I have been going through some old posts, flagging them as necessary. But I have noticed that the number of posts that I am able to flag is continually staying at ten. It seems that the new flagging system has messed this up.

10 flags

I am able to keep flagging posts even after 10, so I know it isn't a UI bug. This is a very big problem, because I can flag infinitely many times. And I am pretty sure this isn't the intended behavior of the overlords

This isn't because I am being awarded more flags. I flag more than 13 posts in 5 minutes, and I can keep going without restriction

Some of the flags were accepted, so now my number is up to 13. But it is still staying at 13

I was unable to reproduce this. Flagging your question resulted in 9 remaining flags. – Travis J Jun 14 '13 at 19:31
Big question is can you keep flagging more than 10 (i.e. quite critical bug) or you get blocked and just see 10 flags remaining meaning just UI bug? – Shadow Wizard Jun 14 '13 at 20:54
Also, have you noticed this multiple times? Flagging correctly can increase the number of flags you get per day, so that could make it look like you're not using up flags. – hammar Jun 14 '13 at 21:00
-1 just for the lazy, soulless black ellipses. Every self-respecting bug report needs red freehand circles. – American Luke Jun 15 '13 at 21:19
maybe its related to Number of flags remaining increased – Jehof Jun 25 '13 at 6:20
Maybe the flags are silently ignored. Can you check your flagging history? Maybe post screenshot from there? – Shadow Wizard Jun 25 '13 at 7:58
maybe useful flags wont be counted or maybe you are getting extra flags for useful flags. – prince Jun 26 '13 at 9:06
It seems like this is resolved, so shouldn't it be status completed? – Ral Zarek Jul 4 '13 at 8:09

This seems as though it has been unintentionally solved thanks to all of the changes with flags

Now I am once again a mere mortal of flagging, who must wait till the day's end to go on the hunt for bad posts again.

On the recent changes to flagging and limits

Oh, shoot - I forgot to circle back on this. There was a period of time between the initial rollout of the flag changes and now where close flags were unlimited - thanks for reporting it! – Shog9 Jul 9 '13 at 4:57
