I asked a couple of really bad (horrible!) questions here and got hit with a question ban. No surprise there – I was a new user, and now know where I went wrong. The problem is that I can't get question privileges back. The bad questions were bad enough that I don't think I could've edited them to be better – it wasn't formatting or style – the questions themselves were just bad questions, so I deleted them.
The Help Center article said that my question privileges would automatically be reinstated once my "positive contributions" outweighed my negative ones. I realize that it's done automatically, but as an extremely new coder, I really can't do much in the way of positive contributions except upvotes (if that can even be considered a contribution). What should I do to lift the ban?
