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

How to get attention for your old, unanswered questions

Often, questions get asked, answers are provided (that won't work, either because of a poorly asked question, or misunderstanding helper, it doesn't matter which). Edits are made to the question -- but it's too late! The question has fallen low on the question lists by this time - it's out of date. It's clearly rude to start a new question, but there's new material to be uncovered! How can we "bump" a question when appropriate, (without creating an infuriating tug-a-war between over-anxious clickers)?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

I normally re-edit my question, summing up the point so far, and adding more information if appropriate.

but from what I recall, that doesn't move your question to the top of the recent list... which just promotes reposting a similar question and adds to the list of things users have to sift through when searching. – Dave Mar 5 '10 at 16:46
