I just tried to ask a question on this site for the first time ever. I got an answer that did not work and every time I tried to update the thread with my progress as I continued to search for a solution , and every update to the question got deleted. Then I was informed that answers were no longer being accepted from my account. How the hell is anyone supposed to work out a problem when they cannot post updates that include their progress?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
If you are posting updates then you should do that by editing the question. I'm guessing that you were adding answers (since there are only two edits to the question, neither of them made by you), which is why they were getting deleted: answers should really be answers, not updates.
Just click the 'edit' link underneath your question and you can update it.
