This question already has an answer here:
Often when I ask a question it gets closed, but I don't understand what makes it too broad or off-topic and people aren't explaining it in comments. I'm getting frustrated; I want to contribute constructively but I've run into this enough that I've hit an automatic block and don't know how to fix it.
I've reached out several times to the people who closed my questions, and they all just re-directed me to the standard Stack Exchange help talking about how to write a good question. And it may be just me but after reading through it several times I think I'm already doing what it recommends.
Despite the times my posts have been flagged I had many posts that did well, got useful feedback, and got at least 40 upvotes. Yet I have been question banned on Stack Overflow because of low-quality questions that "don't help the community". They provided a link to another Stack Exchange page showing what I can do to fix this, but it sounds like it will be a very long time before the ban will be lifted.
It appears obvious to me that this site isn't a bunch of bad people trying to be mean or trolling. I've found some really nice people here on Stack Exchange. But I'm having trouble understanding this ban I'm now under. Now I'm not innocent; I have quickly run through and posted a question about the bash terminal in the Ubuntu community when the question wasn't strictly Ubuntu. But it seems like people are being harsh for no apparent reason.
I don't know, maybe I'm just not good at gathering information from the stack exchange tips, or maybe it is them, I don't know. But since the flaggers didn't help me, I would like to ask here in public before I can no longer ask questions here either. Am I missing something? Are there just that many harsh people on the stack exchange community? Are the Official Stack Exchange tips really unhelpful or am I missing something? I could really use your help.
I'm, not looking for how to reopen a closed question, nor am I asking for anyone to reopen one of my closed questions without me making modifications first.
