Rethink/revamp Featured Questions on home page

Featuring unanswered questions on the home page may be a sincere attempt at transparency, also intended to build the nanoHUB economy; however, featuring questions that are not answered (especially after a good lapse of time is posted) merely raises a concern whether nanoHUB & its community _really_ answers questions that are submitted by users… AND whether that economy of points-for-answers is at all robust.

If there is a great question, and it is sufficiently answered by someone, by all means feature those questions on the home page for everyone’s benefit, and then create some mechanism for displaying unanswered questions in a centralized space, perhaps?? The home page could then advertise this alternate space to users who DO utilize the nanopoints system and they could go to such a space, scan the list of unanswered questions, and zing off a few answers to earn a few points…

In my view, unanswered questions (especially old ones) serve to question the veracity of the nanoHUB economy, especially with new users who don’t understand the system yet.
