In summary, 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. There is a button to "auto-bump" posts to increase the number of responses. The first person to respond to a thread gets a trophy.

UG ... I just answered one but now it's now 60 ... it's going the wrong way. Call out the big guns !

Right you are ! Bet you got lots of conversations thrown at you for having your signature on these bumps. Is there a watchdog on the bot, or do the mentors have to do that ?

Nope, if she goes haywire, let me know! :biggrin:

Back to double digits! I think 9 was a record low though!

Is it possible to introduce a distinction between "no replies" and "unanswered"? What I mean is, I made a thread the other day, and for reasons of clarity made a 2nd post, which now means my thread no longer shows up in "unanswered threads" despite in no way actually being answered. It seems "clear" to me that, even if a thread has "replies", if they're all the OP, it's still part of the "question asking". (In my case I was still within the Edit timeframe, so I could have appended Post #2 to it, but let's not forget that the Edit window is, for its own reasons, tightly restricted.)

It sort of is possible in the homework forums. Sometimes an advisor will mark it as solved. But inside that list it is not possible at the moment.

I don't know, it's been a pretty slow semester from the start.

I could use a Spring Break! :smile:

Down to 3. Two of them are very specialized questions, and for the particle physics one I'm not sure if the question has a good answer.

The Circuits question is low-hanging fruit -- I'll leave it to the hounds in the EE forum. :biggrin:

and back to single digits again (8). I haven't really paid attention in past years but I assume it will stay relatively low during the summer.

This is probably the fewest threads I've seen in the unanswered box.

Any AMO expert want to try to make it zero?
