I think I have a reasonable flag record. Unless this is a bug, then something new has happened. But what?

    $\begingroup$ It seems that at least 25% of your flags from the past seven days were declined. That counts post flags only, not comment flags. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Fischer Sep 18 '15 at 17:28

    $\begingroup$ That new feature could use some fine-tuning -- I have 320 helpful flags (and 24 declined), but since I don't flag much these days (work...) and one flag was declined, I got the warning... $\endgroup$ – Najib Idrissi Sep 18 '15 at 17:52

    $\begingroup$ @DanielFischer I have to admit that this is a great feature. (Btw, when improve that poor searching engine? It stays so for years.) $\endgroup$ – user26857 Sep 18 '15 at 19:37
  • $\begingroup$ In any case it's better than the old flag-hellban. You've recently been a little unlucky and flagged several answers that were already through the review queue. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Fischer Sep 18 '15 at 19:42
  • $\begingroup$ @DanielFischer And how long will last this ban? Days, months, years? $\endgroup$ – user26857 Sep 18 '15 at 19:48

    $\begingroup$ These temporary bans always last at most one week. It looks like you haven't flagged posts in the last three days, so it should be at most four days left. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Fischer Sep 18 '15 at 19:55
  • $\begingroup$ @DanielFischer: I can't figure out what a hellban is from following that link. Can you clarify? $\endgroup$ – user98602 Sep 20 '15 at 22:08
  • $\begingroup$ It's when one is banned, but isn't notified of it. One can do things, but those aren't shown to other users of the site. The old flag hell-ban was that once the flag-weight dropped too low, the flags were silently ignored by the system. No chance of recovery, no notification. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Fischer Sep 20 '15 at 22:33
