Recently I have been noticing a trend in the types of questions that are upvoted. I have concluded that questions that seem to be tough(tough in this context means that many users are not able to solve it) and effortless tend to get more upvotes than questions with "clear,useful research and effort".
While posts with at least some effort posted by new users are brutally downvoted and closed(as in this case), others with a lot of effort put in are poorly received, and sometimes left unanswered/abandoned.
I do believe that intriguing questions are to be upvoted for some attention. However, "effort put in" should be the decisive factor for upvoting a question. How can the community resolve this issue?
