I asked my first question the other day and it got negative votes so I ended up deleting it by asking moderators to do so since it had an answer on it but it was a bad question regardless so it didn't need to stay.

I ended up asking another question and was originally asked to split it into two questions. I was able to edit that question into just one but I've been receiving the below message for a few days even though my bad question has been deleted.

Is there a way to get a moderator override on this below restriction since that bad question has been removed? Otherwise, I suppose I could create another account, ask the question, and ask for the accounts to be merged later once some time has passed?

The system doesn't forget your deleted questions, and that is by design. The idea is to prevent new users from creating too much low-quality content. Deleted questions count toward that.

I think you can wait another day before asking a new question.

  • @1Fish_2Fish_RedFish_BlueFish There's a "deleted recent questions" link in the questions tab in your profile. It should lead you to this question.

  • @Yannis That's exactly what I was NOT doing actually. This completes the answer to my question now that you point that out!! Feb 17, 2016 at 19:57
