# Asking questions in the same subject repeatedly but without flooding

I'm reading a book in basic algebraic geometry and sometimes I don't know some details of the proofs and examples the author gives. I'm a really beginner in commutative algebra and algebraic geometry and I'm trying to understand this subject by myself in my summer vacations.

So, I'm using this site to follow this book which it helped me a lot.

In this week, I'm studying the chapter which explains the concept of dimension of a variety, hence I've been asked four questions with the same subject (dimension):

Why $k(\mathbb A^n)=k(T_1,\ldots,T_n)$?

Help in this easy lemma about dimension in algebraic geometry

If $X=\{x\}$, then $\dim(X)=0$

Dimension of a curve

I didn't asked these questions in the same day to make sure I'm not flooding the site and I tried to give the context of every question and make clear what are my doubts and what I know of the subject.

I follow the meta site daily, I know the rules of the main site and I don't think I broke any of them. However, my last question was downvoted and one user said me it happened maybe because I'm asking many questions with the same subject repeatedly.

I'm not asking why this question was downvoted, I know it's a subjective matter, but I believe that a downvote has a function to help us to meet the quality standards of the MSE site.

So, I would like to know if what I'm doing is under the quality standards of the MSE site, Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks a lot

• @GrigoryM Ok, that's not exactly what he said, anyway his comment make me think about this. Dec 22, 2013 at 19:50
• If no user said so, please do not state that one user said so, even if what some user did say made you think about whatever it made you think about.

• Well, since the OP didn't use quotation marks, I think the way he rephrased it is quite valid. Jan 4, 2014 at 15:56
• @dreamer Let us wait for you to discover that somebody "rephrased" some of your words to make them say something quite different and we will see if your opinion stays the same.
