The situation is as follows:

  • If a user looks at their own profile on meta.codereview, their flag weight is not displayed, suggesting it is in the normal range.
  • If I (as a moderator) look at anybody's profile (including my own) the flag weight is displayed as 0.
  • Consequently, if any user (including myself) flags something, the flag does not show up in the flags queue.

So is this a bug or were flags deliberately disabled on meta.codereview?

    flags weighted zero are suppressed, but don't know why zero. – YOU Mar 1 '11 at 12:00

    Definitely a bug; fixing – Marc Gravell Mar 1 '11 at 12:06

Taking the bullets in turn:

  • flag weight was (incorrectly) not shown on per-site metas
  • there was a bug with the twin user-creation on per-site metas; fixed
  • that is expected with a zero; it was have disabled this while I investigated, but restored now

    Did this only affect users who were created after the flag weight system was introduced? I noticed a few (fairly random) 0 weight entries on Gaming Meta, and I couldn't really find any pattern until you brought up that it was due to a bug in user-creation. Consequently, since Code Review was made after the flag weight system, that would indeed qualify every single user. – Grace Note Mar 1 '11 at 14:25

    @GraceNote pretty-much, yes; the flag weight was also running in the background a while longer than seen, too. The weights have been fixed... – Marc Gravell Mar 1 '11 at 15:01
