What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

I'm the author of an open source project which I would like to support over SO. There are no questions about my project yet, but I would like to be informed if one appears. Is that somehow possible? Can I create the tag and monitor it?

I tried posting some silly question, but it was very soon downvoted and removed. What should I do?

When you say support do you mean using SO as your bug tracker? –  random Aug 5 '11 at 21:35
    
Not really, I would use SO to explain how to do something to users who get stuck. –  Marko Aug 5 '11 at 21:37

That's the problem.

Instead, post a real question, the way a user would ask it, and then provide a good answer. Answering your own questions is allowed and encouraged, as long as you do both parts well.

If you already have a support forum or mailing list, perhaps you can find a question there to clean up and use here.
