Having trouble submitting question on Stackoverflow

So I'm trying to post a question to StackOverflow, but I keep getting the error that users with less than 125 reputation can only ask one question every 20 minutes. However, I haven't posted a question in over a week! Anyone know why this is happening?

  • I'm 99% sure that deleted questions count towards that limit. Have you asked and then deleted any questions in the last 20 minutes or so? Jul 5, 2012 at 14:41
  • @jad nope, more likely the same case as in the dupe. Jul 5, 2012 at 14:42
  • Julian - try posting from home or computer with different IP and it should work. Jul 5, 2012 at 14:43
  • Unfortunately I'm at work so I can't do that, but I'll try logging out and seeing if that works Jul 5, 2012 at 14:43

    Seems likely that someone else has been posting that's on the same IP address. I guess I'll just be waiting and have to try again later! Jul 5, 2012 at 14:44
  • @ShaWizDowArd In response to your "nope", I'm pretty sure that deleted questions do count towards the limit =) But I agree, the dupe is the culprit here. I didn't know about that. Jul 5, 2012 at 14:46

    @jad sure, deleted questions count but I would say it's 50/50 chance generally speaking and he said "I haven't posted a question in over a week" - anyway now you know. :) Jul 5, 2012 at 14:48
