What happened to the 'Helpful Flags' counter / link that was available on your user page as it seems to have disappeared today?
Jarrod Dixon recently finished a major flag-related project he's been working on for a few months. In his own words,
We're rolling out a massive refactoring around flags, including how and where they're stored in the database.
Some of the related Meta.SO threads:
- Flag count is missing from profile pages
- On the recent changes to flagging and limits
- Flags are broken on MSO
One minor change that I just noticed myself: flagging a question as a duplicate now inserts the same auto-comment that voting to close does.
