Unhappy some threads are become unnoticed because of large number of continious threads


after posting a new thread , with in 5 minutes this new post will be in bottom of the page , due to this many queries has left un noticed.

But i have seen in some forums , an additional feature like "view unanswerd questions" something like that..

i hope moderators will understand my query

Yes, that's exactly it: just your thought, and not reality. The query is easily accessable as "Zero Reply Threads" from the right hand navigation pane and people do use it. If OTOH you're getting frustrated your OP hasn't had any responses in under 24 hours then it's a patience thing. Even then LQ is volunteer- and supply-driven: members answer where they can and when they see fit.

In what forum are you seeing threads pushed to the second page after 5 minutes? The *busiest* forums show about a full days worth of threads in the default view. Even the "View New Posts" search shows over an hour in most cases.

Even if after a couple of hours it reaches the bottom of the page or makes the third page I still look at all the thread titles from my last visit. I do not answer any of the threads that I do not feel I can contribute to the solution of the problem. The way this is setup is as fair as any system I have seen, every thread gets equal exposure and even the zero replies are bumped once.

@ deepak_cucek :

One problem with your unanswered thread ( 10 hours ago )
is that you answered it yourself.

That is certainly not a good idea :
→ → will take the thread out from "Zero replies".
If you had further comments, the "Edit" button
should be used.

Just like I thought. His "any suggestions..." reply clearly shows it's a patience issue. So after not crossposting he just has one more thing to learn.

While I've answered the thread in question, keep in mind that you bumped your own thread (which as noted takes it out of the 0 reply list *and* stops the better timed auto-bump from happening) after 2 hours in what is the middle of the night for a good portion of the LQ members.
