There's the yellow "pending flags" indicator, but this is what appears on the "flagged posts" page:

enter image description here

Sometimes there actually are some flagged posts to be dealt with, at other times none, but that indication remains there for various periods, sometimes a day, with no evident means of getting rid of it.

No harm done, but it is distracting, and causes time to be wasted in clicking that link.

Bug, or as-designed?

    \$\begingroup\$ I'm pretty sure that rawbrawb's answer is correct and this is a side-effect of the top bar count still including flags that you acted on. I also vaguely recall us trying to fix that at one point. I'll have to follow up with the devs to see what actually happened. \$\endgroup\$ – Adam Lear Aug 6 '13 at 0:10

These are flags that you have acted on but have not been processed or flagged to completion by others. Look in the right hand column and there will be a count of flags that you have operated on like this: enter image description here

  • \$\begingroup\$ Yup: I've always acted on any flag the moment I spot it, so that shouldn't be it - but it is, hence the bug report. \$\endgroup\$ – Anindo Ghosh Jul 28 '13 at 5:39
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Kortuk Now it's even more FUBAR, the yellow dot count is out of sync with the list of flags. \$\endgroup\$ – placeholder Jul 28 '13 at 11:06
