You're lucky today. Some users upvoted a few of your better questions, and that was sufficient to lift the ban. For the time being, at least. But you are certainly still close to the ban-threshold, so asking a badly received question will probably reinstate the question ban. On the other hand, asking a well-received question will move you further away from ...

You're not; your account triggered a warning for a ban that is no longer in effect (it has been superseded by rolling rate limits) - the ban itself was turned off but not the warning. There's another ban and another warning to go with it that are still in play, but you're far from qualifying for either. We're discussing how to best disable the obsolete ...

It seems that you were automatically banned from asking. If you are indeed receiving the message that Martin mentions in the comments, you should read here for more information. Some points worthy of highlighting: Moderators cannot lift the ban. "[A]ll questions should be objective, answerable, and on-topic, (...) all answers should be genuine ...

You cannot ask questions on Mathematics Stack Exchange because you are currently question banned. This ban is automatic and kicks in when some algorithm decides that your question contributions are of poor quality, and are not of positive value to the community. In contrast, you are not question banned on MathOverflow. Though both sites are part of the ...

Do not create a new account. If caught, the new account will be deleted, and the old one will be suspended. We do not take it lightly when people try to circumvent the automatic limitations of the software by creating more accounts. Moreover, one trend that you notice almost right away after becoming a moderator, is that the people who do create more ...

The trigger for the warning is pretty straightforward; it looks at your recent posts and tries to guess whether or not if the question you're about to write will do well on the site. If your last post was poorly-received, it will warn you. If a significant % of your previous posts were poorly-received, it will warn you. At a certain reputation level, the ...

In general, yes. Question-bans and answer-bans are almost independent (good answers can help to some extent to lift or avoid a question-ban and vice versa, but the greatest role is played by the posts of the affected type). But if your answers are also poorly received, you can also be answer-banned. However, question-bans and answer-bans are nowadays not ...

I cannot see the question you gave in the first link so my answer will be based on the second. What you have posted is a question. Just a question. What you haven't done is show your attempts. We don't know whether you've tried anything. This is not a 'do-my-homework-for-me' site. Please read How to ask a good question? and hopefully you will understand ...

Inactivity does not matter. Question bans are automatically performed by the system. You can find out much more through a cursory search on meta. Or you can read this explanatory post. In your case, I see that you have asked a total of 11 questions. Of these, 4 are closed and 3 have been deleted. Six are downvoted, 1 is at 0 score, and 4 are upvoted. On ...

This is an automated block. Moderators cannot change or remove this block. The best resource to read concerning the block is the primary What can I do when getting "We are no longer accepting questions from this account" post. This will describe the actions available to you as well. A good start would be to make sure that all posts you give from now on are ...

We don't want users to delete their question after they have received an answer. This is because that deprives the answerer the chance to get the reputation bonus they deserve for their work. Somebody considered the question worth answering, and after that point the community should decide whether the question is worth keeping. This applies equally to the ...

There are two things to keep apart: There are automatic questions bans that are based on the quality, or rather the reception, of the questions. If all, or at least most, of your questions are well-received you will not run into this. Here, well-received mostly means not negatively received. It's not necessary to have a great score. Not having a negative ...

Mods don't have full access to the internal workings of the autoban system but I think this is because your first question was so heavily downvoted that your current aggregate question score is still negative. I can't undo the ban but I threw another upvote in there for you. If you keep asking good questions and they continue to be well-received, this won't ...

We don't know. The moderators can see that you are currently banned from asking questions, but the system does not tell us for how long, except in short-term cases. Note that in addition to your current positive track record, you are still lugging around your older record of deleted questions which includes several questions, all with a low score, and most ...

You should have received a message directing you to the page Why are questions no longer being accepted from my account?. According to it, the way to get out of question ban is to edit the posts that got you there. If some of those are now deleted, bring them into shape before undeleting. When the system sees that the negative voting trend on those posts it ...

First, read everything in the following page. What can I do when getting "We are no longer accepting questions/answers from this account"? This will tell you what you can do to try to get out of a question ban. Note in particular that this is an automated system, and moderators do not create or remove this ban. Since you've asked, you might ...

Yes, given too many poorly received prior answers, it is possible to get (automatically and for some time) banned from answering questions. This affects only the ability to answer; the account will not be suspended. This is the case on all sites. Yet, it is determined on a per-site basis; a ban on one site does not result in a ban throughout the network.

It's great that you apparently took the time to read the advice on asking good questions and learned from it. Thus your latest question now has a score of 6, which should contribute to diminishing if not completely stopping further rate-limiting. First of all I want to know, what is the basis on which the number of days of being restricted is chosen? The ...

The details of the situation are explained in this post: What can I do when getting "We are no longer accepting questions/answers from this account"? I will quote some parts (note the passage at the end) Automatic bans never expire or "time out." This means that you cannot simply wait for a certain amount of time. If you do not take ...

Your account is blocked from asking questions because you have a history of asking questions which are heavily downvoted and then closed and deleted. The system has already messaged you with a link to the help center, but here it is again. If you are confused about why your questions were so poorly received, consider reading one of the many closure messages ...

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 ...

According to the Help Centre, you should start by improving your existing questions. This means that you should try to make your questions as clear and specific as possible. However, if you are unable to improve your existing questions, you are given a chance to ask a new one about half a year later, before you are banned again from asking questions. However,...

Yes, you can still ask questions, but you have to be careful.....if your next few questions are not well-received, you will be placed on a posting ban and you won't get to post questions for 6 months (as far as I know). If your next post after the 6 month ban isn't well received either, your ban will be reinstated. Trust me, I've had that warning over on ...
