Well I only just came on but I see recommended questions from other users for the moment... though I have already had different recommended questions from the same user before. No idea what exactly triggers it. It seems to have something to do with the people you follow but the mathemetic formula behind the selection has nothing but secrets for me :-)
I think the recommended questions are usually from users you follow. I don't know why hers would be popping up more often though.
Also, just to clear up something someone else said here, editors are not hired by the site. Editor status just means that the person's myTakes will be automatically promoted rather than an admin having to manually promote them. We don't get paid to do it though.
You probably follow very little users. Before I only followed about less than 5. Only one of them made questions frequently. On my recommended questions, I could even see his Anon questions. I know they were his because he would share the links to me.
