Just curious on moderator etiquette here.
In reviewing "unanswered" questions that appear to have been answered but for which an answer has not been accepted I'm wondering if it is appropriate for a moderator to email them nicely (and only very occasionally) and ask them if they will revisit the site to accept an answer?
It would also give us a chance to tease out more info about their question if in fact they didn't get a good answer in hopes that with more info someone will answer it.
So would occasionally emailing askers of questions who've abandoned them be inappropriate, or acceptable?
I'm asking mostly in reference to new StackExchange sites like WordPress Answers which don't have the number of users that an SO has and don't have an ingrained culture yet, i.e the vast majority don't understand the SE mechanisms yet. After a site is "on it's feet" this might not longer be an issue.
