You've asked 3 questions recently, some of which have not been received very well by the community.

I've asked 3 questions, 2 questions with 0 votes, the 3rd with -4.

Is it really enough to get the ban? How long does it stand?

What's the easiest way to get over the limit? Post more answers or it's just time-based?

Is it really enough to get the ban?

Just FYI, in the course of an hour you asked questions which have as their votes (as I type this):

-6 / +1 / 3 close votes

-2 / +2 / 2 close votes

-0 / +0 / 2 close votes

That's generally not a good trend. For more reading, I'd suggest the main meta post on this.

Also worth noting that this warning still exists:

The question you're asking appears subjective and is likely to be closed

You ignored it and posted the question anyway...


It's not all about votes.

Each of your 3 questions has also attracted close votes. As I look at them, two have 2 close votes, and the other has 3.

While I don't know the exact formula for the threshold at which you get a question ban, that'll come into it.

As to the length of the ban, the message you get when you try to post a question should tell you - it's not public data, so only you or the SE team will be able to find that out.
