Announcement Browse unanswered threads is back!

Physics Forums is a big place and it's sometimes difficult to find those threads that haven't received a response yet. I think we can all agree that every thread deserves to be responded to in some capacity. That is what helpful and friendly communities do.

Back in PF 3.5 we had a link that listed the unanswered threads. That functionality is now back in PF 4.0!

The Unanswered Threads link is located in the Forums navigation drop down, right below New Posts. The list by default shows the last 5 days worth. There is a link at the top right to push it to 7 days.

Or you can quickly get there using this link
https://www.physicsforums.com/unanswered/threads

I should also mention that there is a trophy awarded to those who are often the first to respond to a thread.

Thanks!!

Yes it is.

Imagine my surprise when I went for the 'New Posts' button at the bottom of the 'Forums' dropdown, and found myself in a place where question after question was being posted but no one was answering...

Does the "auto-bump" post count as answering a thread?

edit: doh, missed that the list is only for a few days, so that's not an issue then :)

Level 5 got fixed today, so multiple members got it at the same time, including us here.

Edit: Got the awesome level :D.
