I have been banned from asking questions on StackOverflow, but do not understand why I have been receiving so many down votes.
When I ask questions on StackOverflow, I strive to make them easy to read by splitting them into sections. But, I do not have a great knowledge of programming and thus came here to learn and understand further. I usually research my questions before asking, and even though they might be trivial, they are important to me. If no one answers, I research further (occasionally for hours on end) to figure out my question, quickly posting the answer on StackOverflow.
I love to post answers on StackOverflow, but they occasionally contain misinformation. This is commented on, and I fix it promptly. Strangely, though, the down votes tend to come after the edit, with no additional help. This has happened to me here, here and here.
My questions have also been down voted recently. Some questions, like this one which were even starred by other users, but could not escape the wrath of a down vote.
How should I go about editing these questions and answers - even when I am confused about the flaw in them?
Some of my posts have gotten an upvote and a downvote - are these weighted equally, or because of the policy, is there no way to know?
I am worried that even if I edit my posts, fix misinformation, and think more before asking a question it won't be noticed. Is there any way to fast track my (hopeful) re-acceptance into this great community?
If anyone has the time, can they please point out some questions (or answers) of mine which are obviously of low quality, and point out the specific flaw? This would be extremely helpful and I will appreciate it immensely.
Where should I look before asking questions - even though I research, my questions are taken down quickly.
What online resources should I use to help myself learn and answer others questions. Simply saying "The Documentation" does not help. I am using Python 2.7.3
Having used StackOverflow for a month now, I have realized that several of my questions do not belong here, but would be a great fit on Super User with a few tweaks. They have been closed, but is there a way for me to migrate them, thus (hopefully) regaining my lost reputation here and contributing to that community? Here is the list of them:
Thank you so much for reading this long question. Over the weeks that I have used Stack Overflow I have grown close to it. I am not sure if this is the best way to argue my point, but I have actually begun to rely upon it. I am truly sad to have been outcast from this great community.
I have been banned again. Should I contact the Stack Overflow site moderators, or should I continue to improve my existing content? I don't believe that I have been down voted an incredible number of times, and am rather annoyed that this has occurred again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here is an example of a question that I have recently edited. While I wait for responses, I will continue to revise my previous pieces and post them in the comments. I think I have a talent for getting banned :)
