I asked who has asked the most questions, but who has answered the most questions?

    – Valorum

A (very) slight improvement over KutuluMike's answer:

Users who have answered the most distinct questions

To nobody's great surprise, it's still Valorum, with DVK trailing by a wide margin

Usual SEDE disclaimers apply:

  • Deleted questions/answers are not accounted for
  • SEDE updates weekly, so this result is a few days out-of-date. Seems unlikely that the top spots have changed dramatically, though
  • @DVK-in-exile You were right the first time, it's the visited colour for SEDE; I wanted to check that the number was correct, and I chose you as my test user. You're not the only profile I've visited, but you're the only link on that page that I clicked Commented Sep 16, 2016 at 15:47

As usual you can use the Stack Exchange Data Explorer for this.

Taking the query Mithrandir used in your first question, we can just change "questions" for "answers" and get:

Who Posted The Most Answers

Not surprisingly, at this point, it's Valorum and DVK.

NOTE: It's possible to post multiple answers to one question, so a better query would account for that, but that's very rare so this is a pretty good representation.

  • sorry, i had just run the query and his username was in my brain
