I have posted a question once and did not get any answer. So how do I make people to see the question. It seems to me that the question goes down in the list so no one checks it. So is there some way to keep it on the top so that more people notice it. And also how can I request some specific person for an answer. For example in one of my question's a person posted try asking Asaf Karagila. So how do I do that?

Three simple steps:
- Ask a question. (Not in a comment, not as an answer, but as a question.)
- Tag it with some combination of elementary-set-theory or set-theory with other things. The difference between those two tags are sometimes mystical and esoteric, and Asaf may chew you out for using the wrong one, but at least you will have gotten his attention.
- Wait. (I have it on good authority that Asaf rarely sleeps and probably personally reviews all questions in those two tags.)
If you are more statistically inclined, I would suggest looking at Asaf's user history to figure out the most opportune times (day of the week, hours of the day) to ensure rapid engagement.
But in all seriousness: if you don't feel that your question has been sufficiently seen or answered, we have a help center item for that.
