As a moderator on Software Recommendations, I always have the Newest Questions page open, and can see new questions appear in real-time, which is super cool. Each time a new question is posted, my browser tab changes color, and I can click on the "1 question with new activity" grey rectangle to reveal it. 30% of the time, the question looks odd and I open it in a new tab to check it further. If there is any flag I can see it in this new tab.

PROBLEM: The remaining 70% of the time, I just go back to my real-life activities, and miss an opportunity to see new flags because I did not reload the page nor load a new page.

If new questions appear in real-time, what arguments are there against showing new flags too?

  • I'd like to see this too - notifications are pushed to clients over websockets, so surely flags can be too. – ArtOfCode Apr 5 '16 at 12:13
