Is there something I'm doing wrong? Do I need to tag individuals to get replies? If so, who do I tag @username? I see other people usually get a response almost immediately after asking a question. ????Should I be using Unity Forum instead?????
Most of us who answer questions are professional developers, we don't always have time for some questions. The simple questions get tackled fast, ones that take a suggestion or a mere 30 lines of code. When we have time we answer more complex questions. The majority of questions are answered by less than 25 different people.
As such, some questions may get missed entirely, after all at least a 100+ questions are asked every day on here. It is definitely good etiquette to of not re-asked the question though.
So to answer your question, more than likely it is sheer luck of the draw. However most veteran forum uses AVOID necro-posting, even if it is an unanswered question, so once it is that old, it is far less likely to be answered.

There's nothing you need to do other than ask a well-formed, polite question, and hope that another user has experienced the same problem and can offer a solution.
Obviously, if it's a very specific problem you've encountered, the chances of that happening are slim. You can always update your question by adding a comment with any new information you've since discovered or solutions you've tried yourself.
If you think you've actually discovered a bug in Unity, you should report this to Unity via the bug reporter, not here. The Forums are when you want to ask for more subjective "opinion-based" advice rather than specific technical answers.

It can very much vary depending on what you question was and how specific you were. I just posted a question the other day and it was at the very least replied to. Mind linking your question so I can give it a shot?
