I think its the popularity of the asker because I see a lot of questions on here by popular or guru, master users that aren't interesting or are just duplicates of past questions and they get answered a whole lot. Not mad about that just stating facts... Thoughts?

I had a question on here that got featured, although I am definitely not a popular asker (I've been here for less than two weeks).0

The way questions are seen is by the amount of followers partially. If you follow a person, you may start seeing their questions start popping up in "recommended" and such. If you base popularity off the amount of followers, then yes-- they get more exposure which tends to mean more answers.
However, an original/interesting question may get mod selected or admin selected and featured. Featured questions get more exposure since they appear in yellow/gold around the site as you scroll down.0
