Before we begin, I'd like to say I've seen this meta question: - "Unanswered" questions not showing up in that list because of a single upvote - My question is related but different.
I've been wondering for a while now why my question on main - Recognize Firefly-esque sci-fi scenario with minimalist narrative d6 system? - isn't showing up in Unanswered questions.
From my reading of the above meta question it should be, as the sole answer has 5 downvotes at the moment, and no upvotes.
In a moment of paranoia I deleted my comment on the answer, as I wondered if a comment automatically showed some sort of condoning of the answer on my part, but it still hasn't turned up in Unanswered Questions. I also tried flagging the answer for deletion, but no joy.
I've also tried the different filters, ie "newest" and "no answer", but no show.
Why is my question not showing in Unanswered Questions? Is something broken? Or have the rules changed about answers needing to be upvoted to count as answers? Or something else?
Obviously I'd like my answer to stay visible in Unanswered Questions so someone can, um, answer it someday.
