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

I have just created an account with Stack Overflow. I was trying to post my first question regarding 'svnsync' and was disappointed to see the below error:

Oops! Your question couldn't be submitted because:

• Sorry, you are only allowed to ask 6 questions in a 24 hour period

I believe it remembers your IP and cookies :D. So "somebody" asked 6 question from your IP, or your computer before – fl00r May 12 '11 at 8:58

This filter also works on the IP level. It is possible that you share a public IP with many other computers, and that other users used these computers to ask other questions.

This is unfortunate, but there is no other good way to make that limit effective.
