New state for "abandoned" threads ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm sometimes a bit annoyed when looking at "unanswered" threads to see some of them being rather "abandoned" i.e. for example the OP never replied with some more needed details leaving the thread in a state where it won't be ever solved. Proposing a response as the answer would make them also appear with the corresponding filter while they don't provide any value to those looking at them.

    I wonder if those threads shouldn't be marked with an additional state such as "Abandoned" or "Needs more info" (and possibly later be deleted) as they don't offer any value for present and future users. It would allow to ignore those useless threads...

    Please always mark whatever response solved your issue so that the thread is properly marked as "Answered".
