Dear all friendly mathematicians,

When I tried to post my question on this site - I saw

"You can only post once every 40 minutes."

Is there a restriction on that in general? Or is that due to my low reputation? How much reputation do I need to gain to avoid such an issue?

Do I need to get that threshold reputation on each of the stackexchange site to avoid this issue on each site?

Many thanks!

M

The threshold is 125 points. You are exempt on the site where you have that many points not all sites.

To note, all questions asked in the network count. Actually it is even IP based.

See The Complete Rate-Limiting Guide for further details.

  • $\begingroup$ thanks - that is all clear! $\endgroup$ Aug 5 at 23:26
  • $\begingroup$ I also see "You can only ask 6 questions in a 24-hour period." is this due to the reputation threshold below which value? thanks! $\endgroup$ Aug 10 at 4:28
  • $\begingroup$ That is a restriction that does not depend on reputation points. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ thanks - does that restriction apply to 6 questions per stack exchange site? or the sum 6 for all questions on all sites? $\endgroup$ Aug 10 at 17:10
  • $\begingroup$ It's per site, and only in place on a few sites. Stack Overflow, Super User, Server Fault, our site. $\endgroup$
