I just noticed that the thread in the screen shot I posted below has -1 flag. Negative 1. How is that possible?

I believe it gives the member the ability to remove a flag they had given to the thread if they so chose.

But all threads start with zero flags. You can't click unflag when there are zero flags, and to have -1 flags means that when there were zero flags somehow someone was able to click unflag resulting in negative 1.

ETA:

It just doesn't add up.

Then you should be congratulated for knocking three votes off the thread. A spiritual triple-star for you!

You have a magic computer! Do it 1,334 more times and bring the OP down to zero...and then do it again!

Ever wondered what Tourette syndrome is like..? Don't lie - you know you have thought about this on many occasions.


Go Flag, than Un Flag, Flag, Un Flag, ect...give it a try!


It's Liberating.

Might not be such a bad feature to implement in certain forums. Politics would probably be a no

I noticed you have a -1 flag now.

Not in your case,but it would be such a bad idea to implement.
