Why is there a limit on number of posts I can flag?

I haven't noticed it before, but recently I found that whenever I flag something for moderator attention, that flag count gets reduced, even though all but one of those was deemed helpful.

Will I not be able to flag any more posts after my flag count hits zero?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Don't Worry, your flag count will be re-freshed next day. – Lucifer Jun 22 '12 at 6:40

How many flags do I have?

When you start out you are alloted 10 flags per-day. This number may increase to up to 100 flags per-day:

  • You get one bonus flag per 2000 reputation.
  • You are awarded additional bonus flags when you flag correctly.


The amount of flags can be reduced if you flag incorrectly

It's a daily limit on flags and the number is restored the next day - in UTC.
