I know y'all are going to downvote this post just like that guy 2 posts below this one... idc because this is meta, but... just whatever.

I've been asking lots of questions in the past, and I.. I don't know. I think they're OK, but I keep getting 3 downvotes on all of 'em. Yes, 3. Anyway, I just wanna know WHY? I mean, it's not like I'm asking bogus questions or my grammar sucks. And apparently, I got like thousands of views for a dumb question like Double blue lines in Word. Yes, that's how I got 63 rep. So what's going on here? Am I just like really bad or what?

  • superuser.com/questions/1187755/… One Bad bros vague question with 3 downvotes? – Ramhound Mar 12 '17 at 0:30
  • There are others @Ramhound – Daneolog Mar 12 '17 at 0:32
  • I deleted them, so my reputation won't down. – Daneolog Mar 12 '17 at 0:32
  • And what do you mean vague? I seriously don't see why that's vague. – Daneolog Mar 12 '17 at 0:33
  • All of them? You have 6 questions on SU. Only one of them has any downvotes. And that one is a bad question. It is just a complaint with no information at all that will help anybody to resolve your issue. – DavidPostill Mar 12 '17 at 0:33
  • @Daneolog Deleted questions still count your ability to ask new questions. The one question that has downvotes is a bad question, it's not answerable, in its current form – Ramhound Mar 12 '17 at 0:33

    @Daneolog Deleting your "bad" questions won't stop you from being question banned. And if you delete them we cannot advise you on how to improve them. – DavidPostill Mar 12 '17 at 0:35
  • @DavidPostill What kind of information do I have to put? I already put all I know (the KBps information on LoL)! – Daneolog Mar 12 '17 at 0:35
  • Well OK. I'm talking about this question that you're talking about. – Daneolog Mar 12 '17 at 0:35
  • And I have another question. Why was THIS question downvoted? Hmm? Too vague? Not enough information? Cannot ask about problems? What? – Daneolog Mar 12 '17 at 0:36
  • @DavidPostill and by the way, I do want to keep reputation. Would I rather both lose reputation AND get question banned or only get question banned? – Daneolog Mar 12 '17 at 0:38
  • That's why I kept this question on. So I can ask you guys. – Daneolog Mar 12 '17 at 0:39

    "it's not like I'm asking bogus questions or my grammar sucks" Your grammar in this question "sucks". 1/ Use of slang words 2/ Use of text speak. 3/ ... – DavidPostill Mar 12 '17 at 0:40
  • Slang words? Like conjunctions? – Daneolog Mar 12 '17 at 0:41
  • Every SINGLE question about BootCamp that I have asked in the past... 2 weeks have been downvoted at least 3 times before I deleted them. If I didn't delete any of them I'd probably be at around 30. So yeah, I suppose I'm a bit ticked off. – Daneolog Mar 12 '17 at 0:43

I took a look at the downvoted questions and well, I can't blame Tim Post's keys this time.

This one is unclear about what you're asking. How does one "download a partition" and download speeds may be dependant on the other side too.

This one is a bit of a mess too. Asking questions as a stream of consciousness does that. I suppose it is also semi-trivial to test.

This one is too broad - especially when we don't know how the VM is set up or what you're doing with it.

This one... lacks any information that's useful in solving your problem.

This one is like asking how long a piece of string is - it depends on partion size, the tool used, the drive speed, plausibly the phase of the moon...

While the question you asked is "why?" the answer you need is "what do I do"

We have a template for mod messaging folks for poor quality questions - I'm reproducing it in part here for your benefit

Specifically, many of your questions were downvoted and closed because they seemed to be hastily written, or of the type that we'd prefer users refrain from asking. This is a troubling pattern; we'd like to make sure that you've read the help that we have available for asking questions. Please take some time to read all of the information linked below prior to asking another question:

Less text speak, and more time formulating your questions would be nice. Ask yourself "If someone called me up and offered me money if I fixed their computer, what would I ask them?" and include these things in your question.

So, yeah, that's why you got downvoted.
