Having read this question about a reasonable feature request and seen that it was closed as a dupe of a question from 2013 (and 2011 by another user), I wonder what is the best way
- to leave a note to the SE team that I would also like to see such a feature added.
- to advertise certain feature requests after some years again to get some feedback if there are more users now which think the feature would be beneficial for the site
Just upvoting those old feature requests seems to have no impact, since chances are high noone just notice about the upvote to such an old question. Asking about the feature again seems to be the wrong way, too (will get closed as a dupe, see above). Adding a bounty, as suggested here, simply does not work on Programmer's meta.
So what can I do increase the chance a good suggestion which was probably just forgotten over the years won't vanish completely?
