I have noticed that my daily limit of flags. On the attached picture it says "66 remaining flags" but it was much less several of weeks ago (about 40+ or 50+)

Flags remaining

Is is a feature (with amount of helpful flag growth, the flag daily limit grows ) or were there any limit changes on SO recently?

Update: That question has been answered here: On the recent changes to flagging and limits

As Shog mentioned in the link that Mat referenced , you're getting an extra flag-per-day per 2000, plus an initial default of 10.

So on SO you have 5800+ reputation, that means you're getting the daily bonus of flags. Basically the math works out, you're doing fine.

    I saw your answer with the calculations and I think it was very close to the correct value as I have used two or three flags today.
