I've experienced this three times already. When you're new no one pays you much attention and that's why I end up asking questions anonymously. Why do you ignore questions from non regulars.

It's actually a more complicated problem than that I think, most people use the My Feed to navigate but that means they only see questions asked in topics they follow or by people they follow, you can even filter explicitly for only topics by people you follow. As a result, if you have many followers, it's easy to get many answers, but if you don't have any followers, then those who filter for who they follow won't see you that easily.
It's a shame too, I don't know how to get a lot of followers other than trying to follow others and see if they follow back1
