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

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

It is easy for reverse -- Jon Skeet!

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
