Why is there a limit on number of posts I can flag?

I haven't noticed it before, but recently I found that whenever I flag something for moderator attention, that flag count gets reduced, even though all but one of those was deemed helpful.

Will I not be able to flag any more posts after my flag count hits zero?

  • Don't Worry, your flag count will be re-freshed next day. – Lucifer Jun 22 '12 at 6:40

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.


The amount of flags can be reduced if you flag incorrectly


It's a daily limit on flags and the number is restored the next day - in UTC.
