How to get attention for your old, unanswered questions

I posted a feature request here about integrating a Drawing tool into Stack Overflow.
But I posted it on the wrong day it was a holiday that day(Labour Day).
So contrary to Meta Stack Overflow I just received 3 answers to a feature request question and not much banter or criticism.

Now I would like to repost it so that I could get criticized a bit more.
What should I do? What rules does Meta have on reposting questions?

This information is just as valid on Meta as on SO:

How to get attention for your old, unanswered questions


That questions seems to have gotten some traction. But no, reposting the question isn't helpful because somebody will close it as a duplicate :)


The same rules as all the other site.

  • Edit the question to add more or less information
  • Start a Bounty

Apart from the relaxed attitude on MSO the rules remain the same.

  • What does "Start a Bounty" mean?

    You can give up some of your rep and give it to someone else for giving you an answer. Look at the bottom of the FAQ: meta.stackoverflow.com/faq Sep 9, 2009 at 14:33

    If you go to your question there will be a "Start a Bounty" button just below the question.
