First, I have a simple problem, namely, how to embed source code or HTML in Open Office Org Presentation (OOoP).
Then I came to SO to ask this question, and I found another question already exists, with no good answer, 2 years old. The answer suggest that if I know how to embed HTML then I should do the job, but that is the point.
I thought to ask another question, but it would risk being closed as a duplicate. I was in doubt what to do. Then I came to meta to ask for guidance. That was my second problem.
I started typing the new question and I discovered that another question already with this subject is here in meta. I read it carefully. It said there to not ask the question again. So I wrote some comments, trying to get some answers for these two problems. Also, I did all the tips in the first question (comments, vote the answer down, write more info, etc., to try to bump that question up).
The problem is that none of that worked. I got no attention from the original question, and no comments from the meta question. Now I have a third problem: what should I do? This is the meta-meta-question.
Edited: Question of order:
- If you want to answer how to embed HTML in Open Office Presentation, you should go to question 1.
- If you want to answer how other tools (like voting down, bounties, etc.) might help me regarding the problem on raising attention on question 1, you should go to question 2.
- If you want to discuss how this mingled things happens, here is the right place. How come I needed to ask a third question? What we really should discuss here? The fact that people don't like to answer comments in someone else's questions? The fact people don't like to ask questions in comments in someone else's questions? How can improve the site to avoid this to happen? (Maybe it is a discussion between the big-dogs, and we have not too much to add here. Just please, remember, what I really need is an answer to question 1, please, please...)
2nd edition. Accepting the suggestion bellow, I asked this new question regarding problem 1.
