This is my second question on hot network questions. I was shocked to find this question that I asked on the list: If a collection of closed sets of arbitrary cardinality in a metric space has empty intersection, does some countable subcollection?
The amount of activity on the question is quite small, however I have 38K rep and the two users who answered the question have over 100K rep. This made me wonder if maybe the reputation had something to do with it.
I combed through the hot network questions at the time and found that many did have quite high reputation users participating, but there was at least one where no one was over 1K. However, that question had 160+ upvotes, whereas mine has 3.
