What's a normal percentage of declined/disputed flags for reviewers? 1%? 10%? 25%?

I've been trying to help with review queues and I want to make sure I'm not causing more headaches than normal.

  • I feel the same way, and hope someone will give guidance on this. Intuitively, I think about 10% decline/dispute rate is OK, but I have no basis for this. – ab2 Jan 19 '16 at 1:51

    FWIW, my figures are 256:helpful, 14:declined, 81,disputed (total 354 - work out the % values yourself). But to be honest, I'm not sure exactly what helpful, declined, disputed actually mean in this context. – FumbleFingers Jan 19 '16 at 18:44

    These add up to 351, but that is close enough. That is a 73% helpful rate, a 4% declined rate and a 23% disputed rate. What this means, I postulate, is that you don't make many mistakes, but that you are less tolerant of crap than many reviewers. – ab2 Jan 19 '16 at 21:19
  • FWIW, I'm at 54/2/1 in helpful.declined/disputed, which are roughly 95/3/1%. – jimm101 Jan 20 '16 at 18:11
  • Where are these statistics found? – Lawrence Jan 22 '16 at 16:00

    @Lawrence On your profile page, make sure Activity is shown ("tab" at the top left) and then click the Helpful flag total in the box on the right. – Andrew Leach Jan 22 '16 at 18:34
  • @AndrewLeach Thanks for the directions - I've found it now. SE keeps comprehensive statistics! – Lawrence Jan 23 '16 at 0:45
  • Another data point: 656/85% helpful, 20/2.6% declined, and 96/12.4% disputed. But that reflects that I don't bother to flag for low-quality or not-an-answer posts since a year or two ago, since so many of them were disputed or declined previously. – choster Jan 25 '16 at 19:19
  • I'm at 162/2/2, which is roughly 98%/1%/1%. – Vilmar Jan 26 '16 at 11:50
