I've been seeing this a lot lately: If a topic is not easily answered or is not part of a popular technology, it slides on down the list and will not be posted on again just within a day (sometimes the same day?). An example would be my latest started thread: http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/show...sign-questions. I know there's plenty of people out there that can throw their two cents in on this topic, but it has already become buried and won't see anymore attention than it has already received, which did not cover everything.

I suggest either breaking PHP forum down in to further sub categories, or perhaps some sort of new view that would easily show topics that still need attention (allow the poster to mark answered or something)
