I created this account about a year ago, and have been flagging things steadily (if infrequently) since then. After I submit a flag, I get a pop-up reading
Thanks for flagging! We take your reports seriously.
I could just be forgetting, but I don't think I saw that message after my first few flags. This leads me to wonder, what does "we take your reports seriously" mean in the flagging UI?
Has it been there for a while, and I just never noticed? Is it a generic reassurance, added in the Jul 2018 UI update, that the system and mods take the community's flags seriously? Or is it a message shown to only specific users, letting them know that their particular flags are taken more seriously than average, as sort of a spiritual successor to flag weight?
