I believe we have some answers that deserve more recognition, and possibly some questions that deserve a little more attention than they may have received.
Bounties are one of the primary tools for fixing this problem, but I recognize that not everyone has enough reputation to feel comfortable posting bounties.
Therefore, I am making the following proposition:
If you have a question you want to see more attention, or know of an answer that you feel is outstanding and worthy of an additional award, post it here as an answer.
Post a link to the question or answer, along with a short description of who the person is you're nominating (so there's no ambiguity) and why you think the answer is awesome, or why you think the question deserves more attention.
Post only one suggestion per answer to this meta question, but you can post as many suggestions as separate answers as you'd like.
Please do not nominate your own question or answer; any self-promotion will be disqualified.
- Every answer that receives 2 upvotes will receive a bounty of at least 50 reputation.
- Every answer that receives 5 upvotes will receive a bounty of at least 100 reputation.
- Every answer that receives 10 upvotes will receive a bounty of 500 reputation.
Do note that bounty system restrictions mean that we can't give a second bounty on a question unless it is larger than the previous bounty. This means that if you nominate a question that has already had a bounty, or an answer to a question that has had a bounty already, it may not be eligible unless you earn enough votes on your recommendation to qualify for a bounty larger than the original.
As an additional incentive, the person who makes the suggestion in this meta thread that receives the most upvotes will have one of their answers awarded a 500 reputation bounty (you must have a positively scored answer to qualify).
Voting will be tallied on August 6th, exactly 2 weeks from the date and time of this post. Any votes received after that time will not count for purposes of this contest.
So get out there and start finding those exceptional questions and answers!
EDIT: Voting has closed. Thanks to Justkt for taking the time to find some suggestions. I've set the bounties on the two questions that reached the nomination threshold of 2 votes (before the deadline; I see some votes were made after the eligibility period), and I will be awarding Justkt's answer to this question a 500 point bounty. I was pleased to find this answer, as I believe it merits an additional reward on its own, regardless of the offer I made in this meta discussion. It is very detailed, thorough, and contains links to useful resources and citations. That answer deserves more than the 10 upvotes it received, so I feel very good about awarding this bounty.
