    Why do people ask so many questions? I mean you see 10 questions in a row 5 to 10 minutes apart.

    Is there something I have not been Q,ed in one. Is there a benefit for asking a lot of questions?, does it improve your ranking?, or is it that people are just bored out of their wits and are just spamming the question box to draw attention. Please I really would like to know the reason overall.

    For help i guess with something they are working on for a hub, or to gain points...I do think it helps but not a lot or maybe you have to ask a lot of questions, or they just want to know for personal reason, also i've seen that they don't understand something about how the site works...that's all I have...LOL. Wish I knew one straight up answer but there are several reasons for it. I've asked questions because I just didn't know the answer to it and research.

    I think they want to improve their hub score or they are just bored (teens/kids?).  A lot of their questions are not even questions and others just don't make any sense.  I ask questions to get input or advice from the community, and usually the system works well.

    Good Day wvierra

    The overarching, overriding concern is to score an accolade, one of the little E-medals. We know this is so because one hubber who is something of a, shall we say, prolific questioner has recently said as much. This hubber, whose identity I don't recall but you can probably find the question, formulated the question that went something like this: 'Since we have to ask one hundred questions to score an accolade, some of them are going to be stupid questions  [the hubber actually stated some of the questions were going to be stupid], why do some hubbers take the trouble to leave hateful remarks instead of just passing the question by?

    The point is (and you are not the first to notice this and most likely won't be the last) they want to score accolades and think it will raise their hub score. Again, we know this because one of them said so.

    Some do ask quite a few questions of a specific technical nature, but I don't think you were referring to them (am I right?).
