I've just asked two consecutive questions. While I've tried to keep them succinct and as useful to other people as possible, it occurs to me that it may be bad form to ask too many questions in a short period. What is best practice here?
A good practice is to avoid flooding the front page. Besides that, time doesn't matter much - however if you put effort in writing a good question, and in investigating if it was already asked or not, the time period would probably not very short. Avoiding duplicates is an art which costs time, both the OP and potential answerers.
Being relatively new to the TeX.SX I have been impressed by the constructive and positive atmosphere. This reply is perhaps not directly a response to the first question but more of an extension to the discussion. I totally agree that any new question should have been preceded by some research on this site and others before being posed. Another aspect is that a site like this has a task to fulfill also for persons new to LaTeX and who may ask fairly simple questions but lack the background to understand what tags to search for. I have seen other forums go from being fairly open to extremely elitistic since the forum and the senior users content and knowledge, respectively, develop in tandem. This is really sad indeed. Anyway, this means I think the way questions should be viewed is quite complex and one must keep the greater good in view when looking at questions and judging them. I hope to be part of TeX.SX for a long time and see posts that teaches me new things and also being able to provide answers or comment questions wherever I might be able (so far perhaps not much!)
