At time of writing (August 18, 2015) we have:

I'd like to track this with the goal of getting the answer rate up to 100% (with rounding, at least), and our rank site-wide at 1st for answering, and as such will occasionally update below with updated stats. Feel free to do this as well.

  • In this one, the answer is you cannot compare things that do not exist, please read travel.stackexchange.com/questions/49527/… And yet there's upvotes on the question. Now what? – Gayot Fow Aug 24 '15 at 12:04

    @GayotFow write an answer about how it doesn't exist, simple. We've done it for other questions (eg can you go as a tourist to the moon) – Mark Mayo Supports Monica Aug 24 '15 at 12:27

    Absolutely, questions are legitimate even if there is no answer because there is no way for for the asker to know this in advance. It depends on the way the question is worded though, For example: Can I drive from Halifax to Greenland? vs How long does it take to drive from Halifax to Greenland?. The first question can be answered with a no, the other is impossible. – Itai Aug 29 '15 at 16:28

    As usual, I love the spirit behind this effort. Keep in mind though, an answered rate of 98% is... kinda great! As pointed out elsewhere, you're always going to get a few oddball questions that are valid but just really difficult to answer well or not great and yet not quite delete-worthy either. – Pops Aug 31 '15 at 20:59
  • @Pops indeed, and we favour accuracy in answers over just answering. We'd been on top of questions with only about 40 unanswered back in April and it slipped out to 250+, so this is just an effort to reign that back in - it was annoying to see the easy ones we'd missed, and dupes and so on. But certainly we still have questions open since before then that we haven't been able to answer, because they're hard or rare :) – Mark Mayo Supports Monica Aug 31 '15 at 23:56

    Can we repeat this event for 2016? – JonathanReez Supports Monica Jun 12 '16 at 10:26
  • @JonathanReez been thinking we should, but waiting for the June event to finish first :) – Mark Mayo Supports Monica Jun 23 '16 at 6:07
