Generic Bot is a chatbot meant to help with moderation tasks on Stack Overflow. You can find the bot in the SOBotics chatroom.

Flag Tracker (Userscript)

When you flag a post, this userscript will let you monitor that post and notify you in case the post gets edited.

If a post you flagged has been edited, you will be pinged by @GenericBot. Make sure you're pingable in the SOBotics chatroom room to receive the notifications.

  • This is a great tool! Helps notify if posts need to be reflagged for deletion, if they were prematurely edited out of the queue. – FrankerZ Jan 23 at 20:16
  • Any chance this wonderful tool could work for non-SO sites as well? – Gaurang Tandon Apr 21 at 11:32
