in thread How to know whether question in SOPW is entirely answered or not?

yes, your suggested node Reposting Questions? was really good reading to my question, but there's still some drawbacks -- users still must count on calculating a probability of an answer (not holidays, not weekends, just bad current carma on perlmonks due to a person that irritated anyone, like me now).
I think this should be improved somehow, but have no 100% solution.

reposting questions, even with pointing to a past questions with many politeness, could not work forever, you'll make readers angry after 3rd post.

And no, I'm not complaining about questions that could not be easily answered. I think there's distionction between "zombie" questions and "dead" questions, which should not be answered due to some reasons.

    I think that after several unanswered tries, you probably won't get an answer. Either because it's out of most monks' problem domains, it's not interesting to most monks, or they don't feel the question worthy in the first place.

    That's been my experience the few times I've run into it. Any system would require more action from posters too. I don't think most will do it so it becomes a useless metric.

    Just my 2 cents.
