Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Why don't you guys create a website where the unanswered questions (sorted by oldest) from the stack networks are displayed, giving them a second line of exposure?

I, as an user of the Stack Exchange network, like to have more than 90% questions answered.

I would also suggest that you start interacting and getting users involved more. After all, loyal users are what make a website or an idea successful.

Here's a chair, son. Have a seat. Let's talk about your problems, shall we? – Brian Sep 6 '11 at 21:08
Do you think someone will go to a site with only unanswered questions? The ones who want to answer these are already able to do so via the unanswered-tab. – Paŭlo Ebermann Sep 6 '11 at 21:09

You can find a list of unanswered questions already built into Stack Overflow and given prominent mention in main navigation under Unanswered.

To get the exact view you're looking for, just click Newest and voila: 7535 pages of questions—sorted by date—there for the taking.

Now, I hear you asking: "why are there so many pages of unanswered questions?" Well, unanswered questions are unanswered usually for one of two good reasons:

  • They're not very good questions to begin with, or
  • They require specialized knowledge that even the vast user base of Stack Overflow can't answer

Making a separate site or making the already-prominent Unanswered section more prominent doesn't make these reasons go away. So while it's a bit sad that some questions don't get the love, it's a bit of an intractable problem that isn't solved by quick fixes.
