That's a weird title for a bug report: Answered question with positive scored answer appearing in unanswered question list.

This question: Wallet initialization failed: basic_string::resize on Monero Stack Exchange beta was recently merged with another thread. Before the merge it had no answers and was listed under unanswered questions.

Now, after the merge, it has one answer with a positive score (+3) and should not be listed there anymore. However, there seems to be a glitch and the question is still listed as unanswered.

The merge happened 3 days ago, so it is definetely no caching problem.

Edit, as per comments, should be:

    I and another user are noticing occasional upvoted Q&As on the Unanswered lists at Geographic Information Systems too. I have not looked yet to see whether a merge is in their history but I will.

    I checked one of the questions mentioned above at gis.stackexchange.com/questions/115028modelbuilder and found that it had a merge in its history too. In that case the merge happened 18 months ago.

  • @PolyGeo FYI, I just saw query on maximum minimum of multi-variable function in the unanswered list despite having a score 6 answer. Note I've read through over 2,000 questions on this list (I'm working with a few others to help reduce the unanswered list size by checking those with answers which deserve to be upvoted), sorted by relevance at pages 121 & 151 (I'm doing it on 2 machines) but i'ts the first one I've found. As the post is from Jan. 21, 2017, I hope this problem has been fixed by now. Do you think I should write a new question? Mar 8, 2020 at 0:32
  • @JohnOmielan I don't think that you should re-ask an existing question. Instead I think you could write an answer saying that you've reproduced this here, offer a bounty and/or take a look at what you can do after 15 Mar 2020 as per meta.stackexchange.com/questions/344586/…

  • There may be duplicates for this question - see meta.stackexchange.com/… - with at least one saying status-completed when it's not.

  • @PolyGeo Thanks for your feedback & suggestions. I did a search & also noticed several other related questions here. This is one reason I was unsure if I should post a new question or do something else instead. As for at least one being status-completed, if you're referring to Merged questions still show up in the Unanswered list, it seems to be regarding a different issue. I've decided to wait a while to see if I notice any other such questions, especially more recent ones, & then consider what, if anything, to do then. Mar 8, 2020 at 0:54
