I just noticed that the flag weight on my profile was displayed as a float. Is this normal?

Once your flag weight gets above 500 it doesn't rise in 10 point increments with ever flag that's marked "helpful".

There's a complicated formula, but basically as you get closer to 750 each flag is worth less and less. There are a lot of posts on Meta Stack Overflow about this - specifically this question which is identical to yours.

However, if a flag is "declined" then you lose 10 points regardless of your current flag weight.
