I've asked this question on SO and set up a 150 bounty but I'm still not happy with the answers provided, is there any way to extend the bounty, maybe adding some extra points on top of the bounty?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
That's an extremely subjective question, though -- what's the "correct" answer? The one that most satisfies your internal sense of aesthetics?
I'd also note that you have quite a few answers, which is the point of a bounty.
edit: this is now possible.
A bounty is a contract.
Your part of the contract is that after the set period of time you provide points to award for the best answer, where "best" is defined as either the answer you select or the highest-voted answer if you select none.
The community's part of the contract is to provide your question with extra attention. Not a good answer. Not even any answers at all necessarily. The only thing promised to you is that your question will receive additional attention. It seems like that's happened here, contract fulfilled.
Wouldn't that be unfair to the more highly voted answers on the question as it exists? They know that even if you don't select an answer, they'll get at least a partial bounty award for the highest-voted answer.
If you're up for awarding more points for a better answer, why not just ask a second bounty question with a focus on the points you feel were overlooked in the existing answers?
