Some low-rep users cannot post anywhere

I couldn't answer my own question due to the following error, even after captcha passed.

Oops! Your question couldn't be submitted because:

users with less than 100 reputation can only post questions every 3 minutes; try again later.

Of note, I had a hard time wasting like 10 minutes to post a feedback here, similarly witnessing "oops" message so many times, which I think is not a good user experience.

I'm assuming it is a bug, no?

"I couldn't answer my own question [because I was blocked from posting another question]"?


To answer you own question either post an answer or edit the existing question body. Post come in different types on SOFUE{*}, and it is important to use the right one for each task.


  • Stack Overflow
  • Server Fault
  • Super User
  • Stack Exchange

that is to say "these sites".

Actually, this is intentional to prevent manual user spamming. You care read about the reasoning behind rate-limiting on Jeff's blog.

It happened to me as well. Even i tried nearly 5 to 10 minutes later. Then too, I had the problem. But, mean while I submitted comments and upvoted an answer those things worked for me very nice. Will those things increases the 3 minutes due time as well? Much worried. Thanks in advance. – Avatar Aug 22 '10 at 10:15
