I am talking about the new feature where we can click on "unanswered questions" to view just those questions that have note been answered yet.
oh, forgot about it, yeah it would be interesting to know it because question with answer, no answers, medals no medals are shown
yes - that is why I wanted to know what criteria is being used.
or does it currently have a bug?
It should only be questions that have no medals. If you're seeing questions with medals in the unanswered tab, that means something's wrong heh.
it's because of another bug, all red things is shown in unanswered questions, but as it was mentioned earlier some questions are red even with medals
Aha. Indeed. We'll look at it and see what's up, thanks.
ok - thanks for acknowledging this.
That is not a good criteria to determine if a question is "answered" or not. There are many times I get medals for attempting to teach and I give for the same reason. The question is not answered yet in this case.
It's not a criteria so much as a heuristic. We're trying to get a decent idea of whether a question has been answered while not producing too many false negatives (i.e., cases where the original poster never marked something as answered).
Moreover, on a site like this, we call it answered, but really it's more useful to know if there is a person present who will likely end up giving an answer, which if you're interacting and get a medal is likely (though not guaranteed!) to be the case. We intend to do some random sampling on our database to see how accurate the heuristic is.
