I accidentally managed to ask a duplicate question earlier today as I didn't find the duplicate. However the older question has no useful answers and I don't have enough rep to place a bounty and there's nothing to add by editing the question.

How can you get another answer to an old question without spending rep? It seems like a flaw in the system.

  • according to the Q, the problem is it goes into touch mode? sharemouse indicates with tablets a mouse staying connected would fix this. keyboard-and-mouse-sharing.com/faq.htm So if win8 is going into tablet mode, and the mouse driver for the KVM software is not faking a mouse (which is possible), try keeping a real mouse working on the win8 computer? If that works, answer the question :-) – Psycogeek Jun 6 '14 at 16:45

    There is a bounty reason which basically amounts to "I want this question to get more attention" the bounty system clearly isn't flawed for that reason. If you want to issue a bounty, gets some reputation, by posting answers to other questions. – Ramhound Jun 8 '14 at 8:02
  • Correct version of @allquixotic's comment: "Editing bumps it to the front page. It's not guaranteed to yield an answer, but it helps" – gparyani Sep 23 '14 at 15:11
  • Speaking of which, the Community randomly "pokes" (bumps) two "unanswered" questions (without any uprooted or accepted answer) every hour, so this helps clear out the list of unanswered questions. – gparyani Sep 23 '14 at 15:13

You can't. The system is set up so that you are forced to work for the site before you can get answers from the site.
