In the past, we've had some "bounty dances."

In the spirit of end-of-semester end-of-Gregorian-year Winter/Summer Bash spirit, I'd like to borrowing / shamelessly steal the previous idea, which seems to have fallen away over the last year or three. All credit to Martin-マーチン.

Let's get some Bounties rolling...

Bounties are a good way to draw attention to questions, draw traffic to the site, and reward newer users with internet points for good answers.

Sometimes, you come across a good question that did not get attention or answers. We have a pile of unanswered, highly-voted questions. Maybe you're interested in an answer, but don't want to give up 100 reputation.

I don't need or care to gain reputation points, so I'm happy to give them away.

What are the rules for this?

It's quite simple. There are only a few rules.


  • A question that should be awarded a bounty to draw attention should be at least about a month old. (Preferably the asker is still active.)
  • Should have a score of five or more, but not more than 15.
  • Should not have an accepted answer. (In cases that the answer is outdated this point can be voided.)
  • The last bounty on this question may not be younger than half a year.
  • No questions.


  • An answer that is excellent (score > 15), but not the accepted answer, can get an additional bounty to mark it as great and/or reward the contributor.
  • The question must be of our minimal quality standards, proper formatting, etc.
  • The answer should not yet have a bounty awarded.
  • The answerer must not be a 10k reputation user or yourself.

Conditions are subject to change.

    $\begingroup$ Oh that's a nice idea. Thank you for the initiative. I'm off course offering my services as a bounty donor. Have a very merry end of year y'all! $\endgroup$ Commented Dec 20, 2022 at 19:54

This question remained unanswered for a long time, and now has a highly-rated and accepted answer:

Single-molecule magnet with electrically-controlled permeability: How does the Titan Shield from Deus Ex work?

So it doesn't conform to the rules of this meta post, but I wanted to share nonetheless.
