Can non-professional administrators still ask questions about professional setups?

Can non-professional administrators still ask questions about professional setups?

Even when this place was quite insistent on the professional requirement, to me that always related to the standard/level of the question, not the resume of the asker. A bad question is bad no matter ...

Can non-professional administrators still ask questions about professional setups?

IMO, you don't need to be a professional sysadmin to ask a question here, you just need to be able to play one on the Internet. A lot of questioners can't manage to play Homo Sapiens on the Internet, ...

"You can only post once every 40 minutes." Why do I get this error?

Why have my questions not been well-received (danger of being blocked)?

It's good that you've asked here rather than ignoring the warning. It's an automatic system, based on the "results" of your questions - how many upvotes and downvotes they've gotten, how many have ...

limit in question

Generally speaking, you'll have to wait six months (since your last question). You've been warned before that your questions were (on average, including deleted questions) poorly received, and if ...

Does this question fit ServerFault more than SuperUser?

I think SU is a good place for this. It wouldn't necessarily be off-topic here, but this has an end-user vibe about it, not a system administration one (remember, SF is for professional system ...

Lots of OpenEBS questions from new users

You are definitely on to something. If you search for "OpenEBS", you will find only a dozen and half or so questions, but almost all of them from new users opening a "new" account in the last 8-10 ...

How long should it take to write an SF question?

You may not ask many questions, but you write a lot of answers. I would expect that you can write a question that is well received with a similar amount of effort as compared to what a good answer ...
