in reply to How do you find nodes that need your answer most?

I can sympathize with your concerns, but the old saying goes, "If it works, don't fix it". We don't have any red flags, but we do have other ways of getting attention. First, there is the chatterbox, which could get you an answer in minutes if you're lucky. In the case where you post a question to SoPW and don't get a satisfactory question, you can update your original post calling attention to it; or you could take a good hard look at your question to see whether you have asked it in a useful way. The problem may not be lazy monks, but rather a poorly-asked question.

It seems to me that Newest Nodes already does most of the things your red flag does. By using it you can see how many replies have been made to a post, and decide whether you want to take a close look. It doesn't help with old nodes, but those should probably be reworked and reposted.

Discipulus without Corion and with choroba in another timezone the monastery was silent.. I was silbing alone in the cloister
[choroba]: Yes, I feel alone in the cyberspace...
[choroba]: Not many occasions to talk to my wife, either :-(
Discipulus s/silbing/whistle/ dunno from where this word was in my mind..
[Discipulus]: lost in time in space and in the meaning (rocky horror picture show)
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah, a short vacation on the Canary islands (Lanzarote). Always great to be in the warmth and sun, from a cold and rainy February here ;)
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah, you have to find a time for the regular skype (or whatever) meetup, I imagine that's hard
