I got the following warning:

Wait! Some of your past questions have not been well-received, and you're in danger of being blocked from asking any more.

For help formulating a clear, useful question, see: How do I ask a good question?

Also, edit your previous questions to improve formatting and clarity.

I know I have asked some stupid questions.

My question is: my current reputation is 60. If my reputation increases to 300, will this warning disappear?

  • Only if you ask better, well-received questions.

  • @Oded my question is whether stackoverflow has the mechanism to cancel this warning, or i will see this warning forever Nov 6, 2014 at 14:57
  • 4
    If you start asking better, well-received questions, you will stop getting the warning. Nothing to do with reputation.

  • you mean system consider my new question, right? please tell me whether "better question" == "more up-vote question" Nov 6, 2014 at 15:03
  • Well - yes. If the community votes a question up, it is considered a better question than one that didn't get any votes or has a negative score. Note that we do have voting fraud detection - if someone is caught trying to artificially get votes on their posts, they can get suspended.

The warning is not reputation-dependent.

Of the questions you've asked, you've had some recent very well-received questions (e.g., this one), as well as some not-so-well-received questions (e.g., this one). If you keep asking good questions such as the former, the message will disappear.
