What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I just tried to post a question but it's telling me that I can only post 50 questions per mont, however I've just checked and I count 49 (If I sort the question by most recent, the 50th was posted in June). Is it a bug or am I missing something?

Also why this 50 questions limit? Is it to prevent abuses? In that case, why not increase the limit as your reputation goes up?

Deleted questions are included in this tally, so this is why it looks a bit off to you.

Yes, this was done to prevent abuse.

Ok I see, thanks, I guess I'll have to wait a few days before posing again then. Just curious though, can a moderator overrule the block? Maybe look at the user's questions and if there's nothing really wrong or abusive, remove the block for this month? – this.lau_ Aug 13 '11 at 17:46
@Laurent: No. That's really quite a lot of questions for one person to ask in a month's time - even if they are decent questions. And moderators really don't have the time to sit down and review them all. – Shog9 Aug 13 '11 at 17:56
