@Vivikta Since you're mainly involved in raising citation banner flags. I would encourage you to help users in finding valid sources and update the answers. Especially to new users.
rather than simply flagging them.
And old answers too.
Also check if the user is deleted user, in that case adding citation banner won't make any sense.
Either you or any high rep users can add sources to that answer or if any valid sources can not be added then raise delete flag.
6:18 AM
@TheLittleNaruto I would have done the same to "help". However, it's very time-consuming. Plus, my basic motif in raising citations is to salvage the Best answer in that Question because generally in the Older questions- people have accepted non-sourced answers and ignored good answers severely. So, adding the banner at least will help with a bit of Quality Control. :-))
@Vivikta Going through old answers posts and looking for unsourced statements itself is tedious tasks and time consuming.

Q: Guru diksha for lord vishnu

Nishant guptaI am a lord vishnu devotee but i have heard no mantra chanting works without spiritual initiation from a guru. Can anyone recomend me where can i take initiation and get lord vishnu ashtakshar mantra as guru mantra?

@TheLittleNaruto Not if you're reading a lot / or can read a lot. And in that case: flagging for "low-quality" material is easier and lot-less time consuming than finding a source and adding it. However, I do take your suggestion seriously and will try to add relevant sources (especially for New answers or Deleted users), whenever I can find time or interest or energy for that. :P

@Vivikta Can you limit citation banner flags to 7-8 per day? we are getting lots of such flags from users and mechanically adding them is tedious task. We are in talks to CMs to get them added through community review or through other ways. Meanwhile we want every user to restrict citation banner and old posts deletion to max of 7-8 each.. All other flags have no restrictions
