If I want to draw people's attention to a post on a child meta site, 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?
