    UN-answered threads

    After the site outage yesterday, we have a few threads that have zero replies. I just posted my thoughts on a few, to get them started (posting bounces them back into the New Posts), thus they might get more replies as well.

    When something like a site outage happens, it is easy to miss a thread or 3 that were posted just prior to the outage, but if each of us just answers one, it can help the member who posted it. Getting zero replies can be disheartening.

    If others would like to help and give those member's threads a reply, it would be appreciated, I am sure.

    Un-answered threads and Un-answered CC threads can be accessed via the 'Searches' menu on the main AP menu.

    Actually it really isn't that bad. We have between 1000-2000 posts on the site per day, and generally between 100-200 new threads a day. So the percentage of those that do not get a reply is quite low, and is something that happens on all forum sites. But if we can point it out occasionally, it can only help those threads, and members, who do not get a reply.

    On that note, when I do an 'unanswered cc search' now, it brings up 3 threads, but then says below them

    "Results 1 to 3 of 7"

    Does that mean there are 4 threads I cannot see?

    hmmm. We have recently deleted a few duplicated threads. I wonder if the search is picking those up, but not showing them to you. The mods and I can still see them, but members cannot.
