I've deleted two questions, so I've got a question ban.

But I've got only one other question, the people are absolutly not interesting in(Improve FloatBuffers' Performance with Native C/C++),although the question is well asked, so I can change It 1000 times and it won't change anything.

But, how to release the ban Now and what about people which have got only deleted Questions?


I've earned good reputation for my question, so I was able release the ban.

Hmm, looks like a moderator has recently disagreed with you about that particular question being "well asked"... – Cody Gray Mar 13 '12 at 4:56

Answer some questions to earn some reputation points. Eventually, this should raise you above the ban threshold, and you will be able to ask questions again.

Good advice, but it catches my eye he says he only has two deleted questions. That really shouldn't put him into ban territory, considering that the other active question has only received one downvote, should it? Are the bans that sensitive? – Cody Gray Mar 13 '12 at 4:57
@Cody: While the OP has only two deleted questions, it is 66% of his attempts, and the third question is now closed. The bans are carefully calibrated to statistical data collected from preexisting posts; that data shows that the odds of a new user being a good Stackizen after a user's first two questions have been closed drop dramatically. – Robert Harvey Mar 13 '12 at 15:06
@Cody: Also note that the OP is not restricted in any other way from using the site, except for asking questions. – Robert Harvey Mar 13 '12 at 15:08
Right, I knew that the bans were specific. I just didn't know they took effect when the statistical sample size was so limited. – Cody Gray Mar 14 '12 at 4:35
So it's all about reputation? I mean, user with high reputation can't get the question ban even if he got all his reputation from suggesting edits, for example? I would expect the algorithm to just count votes - up vs. down. – Shadow Wizard Mar 15 '12 at 11:18
@ShaDowWizArd: While I know how the Team came up with the algorithm, I don't know the exact details of the implementation, so I'm not qualified to comment on that. – Robert Harvey Mar 15 '12 at 14:49
