From my understanding of how flag weights work, the flag weight should always be a multiple of 5, as you get ±10 for posts and ±5 for comments. My flag weight is currently "537.2867". How on earth did this happen, and why? It seems quite illogical.
Between 0 and 500, it's a set +5 or +10 points for each valid flag (negative if invalid).
Once you crack the 500 mark, it becomes wibbly-wobbly:
- start at 100
- +10 for a flagged post (+5 for a comment) that we did something about (or was basically valid)
- -10 for a flagged post (-5 for a comment) that we suppressed as invalid
- min 0, max 750 (but non-linear above 500)
- IMPORTANT CHANGE - if you flag so consistently badly that you reach 0 weight, flags will be suppressed
