Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When I have tried to ask several questions in a row, a message indicates that I have to wait for 20 minutes before posting my next question. Sometimes I want to ask more questions.

Why is that, and when is that limitation removed?

How much time are you even spending on writing these questions up properly? – random Dec 4 '09 at 3:51
How many questions do you have, and do they really need to come that fast and furious? Spend more time writing the question, formatting it, making sure the grammar/spelling/capitalization/punctuation is correct, and you'll find that the rate limiter won't be an issue anymore. – John Rudy Dec 4 '09 at 3:58
@Mirror51: FWIW... I've spent a little bit of time looking through your questions just now. While they're not terrible, you could really stand to spent a little bit of time proof-reading them after posting. Good way to kill some time while you're waiting to post your next question... – Shog9 Dec 4 '09 at 4:13

why is that

Some jackass abused the site and ruined it for everyone else.

and when is that limitation removed

When you get at least 100 reputation points. So, ask a few good questions, and when they get up-voted you'll be able to ask more good questions.

Or just join SU or SF and link your accounts. That gets you over the limit I think. – HAL 9000 Dec 4 '09 at 9:20
Yacoby: Nope, you have to be at least 200 rep on one site to get the bonus on the others. By then you're already over the hump. – John Rudy Dec 4 '09 at 12:49
