It seems like the <>Community bot bumps old unanswered questions but lately ( today ) it seems like all the questions that have been bumped have legitimate answers but OP just hasn't come back and checkmarked them. Is there a way to keep this from happening, like force marking as answered or something?

Examples of Community Bumped Topics today that clearly have an answer.

  1. Create a custom taxonomy template that loops through child categories in term order?
  2. Images not showing after moving site (but path id OK)
  3. How to add menu support to a theme?
  4. Getting Details Of Uploaded Image
  5. Is_search not working on search results page

These are just the ones currently on the frontpage, there were more earlier that have faded off.

The point is very simple when you compare that to the "unanswered questions" queue

Unanswered is everything that has no answer(s) [with upvotes]

Just go and upvote the answer(s) if you think know those are correct and the question will vanish from the "unanswered" queue and count as "answered".

The criteria are:

Note that the posts eligible for bumping have gone at least 30 days with no activity, have at least one answer scoring 0 and none scoring more than that, and no accepted answer (also, they can't be locked or closed).


So the answer is — upvote good answers! :) Upvoted answer makes question "answered" in stack's terminology, even in lack of accepted answer.
