Amazing milestone! Our first $1000$-question user.

    $\begingroup$ Is Dominic our first 1000-question user? In any event, congratulations! $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @TimCampion Users with most posts, questions. (Those SEDE queries can be run on any site.) Some SEDE queries posted here are tangentially related: How does one check progress towards a (second) Socratic badge? And you might also check who has the most hot questions. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 16, 2022 at 6:42

    $\begingroup$ @TimCampion: Yes, as Martin's queries show. I added that. Thanks. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 16, 2022 at 13:12

    $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak Maybe more interesting than merely counting posts would be non-CW question "h-index" / non-CW answer "h-index" (i.e. the maximum number $h$ such that a given user has at least $h$ non-CW questions / non-CW answers with score at least $h$) -- can you maybe write a SEDE query which computes this? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @StefanKohl I don't think that making such a query would be completely straightforward. I've posted your message in the SEDE chatroom, maybe somebody might respond there. Or you could ask on Meta Stack Exchange. (I found a query written by somebody else which computes some kind of h-index for a single user: data.stackexchange.com/mathoverflow/query/45194/…) $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 16, 2022 at 17:39

    $\begingroup$ I think we should strive for quality rather than quantity. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 17, 2022 at 6:10

    $\begingroup$ Incidentally, at least one of Dominic's questions led to a paper: meta.mathoverflow.net/a/3188/6094. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 17, 2022 at 11:36

    $\begingroup$ @StefanKohl Creating such query would be beyond my knowledge of SQL - but you can have a look what other users suggested. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 17, 2022 at 16:27

    $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak Thank you! Though, besides -- I think Emil Jerabek has hit the nail on the head, beyond all numerical indices. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @EmilJeřábek You have a point, but there is also something to be said for lowering one's filter a bit. If every question one asks is of very high quality, then I think it's likely that one has thrown out many valuable questions with the bathwater. With regard to Dominic in particular, I think his relentless inquisitiveness is something to celebrate! Our community is the richer for having him! $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks - I just stumbled over this by googling my own name... Thanks Joseph for the post, and also to the commenters! $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 20, 2022 at 14:47

    $\begingroup$ I totally understand Emil's point of view - and at the same time, a big thank you to everyone, and thanks Tim - and apologies for the (not so few) rubbish questions I have to delete soon after posting. $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 20, 2022 at 15:34
