I'm fine with that, just that since my (along with many other users I flag with) whistle is garbage, it won't carry any weight. Not that I'm trying to bitch about a .gif, but doesn't a review need to be flagged by a person with a normal or better whistle, then others who flagged with a garbage whistle get the points? Because if that is the case I can see a group of garbage whistles all flagging reviews to no avail in the future.
Yes, your whistle won't carry any weight but you will get points by flagging abusive content/reviews if other users with normal or better whistles flag them as well and said content/review gets deleted. This means that you simply must keep up what you were already doing until you get your normal whistle back.
My alt was unaffected, though, so maybe I should flag with him as well? Or would that be against the rules?
I'm pretty sure there's nothing wrong about using an alt to flag, but keep in mind that you need several flags in order to get something to be seen by the mods.
