Is there a limit on how many questions I can ask?

How many posts can you ask on Stack Overflow itself? I see a limit for 50 questions per month; does this hold for all members?

Right now, you've answered your own question. Do you have reason to suspect it's not 50/month for certain users? – user149432 May 11 '11 at 14:10
I wonder. If you answer 50 questions, you should probably be able to ask more questions. – jjnguy May 11 '11 at 14:12
@jjnguy I'd say they should be determined to be quality answers in some way, either via upvotes or accepts, otherwise it's easily gameable. But that's not such a terrible idea... – Daniel DiPaolo May 11 '11 at 14:14
@Mark: You're also limited to 6 questions in 24 hours. (And I'd really like to know when this limit came into existence.) – Hendrik Vogt May 11 '11 at 14:15
This apply to all members, even those with more than 10K reputation and I believe even diamond moderators. It's a simple check in code behind. – Shadow Wizard May 11 '11 at 14:18

The number of questions you can ask is outlined in Is there a limit on how many questions I can ask?

There is no (current) limit to the number of answers or comments you can make in a month.

Note: The limits are fairly new so you can expect to see users with greater than 50 questions in a 30 day period, or greater than 5 questions in 24 hours historically. Also, it might look to you as if someone has posted more than 6 questions in 24 hours, however bear in mind that stackoverflow runs on UTC, so the 24 hour period doesn't mesh with midnight-midnight in your timezone, even less so if the site uses a rolling 24 hour period.
