You bring up some good points. We need more people going through the old questions/unanswered questions list and commenting, upvoting, and flagging, trying to get people to mark answers and hopefully get them more involved. Otherwise, I'm afraid that this site will never graduate or even might be shut down. I couldn't agree more with this. Although I don'...

Jivings has mentioned expanding the close reasons, but our major problem with closing questions is we often don't seem to have enough regulars to get them closed. Very likely there are oodles of old unanswered/unchecked questions that should have been closed but never were. It would be a good idea to start a meta question containing a list of these ...
