Very frequently, the questions in the Unanswered Questions section have in fact been answered--either in the comments or via editing of the OP--but there are no answers posted to the question.

  • I know I can tell the OP to answer/accept an answer, but other than that is there anything else I can do?
  • I could also vote to close it, but often times the questions/answers are quite legitimate.

What are my other options to remove these questions from the unanswered tab?

    I think it's standard practice to use "Community Wiki" in this situation if you have enough rep.

    Some will do that, but I wouldn't call it standard practice. As far as I'm concerned, if you go to the work to make it happen, you deserve a little rep. Commented Sep 15, 2011 at 1:30

    Well, this isn't really an answer to make me happy, but it's probably the best I'll get. Commented Feb 29, 2012 at 21:33
