Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

We have got 2 reports in math.SE that some users below 100 reputation cannot post any answers or questions. They keep receiving

Oops! Your question couldn't be submitted because: users with less than 100 reputation can only post questions every X minutes; try again later.

(X = 3 or 20), even if they have waited long enough or not asked any questions before. One user, Pierre-Yves Gaillard, tried to post a question at here, but also failed with the same message.

If a user can't post any answers or questions, how can they report that they can't post any answers or questions? :D – Maxim Zaslavsky Aug 21 '10 at 20:06

Apologies for the inconvenience, this was indeed a bug on our end.

Fix should now be deployed.
