If you go to the main page of tex.stackexchange (do these Stack Exchange sites have a name?), you see many, many questions have a lot of upvotes and views.
On the mathematics site, however, it seems there are a lot fewer upvotes and (it seems to me) fewer views on average for a question, too.
Go to Stackoverflow and on the "interesting" tab--woah! A whole list of questions with 0 upvotes, 0 answers, and under 10 views. Granted, there are a bunch of green boxes (for the questions with answers), but it seems much of what's on the front page is pretty low-profile.
Why does it seem as if the more active sites (Mathematics seems to have done better than Tex/Latex according to Area 51) have less activity per question? Even the pretty new Physics beta site has more views per question than many of the Stackoverflow questions.
