I intended to post a question, but found it had been posted on MSE months ago and received several answers, all up-voted though none yet accepted. Thinking it over, I discovered my own answer to the question and posted it. But who will see it? The OP will see it, and I'm allowed to alert one other who has posted a comment or answer to the question. Is there a recognized way to get a wider viewing? Normally I follow only new and recent questions, and suppose most others do the same. Does that mean I'm most likely talking to myself when I attempt to answer an old question?
