Back in January 2009, I asked a question on StackOverflow here. Within a few minutes, it gathered 2 upvotes and 4 answers. And then, it was closed as an exact duplicate by the same person who answered with the accepted answer. To be fair, the answer to both questions was the same, even though they were asked in different ways Since then, it has been made a favorite by three people, and viewed over 21,000 times. The question which came first, only about a week earlier, has been viewed less than 4,000 times. Ironic that I got my only "Famous Question" badge from a closed question.
Clearly, my question was better in terms of Google juice, even though it was technically the "same." It'd be great if it were reopened so that people could add or edit answers, especially because this question relates to a developing technology, CSS3.
However, since it's been "dead" for over a year and a half, I can't figure out a way to get enough attention to it to reopen it. I'm sure there are plenty of other questions like this. Is there a way to get attention to questions like these, besides posting on meta (which I have been reluctant to do)?
Edit: Well, no answers as to better solutions than posting on meta, but my question did certainly get enough attention to reopen it. :) Maybe that's just the best solution for now.
