I used to enjoy using math SE to get help with questions I was struggling with.

I'm no advanced mathematician and hence I can't really contribute lots of answers to the site. I must have added a few bad questions and now all I get is that I've reached my question limit.

I have a much better understanding of SE nowadays and used to abuse it somewhat. However, now I feel like I would be trusted to have question privileges restored.

Is there anything I can do?

    $\begingroup$ You might have a look at the links in the post-ban tag-info and other questions tagged (post-ban), if this is what you mean. $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Aug 29 '17 at 1:19

    $\begingroup$ In many ways it is more of an accomplishment to come up with good questions in math, than to come up with good answers. Careful preparation and improvement of one's Questions is a solid contribution to Math.SE. $\endgroup$ – hardmath Aug 29 '17 at 4:27

    $\begingroup$ Study the Help Center. What it says about Asking and in particular question bans. Note the pieces of advice: Stack Exchange cannot lift question bans by request, The only way to end a posting block is to positively contribute to the site and Begin by fixing your existing posts $\endgroup$ – Jyrki Lahtonen Aug 29 '17 at 6:31

    $\begingroup$ Start with viewing which questions of yours are closed and/or downvoted and improving them. $\endgroup$ – Simply Beautiful Art Aug 29 '17 at 13:57
  • $\begingroup$ @SimplyBeautifulArt yep cheers I'm doing that at the moment but I'm not seeing any results. Hopefully people will remove downvotes or upvotes will come in. $\endgroup$ – Charlie Aug 29 '17 at 14:16

    $\begingroup$ Best of luck with that work! $\endgroup$ – Jyrki Lahtonen Aug 29 '17 at 15:14
  • $\begingroup$ @JyrkiLahtonen thanks. Don't know what exactly I can do to fix it though $\endgroup$ – Charlie Aug 29 '17 at 15:31

    $\begingroup$ Just a note, if you are able again to post, make sure that your first posts are really good. If your first post(s) are bad again, the ban will be re-applied and it will be harder to get out of it that time. $\endgroup$ – wythagoras Aug 30 '17 at 19:50
  • $\begingroup$ @wythagoras definitely will do $\endgroup$ – Charlie Aug 31 '17 at 11:25
  • $\begingroup$ I think that this chatroom might possibly be a reasonable place where to ask how to improve a specific post. $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Aug 31 '17 at 13:22
