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 had posted a question some days back on SO, but due to lack of knowledge my description in the question wasn't very informative. So I did not get good replies which answered my question.

I did some research myself, but still haven't found answer to the question. However now I edited my question to clearly ask what I am looking for. After editing I do not see my question being viewed or any new answer posted. Is the edited question shown up in the newly asked questions list.

Should I post a new question for it. Even putting a bounty hasnt helped

What should be done in such a case?

@Yogesh: you only just edited the question 7 hours ago. And "vim" isn't the most popular tag on SO, and it's the weekend most places. – John Saunders Mar 20 '10 at 3:11

I think the community user automatically bumps questions every now and then, but I don't know the exact rules.

Couple things:

  • When you edited the question it was bumped back to the home page. Please please please don't duplicate the question.
  • You just edited it and replied to some of the comments asking for clarification to ping them for new insight. Either way, its Friday (and now the weekend) - you'd be surprised how many actually have lives outside SO and will likely get to it on Monday instead of working.
  • A bounty only guarantees that more people will look at it, not that you'll get more and/or better answers. I think a better rephrasing of the question (on Monday) would better help than the bounty.
