Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 149 Stack Exchange communities.

So I was curious if Stack Overflow offers a second chance button. I know a lot of user who get this"Sorry, we are no longer accepting questions from this account.". Is there a way to give good users a second chance.

Did you read the given link where you can find how to get a second chance? –  hims056 Nov 30 '12 at 4:58
I did read that but I think there should be a physical "Second Chance" Button…. –  Programmer... Nov 30 '12 at 5:00
But why? You get second chance if you follow the given instruction. –  hims056 Nov 30 '12 at 5:02
I did that and been waiting for some time to get a second chance :) –  Programmer... Nov 30 '12 at 5:02
I think there should be a physical button for moderators attention. –  Programmer... Nov 30 '12 at 5:03
Improve your existing posts, answer some questions helpfully, gain some up votes and voilà - you no longer need a second chance. We're not going out on a limb with trust based on your ability to quickly click a button, which is what got you into the ban in the first place. –  Tim Post Nov 30 '12 at 5:03
What is your definition of 'good'? The algorithm that stops people from asking questions is in the business of detecting 'bad'. –  Rosinante Nov 30 '12 at 15:56
Who gets to click the second chance button? –  Asad Mar 24 '13 at 20:34

You've already gotten many of your posts closed/deleted/downvoted. I think that's enough chances. Read the link, follow the instructions, and your qban will be lifted -- there's your second chance.
