The forum will be down for scheduled maintenance on Saturday, March 4 beginning at 10am EST. Actual downtime is unknown but may be several hours.

If someone posted an answer to my question which I don't think helpfull, I would like to say: "That question is still unanwered", so that it will be displayed when clicking the unanswered button. Is that possible?

FYI it was me who zapped the tags, for the time being I believe that general classification tags will be more useful than "search keyword" tags... since there are multiple search facilities that do a great job.

The "Unanswered" button lists questions that have no upvoted answers. If you downvote the answer, it will still show up there. Of course if someone else upvotes it, there's nothing you can do. If, when you downvote, you also add a comment as to why it is unsufficient, that may prevent others from upvoting the answer.

IMHO that's precise and complete. Thanks!

It took more than a minute to realize that for downvoting (even for answers to my own question) I need higher reputation. So there's work to be done ...

Looks like you won the SQLA Lottery!

I think you can use votes (up and down) and comments.

+1 for comments. It's a great way to get more information from the person who posted since they'll get a response notification.
