I am new to Stack Exchange and would like to know how greatly having one of your questions closed is detrimental and if such possible "offenses" end up penalizing your account in any way (especially if multiple closed questions were to accumulate over time).
I have read that having a "closed" question is not a punishment, but I want to make sure of this, so that I can best suit my thinking to be tailored to the proper rules. I asked a bit of a stretch question that was voted as too broad by the community (even though I did not intend to and tried to avoid straying too far off topic). Despite asking the wrong question, I was still able to get helpful answers from stack exchange members and I am okay with having the question closed.
I now understand where I went wrong, but I do feel concerned about the potential seriousness of my mistake as a new user. I also feel ashamed and regretful about it and will do my best in the future to ask questions better pertained to the specific content of this stack exchange.
As of present, my question is "on hold". After it is "closed" will it disappear or most likely be deleted from the site? From what I read off of the help section, a "closed" comment should remain on the site with the same features as a comment "on hold", but as a new member I want to check that I am understanding this information correctly.
Any extra feedback for me is welcome. Thank you!
