What should I do when a question I have asked with a bounty is not receiving any interaction/attention? I have answered all commenter's questions thoroughly. I edited the question recently to update its formatting. I know that it is against SE rules to repost on math.SE about the question, but as I have still gotten nowhere further with the question I am not sure what course of action to take.

The question is here:http://math.stackexchange.com/questions/241646/planar-graphs-all-equivalent-to-null-graph-by-equivalence-relation

Thank you, George

Your question was asked on the 20th of November. Five days is by no means a long time for a question to go unanswered.

Unless of course you are in hurry to obtain the answer, because this is question 9 from MIT PRIMES-USA, and ongoing competition whose deadline is November 26th.


If people would include the source of a given problem as part of the process of posting a question, things would get a little easier.

    $\begingroup$ Yes, but posting problems of an ongoing contest is really unethic... $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 26, 2012 at 11:00

    $\begingroup$ Probably it is only unethical if someone obtains a solution on math.se, then presents it as his own work to the contest. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @BeniBogosel, I agree. I asked a related thing a few days earlier, meta.math.stackexchange.com/questions/6629/… where it turned out the question on Main was not really from a current contest. My preference would be that nobody post current contest or examination questions, and homework or self-study question or past exam/contest questions would include the book title, author, and page number, for exams or contests the year. Maybe a jpeg image of the original, in case there is doubt about translation of the question into English. $\endgroup$
