Sometimes on a site's meta, I want to draw more attention to a question that has been sitting in the dark. Usually when this happens, I am even willing to offer my reputation as a bounty. But metas don't allow for bounties.
On main sites, we have a bounty feature to allow users to draw extra attention to questions. Admittedly, I could draw a little extra attention via posting in the site's chat, but it would feel much better if I could place a bounty. Additionally, I have seen recommendations to post links elsewhere online, but this only works if I am popular on any website other than the StackExchange network (which I am not).
Other times, a user's answer on meta is impressive, so I would be willing to offer a reward to that user.
Why don't we have a bounty feature on site metas? This could use main site reputation just like ordinary bounties; the only necessary difference would be where the bounty is posted. Meta sites would then add a "featured" tab to their question lists just like main sites.
If a bounty feature is too much to ask for, can we at least have a built-in way to draw attention to questions?
