Flags do you have to do to change your whistle status.


I don't care if people know me. I'm just there. I'm like the lead
based paint in a Chinese sweat shop. There.

I don't think they tell you and I'm not sure if anyone has counted (or posted for that matter); the purpose of the whistle is to get rid of unsuitable/malicious submissions, not just to increase your rank (that's why they don't show you how many wistle points you have). One thing though, I do believe you get deducted more points than you get; for example, if you flag a submission and it's found suitable (it passes) you lose more whistle than you would gain if you flag a submission and it fails. SO BE CAREFUL AND WHEN IN DOUBT, ASK A REVIEW MOD!!!!

It takes a pure heart, a wise mind and some balls to flag properly. Dont be a stat whore, and just fulfill your duty. Whistle is the the feature that shows the most how well you understand newgrounds affairs, or so I suppouse, cause I am not certainly the best whistle example.

Some of those you've flagged may not have been examined by a review mod, remember, a certain amount of people have to flag a submission before it comes under the watch of a review mod!

For more info check out the FAQ under "whistle ststus".

I would take it seriously if I were you, like what was said before, "don't be a stat whore."; just flag the abusive ones and be patient. Of course, it's your choice, I can't force you to do anthing.

Actually, if you flag a submission and it passes you don't lose any points. If you did it would be pretty harsh. For example, someone could have submitted a stolen flash which most people weren't aware was stolen.

There's an extensive FAQ on whistles here, although some stuff is outdated such as the fact that gold and deity are now a set number of whistle points rather than being dependent on how many points the user with the most has.
