Is it acceptable to offer an incentive for a successful answer in AskMe?

Is it considered in bad taste or a breach of policy to offer a prize or reward to whomever successfully solves a tech problem I'm tempted to post in askme? I've tried various customer support avenues and have had no luck so far.

If it is acceptable, what sort of incentive would be appropriate? Money strikes even me in poor taste. Any ideas, or should I just scrap the reward avenue?

What are the economics of metafilter?

What are the economics of metafilter? I assume that everyone gets some enjoyment out of posting things of interest (in economics terms, intrinsic motivation), but what sort of extrinsic payoff motivates posters in terms of posts -- number of replies? controversy? "this is good" statements? [more]
