Since I've been on the site and learned what is an appropriate form of question and what's not I've done my part to flag questions not appropriate for the site. And most of the questions I flag are quickly closed for the very reason I've flagged them.
When questions are closed, the question gets a small box explain why it's closed and who closed it. But I've noticed for the most part my name doesn't show up on the list and I don't get any reputation (there have been one or two times my name does show up and I do get reputation for helping moderate the site so I know you do get rep for helping moderate).
How is it determined who gets credit for flagging a question, and why am I not getting credit for helping close inappropriate questions?
