Yesterday I had 10 maximum flags. I flagged two posts for attention: one to be migrated to meta, and one that wasn't really a question. Today I have 12 maximum flags. Was I credited with a higher maximum for my actions, or was this something else?

Might flag this to test if I lose moderator flag points for miss-flagging ;) – Nick Josevski Sep 21 '11 at 13:14

It's because your flag weight increased by 40, probably as result of good flagging.

See this post for the full details: Are the new moderator flag limits sufficiently high?

The relevant line is:

one bonus flag per 20 "flag weight" above the default (capped at 500 flag weight)
