"Send periodic reminders to accept the best answer" is enabled in https://ask.fedoraproject.org/settings/EMAIL/ but I don't think the corresponding management commands are being run at all. This needs to be enabled.
send_accept_answer_reminders must be run as a cron job.
The commit 004cddd should probably get the cron job working for the staging instance. Please enable reminders from the staging instance from the django administrative interface. If it's all good, I'll apply the cron to the production instance too.
The setting is set in staging. ;)
Ping me at some point and I will make sure your account is an admin so you can adjust/view those settings as well.
I've just modified the cron to run on a daily basis for staging. We might have to increase activity on the staging instance to actually get it to send out reminders. Please feel free to randomly open and answer questions ;)
Applied to production. Closing.
