What about the idea of rewarding 'Good Questions'? For example, 'How would you explain how to do this equation?' Personally, I'm a fan of when people ask why, not what.

    It would be nice too, if getting a medal on a question marked as a "good question" was worth more XP. That way very difficult questions can be worth more XP and people who can do harder problems move up the ranks more quickly. Perhaps it would also be in order to have some special bonus for helping someone on the same problem for a prolonged amount of time; say at least a half-hour. Of course, you'd need to avoid people posting multiple questions on the same line to avoid abuse of this reward.

    Yep, we've considered this mechanic too (better questions act as multipliers on medals given in them).

    We won't be doing it initially, but we're definitely thinking about how it could work.
