i'm vaguely understanding this flag contribution system.

thought i would enlighten others to my ignorance.

i think i have authored a few threads that managed to get a few flags.

i think i have contributed to other threads by flagging them.

yet, on my personal profile page, i have no flags, and my flag contribution level appears to be ... zilch.

a hiccup in the system?
am i doing something wrong?
is a conspiracy afoot?

anyone care to shed some light on this for me?


thanks in advance for helping me with my ignorance,
et

i'm re-reading this thread's opening & looking into it:

Is it possible that the number of flags is printed in a colour whch is masked by the dark background colour on your profle?
I know I had difficulty reading the number of my stars until I changed the background colour (which is really why I did it).

Edit; sorry, no, that theory doesn't work. On my profile the word "flags" and the number are the same colour.

I think it means how many flags you've gotten from threads you have made, but I don't I'm just guessing but if I'm wrong I would like to know how it works too lol.

I believe it is ... or at least I think I remember staff explaining that some members registered before a certain date (06-07) have the same issue of their flags not registering.

It takes quite a few flags before you little bar starts turning blue, a very looooooong excruciating time.

It isn't the issue in this case storm ...

If he had a low or zero flag count it would show that number. If you look at ET's profile the flag field is blank ... hence the glitch.

thanks for responding anyways. i thought the same thing, and tried it out, but no success. i tried highlighting the number like i was going to copy, cut & paste or something, and again.... i have no flags.

good thing i like the stars, i guess.

ah, maybe it will get "fixed" somehow. but i've been posting since 05, and if newer members are still around after 2012, i'd like to have some flags to demonstrate/suggest that my posts/threads aren't a waste of their time.

what will someone think of ET in 2015 when i am a ten year ATS vet, and i have absolutely no flags whatsoever?

although collecting stars is fun.


thanks,
et

I am not exactly sure the reason for the glitch but I registered prior to Esoteric Teacher and I don't have that issue in my profile...as well as many others.

I wish I knew more though...perhaps someone else can shed some light...

That's probably because you're not thinking of baseball.


Yeah, again if I remember correctly, the issue is capriciously selective on whom it afflicts.

Perhaps a false flag?!

that's what i'm talking about.

good looking out!

hey, when i re-design a new "mini" profile image for myself can i add this onto it & a little red warning tag for it? ya, i know this would probably confuse some, but hell, i'm already confused.

thanks though!

I think you are remembering correctly, SDog. I remember reading a thread about it too.

I can't seem to find that thread though

With The Mets record being as it is I have already dissociated the entire sport as a traumatic memory...

Me neither ... there's an explanation buried somewhere in the last year of the issues thread. I'm on it!

It wasn't anti...my pain implicitly suggests "Pro"...something that the Mets may want to look into becoming...Zing!

Okay...I am off topic and recuse myself...good luck with the issue guys...
