I've noticed recently that SO appears to have hit a critical mass such that there are too many questions, and they're coming in too fast. On any given day, I look at the front page and all I see are questions with 0-1 answers. Even more-so 1 answer with few, if any, upvotes (usually the answer is poor).
This results in a number of problems:
- Legitimate questions don't get enough exposure
- Not enough questions get answers
- Not enough questions get good answers
Is this a known problem? Not considered a problem? Is anything being done to address it (min rep to ask, more focused SE sites being accepted, etc.)?
I've heard from other developer friends that asking questions on SO isn't very useful anymore because few people, if anyone, ever see them.
