Why is there a limit to how many questions we ask and answer each day?

I mean a limit for asking questions is okay, but why answering? There's no harm in helping someone with their problems, unless it's something to do with the points..?

    This Answers page has an FAQ link that explains why.

    I also recommend you read he Community Guidelines and the Points and Levels.

  • That's just how the rules are. Once you reach your limit than that's it. But you can keep coming back on another day and answer more questions to raise your points so you can get closer to the next level. Then there you can answer more questions and so forth.

    It's just the rules and we all have to follow them if we like it or not.

    It depends on the level ..

    when you started to go for level 5 , there will be no answering and asking limit .

    The actuarians who study the answers and gather statistics, don't want the data to be unfairly weighted by a few prolific contributors.

    The answer team is directly responsible to all the yahoo's. One mistake and their global syndicate could apply the wrong spin to events.

    As a lv 1, youy have to prove yourself.

    If you push yourself to the max everyday in answers (20) and voting (1o) and refrain from asking questions (-5), you could level up in a week

    Answer more questions than you ask, that will gain you points, as your level increases, so do the number of questions. After a while you get unlimited.

    I accept as true with you thoroughly. after I first joined i did not understand I had a decrease and someone requested a serious question about taking a particular drugs even as breastfeeding (which I researched it and it became an truly dangerous concern to do) and thanks to the decrease i could not answer and tell her to provide up and others were telling her it became high-quality. So it did in reality stay away from me from sharing valuable understand-how. i do not imagine that the obstacles are needed in any respect.

    Yeah, I think it's the points. The lower the level, the less points you're allowed to earn in a day.
