I noticed that we have quite a few abandoned questions. Just go to the end of https://tor.stackexchange.com/unanswered/tagged/?tab=newest and you'll find questions where user input is needed/was requested, but nobody ever answered. As suggested earlier I'm going through those questions and will close them as "unclear what you're asking" and leave the following comment (The word "edit" contains a link to the edit function):

This question seems abandoned, thus I'll close it. If you have further information, please edit the question and it can be reopened.

However I found some questions where someone could provide an answer. They contain enough information, but nobody cared to give an answer so far. I'll try to insert some of them into Tor Weekly News and hope to attract some people who'll answer the questions.

So if someone wants to help with closing abandoned questions, please go forward.

  • Is this still ongoing, or does it need another push? :) Commented Apr 20, 2016 at 17:42
  • It probably needs another push.

I've wondered what to do with some of those. They crop up in Low Quality Posts occasionally, but possibly not often enough.

I like the idea of highlighting them in the weekly news - should draw some much-needed attention to them!

  • Please edit TWN and insert nice answers or questions which need an answer.
