As I mentioned in a comment (which I've now deleted): I'm afraid none of us can 'unban' you. It's a system ban, it's not somebody who personally chose to impose a ban on you. Please see: What can I do when getting "We are no longer accepting questions/answers from this account"? But, you asked Please review some of my answers Ok, that I can do. ...

Well, every time you copy people's answers for your own benefit, a tiny piece of your own soul dies, so that might be sufficient punishment for these people (or at least part of the punishment). (I'm half serious about that: for example, you can copy somebody else's answers for homework or an exam, and you might do very well, but in truth you're the one who ...

Disclaimer: I can't answer for everybody, it is a "feature" of Stack Exchange that upvotes and downvotes are personal. On one hand I can empathise with you: it's good to have a natural curiosity about science. Thus, forgive me for being blunt, but I will point out the likely reasons for downvotes here: The questions are pretty repetitive. A number ...

I vote against adding ChemDraw JS to the Help Center. First of all, adding a single editor creates a false impression of a de facto standard, which it is not. Users need to have freedom of choice and be aware of the alternatives. If anything, adding link to the Software answer would be the right choice. Second, by mentioning a product on the official help ...

Based on your questions you seem to have a misconception as to the purpose of closing a question. Please read What does it mean if a question is "closed"? first, then come back to this. Why would I close my own question? I imagine this is a rare scenario, but it is sometimes used, e.g. when the asker finds a duplicate of their own question after ...

Who can edit the Help Centre? Diamond moderators i.e. myself (as of the time of writing), can edit a grand total of two Help Centre pages, namely: The front page. It is possible to add an introductory section at the top, although currently there is none. What topics can I ask about here?. See also: What parts of the help center can site moderators edit? ...

I have no definitive proof of what I am about to write and I might be a bit rusty on the details because it's a situation that doesn't happen that often. I vaguely remember that if you retract a close vote it is gone. I am not aware of any way to get it back. A small caveat might be that the question is closed, then reopened, and then you might be able to ...

Stack Overflow-the-company made some changes to user profiles in early August 2021, which, let's say, were not taken very positively: Some changes to the profile while we make it responsive The "last seen" part of your profile is now only visible to you and the moderators on each site. So, unless you are a moderator, you cannot see anybody else's &...

To wrap the comments up, you commented I think it didn't like my tag "bismuth" and this tag issue was the reason. The system were declining your question because you were trying to create a new tag without having 300 rep points. In the future, please refrain from creating tags for the chemical elements: these are useless because you can find all ...

A number of your questions could be adequately explained by reading a (good, high-quality) textbook, or by watching some proper online videos. Examples (some of which will only be visible to 10,000-rep users): Why does $\Delta G < 0$ mean spontaneity? — the reasoning is explained in any good physical chemistry textbook. Are bonds in benzene continually ...

Yes, but you have to use the brand New Feature: Table Support, i.e. use Markdown tables instead of LaTeX. For example: |Year|Value| |:--:|-----| | [1969](https://physics.nist.gov/cuu/pdf/1969RMP.pdf#page=50) | 6.022 52(7) &times; 10<sup>23</sup> | | [1973](https://physics.nist.gov/cuu/pdf/1973JPCRD.pdf#page=25) | $6.022\, 176(97) \times 10^{...

Apparently with the new markup tables you can enter images in a cell. I found out the functionality while writing this answer. And the bonus is that it is quite easy, just make a table as you normally would and insert the image description part in the relevant cell. For example the code: | Animal | Image | |---|---| | Dog | [![Dog][1]]...

Why was my question closed? Probably because you have three questions in one, although in your question they are related and I don't really consider that a problem, thus I would be open to reopening in this case. No reason was giving for closing the question Technically, the close reason is already provided to you (it's the large box above your question). ...

know if anyone can create a chat room Not everybody can. In order to create a chat room, you need to have 100 reputation. Please see: What is reputation? and Privileges. If yes, then how? If you can create one, it is as simple as going to chat (click on the Stack Exchange logo at the top-right, then chat), scrolling to the bottom of the page, and clicking ...

I completely agree that although the edit fixed some MathJax issues, it was mostly unnecessary and introduced new problems. Usually you should see a Rollback link in your editing history within the previous version: Further details on main Meta: What is a 'rollback'? The editor had over 2000 rep points which allowed their edit to be applied directly and ...
