Why am I getting this message?

All new questions are subjected to a "minimum quality" filter that checks for characteristics of extremely poor questions. Your question has been caught by the filter.

What can I do to get the system to accept my question?

Make sure your question has

  • a clear title
  • a reasonable explanation of what your question is, sharing your research on the matter
  • correct use of English and actual sentences
  • proper spelling, grammar, capitalization, and punctuation

If your question is so brief that it could be looked up in a dictionary or reference book/site trivially, it might not be a good fit on our network.

Can you be more specific?

Exact details about the algorithm are not being released by the team.

I am against being explicit here.... Our check takes into account tags, title and body. We are not going to give breakdown of what was wrong, that is spoon feeding. (source: waffles)

If we provide a "formula" then it's just another way for users to bypass the question quality filters. (source: Jeff)

What are good resources on how to ask high-quality questions?
