The picture below shows my question.
426 = 417 + 8 + 1
3 != 2
7 != 3 + 1
As far as I know, there are a few things that can happen to flags.
- They are marked helpful
- They are marked disputed
- They are marked invalid
Where did the missing numbers go?
Your other flags were simply ignored or acted on in the wrong way.
I had the same issue with some flags, they weren't acted on in a flag-resolving way. Some of them were too old for manual correction by moderators.
