There are no automatic account suspension. Each suspension is instated by a moderator or SE staff, who fixes the length. There are some basic guidelines but ultimately it is up to the moderator suspending (up to a year). The automatic VLQ flags are often triggered by very short answers. But the automatic aspect of certain flags is really a tangent. We ...

My bad. I had just closed the question and did not go directly for deletion. But with respect to the general aspect of the meta post, a flag can actually be marked helpful yet no visible and/or immediate moderator action be taken regarding it, or even some action can be taken which was not what the flagger had in mind.

When you flag an answer as "not an answer" or "very low quality", the answer is pushed into the Low Quality review queue where other users can judge whether in their opinion your flag was justified. In this case, all three reviewers chose the "Looks OK" option, which resulted in your flag being "disputed". After that review, another user flagged the post as "...

The best course of action, which I believe you've promoted in this specific Question, is to post your own Answer. The source of "potential errors" in this case appears to be some ambiguity in the formulation of the problem (terminological), and I would personally welcome such clarifications (together with their implications) being posted on one of my ...

A full list of badges with clarifications can be found here: What are the badges I can earn on each site, and what are the exact criteria for earning each badge?, but let me answer your specific questions: Shouldn't this description be "First bounty you manually award on another person's question's answer"? That's Altruist, and the description is ...

"Very low quality" should generally be interpreted as "of such poor quality that it is unsalvagable." For example, VLQ is for unintelligible grammar, horrible/unreadable formatting, trolling, or content that makes no sense whatsoever. It shouldn't be applied towards posts whose only problems are with equations being images (unless the image meets the above ...

is there a way to flag a user profile directly? There isn't, only posts and comments can be flagged. If not, what should one do instead? Besides using the contact link, you can also flag one of your posts and explain the situation (include a link to the problematic profile). This may, especially on weekends, lead to a faster reaction than the contact ...

How can one draw the moderators attention to problematic suggested edits? Can one flag problematic suggested edits? The interface in the review queue for suggested edits does not directly offer any option to contact the moderators. It is not directly possible to flag the suggestion. However, one can flag the post instead. If one sees the edit on the ...

In general, you can flag one of your own posts for moderator attention, clearly indicating the flag is not about that post but the deleted one and you can't flag it in the regular way. You have 500 characters in the flag message so that should fit. However, since you wrote an answer on that question, you can also find it back via the recently deleted ...

This question and answer on meta.stackexchange.com gives a solution: Reporting an inappropriate or offensive user name I think it applies to all the SE sites: Flag a question/answer/comment by such a user for moderator attention as "Other". Explain you are flagging due to their name/avatar/about me section being offensive to you. If you cannot ...

It is the same. I think it is duplicated (the pun must not be missed) because: they did want to have the "needs improvement" to be the same as the standard "close" dialog (which users with 3000+ points have access to). they wanted "duplicate" separately since it does not really fall under needs improvement, or also to encourage its use. For users with ...
