I can't ask a question on Stack Overflow. I have not been banned. When I try to ask a question, it says:

You must have at least 5 reputation to ask a question. Try answering some questions first.

    @fsb Not a duplicate. Stack Overflow is not a beta site, and the author of this question didn't know that they were attempting to ask on a per-site meta. – Sonic the Anonymous Hedgehog Oct 29 '19 at 3:43

    You're not a new user really though, you've had a previous (deleted) account that asked several questions. – Robert Longson Oct 29 '19 at 4:07

Looking at the list of privileges, it seems likely that you were trying to ask a question on Meta Stack Overflow, not on Stack Overflow proper.
