To help users keep track of (and hopefully get answers to) unanswered questions, it would be useful to have an "unanswered" sort order on a user's profile page. It would order the list of questions with unanswered questions first. This would be in addition to the "recent," "views," "newest," and "votes" sort orders.
Your own unanswered questions:
Everyone's unanswered questions:
I have asked many questions. I really want a way to be able to quickly float the questions that have not been marked as having an accepted answer to the top.
I currently have accept rate of 86% on SF, 3 of the questions 22 eligible questions do not have an answer marked as accepted. I want a view to quickly identify those 3 questions so I can do something about them.
It would also be helpful to have an easy (i.e. easier than finding the correct search command...) way to find all of my own questions that I havent accepted an answer for.
Many times I ask a question when posed with a problem I cannot directly solve myself, but when I see the answer I might not have time to see if it works. If I can't tell immediately that it will, I don't mark it as answered, and before too long the question has fallen out of my mind and the author of the answer doesn't get credit for his efforts.
Sometimes, you can post a question and don't get a good answer. Then, after a while you find a good solution somewhere and it works, it is nice to post the answer to help others, too.
Sometimes you get an answer that didn't work right, but after few changes you get it (the answer helps you get there), but that is hard to remember after couple of weeks or even months (not my case at the moment, but it is nice to have it).
