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

This question already has an answer here:

As a new user and therefore perhaps "fresh eyed" to the site, I found the following a bit confusing:

In the main menu Questions you find a sub entry called Unanswered.

But in main menu one also find "Unanswered" as it's own entry (and sub-menu "no answers").

Have a look at the image,

enter image description here

Trying a little forth and back I now realize the difference, but perhaps an improvement can be made here simply by choosing some other title (ie. Non-responded or unsolved... ).

Besides from that, excellent pages and site!

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

And I think there's a not-so-subtle but potentially confusing/contradictory difference between them: the unanswered accessed from All Questions lists questions with no answers, the other will list questions with answers but not an accepted one. – Grant Thomas Sep 27 '12 at 15:25
@Mr.Disappointment That's mostly right. The second "unanswered" tab shows questions with no upvoted answers rather than just ones without an accepted answer. – Adam Lear Sep 27 '12 at 15:58

Stack Overflow now uses different terms for these two:

  • "unanswered": questions that don't have upvoted answers.
  • "no answers": questions that don't have any answers.

unanswered and no answers
