A feature I noticed on Twitter today that I really enjoyed was:
In the past when I flagged stuff on twitter stuff would go into the black hole. I never felt any sense of closure.
With this new feature I feel like my flag mattered, this makes me more inclined to flag more.
Does it make sense to notify users who flag after a flag is handled by an admin if there is a delay of more than N minutes AND flag was helpful?
Something along the lines of “A moderator reviewed your flag and found it helpful”?
I really like this cause it encourages flagging and to be honest there is not enough flagging going on on many sites. But I get the other side that this could have unknown side effects.
