Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This is my first question on SO: Change document flow on page break to fill space. It's here for a week now and has received only small attention and one downvote. Is there something I can do to improve the question?

I have taken decent time to search for answer by myself, and to explain it the best I could. I've also read tons of "how to ask properly on SO"-related stuff before posting the question and double-checked all tags to be appropriate.

Voter didn't leave any comment and I can't see anything in question that deserved downvoting, so I have no idea what to do now.

Some people use downvotes and NARQ close votes to mean "I don't know". Have an upvote, even though it probably doesn't imply that I know. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Jun 4 '12 at 11:03
Don't worry about a single vote, up or down. For all you know it's someone voting without even reading the question, in a run for Electorate. – Yannis Jun 4 '12 at 11:03
By the way, welcome to the site! Sorry you had a less-than-stellar experience with your first question, because personally I feel it was well-asked, just possibly a little obscure :/ – BoltClock's a Unicorn Jun 4 '12 at 11:05
Thanks for your comments! I am aware that asking if something is possible but not (yet) necessarily usable might seem a little "obscure". I'm doing pre-research for my master's thesis, thus I'm focused on technical feasibility based on specifications more than on momentary usability in browsers, which is not critical. – FurloSK Jun 4 '12 at 11:55

There's no problem with your question.

It may be a topic not very understood by a large group of users, but help will arrive.

You need to realize that certain questions, depending on the time of the day that you've posted them, may leave the interesting tab fast enough (front page), thus losing the users attention.

If it is a problem to each you haven't been able to solve yet, you can edit your question to alter some contents or trying to rephrase it, that will bump it to the front page.

In the future, with more reputation, you can even start a bounty, to catch the users interest, thus collecting the answers you seek.
