When I join a SE site I often look through unanswered questions and try to answer as many of those as I can. However on this site there seems to be a lot of "dead" questions, by which I mean that neither the asker nor the community are interested anymore. As evidence: of the 11 questions I have answered 6 still have no upvoted answers.
I admit a possible explanation is that my answers aren't very good, but I haven't experienced anything like this on any other SE site. And the view counts on these questions are all under 150.
Put another way: Are there too few active members for this site to function properly using the SE model? At this rate it would take an excessive amount of work on my part to reach a level where I can contribute more substantially (e.g., review queues).
