Why no implement them in periods defined by the user which will contain links to unanswered posts?

Linuxforums does this I think it's effective.

I'm not quite sure what you're referring to, is it something you think we should add to the forums or something related to GWN/GMN?

No no, this's specific to the forum, basically daily or weekly mails notifying about various topics popping up (like unanswered tops or hot topics or just random ones etc...).

Why would you want to add an extra burden when a quick look at the forum would answer everyone of your needs. I can view unanswered posts, glance at an icon to see what is hot at the moment, and see how many responses a particular post is getting. I don't see the need for another email in my box.

I think he means a digest, like on mailing lists.

Yeah, a digest.

I can browse the forums as an alternative, but I'm too lazy to do that. You actually have to do an effort, whereas with a digest effort is only solving the issue.
