Basically I can see the new posts button. . But you click that you get threads with the newest replys on top.. even the ones that have thousands replys.. so popular threads are always seen.and on top.. The unanswered ones get buried. Very quickly. .
So a unanswered button for us app users. Would help alot for those people. .
I can't reply to what I can't see
I understand your point. I'm just saying that it seems like to me that every other forum I use works primarily by people clicking on "new posts". If someone is not getting an answer they usually reply to their own thread to get some attention, but that is usually not necessary because so many people are clicking "new posts" as their primary way of engaging in the site throughout the day randomly, that it gets answered right away. I am not sure why the culture of this site is so different.
If I'm really bored I'll just click the new posts link every few minutes, and even my favorites shortcuts to any forum is the new posts link. It's funny because, for example, currently in the Android app I see that people are clicking 'Subscriptions' from the app menu (be aware this is ignoring any clicks on the web menu, because that's captured by the website analytics) almost ten times more than they are clicking 'New Posts'. And, as mentioned, there actually isn't an easy to find link for new posts in the web menu, so one would think they would be using it even more so.
Anyways, if you are a mod or want to help, you don't need to wait for a new app to get a link to unanswered posts, just make the link I posted earlier a favorite in your browser. I do think it is very important people's questions get answered, otherwise they may not think it worth their time to return (and possibly answer someone else's question).Edited by Toddrick - 11/4/15 at 9:38pm
