How many questions can a user ask per day in a math.stackexchange?

Does the number depend on anything?

I tried to find the answer but unsuccessfully.

    $\begingroup$ These are hard limits, system-imposed, you can't get beyond them. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Fischer May 28 '15 at 21:22

    $\begingroup$ and hot to handle it here if one has app. 80 questions per month ? 1 month means 30 days from the 1st questions or 1 day of the month to the last day of the month ? $\endgroup$ – EFmiza May 28 '15 at 21:24

    $\begingroup$ If you have 80 questions to ask in one month, it means that you're not learning right. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila May 28 '15 at 21:32

    $\begingroup$ 1 month means the last 30 days: meta.math.stackexchange.com/questions/2464/… You can also have a look to other discussions here on meta tagged (rate-limiting). $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak May 28 '15 at 23:41

    $\begingroup$ @Martin I am not too firm in my opinion. But I was operating under the impression that if this question is closed and positively voted, it will stay and so future users with the same question will find it and will read the other post. But you make a good point too about there being possibly too much information in the other post. $\endgroup$ – Willie Wong May 29 '15 at 9:05

One user can only ask 6 questions per day. But there is also another limit of 50 questions per month (more precisely, per 30 days). So if you ask 6 questions every day for several days in a row, it might happen that for some period you will not be able to post questions at all.

These question quotas are not active on all sites in the SE-network. Here you can see when they were introduced on math.SE.

There are also some additional limits for new users and users who asked several questions which were not well-received. (Asking too many questions which receive many downvotes might even result in post-ban, which means that you are no longer able to ask questions here.)

You can find much more details in The Complete Rate-Limiting Guide.
