I'm still fairly new to Ask Ubuntu, and trying to build my rep steadily. I have a bit of solid knowledge in some areas, and try to apply that to answering questions (only if I know what I'm talking about).
The issue I'm seeing, is that with these fairly easy answers, whilst I'm composing a reply, some more experienced user, usually with rep > 40k, swoops in and answers the easy question, snaffling the rep in the process.
I'm not moaning about someone being quicker than me, it just seems that difficult questions, that these users have more of a chance of answering, tend to be ignored in favour of easy rep points.
I'm not proposing that experienced users should be blocked from answering these, it's just demoralising. Any suggestions on ways around this? Or just man up and keep plugging away?
