Related: Allow recovery from flag hellban
Note: I am not requesting different action in my case; but thought the behavior was worth bringing up.
I had 3 declined flags in row recently (it was a bad day). Because I hadn't flagged much recently, nothing happened. Then I flagged a few more posts in the subsequent days, all but one of which were "helpful" (one disputed).
Once I cast my 10th flag for the week, I hit the flag-ban (because I suddenly met the criteria). This made me realize that in this kind of scenario (3 declined flags after low activity), your 10th flag will automatically trigger the ban, no matter how good the other 7 are.
Granted, the ban will only be a couple days, so its probably not worth fixing, but I think it sends the wrong message to users: "You flagged some stuff well! Oh, but you also had some declined flags a few days ago, so you are now banned".
Is there a way to fix this?
