Currently, when choosing to view retracted flags, the title of the page becomes something like this:

Or in words: (bold emphasis mine)

Retracted Rude/Abusive flags raised by [my name here]

I don't think "Retracted" and "raised" can go together like that, title should be just "Retracted Rude/Abusive flags by..." or "Rude/Abusive flags retracted by...", in my opinion.

    @rene don't think so, it's not a new behavior, I just never bothered to ask changing it. :-) – Shadow 10 Years Wizard Aug 13 '19 at 11:12
  • The flags were raised. Retracting them doesn't change that. – Catija Aug 13 '19 at 17:57

    @Catija but for me it reads as "raised a new flag, of type retracted". – Shadow 10 Years Wizard Aug 13 '19 at 20:00
  • It's English... we can't fix it completely. I do assure you, it means what it should. I'm not sure where you're seeing this, though? Screenshot? – Catija Aug 13 '19 at 20:03
  • @Catija sure, added. – Shadow 10 Years Wizard Aug 14 '19 at 6:29
  • If you remove "raised" it is no longer clear that it are your own flags you retracted. It could then be anyones flag. I think it's fine as is. – Luuklag Aug 14 '19 at 6:55
  • @Luuklag there's still the "by" part, and even a mod can't retract a flag cast by users, at least not in the way the user can. – Shadow 10 Years Wizard Aug 14 '19 at 7:01
  • the by part would then reference the retraction solely, not the ownership of the flag. Which could lead to confusion. – Luuklag Aug 14 '19 at 7:04
