I went from flag weight 120 to flag weight 591 in a matter of hours because of the tips from this this question.

Flagging non-answers was great fun and I still want to keep going even though I am now all out of mod flags! Could we perhaps have a periodic Turkey Shoot where people with a flag weight over a certain amount get unlimited flags for the day and we can go shoot 'em up?

Love the title! But not turkey shoots. Spare some ammo for us amateurs. –  Awesome Poodles Mar 15 '11 at 6:56

Somebody, I mean somebody is getting me a new mouse. The left button is completely worn out. –  Tim Post Mar 15 '11 at 8:07

This is the first time I've ever seen the little orange number go over 250. –  mmyers Mar 15 '11 at 13:24

I'd love to see one designated clean-up day were the whole community is encouraged to do clean up en mass for 24 hours...and then I'd like to know how long it took the mods to go through the queues. –  Time Traveling Bobby Sep 19 '11 at 11:29
    
Stupid question, but what's a flag? –  ehime Sep 19 '11 at 16:01

“Like it? Well, I don’t see why I oughtn’t to like it. Does a boy get a chance to whitewash a fence every day?”

But in all seriousness, I've spent plenty of time on the http://stackoverflow.com/review page myself, and cleaning up the questions is like picking up a bit of trash on your street -- it makes the street better for you and all your neighbors.

Note that we have

  • increased the # of moderator flags available
  • you get more daily flags as you gain more flag weight, in a virtuous cycle
  • added the silver Deputy badge for reaching a flag weight of 500
  • added the gold Marshal badge for reaching a flag weight of 749

The Marshal badge is for a flag rep of 749; 750 is theoretically (but not practically) asymptotic. –  Kevin Vermeer Sep 19 '11 at 11:01
    
Ah, so the Marshall badge is why I recently see so many old "not an answer" flags popping up! :) –  Bart Kiers Sep 19 '11 at 13:54
