I don't know the reason why flag options have disappeared from my comment section.

Is low reputation a reason?

You need at least 15 reputation to flag, you have 6 when I checked (which, naturally will change over time), so looks like it.

Kinda odd that flag's visible on the question itself, but if you had the reputation, it should show up on comments on hover.

  • oh, I was thinking the flag option on the question - but I don't have any 1 rep accounts to test May 14, 2017 at 4:33
  • oh, that's the case too, but OP cannot flag at all anyway May 14, 2017 at 5:27
  • @polygeo in my case i couldn't see any flags even when my mouse is over the comment May 14, 2017 at 5:30

    Users can flag their own post even with 1 rep (see it mentioned here), same way they can post in per-site meta with 1 rep if linking to their existing post. May 14, 2017 at 6:20

    @user7982827 I was replying to "Kinda odd that flag's visible on the question itself" part in the answer. (You can flag your own post, but not the comments on it) May 14, 2017 at 8:41
