Just a thought: A way to encourage new users to keep returning to the site would be to prioritize answering these questions over the regular users.

What do you think?

I have asked a truckload of questions and plan to answer the ones that sit for too long unanswered.

I would say to do both - an example, my 'routine' of sorts is:

  • Check the review lists

  • Check meta

  • Check the recent questions

  • Check the unanswered lists

  • Maybe write a question

  • Just to summarise - my own personal preference is to answer questions first before I answer one. – user3180 Aug 17 '13 at 5:31

    I think you meant to say your preference is to answer a question before you ask one, right? – user3116 Aug 18 '13 at 21:29

    I'm sorry to hear that, @Damien. Hope you get better quickly. – user3116 Aug 19 '13 at 7:46
  • @what thank you for that - but what I have won't get better, but thankfully won't get worse. – user3180 Aug 19 '13 at 8:26
