Up to a couple of days ago, I could go into my account and see me flag weight, but now it just seems to show how many helpful flags I've raised. It seems the badges related, Deputy and Marshal, have changed as well.

So what happened in the last couple of days?

See here please: What happened to flag weight?.

Accepted answer copied for convenience

It is dead.

We don't need (to see) flag weight!

From Waffles @ https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/119714/143601:

We now only show the number of helpful flags on your profile page (visible only to you) ... this number only ever increases.

Flag weight on the other hand, is gone ... it is dead.

It seems that Deputy has also been changed to 80 helpful flags along with the change to Marshal at 500 (holy crap!)

  • Wow, I got Deputy in the nick of time, I reached the required flag weight on Thursday...
