I tried to ask a question, but it was rejected because, "it does not meet our quality standards". I'm not sure how my question failed to meet those standards. How can I improve my question?
This question is answered in the official FAQ for the StackExchange system, meta.StackOverflow:
What can I do when getting “It does not meet our quality standards”?
What can I do to get the system to accept my question?
Make sure your question has
- a clear title
- a reasonable explanation of what your question is, sharing your research on the matter
- correct use of English and actual sentences
If your question is so brief that it could be looked up in a dictionary or reference book/site trivially, it might not be a good fit on our network.

OK, I managed to get past the screening algorithm by doing two things: making the question a little longer, and asking it in English instead of Spanish.
I expect the screening algorithm to be altered in the Spanish language and culture forum to allow for questions asked in Spanish, even if the Spanish is not quite correct.
In general, if I criticize my own style, it's that I'm too verbose. I find it strange that the algorithm would penalize me for being terse.
