When I used to frequent the Ubuntuforums, one of the most useful links they had on there was a link to 'unanswered posts'. This meant that those posts that sat without anyone noticing them would be easy to find and post answers to.
Could this be introduced here?

I'll answer to remove the irony

That could be scary, I am sure I have my fair share of unanswered brain farts of Edugeek.

I was thinking of the old Googlewhack paradox. As soon as you post that you've found one it's no longer a Googlewhack.

I'm glad someone else answered this post first, couldn't bring myself to do it - was enjoying the irony .
I do think it would be a good idea though.

Whilst this is a good idea I also advocate removing General Chat posts from the main page so that less technical posts remain unanswered in the first place.

Agreed! I get involved in the general chat sometimes (not so much anymore) but some days (Friday in particular funnily enough) it's hard to get a technical question answered at all, and it's off to backwoods of 'New Posts' by Monday, never to be seen again...

You can easily find all unanswered post using the search function, I do it often and post replies to anything I can.

Indeed you can, and I do this sometimes. A link would be quicker though

I have thought about it but I have not found an ideal solution yet.
Like others have said, you dont want a huge wash of unanswered posts but likewise it would be useful.
I just went to see how they handled it at ubuntuforums but have they pulled the feature?

It does indeed look like they have pulled it. I've not been on there in a while - not been using Ubuntu much.

I would have thought you would have to implement an expiration date on unanswered posts or at least the facility to lock down unanswered posts and archive after a set amount of time has passed?

I am toying with hacking a mod to tweak this approach slightly. More details to come in the coming weeks
