When I view the unanswered DIY questions and click on them to see if I can answer them, I found the first have answers. None were accepted, but still—doesn't "unanswered questions" mean zero answers? Further down the list is a few with zero answers.

It acts like the list of questions with no accepted answer.

Also, do comments to the OP affect the selection of questions?

"No answers" in Stack Exchange terms means no upvoted answers. The fact that the existing answers haven't been upvoted means that no one else thinks that they are good answers so the system encourages other people to try to provide a better one.

  • Ah! Thanks. That does explain it.
