My flag set includes only 14 threads right now. I use this feature for 2 reasons. Most of them are archived links I want to keep as references to answer FAQ.

The other way I use flags is to temporarely keep a good thread handy. Not beeing a native English speaker, I will need to read that Googlenoia thread many times over to understand it in full. When done, I usually delete the flag. I sometimes print some threads I find to be of great value.

So, how about your set of flags?

Pretty much the same here. I flag posts I have a particular interest in (e.g. the Paid Inclusion Lycos/Fast thread). Printing is a must for me as well...used a ton of paper on Brett's A-Z steps for a successful site thread :).

I only flag messages that I post a question to or see a question I want to see the answer for, usually the ones that normally dont catch my attention otherwise.

I flag posts I feel I may need later but don't apply to me now.
Never use it actually, it's always that post I didn't flag I need, but it's nice to know they are close and I could possibly save some time some time.

I use it to keep track of FAQ-type reference threads for new members.

For my own purposes, I usually have some long-range development plan in mind, often involving scripts or .htaccess -i.e., items I'm not particularly well-versed in. If you read here over a period of time the pieces often start falling into place, but the answer comes from a composite of 3 or 4 threads gathered over time. I use the flags to help gather them in.

I flag ongoing discussions I want to keep track of for awhile and also threads that I will visit again for research purposes (meaning: full of good stuff). I have far too many flagged at this point.

Just like keywords : the more you put, the less they score! :)

I use for those FAQ threads that are hard for me to locate with the Site Search. If I spend more than a minute or two trying to find a thread that I remember for certain, then when I do turn it up, it gets a flag.

Hehehe, how true! Less is more.

Same for me but I also flag posts of great interest which have a slow turnaround time (those that are still alive but only get a response once or twice a day). This saves me hunting for them with either search or the history list.
