I'm posting this question motivated by the following fact. I'm rather new to exchange sites, I signed in because I needed an answer in Cross-Validated site.
I posted my question, mpiktas answered and my reputation grew significantly. There where no comments, no editing. Just one question and one answer and some votes.
Since then I've been posting several answers of this sort. I'm not an expert in many topics in statistics but I have some experience. All of this time my reputation has grown very slowly which made me wonder: Does asking questions is more efficient to increase reputation? Let me phrase it again, does a good question increases reputation more that a good answer?
On the other hand, there seems to be zillions of unanswered questions. Is that because the incentives to asking a question are higher than those for answering?
