One of the things that we occasionally see on P.SE (and more often at the start of a new college semester) is new users posting their homework. With single posts, we are often able to comment and close before the user goes too far down the "this isn't what the site is about."
However, it isn't rare (or at least as I perceive it) for these homework problems to be in rapid succession from the same user.
So, the stats I'm wondering about:
For users with less than 125 reputation at the time of posting the questions (the rate limit threshold), who post their first two questions within 90 minutes of each other:
- What is the eventual outcome of these posts?
- What percentage of the users end up question banned? or severely rate limited?
- Just curious: how many of them read the tour page (getting the informed badge) before posting a question?
- How does this compare to users with less than 125 reputation who post their first two questions separated by a day or more?
The driving force on this is that these posts take up much more community moderation time (another set of close votes, additional comments explaining) and end up being a poor experience for the new user on the site. Getting an idea of how often this happens would aide in letting us create better proposals for how to address this and maybe help raise the awareness of the new user experience on the site at various levels.
