Where is a good place to find writing prompts?

This post was made to a protected question that mentions that only users with 10+ rep can answer and yet, that new user was able to answer it?

I understand that the user has 10+ on another SE site, but isn't the protection for SE Writers only?

I assumed it was something I should flag here...

I have nothing against the post though, just was surprised by it being posted on that protected thread.

  • The answer and the protection both appeared yesterday (timestamps not yet showing). Perhaps they appeared in that order? Commented Apr 23, 2013 at 19:39
  • @MonicaCellio Hmm, I didn't notice that protections have a timestamp. You're right, that could be it.

1 Answer 1


The answer was posted before Neil Fein put the protection up. Hence how a 1-rep user was able to answer.
