If I happen to come across a answer from which I have judged that the answerer is likely to at least give some advice on one of my own questions, is it OK to post a comment on that answer linking to my question and state that I want to invite the answerer to take a look at my question?
The positive side I see is that it will set a signpost for others who are interested in my question, but since the two questions are related, they may have used the wrong keyword Googling and arrived at the other page.
The negative side is that some people may deem it as an incorrect (or indecent) way to draw attention to my own question and others may find my link distractive, especially when my question has not yet received a good answer.
So I would like to ask whether there are some rules on this practice or on "invitation", in general? Or, in practise, is it likely that such a comment will get downvoted? Please point me to the right place if there are. Any help would be appreciated.
