I have managed to post a question that has become quite successful but I am not satisfied with any of the answers. Even the most popular answer with over 75 upvotes does not really provide any data, sources or references, just unsubstantiated assumptions.

I was thinking about setting a bounty on on the question but I would like to explain why I am not satisfied with the current answers and what do I expect. Can I modify the original question to contain such explanation, maybe only temporary? I am afraid that just adding a comment under the question will get lost (not even shown on the first page of comments).

What does UX think?


Yes, go ahead and update your question to indicate that you're looking for a different kind of answer. A bounty would be a great motivator now that activity around the question has cooled.

    There is no problem if you're just adding to the question. (The only issue could be if you completely reword the whole question therefore invalidating a load of the answers). Keep the existing text but add to it explaining what you're looking for. I agree that a bounty is a great way to get extra attention to it - in fact that is one of the main purposes of bounties. – JonW Mar 13 '12 at 12:37
