Very very cool. Better than watching TV, that's for sure.

It would be more effective to have them at least once a month. If I post a thread and it does not receive an answer within a week I give up with the problem and move on or find a work around. It would be nice to know how many of the zero reply posts that are a month or so old that the OP responds to.

August would be a great month because it doesnt have any holidays at all, should work towards doing it every quarter which would be 4 times a year

I don't think doing it every month would work well, it's too often. Maybe every 2-3 months.

I'd agree that every month is probably too often. I'd say it's down to either bi-monthly (Feb/Apr/June/Aug/Oct/Dec) or quarterly (Jan/Apr/July/Oct).

Quarterly would be a good way to start

Update: Moving forward we'll be doing these quarterly (so mid-Jan/Apr/July/Oct). Thanks for the feedback. Additional suggestions are welcome.

Not strictly zero reply drive related, but zero reply related.

Can you automatically exclude zero reply posts from the zero replies list, where the OP has marked it as solved before anybody else has posted ?

(they usually don't post what they did, or just edit their own post to add "never mind")

There seem to be quite a few of those looking back through the pages.

Similarly, the LQ bot posts show up in zero replies as do member introductions. I'm sure they all deserve a response but they aren't actually people looking for answers, which I presume is what we are trying to service with the zero reply list.

Thanks.
