Do users who ask questions that are favourited a lot (by other users) get any sort of credit e.g. badge etc or is this just a convenience for those reading the question?
There are two badges for having your question favorited. You get a silver "Favorite Question" badge if 25 people favorite your question and a gold "Stellar Question" badge if 100 people favorite your question. Both badges can be awarded multiple times.
