I would like to know if there is a way to bump an unanswered question in Askubuntu, or something, before it sinks into oblivion? Thank you
There are a lot of different ways to "bump" your question (or others that you're interested in). One way is to edit it adding more information, like documenting what you've tried, more data about the issue, etc. Performing minor edits just to bump your question will eventually make the question a Community Wiki and you'll no longer gain reputation on that question.
