This answer says we get 'one bonus flag per 20 "flag weight" above the default'. Now that flag weight appears to be dead and "helpful flags" is king, how are the daily flag limits calculated?

The FAQ page just says "You are awarded additional bonus flags when you flag correctly.". I'm hoping for a bit more detail than that.

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.

Flag weight is not dead. It is simply no longer shown, but is still calculated and stored in the backend, much like accept rate.

Additional bonus flags are granted by flag weight and one per every 2000 reputation you make.

"Flag weight ... is dead." ? – nneonneo Mar 9 '13 at 8:36
@nneonneo That answer has incorrect information. Jeff himself says here that flag weight is still there, but simply not shown. – Raghav Sood Mar 9 '13 at 8:39
Gah, I missed that duplicate. The comments under Waffles' post weren't clear enough to me, apparently. – nneonneo Mar 9 '13 at 8:40
