Feedback/suggestions for new flagging page in user profile

This is minor, but when I first saw the new design, I thought the > was a dropdown. (Compare the dropdowns in the 10k tools.) Therefore, I think the arrow should be a different character, maybe a ...

Helpful flags considered good, and declined flags considered bad. What about retracted flags?

Retracted flags, for the purpose of accounting, are neutral. There are too many explanations for why a flag may be retracted for anyone, the system or moderators, to guess at it. For example someone ...

Flag history shows different formatting for answers and questions

While I won't argue against this page getting some love and attention, I'm pretty sure that all of these differences are intentional. It's pretty standard in various places that we indicate questions ...

Can we improve the flagging history filters UI?

Robert Cartaino analyzed this request and recommended the indentation (SOLO's alternative suggestion) as a clear indicator of the list's dual-level nature. I decided to implement this using Stacks' ...

Flag message showing as "removed during a deletion" in the flag history

This has been reverted for the time being. To quote Yaakov: This fix has been temporarily reverted - we need to better define the flag types to which this applies. Will update here when we have ...

(Flags) Leave Open ~ Declined, Looks OK ~ Disputed?

A long time ago, both types of flags had the same type of behavior. Both would place the post into the respective community review queue and the private moderator flag queue: If review comes to a ...

Remove duplicate user info from the flag history page

This should not change, or if it does, it shouldn't change the moderator view of the page. While regular users can't see other people's flag history, moderators can. Having this visible on the page ...

Wording of the title and heading of flag history page

There are actually two pages that have the header "Flags for $name$" and that actually makes this even more confusing if you're a moderator - because the other page can only be viewed by the ...

Can we improve the flagging history filters UI?

Like Robert, I never noticed this until you pointed it out (not that I was looking particularly closely)... and now I can't un-see the "wrong" way. Seems to me that the problem isn't directly about ...

Why was the display of prior "no longer needed" comment flags retroactively changed to "not relevant" in my flag history?

It is intentional, insofar as not retroactively changing the flag would've required adding a new flag type and that wasn't done. Note that a new flag type was added for a planned "Unwelcoming" comment ...

At flag history page add a link to filter by retracted ("self-removed") flags

This has been done in the latest build. You'll see a new filter category called retracted which will filter any of the flags you self-removed. Thanks to Michael Stum for getting this out so quickly!

Missing flag in flagging history

Well this is a weird edge case and the flag involved isn't getting included in the total because your flag was invalidated by an event. The flag is listed on your history page, it's just not covered ...

Change title for Retracted flags in the Flag History page

The root title is Rude/Abusive flags raised by foobar. The [Helpful / Declined / Retracted] text in the respective subdivision is simply appended to the beginning of the root title. So the titles ...

At flag history page add a link to filter by retracted ("self-removed") flags

I agree, there should be a link. Not so much because it's important to be able to filter out only self-removed flags, but because currently the flag counts don't add up. From your screenshot: 14,...

Why was the display of prior "no longer needed" comment flags retroactively changed to "not relevant" in my flag history?

Flags aren't stored in the system as strings but as numeric codes. (You can see some of them in the SEDE schema.) When they changed the name, they almost certainly just changed the value of the ...

On flags to migrate a question, why was the site I selected no longer shown in the flag history?

Back then, "belongs on another site" was also the only available sub-reason for off-topic. You could either vote it as plain off-topic for the site or choose a migration path. With the ...

Can I distinguish between post flags and comment flags in my flagging history?

It's sort-of possible, except for custom moderator flags. For standard flags, the 'name' of the flag is displayed: 'not an answer' and 'very low quality' are obviously post flags, as are 'off-topic', ...
