I've just recently posted a question on Arqade, and I was going to post another one about a separate topic, when I got a message that I've "asked 2 questions recently." The last time I asked another question anywhere on Stack Exchange before the one on Arqade was in November 21. Why am I being limited even though I have not asked multiple questions on Arqade recently?

This isn't a long-term ban, it is just for 2 days because it thinks I have posted too much too recently or something.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Have you asked and deleted a question anywhere on the network in the last day or two? How long was it between questions on Arqade? I think there's a 40 minute cool down for low-reputation users. – Catija Dec 11 '17 at 0:51
  • To those who think this is a duplicate: I can post again in 2 days, so it's not a long-term ban. I The last time other than today that I've posted something on Arquade was in November, @Catija – Andy Herbert Dec 11 '17 at 0:59
  • No, the 40 minute limit is network wide. – Catija Dec 11 '17 at 1:05
  • Are you able to post on Arqade Meta? That might be a better place for this question, if so (main meta can unfortunately be quite a harsh environment for people who aren't familiar with it). – Rand al'Thor Dec 11 '17 at 1:06
  • What about migrating this to Arqade Meta? – iBug Dec 11 '17 at 1:14

Alright, checking things out (I'm one of the Arqade mods) - looks like this applies to you. You've run into the rate limit because your questions haven't been super well received (we don't get exact details, but I can see that there's not a lot of positive votes on them, for example).

I think the thing that caught you specifically today was a question of yours got deleted in an automatic clean up process (specifically the one here that mentions "RemovedAbandonedClosed"). That, added to the other issues with your other questions being poorly received is what likely landed you with the 2 day rate limit.

  • Yes, now I remember posting a question a while ago that was deleted, but I think I posted it weeks ago... – Andy Herbert Dec 11 '17 at 3:45
