I tried to post two questions, on different topics, and got an error message saying You can only post once every 40 minutes. I assumed that this was because of my low reputation score, but I checked the privilege list and didn't see anything about being able to post more often. So:

Can one earn the right to post more frequently, and, if so, how?

  • Refer to opendata.meta.stackexchange.com/a/353. What I'm interested in knowing is: let's say I'm a 16k user on Android.se and 17k user on superuser. If I post a question on Superuser, can I post a question on Android.se within 40 minutes or would I have to wait? I'm sure, if I try on say bitcoin.se (with only association bonus) than I'd have to wait for 40 minutes. – Firelord Aug 14 '17 at 10:47
  • What defines a new user? I've been on SE sites for several years now. Moreover, I've never run into this issue on any other SE domain; only this one. – crmdgn Aug 14 '17 at 12:46

    "New user" means "has less than 125 reputation on the site where a question was posted". Meta.SE has a guide that outlines the current rate-limiting rules. – eldarerathis Aug 14 '17 at 14:34

Per The Complete Rate-Limiting Guide:

Users with < 125 rep, 40 minutes since their last question anywhere on the network (This applies to the user's IP address, not their account. If the user shares that IP with other users, they can be limited by the other user asking a question anywhere on the network.)
