Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

What can I do when getting “Sorry, we are no longer accepting questions/answers from this account”?

The first question I answered was moved to meta from SO, causing my reputation to go from 36 to 1.

I believe that this caused my ability to answer questions on SO to be removed.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
It shouldn't have done. However, if you have other down-voted answers that were deleted you might be answer blocked - meta.stackexchange.com/questions/86997/… – ChrisF Aug 3 '12 at 20:44
    
Well, too bad your only upvoted answer was posted on an off topic question. – Shadow Wizard Oct 10 '12 at 13:21

That was the only upvoted answer you had. You have a handful of others (4 out of your 5 answers) that were downvoted and/or deleted, which contributes a lot more to the answer ban.

See What can I do when getting “Sorry, we are no longer accepting questions/answers from this account”? for details on what to do next.
