Given fruitfull discussion at How to know whether question in SOPW is entirely answered or not? I thought a bit and decided to implement a simple but hopefully helpful thing to start solving a problem in question.
I'm going to design a simple HTML page on this site that will contain unanswered (or partially answered) questions, where author of a question still wants to hear some more information.
I think of design of this as of a page where whoever wants will place a reference to a node with unsolved question and yet a percentage number assotiated to this, describing completeness of a current coverage of answers.
I'll place reference to that page in my signature to let askers know about such possibility, which slightly increases a probability of a question to be answered in more detail (or at all).
What drawbacks are here? I see following:
Let's consider other side. What benefits are there? Well, in my
opinion, they are following:
Okay, there were my initial thoughts, and here follows a question.
Am I able to develop my own page here just for reference?
What power I need to gain?
