So, I've been awarded the deputy badge on Graphic Design for raising 80 helpful flags. I'm pretty awesome.


Much as I love my imaginary internet badges, I think I may only have been on Graphic Design once, and certainly I doubt I've raised any helpful flags there at all. (Or generally been at all helpful).

So what's going on?

    Are you saying you didn't raise any of these flags? That link is to your flag summary page on the site.

  • @Taryn - that's correct, however Glorfindel's answer seems to point in the direction of the reason why.

You've signed up for Autoflagging, so these flags have been cast automatically on spam posts reported by the SmokeDetector bot. Here is a link to the flags which have been cast in your name.

If you want to opt out of autoflagging, you can do so on your preferences page.

  • That's interesting. I have to say that I honestly don't remember opting into this, but given the state of my memory these days, that doesn't necessarily mean that it hasn't happened.

    @Paddy - It would have been almost a year ago by now, so it's not unreasonable that you'd have forgotten (assuming you signed up because you saw this post while it was featured network-wide).
