    $\begingroup$ Presumably this will be moved to meta. I'll note that currently for me that link includes a question with an accepted answer, even. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Why in unanswered questions there are answered questions? - To shock and confuse unsuspecting users. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ No, here is an example of a bad UI. The title says "Unanswered questions". Why would anybody expect users to read the sidebar, if they already have the info (but wrong info) in the title? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ This is the only page I remember that its title in the sidebar. Maybe you should put it in the footer? And than say "well, everything is written in the footer, can't you see it, it is even in bold, and red, for you stupid guys that do not expect title in the footer"? lol $\endgroup$

As far as I know, a question appears in the "unanswered" queue when it has no answers, or if when it has answers, none of them has a positive score and none is accepted.

(For future reference: this kind of question is better received in meta.)

    $\begingroup$ I'm not 100% sure, but I think that the question needs a non-negative score as well. $\endgroup$
