I noticed that everytime I alert staff about something my ave. flags per thread (definitely) and ave. stars per post (not 100% sure) seem to go down. Is this intentional to discourage abuse and keep staff from getting swamped? That would be understandable and I don't have a problem with it.

I just saw it never mentioned and if is unintentional it might be a symptom of a potentially bigger and more important bug!

A complaint creates a thread in the staff forums for review

Its not a penalty. Its just math.

It's a side-effect of the fact that every alert starts a new thread (visible only to the Mods).
So this necessarily brings down the averages slightly.

Haha, and now I feel stupid because that seems kinda obvious now you pointed it out.

Thanks for the quick reply!
