It seems that sometimes questions get asked, and some very nice answers are given (sometimes with quite some effort on the part of the answerers).
However, the asking party sometimes forgets to accept an answer (happens especially with newbie users (<100 reputation points)).
Can't we have something for questions which have no life in them anymore, such that after X days, an answer is auto-accepted (and rep points given to the top answer)?
EDIT: changed the close to accept, since this what I meant.
Additional thoughts when reading the comments:
Still it seems 'unfair' that good answers don't get the nice green check mark they deserve just because the OP forgets about the question. We might have then some reminder thingy where the OP is reminded after X days of nothing happening with his question that an answer has not yet been accepted.
