I've come across multiple questions that are more than a week old, have answers for them (some are pretty great in my opinion) yet none of them have been accepted and, worse yet. there is no indication in the question about why none of them were.
My question is, what can we do to encourage users to accept an answer to their question or, if there is none of them are acceptable, at least leave a comment saying why? Leaving them like this can only hurt the site, since 1) anyone checking for the answer to that question won't know what the outcome is and 2) new users will get the feeling of "why bother answering questions? they don't accept them anyway".
- Uses for Science! skill mid-session
- It is possible to have one player lose control of their actions (get possessed) and have the other players not know it?
- Does a warlock's curse added on a staggering note count as a "damage roll" for purposes of feats which add to damage?
- How do you handle the use of unrelated skills in the Dresden Files?
- Can Druid in Shifted Form Speak Normal Languages?
- How does one get players to explore more?
I could go on. This is not necessarily a critic on the users that posted these questions - it's easy to forget about a question if you already passed the point when the answer would have been of use for you, but there really should be something we can do about this.
