your 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.
