If, after 2 days, there is still not an answer you like, you can offer a bounty, which will cost a bit of your own reputation -- anywhere from 50 to 500. The bountied question will appear with a special icon in all question lists, and there is also a particular page for bountied questions.
The bounty period lasts 7 days. Once you accept an answer, your bounty is awarded to the answerer, but remember that accepted bounty answers are permanent and cannot be changed. If you do not accept an answer in 7 days, The highest voted answer will be automatically accepted, and half the bounty will be awarded to the owner of that answer. In any case, you will always give up the amount of reputation specified in the bounty, so if you start a bounty, be sure to follow up and accept the best answer!
