If you click on the "the Help Center" link, you will be brought to this page, which describes why questions are no longer being accepted from your account. Looking at your profile, it looks like you have triggered this automatic question block and there's nothing that we can do manually to reverse it. These blocks are triggered by asking questions ...

Thomas, I think you are barking the wrong tree. We have a problem on our site, and that problem lies clearly in our community: It has become almost impossible to ask a question without getting one or two downvotes at least. It does not matter if it is a good question, a mediocre one or one of those "explicitly off-topic and very, very unlikely to be ...

The same way as for regular suggested edits, i.e. via the Suggested Edits review queue. However, users need 5000 reputation to approve suggested edits to tag wikis; much more than the 2000 for regular Q&A posts. Therefore, those edits take much longer to be reviewed, see e.g. this SEDE query for comparison. (Some regular Q&A edits take or seem to ...

I looked at this and wondering if I can delete my negative rated questions to ask another question, since there seems to be an arbitrary limit being imposed by what ever measure that might be, so deleting a question to ask another question seems to should do the trick.

I'm not aware of any good Stack Exchange site to ask these types of questions. The questions best asked here are questions that require human thought, knowledge, and experience. Finding resources or references to read is something ...

The question may not look directly as a duplicate, but when you look into the comments, you see already a suggestion made by Caleth and me how to create objects referencing the "GPU data", assuming the latter follows a "structure of arrays" approach. And that is what this answer to the referenced duplicate was about. I admit, maybe the ...

I think the reason is that some users have the privilege to vote to close questions under certain conditions ... can vote to delete closed questions within 48 hours of being closed, so long as they score −3 or lower. https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/5222/314511 Would be great if the help center page be more clear about this.

-2 is a couple downvotes, which I don't think are public to other users. Could also be something like a suggested edit being accepted then later deleted. Voting fraud can also sometimes cause weird reputation changes. Back then, reputation was sometimes recalculated after the fact, so it wasn't always clear how it tied to an action.
