Hi all, just griping because I have posted answers to at least 35 different questions and the author has not closed them out and either accepted or rejected the posts. This drives me nuts. Please question posters, rate the answers and CLOSE THEM when the problems are solved. I am not by anymeans "point hungry", I just want to know if my advice was good or bad.

Thanks for listening to my gripe!!

This is an old issue and it's currently being looked into by TR.

I personally have about 61% of answers unrated nd I really don't expect things to change in a hurry if things remain the same. But TR has a new Site build in the pipe line so we'll all see a different methoid of how Questions are addressed some time in the future. I'n not sure what's going to happen but anything has to be better then the current system.

I think most of the people who answer questions, have some that are still 'not rated' from months ago.

One suggestion as mentioned by Dr Dij could be to have an expiry for the question that the setter can set, and also amend if the question is still active.

Have another 'answer status' of 'expired', whereby if the question has expired, and after notifying the setter, the question is left as expired (so can probably assume the question is dead, forgotten, or that the setter is cheating everyone out of the points), then all answers that are 'Not Rated' get set to 'Expired', and everyone gets a portion of the points, just for the effort.

If the expiry date of the question is hidden, then it would stop people trawling through old questions to post dummy responses to get points.

Just a thought.
