Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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)
