I Joined in our main site an year back. I asked only 25 questions and answered no questions. Because, the answers by expert or senior users are very well drafted and it may take sometime for me to study the topics in detail to answer.
I can experience a consistent support from nbro♦. And our main site has experts from several domain. For example, I believe that Neil Slater is a domain expert from reinforcement learning (since he answered for RL questions by me and several others).
I am getting great answers from several other users as well. But, I have a small concern regarding the moderation and activity by experts in our main site and feeling slight dissatisfaction.
Very few senior/expert members are providing answers, upvoting, editing etc., It may discourage new users to join and contribute as well.
My question: Why do many (domain) expert users remain silent or calm?
I feel that our main site can achieve really great stature if such expert users are not silent.
I am guessing the (any or some) following reasons:
They are contributing to other related sites like Cross validation, Data sciences, Stack overflow, Computer science.;
They are not impressed by the quality of questions asked by the users;
They are busy with their professional or personal activities;
Are my reasons true? If not, what may be the reason for such inactivity? Or am I going wrong anywhere?
