What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

It seems to me that questions on the C, C#, Java tags are the ones getting upvotes more quickly.

Is there some kind of statistics about it?

Thanks!

If you know SQL, you can create a query to find out here. One caveat, though, is that vote timestamps are anonymized such that the resolution is only to the day. This will likely affect the results of your computations, as voting activity is generally highest when the question is asked, and trails off quickly as time goes on. –  Jon Seigel Nov 10 '10 at 18:08

There already is a query for it. The result may surprise you:
