- Positively scored.
- Completely unanswered. Downvoted and zero-score unaccepted answers do count, unlike the "unanswered" tab.
- Not (currently) closed.
- Most recently active (asked, edited) three or more months ago. Comments don't count.
At the time of writing (2017-10-08 in America/Los_Angeles, the next day in UTC) there are 1,274 results. If we remove the date restriction, we get 1,501 results, which means that almost 85% of all unanswered, open, upvoted story ID questions haven't been touched in three months. While old story ID questions do get answers from time to time, I think it's spectacularly unlikely that we can clear this backlog faster than it is accumulating (which was quite fast the last time we discussed this), so that percentage is likely to rise over time.
- Is this the right question to ask of the data? In other words, should we care about the boldfaced statement above?
- If so, what should we do about it?
