When I look at the related questions list and see a zero, it always makes me think there are no answers, then when I go to answer it, I discover that it has already been answered. Therefore, I am requesting that the answer number is displayed as well as the vote number? EDIT: Also put in marks (e.g. duplicate or closed) as I cannot see if the question can actually be answered. Maybe even the date if possible?enter image description here

    The numbers you have circled are the score of the question, not the number of answers. A green box means an answer was accepted by the asker. – Dallium Apr 12 '16 at 5:42
  • @Dallium Yes, but I am requesting that there would be some other indication that a question has been answered for questions that do not have that green box, e.g. something like a little [a] to show that the question already has an answer or [una] for questions with no answer. – Flan Apr 12 '16 at 7:18
  • What actual benefit does this provide? – user106385 Apr 13 '16 at 0:01

I don't think that would benefit anyone.

What you are seeing is a list of related questions. Green squares highlight an accepted answer, and the number shows the question score (i.e. assume high scoring questions more useful/researched than others).

Adding your proposed changes would:

  • Require all stackexchange sites to also use the changes (for consistency)
  • Alternatively, be different from all other stackexchange sites in its implementation
  • Deviate from the real purpose of that list (i.e. it is a quick list of related questions to the question you have displayed on the left)
  • More information needs more space (i.e. adds clutter)

You can see all the information you propose via:


You can filter the results (e.g. only show questions for a given game, only show unanswered questions etc).
