This question already has an answer here:
At times questions are asked without any proper responses that are useful to the person who posts questions, even though there might be few upvoted answers. These generally get pushed back quickly given the frequency of new questions. This would cause the question to escape the view of the right person capable of answering it.
Some people would be motivated to answer unanswered questions. Some might skip going through the question if they see enough number of votes on the already answered question. Or might not make past the first few pages of the unanswered questions.
Is there a proper way to bump up the question without breaking any rules?
