Help getting unanswered questions answered

I've asked many questions (about 100) and there was only one, rather recent, question that didn't get a prompt solution. So it's incredible how much SO helps a lone programmer getting blind on his own code or eager to learn a new tool or technology.

But what should I do with my single one question I already asked and still pursue the answer to this question.

I suppose obvious next step would be a bounty but then I don't know. Do you have any specific thoughts about my situation?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

If you're still pursuing the answer, why have you already accepted an answer? –  Peter Olson Sep 26 '11 at 3:21
I'm not sure I understand your question. You've got several questions with zero answers not just one, and as Peter says, you've accepted an answer to the linked question. If your question is just "how do I promote this question to get more info", the answer is obviously add a bounty, and I again don't know what you're asking that is specific / additional to that. –  agf Sep 26 '11 at 3:39
Thanks a lot for the comments I will follow to make my case more intelligible. Some of the questions I asked were "bug questions" like user-related bugs and related to my own usage therefore those questions have become non-questions for me so my statement is that all questions I asked were solved / answered but one and that is the recent question. So while it may seem that I asked unanswered questions that might give a slightly improper view of my situation - I only consider one question unaswered though the records may indicate otherwise. –  Niklas in stockholm Sep 26 '11 at 6:44

Adding a (big) bounty would increase the visibility of your question, particularly if you're looking for better answers. However, the presence of an accepted answer might decrease the willingness of others to add answers.

Thank you for the answer. Since that question is important to me and only about 1 % of my questions seem to "need" a bounty I can think it's worth to set a bounty since that question is therefore special question eligible for bounty in 10 minutes –  Niklas in stockholm Sep 26 '11 at 6:46
