In case you missed the news, upvotes on questions now grant +10 reputation instead of +5, and the change has been implemented retroactively (most if not all users have already had their reputation recalculated). This change was welcomed mostly neutrally or positively (who doesn't like free rep?) but I did hear some concerns from other users about where this may take us (mostly those who I know personally, but this meta question is very likely motivated by a similar concern (edit: that question is now deleted; it asked about the impact of the change on the number of questions posted)).
I am aware that while MathOverflow is part of Stack Exchange, there is a unique agreement between MO and SE (as described and linked here). I admit I have not read the entirety of the agreement so I don't know exactly what it allows in regards to MO following different rules than other SE sites.
My questions are then this:
Would it be possible, if the community and/or the moderation team on MO decide so, to revert this reputation change on this site?
If there is such a possibility, should we take it?
Opinion ahead: I am personally not a fan of the change. While I understand where the SE are coming from introducing it, arguing that asking a good question is an art in itself, I feel like it is not as true on this website as it is elsewhere. While there are of course some great questions there (like this one), I do still believe that writing a good question is generally not as much of a demanding task as coming up with a good answer, the latter often requiring more insight and sheer work, and they should be rewarded accordingly. There are of course people who disagree with me on this stand (this was the most upvoted feature request), but I know people who agree, and I would like to put this to a discussion.
