What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

If I want to draw people's attention to a post on a meta site (not MSO), how can I do that? I want to get people involved in a discussion over at Area 51 to see what they think of the idea, because it requires opinions from the community. However, posts on the discussion zone of Area 51 rarely get activity, so it seems like I'm out of luck, unless something is changed. And from the sounds of How can we get people to participate on Meta sites?, it seems like this is a problem on all child metas.

That post is similar, but while it talks about increasing activity in general, I am talking about how to raise participation to an individual post; the equivalent of a bounty

I can't use bounties because reputation is the same.

Could there be another way of drawing attention to individual posts?

@raam86 There are no bounties (or reputation) on per site Metas. MSO is special. –  Yannis Jul 15 '13 at 7:54

Share it on Facebook/Twitter/other social networks? –  Old Checkmark Jul 15 '13 at 8:13
    
@doubleDown When you aren't popular on social media networks, it won't do a big deal –  Cody Guldner Jul 16 '13 at 16:48
