Have you ever asked a question on Lifehacks and got an error saying you have to wait 40 minutes to ask another question? Why is this happening and can it be bypassed?

This limitation is one intended to keep new users from spamming with low-quality questions or genuine spam. Best is to live with it until you have enough rep it no longer applies -- bypassing it may risk moderation, which could include further restricting your ability to ask questions, among other things.


Nevermind all I had to do was switch my internet connection from WiFi to mobile data. And yeah that let me bypass the 40 minute timer.
