    When trying to page unanswered threads, in about 30 % of cases I get error "Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.", forcing me to go to main page, Unanswered threads and page it again. Is there some time limit after which this thread is no more active (I read and answer questions, so sometimes it takes some minutes before trying to go to next page).

    That happens all the time to staff too. The search times out and you have to start over. I often go to the last page first, and work my way from older threads to newer. It doesn't happen as frequently.

    As a followup, use CTRL-Click (will open threads in a separate tab) so you aren't going back and forth between the thread list and threads. It can help mitigate the problem.
