Similar to Drupal Answers, I'm creating nodes that are questions. Once I create a question node, I want to have it flagged as 'unanswered' if a user doesn't flag it as 'answered' within 10 days. I have Flags module setup so I can click 'answer/un-answer this question' on the node itself and Views displays the unanswered questions. I'm thinking that the Rules module will be of assistance here, but I do not see a way to start a timer (for lack of better words) in Rules once a node has been created.

Thank you.

You'll need to enable Rules Scheduler, which is a sub-module included as part of the Rules module.

You can watch a screencast on how to use Rules Scheduler from Node One here.
