I would suggest to change the title of the Unanswered Questions page from "Unanswered Questions" to "Unanswered Questions (questions with no answers or no upvotes yet)". Or perhaps add an asterisk and a footnote to explain what it means by "unanswered" in this case.

    A footnote like this? – Tim Stone Nov 2 '12 at 22:04
  • basically, the page title is "unanswered questions" but most of the questions it lists have answers, which seems confusing... – rogerdpack Nov 2 '12 at 22:05

    That confusion then only lasts until you click on the link, because it's explained in bright orange letters afterwards. I don't think we should have the long title you propose. And if we hide it in a footnote anyway, the orange text on the actual page will suffice as well. – Bart Nov 2 '12 at 22:08
  • @Bart see comment to the current one answer. – rogerdpack Nov 3 '12 at 13:47
  • Why not just answer all the questions with good answers or upvote all the answers? :P – bjb568 Dec 19 '14 at 19:12

    I would also like to peruse questions that have received no service, whatsoever. Denying us this is their stop-gap to FGitW? – Mazura Dec 19 '14 at 20:50

We already have that, not as a footnote but as a very clear, very brightly colored subheader, as pointed by Tim Stone:


A lengthy title is never good, and since the confusion is cleared rather immediately, I see no need to change anything at this point.

  • Unfortunately, at least for mep, this is located on the right so the subheader connection isn't quite clear...in fact it's almost like it's saying "this is a sub type of all unanswered questions" which leaves me wondering "so where are the real unanswered ones" suggestion/feature request: move it directly under the title. – rogerdpack Nov 3 '12 at 13:46

    I might also suggest a more accurate (but still small) title for that page, like "unconfirmed answers" or the like...to cause less confusion for users. thanks! – rogerdpack Nov 3 '12 at 14:21
