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!

    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. Commented Sep 27, 2012 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.

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
