# I have been banned from asking questions, what should I do?

Almost 2 week ago I asked a question, which first put on hold but after I had edited, it re-opened. Since then I have been banned from asking question. According to help centre, in order to ban to be lifted, my positive contribution to the website must be higher than the negative ones, but here is the catch, I'm just a freshmen physics students, who have passed English *proficiency exam 2 month ago and taking his first Calculus course in the summer term. Most of you don't know but, there was a discussion about that question and by asking this question, I have literally learned how to ask a question in math SE, but I am banned, and I have lots of questions to ask. I'm trying to answer to some calculus questions, but some of them about a topic I don't know and the others is answered before me. So what do you think I should do in order to ban to be lifted ?

*I'm at a English-medium University in a Turkish spoken country, so in order to start your own department, you have to pass English proficiency exam.

Edit:Thank you so much guys, both for answers and the up votes.

• Is it the rate-limiting ("ask again in $n$ days"), or is it the almost-permanent ban ("Sorry, we're no longer accepting questions from this account")? – Daniel Fischer Aug 7 '16 at 16:21

• Yuck. A bit harsh, I think, all things considered. Although, you've been shown a quality ban warning before posting three times, and the four questions before the last one were all closed, two of them deleted, and three of them downvoted. Nevertheless, with the last question reopened and upvoted, it's at the very least extremely unfortunate timing. But the situation is what it is. So what can you do? a) Edit your zero-score or downvoted questions so that they will receive upvotes. Caution: if the edit isn't really good, the bumping can lead to further downvotes, – Daniel Fischer Aug 7 '16 at 17:33
• Sometimes you just have the bad luck that the first person who sees your question downvotes it. – Mr. Brooks Aug 8 '16 at 21:30
• My ban was lifted after I reached rep 1000 but I keep getting downvotes so I'm not sure what happens after the next ban! – user334732 Aug 17 '16 at 7:26
• Could a person endowed with reason explain why this post got 42 upvotes, and the accepted answer 55 upvotes? It seems that Darwin's ideas should be slightly modified: humans don't descend from primates, but rather from sheep! – Alex M. Aug 20 '16 at 11:08
• You can receive the 'popular question' badge and still be question-banned. Go figure. – EulerSpoiler Mar 2 at 15:04
