What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I am curious which user posted the most questions. Is there a way?

I'm sure you and your sock-puppets rule the question-asking domain. Of course you could just parse the data-dump. – Lance Roberts Oct 22 '09 at 17:35
@Lance Roberts I suggest you read the FAQ on what considered an offensive behavior on SO. – Andrei Oct 22 '09 at 20:29

As of the latest dump, it appears that Masi has asked the most questions (770 now, 755 at the time of the dump)

Here's the query I used. The empty name at the top is for community-owned community wiki posts.

Well, at least he's answered some questions... about 11% of how many he's asked, which is better than some of the other question-spawners. ;) – gnostradamus Oct 22 '09 at 17:55
I don't get why people have a problem with other people asking questions, as long as they're not bad questions. They have to come from somewhere. – Joel Coehoorn Oct 22 '09 at 18:07
Oh, and I saw this question and went to StackQL to look up the answer myself. Since my shortcut takes me to the logs query first, I saw someone else was already working on it right away. Nice to see it get used. Now I just need to bug Jeff about a way to find out who asked all those community wiki questions. – Joel Coehoorn Oct 22 '09 at 18:09
@Joel - They can't all be good questions, especially with that many. And check his most active tag: [beginner] for 424. Are all 424 of those beginner questions good questions? – Super Long Names are Hilarious Oct 22 '09 at 18:58
There's nothing wrong with beginner questions, either. – Joel Coehoorn Oct 22 '09 at 19:08
