I am answering questions about my questions in comments from my cell. However, I'm getting a message that I can only post 11 comments in 24 hours. Now, I can't answer comments on my questions.

I propose this limit be removed for commenting your own question, so it doesn't appear we are abandoning questions for an entire day. Luckily, one can load the question in the browser to bypass this restriction, but I find the webpage slow. Version 0.1.68.

    Thats odd, I'm sure I've posted more than 11 comments before. For example today I've posted 25 Commented Nov 24, 2013 at 23:23

    It's especially strange that this seems to be mobile only. Which suggests it's a bug Commented Nov 24, 2013 at 23:38

    There's a separate rate limit limit for the new writable Stack Exchange API that the app is using. From other posts that have been posted here, the limits are quite a bit lower than the normal desktop website.

  • @StevenV Any idea if they will increase that limit? Commented Nov 25, 2013 at 18:23
  • meta.stackexchange.com/questions/191305/… makes it seem like it will be revisited at some point

As stated, the API both has different throttling than the website and that's something we're considering to modify for the future. For this scenario since I agree that it's very annoying we've gone ahead and bumped the base number of comments people can make using the API so you shouldn't see this again (unless you're really spamming).

  • YAY! Thank you @Kasra! May I ask as an aside: how are the limits being determined currently, for the API? Commented Nov 26, 2013 at 17:16
