My flag limit is increasing day by day. I haven't noticed before how many flag I can raise. But since I am noticing it is increased a lot. In last week, I have raised above 200 helpful flags.

I have noticed to increase it from 36. Daily it is increasing by 1. Now it is reached to 40.

Is it good/ bad? On what basis, flag limit is getting increasing daily?

How many flags do I have?

When you start out you are alloted 10 flags per-day. This number may increase to up to 100 flags per-day:

  • You get one bonus flag per 2000 reputation.
  • You are awarded additional bonus flags when you flag correctly.


A Good Thing

The amount of flags can be reduced if you flag incorrectly

  • didn't know about that 100 flags per day part. thanks for that information :) +1
