I was banned at Stack Overflow from asking questions in November 2012. After some time that ban was lifted. After that I was more conscious while asking questions. I asked 4 questions after that. No upvotes but 2 down votes for a post. I knew very well they are well formed and they aren't off-topic.
See the below four questions
- Phonegap - SAP BSP Application - fails to load with Login pop-up
- MongoConnectionException - Failed to connect to: localhost:27017
- How to return JSON data from php MongoCursor
- What can be done with Mongo Aggregation / Performance of Mongo Aggregation
They are really new technologies. I didn't get valid or useful answers from Stack Overflow. But I found solutions from other forums, where employees are answering. I put those answers in my Stack Overflow posts for others.
It should take some time for others to sense it's usage. Because they are new technologies and they are not used by many like HTML, Jquery. So the attention for those posts is lower and the probability for getting upvotes is also less.
Again I am banned by your system. I suspect the last four posts might be taken by your system. If so, is there any fault in my side?
Based on the information above I have the following feature requests:
Show the reason for ban.
Update: Instead of showing this link http://goo.gl/C1Kwu for ban. Show valid reason for ban.
Get compulsory comments for downvotes from users having less than 5000 points.
Update: increase 125 reputation to 5000 for down votes, if you fear about invalid comments
If possible try to rethink the banning algorithm with my above scenario.
