I say this because I notice some of these questions are not really answerable at the moment, yet they are worthy of discussion. It seems to me creating a chat room would allow for a more relaxed atmosphere where various "theories" can be pondered upon.
I have no clue what x and y are.
From Casey's answer below, I forked one of the queries to perform this rough draft:
-- Questions with high score and high viewcount yet unanswered -- Unanswered means any question that has not been formally accepted (there could be answers). select top 500 Id as [Post Link], Score, ViewCount from Posts where Score > 10 and ViewCount > 100 and ParentId is null and AcceptedAnswerId is null order by ViewCount desc
There are probably better ways to do this. Let me know what you think.
Updated query with min comments
These parameters show a few potential candidates.
daysold = 30
minscore = -5 (this should be low, right now it does not matter but in the future it may)
mincomments = 3
