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

I don't think Stack Overflow can handle as many questions as pop up per second. Before I started using Stack Overflow, if I asked one question there were many people answering for me and I could choose the best answer. But now some questions can't even get 10 views or 20 views.

What needs to be done to get more attention for a question and to get an answer?

Ask a good question with a good title. – Kevin Jun 15 '12 at 12:24
Still doing better than most Q&A sites with answer rates so bad they don't publish them – Ben Brocka Jun 15 '12 at 12:46
I think the active members, many of them active since the very beginning, got fed up with trivial request for help and/or low quality question so they are now more picky. If in the past they used to check every question and give it a chance now they first look in the title and tags and if there's good chance of low quality or irrelevant stuff they won't even read the question. Nothing official, this is just my feeling which explains the situation you describe. – Shadow Wizard Jun 15 '12 at 14:03
@ShaDowWizArd: I agree. Also, because of the sheer number of questions on Stack Overflow, I just look at the Top Questions now. The last time I tried to look at the newest questions, more than 15 newer questions would be asked in the time it would take me to read 15 questions. – Gilbert Le Blanc Jun 15 '12 at 16:30
