We're answering nearly 90% of the Questions here!


I got bored, so I took a little time to do some maths and discovered that we're good! LQ so far has (at the time of looking) around 33k questions. Only 3.3k of those have gone unanswered! Here's my breakdown (in descending order of percentage, to 1dp):
Code:
Linux - Software		=    0 /  5151	= 100.0
Linux - Distros - Conectiva	=    0 /     9	= 100.0
Linux - Distros - Slack		=   27 /   661	=  95.9
Linux - Distros			=   95 /  1875	=  95.0
Linux - Distros - LFS		=   11 /   208	=  94.7
BSD				=   10 /   124	=  91.9
Linux - Newbie			=  492 /  5452	=  91.0
General				=  111 /  1037	=  89.3
Linux - Security		=  120 /  1104	=  89.1
Linux - General			= 1180 /  9367	=  87.4
Linux - Hardware		=  169 /  1283	=  86.8
Programming			=  219 /  1334	=  83.6
Linux - Networking		=  843 /  4947	=  83.0
Web Q+Sugs			=   66 /   346	=  80.7
Totals:				= 3343 / 32898	=  89.8
As you can see, we're damn good!

This post, as you may have noticed, is really quite useless except as a morale booster!

Keep up the good work everybody!

can't you just chalk those up as the repeat and re-repeat questions, posts, etc? or do you have to prove that they are unique unanswered questions?

Haven't gone intro that much detail... I just checked the number of threads against those with at least 1 reply. And, Chris, I do try and answer as many of those unanswered as possible, when I can . And God this is difficult to type when I'm pissed...!

there's a closed thread, someone double-posted about connection sharing... the one reply was a reprimand, the other thread he started got no reply. so unless he left with his tail firmly set between his legs, he found his answer in another thread... yea, that's probably it (the overly optimistic one)

Neo, sorry about that... whan I said 'pissed' I should have said 'drunk'. I know Chris well enough to understand his humour and temperament. And, yeah, it's quite a good exercise when you're bored... didn't give the brain much exercise, but then I didn't really want to look through all those (33k - 3.3k) questions to find out which ones had been answered properly, i.e. not had one reply saying 'I'm closing this'.

Don't forget us rednecks down here. Yeah the very first reply I read from acid I was like huh? WTF? then as I continued on I learned his way & don't take offense to it anymore. Oh yeah about the language thing then I assume that when you said "pissed" across the pond that means drunk well over here "pissed" means mad, ready to fight. See I learned something else from this board this truly a great site to be a member of.

Thanks to all, keep up the good work.
