Not really when it comes to answering questions, I'm here to answer questions to genuinely help out folks who have unanswered questions.
Now when it comes to asking questions, yes I do do it to get the accolades though, because for the most part I usually know the answers to the question I've asked.
That's not the only reason for participating in the Q&A area for me, I also enjoy reading peoples answers as well as questions to see who's who, and who I might wanna follow next based on their logic & reasoning when answering or asking specific question of interest.
Nice Question! Now your getting followed for this question, so there you go @ DougBerry.
I might even throw in a few hub views for you too, because I also love reading the hubs of people who ask the best questions and provide exceptional well thought out answers as well.
