In the recent (deleted) meta.SO question:

@Shog9 posted the following screenshot of the rate-limit message that is shown to new users who post sub-par questions.

But there are pretty obvious problems with it:

You've asked 1 questions recently, some of which have not been received very well by the community. Everyone learns at their own pace, and it's okay to make some mistakes. However, the reception your questions have received thus far might ultimately block your account from asking questions entirely.

It's been 1 days since you asked your last question.

Obviously, if we're gonna ask people to use proper grammar, let's start by setting a good example ourselves.

    Why is that last sentence enclosed in <sarcasm> tags? – rene Sep 6 '18 at 17:29
  • @rene I'm only half serious here. I imagine that it normally takes more than 1 question to hit this message so nobody should be hitting this case. But the exception would be in the abusive case of creating new accounts and such - in which it's not gonna matter. – Mysticial Sep 6 '18 at 17:30
  • It takes at least two questions... On every site except Stack Overflow. On SO, having a chance to correct after your first question seemed like a kindness for all involved. Note that it'll usually only kick in if you try to ask a second question within a day of your first; after that, you're more likely to just get a warning. – Shog9 Sep 6 '18 at 18:08

Adam Lear fixed this a few days ago. Thanks for the report!

    The last line uses the plural "days" too: "We'll see you in 1 days" – user392547 Oct 13 '18 at 5:56
