Until a few days ago, the calculation was:

  • default 10 per day
  • one bonus flag per 1000 reputation
  • maximum 100

But we have now tweaked this to consider previous flagging history: flags by people who flag well are OK

so:

  • default 10 per day
  • one bonus flag per 2000 reputation
  • one bonus flag per 20 "flag weight" above the default
  • maximum 100

Which then demands the question: what is flag weight?

Simply: it is the way we order flagged posts. Flags by known-good flaggers get seen first. This information is shown on your own profile if it is interesting (not too close the the default, i.e. you've done something worth showing), but basically:

  • start at 100
  • +10 for a flagged post (+5 for a comment) that we did something about (or was basically valid)
  • -10 for a flagged post (-5 for a comment) that we suppressed as invalid
  • min 0, max 750 (but non-linear above 500)
  • IMPORTANT CHANGE - if you flag so consistently badly that you reach 0 weight, flags will be suppressed

If your flag weight is getting low you can quickly recover it simply by flagging sensibly.

"I disagree with this""I disagree with this" is a bad reason to flag, as is adding a moderator-message to say "plz answer post is urgent mail me""plz answer post is urgent mail me".
