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?
Fortunately, there are lots! See:
