When I try to ask a question, my Mathematics Stack Exchange account says that I have reached my question limit and should fix my previous posts. But I don't have clue how should I fix my previous posts. I also want to know whether answering questions can lift my question ban or not. Please help me lift this ban because I have to clarify many queries on the site since this is the only place where I get answers to many of my problems . Thanks in advance.

    $\begingroup$ I have read it and I am not asking anyone to lift my ban. I am asking how should I lift this ban. $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 10, 2015 at 10:41

    $\begingroup$ You should try and edit one of your three deleted questions or this negatively scoring question. It is a bit difficult to give precise pieces of advice. The exact details of the formula that decides whether you have a question ban are kept secret. Read this answer for more information. It seems to be that by giving well received answers you can also help your cause. $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 10, 2015 at 11:01

This happens when several of your questions are not well-received by the community.

Some things to consider for your next questions:

  • Don't ask a question and answer it later that day. Self-answering is good, but don't ask a question too fast, without researching yourself thoroughly well enough.

  • Do not delete any of your questions. Deleted questions still count for the ban and if there were any answers, they will even count harder against you.

    $\begingroup$ I wonder whether you noticed that you've answered a question that was asked five years ago. $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 28, 2020 at 11:05

    $\begingroup$ @GerryMyerson I saw that it was unanswered, and I like to give back the community even if it doesn't get accepted $\endgroup$
