More of a discussion than anything, but we've got 15 unanswered questions, and I know as a forum site type user, the biggest turn off is when you post a question and get nothing in return.

Any suggestions for how we can give these a boost? Perhaps tweet them out once a day or something? I try to answer one from this list each day, but some of them I have no idea about, sadly.

    I did what I could, which wasn't a lot but did include letting bicycles.SE know about our old keirin question. Aug 25, 2011 at 20:26

  • It seems to work, I also just visited the unanswered tab, and we have only 7 questions unanswered! Nice work! Sep 15, 2011 at 20:30

Apart from periodic visits to the 'unanswered' tab, the best way to get a question answered is to share it!

enter image description here

Use those social bookmark tools and seek out others in Facebook, email, or Tweet them as a challenge to get the question answered. Everyone likes a challenge and people really love to show off on occasion.

To repeat what was mentioned by another but was subsequently deleted (by that other) put a bounty on them. That is, if they deserve a bounty.
