I think Snippets and Tutorials should be excluded from 'Unanswered', or a new section should be created called 'Open Questions' that doesn't include snippets and tutorials. Most of the snippets/tutorials don't receive an answer for a long time and they cloud the view when looking for a quick question to answer/solve.

..just my two cents. :)

Thanks for the feedback. I've gone ahead and made the adjustment a little bit ago.

'Tutorials' and 'Snippets' came later right? So 'Unanswered' used to be exactly what I am talking about. 'Unanswered' does exactly what it's supposed to do and shows all unanswered posts, so with the new additions maybe it's time for a new kind of 'Unanswered'?

It is a great suggestion. Snippets and tutorials can be kept separate and do not need to be included in the "unanswered" section.

That's what I like about this site. It's just a real person (people?) hacking on things to produce something nice and helpful.

You're welcome!! :)

If I browse web dev (or php) - unanswered, I can still see rubberman's tutorial (which was just added).

In addition, it would be nice to see the unanswered solved threads removed too. But that's probably just me.

I second removing 'Unanswered Solved'. I think people post a question and then answer it by their self right away. I'm glad the post is available to the community, but maybe not in 'Unanswered'.

I can't duplicate this as the tutorial already has 6 replies.

I think self-answered questions are still solved :) I like to follow up with something like 'Mind telling us what you did so it can help others?'

OK bug fixed. I had fixed the Unanswered tab on the homepage and the Unanswered link within the bottom toolbar, but not for when in a specific forum.
