I have just started studying calculus and sometimes have questions which are super easy for the most members of the site. I had a question and did not want to ask it because a similar one was already on the website. So I tried to ask my question in a comment under that similar question but I needed 50 reputations. If I could ask my question and ask for some clarification everything would be OK. But now there is only one way for me: to post it as a new question. But my questions get closed because they are repetitive or because of lack of clarity and details, despite my efforts to be as clear as possible. I get negative scores because of this and lose reputation. Even this very question has been asked before but I was not able to comment. It seems I'm stuck in a cycle.
