I'm curious as to whether the "unanswered questions" score for beta sites refers to:
- Questions with zero answers, or
- Questions with no upvoted or accepted answers.
These are two separate queues in the interface. I'm curious because I've been appointed moderator on a beta site and I'm trying to think of ways users can be encouraged to improve this score.
Obviously getting upvoted/accepted answers is the ideal, but this is less likely to happen with old questions, which is already a disincentive if I say, "Have a look and see what you can do". It would also be pointless to the site's stats if the criteria is #2, unless a parallel effort is made to also upvote answers for such questions.
