Occasionally the 10K tools show up in my TeX.SE "status bar" showing the number of suggested flags to review:

enter image description here

The above indicates that there are 8 flags up for review. However, clicking it reveals only 4 flags up for review:

The consistency between the actual and indicated is never the same. Perhaps a bug that can be fixed? This might be browser-dependent and/or rely on using browser cookies (not sure). I'm using Google Chrome 19.0.1084.56 m.

  • Maybe the yellow count contains all flags, while the red count doesn't contain your own flags and the one you already acted upon. The red count then would require a more complex database query than the yellow count, so possibly SE decided that this is a good way to optimize.

  • @Werner -- yes, there's an accepted "answer" at that location, but it certainly isn't a definitive explanation. however, this is definitely the same problem i just reported, so the new question should be closed as a duplicate. Jun 30 '13 at 21:01
  • Did this ever get resolved or explained? I have just started to see these and it is very confusing!

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a design-requirement that was recently removed.
