flag queue only lists the flag as "off-topic," which is confusing. But I guess I've entered enough feature requests for one day....
