I gave it a go, but I'm rather too new to do this. I found that there were a number of suggestions for unanswered threads, a few requests for a place in GeekU, a number of Topic Missed threads, and a number of "site isn't working" threads. I didn't want to dig too far back in case the moderator/Administrator council has decided that the response given is no longer valid. For example there were a few old threads asking for a report button on each post (???).
As a start I'll suggest these three, but I do think I'm the wrong person for the task and am really not very happy with it:Common Threads
These are some of the more common threads that are started in this suggestions forum. To save you time we've brought them together so that you can see our response and the reason for it if you were going to say the same thing. If your question is not here please still use the search function to see whether someone else might have had the same idea. If not, or if the thread in question is unresolved or badly outdated, we would love your thoughts on how to improve our site.Search for Unanswered Threads
We realize that this sounds like a very useful feature, allowing helpers to quickly identify threads that have not yet received any replies and hopefully therefore remedy the situation.
Unfortunately the forum software that runs GTG does not support this feature, and every site-specific extension that we code is another difficulty when we need to update the sit and another place for bugs and crashes to emerge. Some other sites, perhaps on different software, have implemented this feature. But at present we judge that it would cause more trouble than benefit. Should the forum software change to allow this feature we will reconsider.
Meanwhile it is possible to sort the threads in ascending order of replies. We find that this workaround is useful for finding those who have been neglected within your subforum of expertise. It performs the same job almost as well and without any custom software threatening to break the site. Simply click "click here to show filter options" at the bottom of the forum and choose Sort by Order: replies and Sort Direction A-ZSite not working
need to know when something is going wrong with this site. However before asking for a site-wide fix please do verify that the issue is not in fact on your own machine.

This is not the forum for pointing out that you haven't been replied to.
If you have posted a malware removal topic and it has been 3 days without response, the waiting room
is the place to put your reminder.
If you are asking in any of the other forums and feel that your question has been missed, you could always reply to it yourself with a polite "I still can't work this out". "I'm still waiting" is good, providing any missing details and your own attempted fixes is much better.
While we do our best to help everyone who comes, try to remember that we are all volunteers and taking what time we can afford out of our own busy lives to help you.
