Getting their question answered - quickly and completely - is the #1 expectation of our users. When a thread remains unanswered, it means that we haven't delivered on that expectation. In 2012, we want to rectify that. Our new year resolution is to reduce unanswered threads in our forum to zero. Hence, we are kick starting the new year with a grand… Answering Marathon (Part 1) What is Answering Marathon?
