What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

Unfortunately, I had a late-night doubt recently, which meant (that I realized later on) I wouldn't probably get many replies (this was the question). I got just one reply, but I need more input from the experienced community of sysadmins at ServerFault.

I do not have enough rep. to offer a bounty and feature the question. What should I do under circumstances like this? Asking the same question again, but in different tone, is one. But is it considered spamming? Please advise.

EDIT: Thanks for the quick answers. I normally edit my questions many times for the sake of clarity, but I never realized that I was actually bumping them. LOL!

You can bump your question back up the list by editing the question text to improve the question.

But don't just add nonsense like "any answers yet?" –  Michael Petrotta Aug 12 '11 at 15:32
    
@Michael Petrotta right! noted. –  its_me Aug 12 '11 at 15:33

Definitely not ask the question again.

Instead, modify your question. This serves two purposes:

  • You can add extra clarification about what is being asked, possibly as results of previous answers and comments, and
  • It bumps the question in the recently active list to the top so it gets new attraction for answering.
