If I may suggest

This is what another site that I belong to uses "Answer", which would remove four letters

I'm actually not entirely sure what that means - as a tag, I'd expect that it meant that there was an answer, but because you're suggesting it I suspect it's asking you to write an answer? I find that a bit confusing.

@TerryNet I'll make a note to look into giving users the option to turn off the new tag when I get back in town next week. (Although, to be honest, you probably should care if a thread is unanswered - I suspect that wasn't exactly what you meant. 😉)

I guess it's bit like saying "Reply" - is there a reply, or please reply? Maybe it's just my brain that immediately chooses the wrong option in that context. 😁

I mostly care what the thread is about (the title) and whether there has been any reply since the last time I visited the forum. And then sometimes I care if the thread is unanswered and glance over at the number of replies for a zero.
