Who or how are flags being handled while a mod is chosen? Seems some flags are being handled while others are not.

Some flags are automatically handled by the community -- for example, enough rude or spam flags deletes a post and enough comment flags deletes a comment. These actions don't require human intervention.

Otherwise, the SE community managers handle flags on beta sites until moderators are chosen.

  • Just wish it was consistent and not bias as I've seen.

  • Now it seems like the flag got processed, yet the earlier comment got deleted immediately. Questionable. Thanks for answering Monica
