Essentially, for several months now I seem to have the infamous quote atop the questions writing page that says if I don't pull my act together, I won't be able to ask questions, possibly permanently (depending on how I influence the community). I have read the help page and still cannot work out why, after all this time, I still have this warning.

I have

  • Gone over my old questions, and accepted answers where they work

  • Provided my own answers where I can

  • Voted where necessary

I have no questions with negative scores, and I fail to see why I still have the warning. Any help or detailed explanation please.

EDIT screenshot, just to provide evidence.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for enthusiasts and power users of the Android operating system.

  • To add, there are no moderator-visible statuses on the account -- as far as I can tell, this message should not be shown to Dan anymore. I suppose it could be the high proportion of zero-score posts. SE folks? – Matthew Read Aug 3 '16 at 22:46

    @MatthewRead I'm no expert in how your systems work, but wouldn't the 0 score be neutral? Neither one way or the other? – Dan B Aug 3 '16 at 23:37
  • I'm not an expert on SE's algorithm here either, just guessing. They might want more evidence of positive contributions, rather than ones that merely aren't negative. But again, just conjecture. – Matthew Read Aug 4 '16 at 14:43
  • Migrated since it seems like the reason behind this is probably not site-specific. – Matthew Read Aug 5 '16 at 15:05

    Are you accounting for deleted questions? Because the algorithm does. – ale Aug 5 '16 at 15:06
  • Based on the visible posts there are only a couple with downvotes: data.stackexchange.com/android/query/521348 – rene Aug 5 '16 at 15:21

    Ah, there are quite a few deleted ones with negative score. That could be it. – Matthew Read Aug 5 '16 at 17:08
  • @MatthewRead yeah, if you see some that could be salvageable you might hand the OP the links to those questions because they might not be able to find those from their profile. Before they undelete they should of course be edited into shape – rene Aug 5 '16 at 17:33
