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?

    @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)

    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.

    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 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 :)

    Can we repeat this event for 2016?

  • What about the questions with answers but unvoted?

  • @Karlson that's the NoVotes column.

    Commented Aug 26, 2015 at 3:15
  • That has everything. Answers with no votes and no answers. All I am looking for is answers with no votes.

  • @Karlson ah. I don't know how to separate those out. I guess it'd be the difference - so today, 164-158 =8.
