I think that leaving questions open indefinitely may be the reason we see the same questions over and over again in this section. Would it improve user experience and make this section more interactive if questions were automatically closed to new answers after 6 months or something? Many of the "hot" questions here have hundreds of answers and are several years old.
sort by best latest
that for sure, but what about questions where a best answer is never chosen? They also remain open for ages.
I was under the impression that they are closed when a best answer is chosen Wes. Or is it that no one can post new answers but still post comments? Havent necessarily paid enough attention to know.
Even this could work - a time limit would be perfect.
Best Answer? But what if someone like me gets an awesome answer from you, Christin, and Bill (billybuc)? It's just impossible to pick a best answer!
I agree peeples, sometimes I get so many good answers it's hard to pick just one. Even if outsiders view - they can't answer, so I still think they should close or drop off feed right?
reopening with new concerns etc. would also be a good idea, good point.
The thing is, WE don't have the option to close and/or re-open our Q's. This is strictly an administration option,We merely post a question & choose a BEST & provide answers to others..I've asked only 6 Q's but do answer frequently.
