    Is there something like the "new posts" feature which allows me to see unanswered posts, or is "forum spy" it?

    Edit: I'm refering to threads created by others who require help.

    You mean other than the "New Posts" link right next to Forum Spy?

    Or even better use the Search tab, go to advanced and near the bottom on the left hand side you can set it to look for posts with at most 0 replies...

    The New Posts link will show you threads posted recently, and it would be relatively simply to look for those with no replies.

    The Search method is also good - and you can have it display Threads and for a given date range or particular sub-forums for which you believe yourself to be qualified to help. Somewhat disconcerting is that there are at least 300 threads in the past 7 days with no responses. Not sure how many are actually asking for help, though.

    Yep. this is how to do it, but you need to specify a subforum. Can't do it forum-wide.

    Or after a bit of research and source reading the following link can be used to find posts with no replies


    http://forums.macrumors.com/search.php?do=process&replyless=1&replylimit=0

    full text after the http tag since it might get truncated

    forums.macrumors.com/search.php?do=process&replyless=1&replylimit=0

    Seems to work fine for me with the default of "Search All Open Forums" selected....

    You can if you specify max replies, not "at least".
