About 2 years ago, I wrote some VERY bad questions which obviously got down voted and one question just got closed off because it was irrelevant or because the question was not clear.

Recently, I wanted to have the privilege to be able to ask questions again. I decided to contribute positively to the community by answering questions where I can and I have been a bit successful. I managed to double my reputation points.

Now what I don't understand is, I want to be able to improve the questions I asked two years back but those questions are relevant to me anymore nor do I remember the problems not I have the code. I just don't know what to do about this. I know I cannot delete them, because it will make it worse.

Can someone please, tell me what I can do about these questions?

I hope I don't downvoted and I am aware there are probably duplicate questions. I just want some help.

MY question is unique because it mentions I am trying to improve my existing posts but they are irrelevant and I dont remember the problems nor do I ahve the code anymore.

  • on a related note, did you consider deleting account and restarting at a rate of one question a week as explained here? (duplicate target also mentions this but only as one of many other options) – gnat Oct 5 '16 at 16:53
  • That answer is for someone have LIMIITED questions @gnat – freddy Oct 5 '16 at 16:58
  • per my reading it is about banned users: "you had an account that was blocked from asking questions, and returned after requesting deletion of your account, which we obliged..." – gnat Oct 5 '16 at 17:00

I can ask questions again.

Well, surprisingly editing my old questions did help. For future reference, I made sure I improved the body of the question and gave it a proper title. I think its the minor things that help

Also answered so many questions with as much as detail as I can.

I still have a limit. I am going to make sure, I ask questions with much detail as I can.
