Why is there a limit on the number of answers to questions you can submit per day on Quora? I have many more answer requests waiting.
Good answers provide useful, evergreen information. I’ve spent up to about 8 hours on a single answer.It is not possible to write a lot of good answers of the type Quora desires in the same day.If someone reaches the answer limit they are providing brief answers.I’ve looked at your answers and you do seem to have the gift of brevity combined with usefulness. Most people do not. I see some ways additional information might have been helpful. For example, on one answer where you said to call a suicide hotline, a number, or better yet, numbers for many countries since Quora is worldwide, might have helped the person take that step.You also seem to be fairly new here. I believe people get a large limit or possibly no limit after they have the account in good standing for a while.A limit is one way to prevent a new person from coming in and writing a bunch of things that violate the rules before someone stops them. I didn’t read all your answers, I skimmed them, it looks like you are a valuable addition to the Quora community based on my brief scan of your posts.I have never run into the limit but I do not have your gift of brevity. I often wish I did. Perhaps if I had a bunch of answers in draft form and finished them up all in one day I might hit it, if it even applies to Top Writers. I suspect it does not apply but that’s just a guess.If I was running Quora I’d have an algorithm that figured it out. Brand new accounts would have lower limits. There’d be a formula that compared upvotes, downvote, and violations of policy that would determine a number of if there was even a limit. But I’m not running Quora and I do not have any inside knowledge—just guesses that come from a business risk management perspective.I don’t know if it will allow you to save drafts once you’ve reached your limit. If it does you could work on some and post them on a day when you don’t have time to answer a lot of questions.
Why has the number of requests for answers I am allowed on Quora been reduced from 25 to 22 daily per question?
It’s my bed time, and I’m tired, but you deserve an answer. Forgive me in advance for being a tad blunt. It’s just fatigue.Getting your answer request allowance reduced is a sign that you’re doing something wrong. Most likely you are writing questions that irritate a lot of people because they have flaws or seems spammy, and you’re getting lots of blocks.I looked at your questions, and just about every one has typos or grammatical errors. You need better editing. Try writing your questions in a text file, then only posting the best ones after you’ve had a night to sleep on them. This is very successful for me.The errors make the questions look low value, and people are reacting poorly to them in ways that are not visible to you. It’s not all about getting answers, you have to use care not to piss off the community with inferior content.Getting cut to 19 isn’t a tragedy. There are people who think they are God’s gift to Quora who have been cut to 12–14. At least you’re asking what you’re doing wrong. Some of the other partners just go on and on, oblivious to the harm they do.If you’re doing any of these things, stop now: putting too many topics on your questions, choosing the wrong topics, poorly curating the answers you get, always asking the same people, never asking people who never get picked, always writing in the same few narrow categories, writing cookie-cutter questions that are just slightly changed versions of your other questions… there are others, but that’s a start.Try what I suggest, don’t invent any new ways to screw up, and your allowance will go back up. If it doesn’t, something is still wrong in how you’re doing the job.Again, I’m sorry this isn’t in a super-friendly, kind tone, but I am due for bed, and don’t have time to polish it. I mean only the best! :)Thanks for the question.
