How do I get attention for my old, unanswered questions?
There was a question with same description asked 8 months ago. It was no longer active. There is no point in asking same question(exact duplicate).
I have read What is the difference between "hot" and "active" questions? It says that active means "with recent activity." I have written a comment on the question; though, it didn't become active. The question becomes active by writing a new answer, editing the question, or any answer for that question.
I found three ways to make question active but I don't see any feasible way:
- Editing the question - I think there is no point in editing question without reason.
- Offering a bounty- I don't want to invest any bounty for that question.
Answering the question, and deleting the answer- there is no point in doing stupid things like this.
- How do I make a question active, so that people will see that question?
- Is there any simple method to make a question active?
