    my vote woudl be for bumping unanswered posts after a week (or 2 days maybe) so they show up in the new posts thing again.

    Sounds like a great idea. At least it's an acknowledgment that the post has been read.

    This would be a good idea, but not by putting a post up! Just by sending a mail to the author! I had one that i kept checking, and had no answer in about a month! But ewventually sorted it myself! But i know most don't go unanswered!

    We will be implementing a system that will moved posts that have not had a reply in 72 hours to an unanswered posts section. The author of the post will be emailed when this happens. The program i am writing will also automatically move posts back once they receive a reply. Posts that have been in the unanswered posts section for more than 2 weeks will be removed, the author will again be emailed when this happens.

    This will proberly take about 2-3 weeks to implement, i'll make an annoucement once its done.

    Thanks,

    Jason

    72 hours, that's 3 days, I think 5 days (120 hours) is better, maybe you could add a polle here "How long time should it take before post moves to unaswered section?" with the options 24. 48, 72, 96 and 120 hours.

    Also, it would be good with some check pos one can check during posting "Don't auto-bump" (or something like that (that makes it look like it's not recomended to check it)).
