Today I wanted to ask a question, it turns out that I was banned from asking and the only way to regain the ability to ask again is to improve my existing questions.

  • I have a positive score here, meaning that none of my questions are downvoted, I have only 1 closed question which I chose to delete because, because no one can answer it, so I chose to delete it and improvise my own solution
  • My questions don't receive answers, but that doesn't mean they are bad, it just mean either they are hard or not enough users saw them or no one is interested, again none of my questions are downvoted
  • How am I suppose to improve my existing questions if none of them are downvoted in the first place and only 1 closed?
  • Are you sure you don't have deleted questions older than 60-days that you can't find them anymore and only mods can help you? – Andrew T. Feb 2 at 21:39
  • @AndrewT. If such questions exists, I can't find them, nor remember them. they aren't listed under my profile, in any case, those that aren't deleted have a positive score, I mean I can't imagine the number of deleted questions one must have in order to be banned. I've been a stackoverflow user for over 10 years with tons of deleted questions, not banned there – Lynob Feb 2 at 21:43

    11 of your 20 questions have been deleted. That's a lot. – fuxia Feb 2 at 21:44
  • @fuxia what?????? Could you please let me know who's deleting them? Is there auto deletion? – Lynob Feb 2 at 21:45
  • Most were deleted by yourself, the rest by the community user, a script that deletes abandoned, closed questions without upvoted answers. Start by improving your existing questions without upvotes. – fuxia Feb 2 at 21:49
  • @fuxia I don't see how I could do that, they're too hard for anyone to answer them in the first place that's why they'll be ignored like they are ignored now like wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/308750/… and wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/308625/… and wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/305578/… – Lynob Feb 2 at 21:56
  • @fuxia When you see that your questions don't get answers and people are leaving comments without answers, you might want to delete them – Lynob Feb 2 at 21:58
  • Questions regarding 3rd party plugins (WooCommerce, Yoast, Polylang, etc. ) are also considered to be off-topic. At least 35% of your questions involve a 3rd party plugin of some kind. – Howdy_McGee Feb 3 at 2:00
  • @Lynob your statement about wanting to delete questions when you dont get answers and people leave comments is probably what got you into this mess. Instead, improving questions and answering comments makes you more likely to get answers and upvotes. E.g. in your first example of an ignored question, it was never ignored. It's just that your endpoints were created by an unknown plugin. As a result what you asked didn't make a lot of sense. If you'd created the endpoints via code rather than a tool then the answer would have been super easy to give. In the strictest sense the Q was offtopic – Tom J Nowell Feb 4 at 0:17
  • As for the second question that got ignored, you said you'd try something then get back to me but then you never did. Now that I've seen both questions side by side though, I see that what I thought you were asking is not what you were actually asking, and that it too might be offtopic due to the plugin you're using to generate it. I thought you were asking how to upload files to create attachments, e.g. via the official core endpoint. I and others here have no idea what to do with custom endpoints unless shown the code – Tom J Nowell Feb 4 at 0:20
