What can I do when getting “It does not meet our quality standards”?

I'm prevented from asking the below question on Stack Overflow, but I think it is a well formed question.

Stack Overflow gives me the this error message:

It does not meet our quality standards.

Could it be that the Stack Overflow quality-check needs to be revised?

This is the question I'm trying to ask:

I need a regular expression for php preg_match() function that match an string like below

monitor22122

the first part "monitor" is a fixed string but the second part "22122" is a number between 11111 to 99999 can some one give me a good sample for this regex. i found many samples on below website but not help.

"i" should become "I". –  Shadow Wizard Feb 28 '12 at 12:03

Capitals, punctuation are missing. (You're also missing the part where you're supposed to show what you have tried.) –  Mat Feb 28 '12 at 12:05

i think a better way for helping "StackOverflow" is helping me to learn how to ask a question like this and not defending StackOverflow –  user986166 Feb 28 '12 at 12:20

Well, actually, keeping such questions out of the system is helping Stack Overflow and the community. You did read the FAQ? You did read the provided link? –  Time Traveling Bobby Feb 28 '12 at 12:23
    
@Bobby yes i read faq but it is completely in general and not helping a user without stackoverflow experience, also which part of my main question is bad? –  user986166 Feb 28 '12 at 12:26
    
The whole question...it can be easily answered with one look into any of the many regular expression documentations. –  Time Traveling Bobby Feb 28 '12 at 12:29

No, this is not a well formed question.

First of, capitalize I, when you're talking about yourself, and use the correct punctuation.
Second, you should show some effort; you should show what you have tried, in order to solve your problem. This is called "give me teh codez" question.
Third, I feel that your question is translated by Google (I am sorry if I'm wrong). In most of the cases, it is wrong.

*By the way, there's no "monitor" in your string above, which you're describing as its fixed part.
*By the way, there's no regex() in PHP.

I'd post it as:

I need a regular expression which would be able to match string below

service55555

The first part "service" is a fixed string but the following numbers can be within range 1 - 9 (so 22222 is a valid match).

I have tried to ...., which also failed.

But in this case, I see there's no effort and you should look around a bit more before asking. That's for the next time.

i reedit that question but my problem exist –  user986166 Feb 28 '12 at 12:09
    
@user986166: Are you serious that you asked such a poor question after asking for an advice ? –  Martin. Feb 28 '12 at 13:03
    
Oh, yeah, before I forget...please do no encourage such questions by posting (C&P ready) examples on how to circumvent that filter. There's a reason that question accumulated 9 downvotes on SO within 9 minutes. –  Time Traveling Bobby Feb 28 '12 at 13:05
    
@Bobby: I saw that. That question has nothing to do with my advices here –  Martin. Feb 28 '12 at 13:07
    
I saw that you saw that...I meant that it's better not to encourage such questions in such ways. –  Time Traveling Bobby Feb 28 '12 at 13:10

@Bobby: yeah, I know it already. It's sad. –  Martin. Feb 28 '12 at 13:11
