I'll some of my last questions un-anon to illustrate the point. I keep getting like 1-4 answers , even for seemingly simple questions.
This may seem normal; like 3-4 would seem normal, but a lot of times the ones that have 3-4 accumulate over 24+ hours and before I would in general get more answers and would have 3-4 within an hour.
Has the traffic diminished? Or is there something about the way I ask my questions that's repelling people?

Sometimes that's just the way the cookie crumbles... I will seriously never understand why some questions get such little attention compared to others. I think the current traffic at the time of posting is usually mostly to blame, but still.
Also, having activity on your question will make it appear in the Live Feed.. so if you update your question or interact with the people who do answer, other people may then notice your question and be drawn in to leave their feedback, too.1

I think there is an art to having a good title and good question. I always ask anon and most times I garner 40 to 75 answers. If I ask a truly good question it will get 8 or 15 answers and sometimes less. If I ask a sarcastic question with a good title that has a personal touch for everyone I may get over 90 answers.1
