How do I get attention for old, unanswered questions?

I encountered exactly the same problem as described in this question on Meta: Undo the Removal of an Interesting Tag. That question was asked in 2010 and got almost no response.

How could I draw an attention to that problem? I think, asking the same question once again is not a proper way.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

1 Answer 1

The same way as you draw attention to questions on the main site:

  1. Edit. Are you sure there's nothing you can edit? Isn't there any new information you could add which would enhance the request? Adding new supporting information to a feature request may be what it needs to be implemented. It doesn't have to be the question you edit. You can edit an answer too.
  2. Post a bounty. You need at least 75 reputation to post a bounty.
  3. Answer. Do you have a new or improved solution you could offer?

Neither would work. 1. There's nothing to edit, I have exactly the same problem. 2. I don't have enough rep on meta for opening a bounty. 3. How can I answer if it is a feature request? –  Andrey Oct 31 '12 at 10:49

@Andrey - these are the only ways you can do it. Are you sure there's nothing you can edit? Isn't there any new information you could add which would enhance the request? With 145 points you should have enough reputation to start a bounty. –  ChrisF Oct 31 '12 at 10:51
    
Thank you, I thought 145 was not enough. –  Andrey Oct 31 '12 at 10:53
    
I always see you add your answer as CW. Any reason? –  hims056 Oct 31 '12 at 10:55

@hims056 - I have more than enough reputation on MSO to last me a lifetime. –  ChrisF Oct 31 '12 at 10:57
    
@Andrey for what it's worth, I also see features I like many times and despite my best efforts and my best shiny reputation they get no attention. Just keep in mind that only few of the suggestions will get real attention and even fewer will be implemented. –  Shadow Wizard Oct 31 '12 at 12:44
