Yesterday I thought my question was answered, but it wasn't. Can I reopen my question so it can get more attention?

It isn't closed. What is the problem? Are you asking to have it bumped? –  slugster Dec 19 '11 at 7:01
    
Yes please bump it –  Crazy_Bash Dec 19 '11 at 7:02

Ummm... no.... that isn't the way things are supposed to work... You left a message on the answer only 17 minutes ago, you need to give people time to respond. –  slugster Dec 19 '11 at 7:05
    
If you edit the question, it jumps to the top again. –  luser droog Dec 19 '11 at 7:11

@Crazy_Bash: edit; and while you are at it, you may want to actually improve the OP so you will also improve the chances of more people responding better. –  Kris Dec 19 '11 at 7:34
    
Thanks for the quick reply. I'll do my best –  Crazy_Bash Dec 19 '11 at 7:47

Your question is not "closed" after any amount of time (unless excplicitely closed by voting / mod intervention). If you don't get an answer that you are satisfied with in a resonable amount of time (this varies depending on the question, but a day or so is probably reasonable) then editing with updates on your own personal progrees of working towards a solution is the best option.

From the FAQ:

First, make sure you’ve asked a good question. To get better answers, you may need to put additional effort into your question. Edit your question to provide status and progress updates. Document your own continued efforts to answer your question. This will naturally bump your question and get more people interested in it.
