Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Is it OK to only ask questions? What is the percentage of users always asking questions, and users always answering?

As someone with no formal programming training and someone who is committed to diving in and learning rigorously, is it OK that I'm currently JUST asking questions and not answering any (yet)?

Is this looked down upon?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Also -- as long as you're asking good questions, that's great. ("Good questions" meaning, roughly, questions other people can learn from). – Charles Duffy Apr 11 '12 at 0:01
It's cool, but you can also help the community by simply voting up good questions; by editing grammar/spelling for non-native speakers, etc. And one day you can answer too! – Adel Apr 11 '12 at 0:45

That's fine. Keep an eye on questions and help when you can.

You have to start somewhere. If people don't ask questions, there's no questions to answer!

That's very much OK, and also try to mark an answer if it helps and rate some of the answers that you feel as relatively closer by UP ^. Then it be both satisfactory to you as well the answerer.
