Today, I went to ask a question on UX and received the following warning:

Visual Aid of Problem

Why am I getting this warning?

My questions have been well received and I've deleted none of my questions on UX. I have never answered any questions on UX. I've provided a screenshot of my questions on UX:

Second Visual Aid https://ux.stackexchange.com/users/81176/code-play

Is it triggering this message because my last question was a duplicate? The question was still well received. Is this an error with UX?

    I had a similar experience on superuser. Not a single downvote, still got the warning. Very frustrating when they do not tell you what you should improve or where you failed.

Your last two questions (1, 2) were closed; this is what triggered the warning.

The threshold for this warning was based on an old, now-defunct system for question-bans. Given the warning no longer corresponds to anything you should be warned about, I've adjusted the parameters to eliminate it outside of extreme scenarios.

  • Would you please clarify which two questions? I've never had any question closed or deleted. Your link goes to the question that was marked as a duplicate. Does a duplicate count as a question being closed? Doesn't the question still count as being well received, even if it is marked as a duplicate?

    @CodePlay: there are two links in Shog's answer, the second points to a question closed as "primarily opinion-based".
