Rollover questions? $5 per question? Pony?

God help me, but I'm starting a thread on getting additional AskMe questions. There are weeks that go by with no need to ask anything ... but then there are times when a second question would be a life-saver. Whatabout either (a) "rollover questions," a la Cingular's rollover minutes, say, up to a maximum of 2-3 in the bank at any time; or (b) a fee to ask a second question in one week? I can think of several times when I would have ponied up an additional $5 to ask, say, a work-related question where I knew AskMe's community would have the best answer.

AskMe posting limits?

Ok, so now that February is over, what happens to the AskMe posting limits?

I want my askme back!

Revisiting the two-week Ask limit: I still see questions scrolling off the front page daily. Has volume decreased any, or is this arbitrary limit still there just to be frustrating?

Limits on posts for Askme, mefi

This has to have been covered before, but why one question per subscriber per week on AskMeFi, but no discernable limit (or is there) on postings to MetaFilter?

Referrals to previous threads on this subject welcomed. I did a quick search and didn't come up with anything obvious.

Post to AskMefi on my behalf?

Post to AskMefi on my behalf? I just asked a non-urgent question about tipping, but I should have asked a question about oil heat. I'm scheduled to sign a lease tomorrow, and I would really like some answers about heat before I take responsibility for buying a season's worth of oil. I'm brand new to MeFi and slipped up with the 1/week restriction; next time I'll make sure to post my urgent question first. Thanks to anyone willing to help. (My email is in my profile)

Sometimes I need more then one question a week

Sometimes I need more then one question a week...

I'm thinking a feature would be nice where you could ask "4 questions a month" in stead of once a week.. or have unused questions (say you odnt ask a question on MeFi for a month) that would be "banked"?

alternately, I was thinking of "donate a question" or "extra questions dispensed" based on being selected as best answer?

How can I post a question on AskMeFi using the anonymous account?

How can I post a question on AskMeFi using the anonymous account ? When I login using my username and try to post a question, I see a link to post the question anonymously but if I have already posted in the past 1 week, then this link does not appear.

Shorten AskMe Wait

Why is it that I can criticize Metafilter policy or features on a daily basis but I have to wait a week for help with things that are actually important? I say shorten the wait for Ask Metafilter to one or two days, because advice is a much-needed thing.

Posting limits?

so, are there differences between the posting limits (once per week) on ask.mefi and metafilter proper? In other words, once you've posted anywhere on the Mefi network, do you have to wait a week to post elsewhere, or is the posting limit unique to each area?

Also, it would be cool if "best answers" were tallied for each user, and posting frequency tied to it somehow. Or not. Please don't hurt me.

Once per seven days or once per calendar week?

Once per week questions: Once per seven days or once per calendar week? Did I miss something on the first post page that said if I post, I can't post again for the next 7 days? (I'm normally attentive, but the first I noticed about this was just trying to post and being denied). Is once per week really appropriate on AskMe? Questions tend to bunch up, but then there are long quiet periods - how about no more than 4 times per month instead?

Posting limits reallocation?

Instead of one AskMe/MetaTalk thread a week, can we get four a month?
