It seems like a bit of a backtrack to limit users to only a certain number of moderation flags in the day. I understand why the limit is in place, so people can't "spam" moderators with useless flags (is this even the reason?). But those of us who use them appropriately should be able to continue flagging things that we find to be inappropriate. I've used all of my flags for the day, at least the normal, non-spam-offensive flags. So now if I see something which is not an answer, etc I am unable to flag anything further until the magical reset point at midnight UTC.
It would be nice if there was some way for helpful flaggers to get additional flag votes during the consecutive day if their flags continue to prove helpful to moderators. I think a good implementation would be to still allow the same limit and forbid them from continuing to flag until a majority of those flags have already been reviewed. If the user maintains a helpful record throughout the day, they should continue to receive 3 or 5 more flag votes as they continue running out so they can keep flagging things here and there and remain helpful. Once the user gets 2 or 3 declined flags for the day, they will cease to receive additional flag votes for the day and any remaining bonus flag votes they had should be revoked.
If this can't be implemented, could someone explain why it shouldn't and/or why the limit for number of moderation flags per day should remain limited as such?
