Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Are there any statistics available correlating when a SO question is asked until when it receives an upvote or an answer.

I feel like if you ask a good question that's relevant to a large number of people and one that will usually gain a reasonable answer that it's answered in the first 8 hours or less when that question is posted.

I do understand that some questions are really really specific and really really useful to a certain group of developers so maybe those don't fall into that category.

It'd just be interesting to know the emergent behavior of questions/answers on SO, this is probably all rolled into "featured" questions etc.
