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.

Any AMO expert want to try to make it zero?

No unanswered threads found in the last 8 days. Why not https://www.physicsforums.com/unanswered/threads?days=5000 instead?
Nothing after February 2018 due to Greg's bot.

We did it!:partytime:
(alternatively, we have just proven that question answerers have nothing better to do on a Friday evening than answer questions while question askers probably have much better things to be doing)

... and it shows a LaTeX guide from 2011.
It applies to what is in the current forum.

The title could be a link to the unanswered threads page, that would give it more visibility.
That would be nice, but the widget framework is not super flexible to allow that.

Unanswered thread sidebar widget has been added!
Uh ... where? I'm probably just blind but I don't see it. I'm assuming you're talking about a count, not just the list of unanswered threads.

In the homepage, in the sidebar, you will find the widget.

That is the widget.
So, there IS no "number of unanswered threads" ? See post #157. The # of unanswered threads is clearly what I've been asking about

No, that is not there. The widget only lists the unanswered threads.
 
  • #163
So, @Greg Bernhardt have you decided to no longer list the number of unanswered threads or is that one of the things that's still on the back burner?
