Do flags revert?

(Thomas J Ralph) #1

I have a question do flags disappear?

For example a user can have a max of 5 flags and they get 7. This makes them unable to be a Regular.

Do these flags ever revert so that they can become regular?


(Joshua Rosenfeld) #2

The flags themselves don’t revert, however for Regular (TL3) it only looks at flags within the last 100 days (at least by default). Assuming those flags were all received recently, they’ll need to wait quite some time before being eligible for TL3 again.

Another note: only flags that a staff member agrees with count towards this limit. If a moderator defers or disagrees with a flag, it isn’t counted as far as TL3 is concerned.
