I am no longer actually requesting this feature, but I guess leaving feature-request rather than discussion allows Jeff to eventually mark as status-declined, which might help when duplicates show up? Retagging or deletion allowed, of course!
- Randomly poke old unanswered questions every hour so they get some attention
Here, "unanswered" is defined as having no answers with upvotes (or accepted). Hence, a question with non-upvoted answers might be bumped as well, like today:
Of course, these sites are about Q&A, not about the user who asked the question. But often the authors of such questions have not responded to comments from other users, or have not even logged in to the site since asking the question, thus leaving the question in some dead state. This is even more true for migrated questions.
Hence: Could the bumping-mechanism be changed to only bump questions of users who have recently logged-in?
