If I posted a question (which received no comments or responses), and a single up vote, how long would I need to wait before bumping it, if that's allowed at all?

I would post the link to my question but then again it I don't want people getting the wrong idea.

    Don't bump it. Please read What should I do if no one answers my question?

    It's not difficult to find a link to your only Super User question ;)

  • An up-vote or down-vote and no response right away doesn’t mean anything. This site is not a frantic help desk. As long as your question is clear and tagged correctly you should get some response. And if you get no response? Don’t take it personally. It just means nobody knows how to answer or assist you. I’ve actually answered a few questions that are days, weeks and months old and it helped folks. Sep 20, 2015 at 4:24

    I never implied it was a frantic help desk. Nor am I taking it personally. I got my answer already about bumping but thank you for the input there

"Bumping" for the sake of bumping is generally frowned upon here.

You can do a few things - enhance the question with more details (though clearly, you can only do so much - don't add inane details or minor edits to bump. We like edits to be substantial) or offer a bounty if you have enough reputation.
