As far as I see filtering flags on the flag summary page uses simple words combining to create a full sentence as a title. E.g. title for helpful flags on comments:

enter image description here

Such approach is completely unacceptable for localized sites. Full sentences should be used instead for each filtering type.

I agree.


  • there's ~30 possible combinations
  • this is one of the rare cases where we have enum-combination-explosion

The options for fixing this are to either generate all the combinations once (template + condition) ( == maintenance hell), or extend our localization back end / templating / compiler to support generating those ( == considerable effort).

I'll see what I can do.

  • How about something like $flags_title_status$ $flags_title_group$ flags instead of $status$ $group$ flags?
