I used flag 6 times when I didn't knew what flagging means. They all were declined. I want to delete those from my account. How do I delete them?

Edit: By didn't knew I mean I didn't knew how do I check for response by moderator for a particular flag.

    Out of curiosity was there some way in which the dialog that pops up when flagging isn't clear about what the function does? What did you think it meant that could have been clarified by the UI? – Caleb Mar 20 '17 at 12:24
  • @Caleb yes, I am curious too. 'I used flag 6 times when I didn't knew what flagging means' seems like a dangerous philosophy, in general:) – Martin James Mar 20 '17 at 12:29
  • @MartinJames: haha Its not so dangerous philosophy sir. I was badly down-voted on a question and then I was banned on ask questions. I somehow wanted to get rid of the question so I started flagging for moderator intervention to delete the question. I didn't know how to check for moderators response after flagging. So I kept on flagging the same question again and again till I got to know how to check for moderators' response for a flag raised. – Shridhar R Kulkarni Mar 20 '17 at 12:39
  • Any idea on why did someone down vote my valid question? – Shridhar R Kulkarni Mar 20 '17 at 17:26
  • @Caleb: Any idea why is the question being down-voted? I just clarified my doubt in a valid way on the right site. Am I missing anything? – Shridhar R Kulkarni Mar 22 '17 at 7:33

You can't delete flags from your account flagging history, and should not do that.

Nobody except you and moderators can see your flags history, so there is no "public shame" issue. The only thing visible to everyone is the amount of helpful flags you raised: (and it's not clickable for anyone except you and moderators)

Just take this as a lesson and flag properly in the future, and all will be good, no harm done.

  • 1. But I might run into risk of being banned of flagging if anymore flags of mine are declined. So i want to delete them. 2. How could you see the information you posted as screenshot? I can't see the same of yours. – Shridhar R Kulkarni Mar 20 '17 at 12:11

    @ShridharR.Kulkarni Deleting stuff never works in your favor of being banned. That goes for posts as it goes for flags. Just flag correctly and if you don't know how or what to flag read up on that in the help center or in the faq posts on the topic. You can find your flags here at the right side of the page. or here for your SO account. – rene Mar 20 '17 at 12:14

    @ShridharR.Kulkarni it does not work this way. This isn't a computer game where you can load old save point. You can't erase past mistakes. So yes, this can be used to ban you from flagging if you keep the bad behavior. As for screenshot, it's from your own profile on Stack Overflow, each profile got different details, so you indeed see different numbers for my profile. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Mar 20 '17 at 12:16

    /me writes feature request for implementing save point – rene Mar 20 '17 at 12:18
  • @ShadowWizard: I know the screenshot has been taken from my own profile. Its just that I don't know do I check number of helpful flags raised by other users. – Shridhar R Kulkarni Mar 20 '17 at 12:43
  • @ShridharR.Kulkarni go to their profile, go to the activity tab, and it's there below the impact. e.g. see here that rene cast 966 helpful flafs here on MSE. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Mar 20 '17 at 12:46

No you can't delete from what I know, but you, mods and community team are the only one to see that record.

See here for what is flagging.
