Apparently I have a question ban on superuser.com. This help page says that I should improve my existing questions in order to get out of the question ban.

Which of my questions have a chance of getting more upvotes by getting improved?

None of my questions have a score below zero. And I can't see my old deleted questions.

1 Answer 1


None of my questions have a score below zero. And I can't see my old deleted questions.

You have asked 30 questions (15 are deleted).

Of those 15, 5 have a -ve score and count towards your question ban:

So that's 8 down votes. Unfortunately I don't see any way to improve those deleted questions.

To balance that you have 10 up votes on non-deleted questions.

    @root - Having multiple questions that have received zero upvotes isn't a good thing. I manually counted, and discovered you have 6 questions that have 0 votes, this doesn't count the 15 questions that were deleted. By removing the questions you removed, you created a situation, where it will be next to impossible to get out of a question ban. It should be pointed out that you were warned you were approaching the question ban threshold, you were warned, when you submitted your last question. I found at least one example of a question you asked, it was closed, then you simply asked it again.

  • @Ramhound Why was deleting bad? If I hadn't deleted them, they would have on average collected even more downvotes, which is worse, isn't it?

  • @Ramhound Regarding asking closed questions again: The message above a closed question says: "Your post has been associated with similar questions. If these questions don’t resolve your question, ask a new one."
