I've probably missed it but how do you invoke the 48 hour rule?  Do you just add a post to your initial post saying "I invoke the 48 hour rule"?  And if that's the way you do it, how does that get additional attention?  I'd think it would just remove it from the Zero Reply listing which might reduce the likelihood of a reply.

Or is there a button somewhere to hit?  Could there be a button to hit?

Starting a new topic in the tinkering forum with a link to your thread and a subject line like this one usually does the trick.

Ok, that's different from how I thought it would be.  I just saw mention of the rule in another thread so that's why I got curious.  

Adding a button would be awesome, could that feature be added to the list of future upgrades if time/money/interest permit?  Thanks!

That could be true Rebecca.  I guess the Zero Replies section gets at it anyway.  I just realized we had a rule but no simple way to put it into effect so new folks may be confused by it.
 
It would give a normal human mental abilities to rival mine. To think it is just a tiny ad:
