Since the split of MSO/MSE I noticed that the reputation on MSO does not change according to activity on MSO. This is all by design and okay for me.
But then I wondered, how does this impact the behavior of users on MSO? Are they more or less likely to post questions or answers? Or do most of them think:
I don't care for the badges, so I will spend my time on the main site where I can gain rep.
Of course, this question until now belongs on MSO itself, but I think we, as fresh child meta, can learn a lot from you guys having your own meta for a much longer time.
So my questions:
- Does the non-rep system on child metas affects users activity?
- Does the community benefit from this or not?
