Here is a question I posted not long ago. It wasn't particularly well-received (-1), but I finally got around to working out the problem some more and decided to post my answer in case anyone else cared to see. However, I got the following message before posting:
I found this to be somewhat odd since 1) I've answered another one of my own questions before, and 2) my reputation right now is just above 13k (not particularly high but high enough to indicate that I'm a frequent user/contributor of/to this site).
My question concerns how these different "warnings" or pop-ups are triggered. I recall, when I first joined, having a pop-up before I made a comment, before I asked a question, etc. Does anyone have any knowledge of how/when these different pop-ups/warnings are triggered and whether or not it has anything at all to do with frequency (e.g., having answered 1 or more of your own questions, made several comments, etc.) or reputation (e.g., no pop-ups for users with >20k rep)?
