Question flags, queues, edits, roomba, community♦, how does this actually work?

Phew, this was a really long request. It took a long time to work through all of this, but I'm going to try. As you've mentioned a lot of this has been documented in multiple places - MSE, MSO, help ...

Why are self-deleted posts not shown in the 10k Tools?

I agree. Moderators can access a list of self-deleted posts, but as a moderator I want the community to be watching over deletions, not just mods. 10k users would be able to see those posts if they ...

What was the "invalid flag" flag? What was the "10k flag queue"?

In an older version of the flagging system, flags were handled by two main queues. The diamond moderators, obviously, could see and act on flags at will; that's one of the main jobs of being a diamond ...

Who rejected this suggested edit to an orphan tag wiki?

Nobody rejected it. It's not a rejected edit. It became unreviewable because the tag no longer existed while the edit was still pending, and thus there was nothing to connect it to anymore. There is a ...

What exactly is meant by "flagged and deleted" in the 10k tools help center article?

I have no idea. It's been like that since the initial version in 2013, which may have been copied from somewhere else when the new help center was being filled. So who knows how old that text actually ...

Why are self-deleted posts not shown in the 10k Tools?
