More than a question, this is a suggestion, I've been told this is the right place to post it, so here I am.
My suggestion is, as the title says: A question from a seasoned user should be worth more than a question from newbies, or in other words, the point system should consider the reputation of the user asking a question.
I contribute to Stack Overflow for software development topics.
I just feel like there are too many (mostly novice) users asking the same 'basic' questions over and over again, making evident they haven't even tried. They ask experts to review their code (often a copy paste from a tutorial) and find errors (often just typos) or questions that are obvious evidence of laziness.
On the other hand, to increase their reputation, users tend to answer more of these 'easy to solve' questions than the hard questions posted by experienced programmers, because they earn the same points, and the hard questions remain often unsolved. This affects me because when I submit a hard question, many times it remains unnoticed, in favor of the easy questions.
