Some might noticed that I've posted "blanket" questions to some older questions that have 1 or more answers, but unaccepted. This is partially a reminder to answer unaccepted questions if there is a valid answer (or update the question with more refined question(s)). But, I'd also like to brainstorm a couple of ways to appropriately ask to answer a question. I've got two that I've used so far today, but what are some that you all have used in the past?
1. Question has more than one answer, with one particularly well written answer
I noticed that your question has a few answers available and has been open for a while, just curious if any of the available answers was able to help. If not, then what questions do you still have?
2. Question has 1 or more answer, with no single answer that stands out as the "correct" answer
I noticed that your question has not had much activity lately, are you still looking for an answer to this question? How might we be able to close some gaps?
The reason I am bringing this up is to try and increase our "answer accepted" percentage. Currently (07/03/2016) there are 396 questions and using
is:question hasaccepted:no closed:no there are 162 questions unaccepted, of which only 11 do not have answers. So, basic math tells us that roughly 40% of our questions are unaccpted. According to our Area51 page, we only have 43 users with reputaion higher than 200, we need 107 more users out of the 2,353 users total to reach this goal. Some, if not most of these users currently have a reputation higher than 100 (partially due to the at least 300 reputation on another SE site).
