I have an issue that is similar to one discussed in a question a long time ago. An answer to this question could also answer my question, however it was not answered such that it solved my problem. What can I do to make it appear again as a active question so that more users will want to answer it?
Edit the question, possibly adding your own explanations as to why the extant answers are inadequate. This assumes your question is not "substantially" different from the older one. (What "substantial" is in that case can of course be subjective.)
