    I had a thought. I remembered something I saw a while back on some other forum. And then it came to fruition. (Except I made it as a "forum" rather than a link in the navbar. It's sorta crowded up there.)

    You should now see an "Unanswered Threads" forum in the Community section. As it states, you have to be logged in to use. It lists all unanswered threads within the past week.

    As the site grows the most busy forums will be fully capable of pushing an unanswered thread to page X with other hot topics taking over. Sure, the 'new posts' link could still be used for this - but this makes it a little easier to keep track of who still needs assistance, for those interested.

    One day if we assemble a "ensure everyone gets some sort of response" team, this will be a valuable tool for them as well.

    Thanks.

    To spread the world of Unanswered Threads, if someone posts a response in an thread that they were linked to through Unanswered Threads, can the post read something, like a signature, that says "Found Via Unanswerd Threads, check it out"

    Comparatively speaking, not a whole lot of Eris stuff there. ;)

    Eris users must get a lot of answers in the Eris forums. :)
