Workflow for Answering Old, Unanswered Questions

While every expert is of course welcome to workout their own methods for answering questions, here's the workflow we recommend:

  1. Start with the very oldest unanswered questions by clicking on the final/oldest page in the pagination links at the bottom of http://namethatmovie.org/unanswered and then working your way backwards, bottom to top through the questions.
  2. Skim the question headers for info that you might feel you know the answer to. Unfortunately, some headers are vague or non-descriptive.
  3. Either way, to hold your place, open question links in a new window by right-clicking on them and clicking on "Open Link in New Window" (or similar) from the context menu that should have just popped up.

Thank you.

Hey guys, is there a way we could add a button to see all of a person's comments as a selection from their profile? I realize that searching by my name was actually not showing me all the one's I needed to clean up, and I thought this might be a good way to do it. Thanks guys. Love this place so much.

The activity stream (example: http://namethatmovie.org/user/NameThatMovie/activity) is the best option at this time.
"Unfortunately, some headers are vague or non-descriptive."

Yes, it's unfortunate when there is little, or no, description in the header. I try to help when I can, but I confess I do not click on those types. :(
Hello all, has anyone gone through all of the no answer selected questions to see how many are stated to be the wrong answer? It might be a good idea to make a list of those in experts hq.

I had gone through most of the 0 answer questions, awhile ago, and answered all I knew. Now, as I get to them, I go through them to see any questions with obscure topics so I can attempt to search them out. The more basic plot the movie has, the harder it is to know if you find it, without the op's help. Being there are so many questions, if you all see any with obscure stuff, or off the wall details, I can take a shot at them, if you want me to. If it is ok with NTM, I can make an experts hq thread with my name, to put them in, so I know what to look at. We maybe able to do that for any member that wants to know of questions that could be in their domain, that we could list for them, as we see them in the old/new stuff. Thanks all.

Interesting idea.

Sort of a "Tough Cookies" thread, maybe listing the hardest questions that until now are seemingly impossible to answer.

Go for it. :)
