When viewing the flag history page, I find that each entry has a number following the title of the flagged post. For instance:

example flag entry

What does the circled number represent?

  • \$\begingroup\$ @KingDuken I didn’t assume it was related to responses within the post. I thought it was related to a counter of flags, or something similar - which would actually be kind of useful to know. \$\endgroup\$ – Blair Fonville Jan 3 '18 at 16:42

I wondered about that myself, and I eventually concluded that it's the number of answers that the question has.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Ah ha. Never thought of that. I thought maybe it was a counter of concurrent flags, or something. \$\endgroup\$ – Blair Fonville Jan 1 '18 at 1:33
