We currently have over 3500 unanswered questions on Security.SE.

Whether or not you are after some hats for Winterbash, or just want to find some posts you could provide answers to and gain rep, please go and have a look at them. There are bound to be some in there in your field of expertise, or that you can research.

I'd be delighted if we could get it down to 2000 before the end of Winterbash - even if it means it's not just Anders and forest ahead of me on the Security Winterbash leaderboard!

    So basically, start upvoting answers? – schroeder Dec 21 '17 at 20:22

    well - if there are good answers that are not yet upvoted, yes :-) – Rory Alsop Dec 21 '17 at 21:43

    I think we're losing ground instead - answerers are off with family, but the askers are still here! – Xiong Chiamiov Dec 26 '17 at 18:56

    @Xiong - the numbers are actually coming down a wee bit, so the community is doing well despite many being away for holidays. – Rory Alsop Dec 27 '17 at 10:17

    While I encourage positive action, this should not be used as an excuse to close questions just because they are difficult to answer. – paj28 Dec 27 '17 at 11:43

    Hats are gone, and so are 500 unanswered questions. Nice! – Anders Jan 4 '18 at 10:36

Well - the results are in.

We answered or closed around 500 unanswered questions...

And we still have around 3500 unanswered questions :-)

SO this shows that as a community, even over the Christmas break, we can still find old or unloved questions and add an answer, or upvote an existing answer, or in many cases improve an existing answer so it gets upvotes.

Nice work to all who helped.

  • When I go to the unanswered page it says 2,948 question to the right, not 3 500. Anyway, I agree, good job! – Anders Jan 10 '18 at 13:23
  • Interesting - there must be a caching issue. I still see just over 3500. I like your number better. – Rory Alsop Jan 10 '18 at 13:35
