Growing number of unresolved questions
A whole lot of the questions in unresolved are IMHO properly answered, but the one who asked never came back or just forgot to accept the answer. This way they are still in unresolved and you have to dig for really unresolved questions. To find unanswered questions is easy, just click on "no answers"
So i like to suggest that answered but not accepted questions stay in unresolved for, lets say, two month.
After that they change status to orphaned and after another two month the answer gets auto accepted.
Before the answer changes status the user should get a e-mail to log in and check a box to keep his question in unresolved for another two month.
I like to help people to repair their stuff, where to find information how to do it or even what might be the problem.
The unresolved questions is a good place to find answered questions with answers that might not fit.
What i don't like is to dig in IMHO properly answered questions of people who doesn't seem to be interessted in getting an answer. Because some questions are still in unresolved for nearly half a year and if these questions are not answered the way the user want's to after that time, i have to say sorry, there is no other answer and move on.
Is this a worthwhile discussion?
